Carrying in ATV parks
« on: November 08, 2017, 11:31:41 PM »
Want to start visiting a few different ATV parks in Texas to ride some trails.  I would like to be able to conceal carry my handgun (or have in ATV box).  Is there any issue carrying at an ATV park?

Hi TXER,

Thanks for your question. In Texas, you are allowed to carry a handgun concealed on your person in your motor vehicle or concealed anywhere in your motor vehicle. The Texas definition of “motor vehicles” includes ATVs.

If you have a Texas License to Carry (LTC), you can also open carry in a belt or shoulder holster.

Remember, even without an LTC, you are allowed to conceal a firearm on your person while in the vehicle or in your ATV, but you can’t open carry.  This means that it should stay locked up in a box or cased while you’re out of the ATV.
