This classroom time will go over all the Texas State laws that surround your ability to carry a handgun. Formerly the Concealed Handgun License (CHL) this course now incorporates subjects such as the new Open Carry Laws and up to date current law and regulations that are constantly updated. Defender’s LTC course always includes the opportunity for each individual to complete the firearms qualification portion of the course the same day.
Defender Outdoors offers the best LTC class because we have everything under one roof. Unlike other places where you would need to take a class, then go to the range, then get your finger printing, Defender allows you to get everything done at one location in one day. You’ll be focused and comfortable in our classrooms before heading directly into the range to qualify for your exam. You’ll also be able to get your state-certified fingerprinting done at the in-house fingerprinting station ($10 fingerprinting fee is NOT included in tuition – must pay separately). Our professional teachers can help you at every step of the way and offer assistance to help you complete the requirements for getting your handgun license.
Fingerprinting services are provided on-site by IdentoGo. You will need to schedule an appointment directly through them, and they do not take walk-ins. To schedule your appointment, please call 888-467-2080.
The shooting qualification requires that you must be able to load, unload, and fire the handgun proficiently. If you are new to or inexperienced with shooting we strongly recommend taking either the LTC Prep or Handgun Fundamentals course. This course does not teach basic firearm skills or shooting instruction. (More info)
