LTC & Concealed Carry Classes

The LTC (Formerly CHL) Course is the Texas required training program for first time applicants.

The concealed handgun course consists of a state mandated 4-6 classroom hours of instruction from a DPS certified Instructor.


This is not a firearm training class. This class only covers the Texas laws surrounding carrying a firearm and use of force. The shooting portion of this class is strictly a test. If you are new to firearms, we highly recommend taking our New Pistol Shooter class first.

Topics include:
• Texas laws pertaining to the Use of Force/Deadly Force and weapons; safety and use of handguns, holsters and secure open carrying of handguns;
• Non-violent dispute resolution;
• Safe and proper storage practices for firearms emphasizing practices that eliminate potential for accidental injury to a child.


Classroom Portion Includes:

A combination of lecture, A/V presentation and hands-on exercises will be utilized to keep the class safe, enjoyable and informative.


Proficiency Test:

The Firearms Proficiency portion consists of a 50-round course of fire at 3, 7 and 15 yds.

We offer the LTC Shooting Test separate as well for those taking the online course.
