Handgun License $80
Texas has changed the name of the Concealed Handgun License (CHL) to License To Carry ( LTC ). In the LTC CLASS you are required and expected to already know proper firearms safety and how to shoot and load your pistol. Ranch Patrol has a Safety Class to get you familiar with your pistol. 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 .
