Texas License to Carry

Formerly known as Concealed Handgun License or CHL

There are two ways to get your License to Carry with Texas Gun Club

This course provides the education and assessment necessary to obtain a Texas License to Carry. It includes the four hours of instruction as mandated by the Texas Department of Public Safety. Students are required to pass a firearms proficiency demonstration and a written exam.

PLEASE NOTE: You will not learn how to shoot a handgun in this course. If you are new to handguns, we recommend that you take Handgun 101 prior to this certification. You must be able to demonstrate proficiency with a handgun in order to complete the LTC certification.
