Filing For Texas Handgun License/ CHL | Go Strapped Firearms Training

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.

Fees for our Class:
  • $79 - Texas Concealed Handgun Licensing Course

  • $150- Introductions to Handguns and CHL Combo Course

 

Additional Cost on Class Date:
  • Range Fee (typically under $20 per person)

  • 50 rounds of ammunition

Go to the Texas DPS website and register online.
