National Rifle Association
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.

Handgun License Checklist

Please note that the Texas LTC 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.

Basic Pistol

Many people who are interested in getting a gun license have not yet learned to shoot, so for them, we also offer this:

Learn to Shoot

. Done entirely at a private range SE of McKinney, we spend about an hour on the firing line learning safety and fundamentals, and an hour in supervised shooting.

  • Firearm safety
  • Handgun features and nomenclature
  • Revolver vs. semi-automatic
  • Action types
  • Ammunition types
  • Safe pistol loading and clearing
  • Establishing the shooting platform
  • Laser pistol training
  • Dry-fire and live-fire practice
These students generally do quite well on the LTC Proficiency. Note that getting a gun license in Texas is not required, but highly recommended. Ask me why.

Intermediate Shooting

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.
