About the Texas Concealed Carry Class:
Only this one class is required to obtain your Texas CHL.
The Class includes EVERYTHING needed to apply:
- The classroom portion involves four to six hours of instruction by our Texas concealed handgun instructor certified by the DPS.
- The course curriculum covers:
- Laws related to weapons and the use of deadly force
- Handgun use and safety
- Non-violent dispute resolution
- Safe storage of handguns
- The classroom instruction concludes with a 25-question exam. The applicant must score 70 percent or better to pass.
- The shooting proficiency test follows the classroom section of the class. The test involves 50 shots at timed intervals at a B-27 target at distances of 3, 7 and 15 yards. The B-27 target is roughly the size of a human silhouette. Scoring is based on the combat system and passing is 70 percent (175 points out of a possible 250). Eighty percent of the shots are taken at 3 and 7 yards; so, it is possible to pass the test with no score at the 15-yard distance. It is not a difficult test. However, passing the test does requires the student to demonstrate reasonable shooting ability, safe gun handling and familiarity with loading and safety procedures. (Additional detail here)
Please note you do NOT need to own/have a gun to take this class. You may borrow one from our instructor.
*Classes may be canceled if a minimum of two students do not sign up. If that happens we will do everything possible to find an agreeable substitute date for you.
