    to carry a rifle or shotgun that is loaded in public. When applicable the magazine should be removed and the action open. These weapons don't holster so the trigger is unguarded and barrel is not assured to stay pointed in a safe direction.

    My understanding is this current Texas size crazy (OCT) has to do with an odd feature of Texas law. It is legal to carry a pistol concealed with a license and it is legal to open carry a rifle or shotgun, but it is illegal to open carry a holstered pistol. That does seem like a weird oversight in the law (oversight which direction is up to interpretation.)
