I chose Sandy's class after watching the YouTube promo on his web page. Glad I did. He accommodates folks who know a little, a lot, and next to nothing. He is very patient with people who haven't shot much, yet keeps very good control over the line when it's time to hit the target.

Learned a lot in the class, particularly around the moving gray areas in TX and nationally. If you're like I am, you'd almost rather be shot than shoot someone else. But current events would call for us to be aware and prepared for loved ones and neighbors' sake.

Highly recommended, and I plan to take a tactical class with him soon.

We offer Texas LTC classes, private training on pistol and shotgun, and pistol classes, for individuals from the localities of Dallas, Plano, Carrollton, Richardson, Allen, Frisco, Anna, McKinney, Trenton, Blue Ridge, Leonard, Bonham, and nearby communities.

Texas CHL classes (AKA LTC in Texas, or License To Carry) follow the Texas state-mandated requirements, and are taught as directed by The Texas Dept of Public Safety. Classroom instruction requires approximately 4 hours, plus a short test, plus the shooting proficiency test. This is a no-fail course.

Texas CHL/LTC Classes


We offer the

License to Carry Class

for just $75.00 (including range fees). 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
  • Holsters
  • 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

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 NE of McKinney, we spend about 2 hours in a small class learning safety and fundamentals, and an hour in supervised shooting. The classroom is air conditioned, with restrooms. (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
  • Laser pistol training
  • Dry-fire and live-fire practice
Note that getting a gun license in Texas is not required in order to either buy a gun, or keep one at home on in your vehicle.

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.

We follow NRA and DPS protocols, and we take handgun safety seriously. Please see the CHL and Pistol Class Schedule

Defensive Shotgun


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.

School Safety Certification / Active Shooter Training


For teachers and other employees of public/private school systems, this two-day class is intensive active shooter training. It includes identifying threats, barricading classrooms, helping students escape, self-defense strategies with or without a firearm, combat mindset, and other topics. McKinney Firearms Training is the first company in Dallas certified by Texas DPS to teach this certification course.

TCOLE Range Proficiency
