Reciprocity would be largely meaningless if they didn't.
Sorry if I wasn't clear. I was referring to the State Capitol, which does not operate under the LTC law (e.g. reciprocity and all that).
What law,do they operate under? :???:
Their own. :) The Legislature makes its own security rules, because of separation of powers issues IIRC. The prohibition on state and local government entities banning licensed carry and the "fines for signs" law do not apply to the Legislature.

Well regardless, I was proof. Officer did ask if I had my Texas LTC, told her nope... Just moved here...then she waved me in. That was the end of that. Beautiful place that Texas state Capitol!

I dunno about the officer with the loud mouth (in the Capitol), but I didn't think they let out of state licensees in with handguns. Pleasantly surprised that they do.

When I went to the capitol the line for (then) CHL was clearly marked so I just walked over, showed my license, they scanned it and that was that. No muss no fuss.

Yeah due to reciprocity with Texas and Utah, I knew it wasn't going to be a problem. Tons of out of staters visit Austin and go see the Texas State Capitol.

Experience dealing with LEOs during events etc?

I HAVE A UTAH CCW. I just moved here about 3 months ago, working on my Texas CHL will start the process next month.

Went to the Texas state fair in Dallas. As I walked through security, I showed one of the sec guards my CCW permit. He literally screams out, "oh you got a gun?" Cool, see the officer over there. I gave em this look, like..yes please scream louder and announce it from the top of your lungs. I walk over to the LEO, show him my Utah CCW and he tells me have a good day.


Texas State Capitol. I walk in, I ask one of the officers, Can I ask you a question, he looks at me and says...:Oh you have a firearm. Again very loud. He said walk over to that officer there and show her your credentials. I proceed to pull out my Utah CCW with my Texas License. She was very rude!!! She said...wheres your Texas CHL. I said, I just moved here and working on it. She hands me my permit back and waves me in!!

So far the twice I had to deal with LEOs have been uneventful with my Utah CCW. Except for the very rude woman DPS officer inside the State Capitol.
