Sorry i am still learning how to reply. I have had my CCW for a year. I am a little nervous to carry down here. All the web sites I have researched said that texas accepts Utah CCW's but I talked to a cop and just to see what he knew I asked him if my permit was legal here and he replied "I dont know" so I dont feel like getting arrested especially being in the military thats just alot of extra problems.

If you're concealing (and, as I understand it OC is simply not an option in Texas), how would the police know you have it? They'd find out if you were involved in a shooting, obviously, but in that case you're clearly better off having to deal with the extra hassle than potentially being dead. They'd also find out if you were detained and patted down for some other reason, but in that case it seems like the original reason is as likely to be a problem as having a weapon.

It's your choice, but personally I'd verify the statutes myself and if it is clear that the Utah permit is honored, I'd print out a copy of the relevant Texas law and carry it with my Utah CFP.

I looked up the Texas law and found that the way reciprocity with other states works there is that the governor has to specifically negotiate an agreement with each state whose permit is to be honored, after the Texas Attorney General determines that the issuing state's background check is good enough. Texas put an agreement with Utah in place in September of 2004, and a copy of the agreement is on the Texas Department of Public Safety's web site. All of the agreements are here, including the agreement with Utah. I'd print that out and carry it with my CFP in Texas, to show to any Texas LEO that was unsure.
