Very professional course taught by Mr. Keathley. No feeling of rush or impatience by
Mr. Keathley; but the class schedule and timeline were held to very well, even with the
allowance of questions by the group. That is a sign of excellent preparation and strong
knowledge of what is being presented. The classroom portion was informative and easy to follow.
The outside range location is excellent for allowing one to stay focused on the course.
I have witnessed an indoor range teaching LTC and even though there were multiple
instructors, at least one of the instructors always seemed to be moving back and forth
trying to communicate with everyone. Mr. Keathley kept strong control over the outdoor
range portion of the course, while showing patience if someone had a gun jam or misfire.
He kept everyone on the same page and informed on what they should be doing. I do not
recall anyone firing more or less rounds than he had instructed, throughout the entire course.
Great command and discipline and ability to share knowledge. I Highly recommend any
courses taught at McKinney Firearms Training.

Texas CHL Classes
We offer the
License to Carry Class for just $75.00 (including range fees) (over $100.00 at Cabela's). These are often small classes, so
you have plenty of opportunity to interact with the instructor and the class, and ask questions. The Texas License to Carry class takes about 4 hours to complete,
and consists of several modules, covering
- Laws that relate to carrying a handgun
- Laws that relate to use of force and deadly force
- Handgun use and safety
- Non-violent dispute resolution
- Proper storage practices for handguns
Everything will be completed in one day. Private classes are available. Non-English speakers, go here.
Handgun License Checklist
Many people who are interested in the License class have not yet learned to shoot, so for them, we also offer this:
Learn to Shoot. Done entirely at a private range NE of McKinney, we spend about 1 hour
learning safety and mechanics, and an hour in supervised shooting. Small class. (Recommended)
- Firearm safety
- Handgun features and nomenclature
- Revolver vs. semi-automatic
- Action types
- Ammunition types
- Safe pistol loading and clearing
- Eye dominance
- Establishing the shooting platform
- Dry-fire and live-fire practice
For those who already know how to load, fire, and clear their gun, this private live-fire pistol instruction
is intended to fine-tune your skills. Training may include more advanced defensive skills, like one-handed shooting,
rapid-fire, and flash picture sighting.

Murder rate drops.
We follow NRA and DPS protocols, and we take handgun safety seriously. Please see the CHL and Pistol Class Schedule
An introduction to the tactical shotgun, the ultimate in home defense. Learn about the equipment, the ammo choices, and the tactics, and experience shooting it.
The shotgun is the most devastating weapon it is legal for a civilian to own, but requires little skill to operate.
Please note that the Texas CHL class is not about learning to shoot. You should already have at least minimal proficiency with a handgun before signing up.
If in doubt, go to a range and see if you can hit a paper plate at 3 yards 3 out of 4 times. If you can, you should be fine.
