Sandy Keathley's License to Carry (LTC) class was an excellent course. Mr. Keathley's professionalism and knowledge is highly demonstrated during my time with him inside and outside of the classroom. He is inviting and attentive to questions, and responds accordingly with detailed answers. During classroom time (the duration is about a four hours), is insightful and engaging for both those who know absolutely nothing about firearms/self-defense, and/or for those who happen to be very well versed in the subject matter. The format used during the presentation and approach were sophisticated; and his expertise translates well with others. The shooting range is simple, but proficient. Mr. Keathley's professionalism was in full force - firearm safety was his number one priority, and he exercised this efficiently. My experience outside of classroom was outstanding. Mr. Keathley responded to emails in a timely fashion, was precise, and systematic with his answer(s). He was a great guide for all of my questions. If you seek to take a License to Carry (LTC) class, I highly recommend Sandy Keathley.

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
- 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.
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)
Note that getting a gun license in Texas is not required in order to either buy a gun, or keep one at home or
in your vehicle.
