    i live in Texas, so that's the law i'm looking for.

    is it the same as knives? i googled around and found alot on knives, daggers, black jacks, clubs, etc. but not once was there mention of the words "sword" or "long blade" or anything.

    can anyone link me to a texas state ruling on transportation/carrying of a full sword?

    Under Texas law you can carry a sword if you are one of the following:


    who is a peace officer, Renaissance fair attendee, special investigators under Article 2.122 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, Highlander, Pirate/Buccaneer,parole officers, Ninjas, community supervision and corrections department officers appointed or employed under Section 76.004; , Government Code, honorably retired peace officer or federal criminal investigator who holds a certificate of proficiency issued under Section 1701.357, Occupations Code, a district attorney, criminal district attorney, or county attorney who is licensed to carry a concealed handgun under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code.

    seems that way, I would suggest it be in the trunk not in the seat next to you........knife laws in general are very fuzzy,but like if you bought it you would have to travel to get it home, etc, probably depends on why you say you have it......

    Thanks, that's exactly how I plan to do it. Sheath it, wrap it in a coat and put it in the trunk. I used to do the same with my air rifles, just always freaked out someone will see me unload it and call the cops on me. :noes:
