Texas has changed the name of the Concealed Handgun License (CHL) to License To Carry ( LTC ).

The LTC class is not a firearms training class . The LTC class covers law , where you can and can't carry , laws that relate to the use of force and deadly force , holsters and safe storage of your firearms. The LTC class is a 4 to 6 hour long class plus range time . We offer a range on site so no range fees are required . After the class , there will be a short multiple choice/ T/F test and a shooting test. The shooting test is a timed test and covers accuracy , safe handling , and following directions . B27 targets will be used .

What to bring to LTC class:

 You will need a pistol , does not matter if a revolver or semi -auto is used  and there are no caliber size requirements  so a 22 can be used  now .  No laser or red dot sights allowed, 50 rounds of factory loaded ammo ( no reloads ),  plus hearing and eye protection . Do not wear shorts or open toe shoes . No loose clothing for hot spent brass to catch in. When you attend the LTC class leave your pistol unloaded and locked in your vehicle . Bring in class with you your I.D. , something to eat and drink (no alcohol) and a learning attitude . The LTC class cost $60, $10 discount for groups 4 and larger.
