Filing for your Texas LTC/CHL License? Learn About the Process HERE

NOTE: The Texas LTC/CHL Class IS NOT a Beginners Shooting Class. You MUST KNOW HOW TO OPERATE AND SHOOT A GUN in order to pass the CHL Proficiency Test. DO NOT Register for this Class if you do not know how to shoot without making arrangments prior to the class to learn the basics. You can do that in our Introductions to Handguns and LTC/CHL Combo Course.

Texas License To Carry/Concealed Handgun Licensing Process

1. Attend Our Class

Our classes are taught in a relaxed, comfortable, non-intimidating atmosphere. Due to the recent shortening of required hours of instruction by the State, you will need to know how to shoot and how to operate your gun before coming to class. The shooting portion of the curriculum is a Shooting Proficiency Test, not Basic Firearm Instruction. We cover the legal aspects of concealed carry, safe firearm handling and storage, the use of force and deadly force and nonviolent dispute resolution.

  • $79 - Texas Concealed Handgun Licensing Course

  • $150- Introductions to Handguns and CHL Combo Course
