Concealed handgun license holders in Texas would be allowed to carry a revolver or semi-automatic pistol, regardless of what they trained with on the shooting range under a bill advancing in the Texas Legislature.
The bill passed the Senate on Tuesday night and still needs a House vote to send it to Gov. Rick Perry. Texas has more than 500,000 concealed handgun license holders.
The bill also would prevent cities from banning possession of an air gun.
