LICENSE TO CARRY STEPS

The procedure to obtain a license to carry a handgun in Texas can be confusing. To make things simple we listed recommended steps below.

1. TAKE CLASSROOM PORTION

4 hr min - 6 hr max: This section covers things such as Texas law regarding firearms, safe storage & situational awareness.

2. COMPLETE SHOOTING PREFICIENCY

Average 1 hr: 20 rounds at 3 yards, 20 rounds at 7 yards and 10 rounds at 15 yards.

  • Experienced Shooters - May take steps 1 & 2 on the same day
  • New Shooters - You can do step 1 and finish your proficiency at a later time

IMPORTANT NOTE

It is NOT recommended that you attempt both class time and shooting on the same day if you are not already proficient with a firearm.
