Firearms Proficiency Portion


Getting A Handgun License is now easier!

Thanks to Texas House Bill 3784 that paved the way for online course providers to deliver the classroom instruction portion of the LTC training requirement online.  Upon completion of the LTC online course, you will receive your LTC-101 form.   You must also pass the firearms portion of the course.

Contact us to schedule the shooting portion to complete you LTC training.

  • A quality handgun
  • A holster
  • At least (2) magazines (makes things easier for you on the firing line)
  • Sturdy belt to support the holster

  • Eye protection (prescription eyeglasses will suffice)
  • Hearing protection (electronic recommended)
