In this class you will obtain your license to carry a handgun, which allows you to legally carry it on your person (body) when it matters most.
Obtaining A Texas State License to Carry requires a 4-6 hour certification course which is mandated by the Texas Department of Public Safety (TXDPS). At the end of the classroom portion, you will take a 25 question multiple-choice and True / False exam. Don’t worry, it’s not timed.
During the class, we will cover:
- Laws that relate to weapons and to the use of deadly force
- Handgun use and safety, including use of restraint holsters and methods to ensure the secure carrying of openly carried handguns
- Non-violent dispute resolution
- Proper storage practices for handguns with an emphasis on storage practices that eliminate the possibility of accidental injury to a child
To qualify for your license, you must also complete a 50-round shooting proficiency test.
You will be required to fire from three distances:
3 yards – 20 rounds fired
7 yards – 20 rounds fired
15 yards – 10 rounds fired
