Texas License to Carry a Handgun (LTC) Training

A Texas License to Carry a Handgun (LTC) is one of the best steps a person can take for protection from the hazards that surround us each day. But it takes more than just an LTC to safely and effectively participate as an armed member of society. It takes ability, confidence, knowledge of the law, situational awareness, and a constant focus on safety. Quality training can give you all this and more, preparing you to be among the many who refuse to be defenseless.

Our classes can be held at your location or ours, with the shooting portion conducted at a nearby range.

You can get all the training and testing you need for your Texas License to Carry a Handgun (LTC) in as little as half a day.  Classes can be structured to suit your needs.

LTC Original Course

The State of Texas requires 4 to 6 hours of training before a person is eligible for a Texas LTC. This course is designed to meet that requirement while equipping you with the knowledge you need to safely, legally, and confidently carry a handgun.  Range fees, passport photos (if needed), CHL-16 laws and statutes booklet, and all standard forms are included (many classes do not include these).  Topics include:

  • Safe use and storage of firearms
  • LTC Laws
  • Weapons Laws
  • Nonviolent Dispute Resolution
  • Use of Force and Deadly Force
  • Situational Awareness
  • Options for Carry

The course also includes a written test and shooting proficiency test.
