    Yep. That's the same batch of laws that legalized the Mossberg Shockwave... that is built in Texas, but for 2 more weeks is illegal.

    It will be nice to not have to worry about the double edged, or too long knife restrictions. Time to get a Gladius!

    My Aunt still had her first husband's West Point Sword when she died in Oct. 2015. She willed it to my oldest cousin. She had two girls. I would do about (Now I said "about" anything )for that thing.

    In Texas, you also have the right to dress as a pirate and carry a sword. Parrot on the shoulder is optional.

    Mine also has the metal scabbard but that's all I know about it. The only one I do know about is the one above it that was given to my dad by a Montagnard chief in Vietnam for helping his village. This one has a cool teakwood scabbard.

    I think it's a good idea, and goes along with open and concealed carry. People might learn to be more polite, if they survive the experience.

    Man, those were classics. I loved cartoons back in the day. They just aren't the same anymore.
