Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe you automatically get an extra 5 years tacked on to your sentance if you have possesion of a gun during a crime in Texas. You don't even have to use it during the crime. It just has to have been readily accessible when you were committing the crime and the extra 5 years is tacked on. (example: Dope dealer gets busted selling drugs, and they find a pistol in his trunk.)
