National Rifle Association
Very good class. Experienced trainer with excellent program. I took my "afraid of guns" wife this weekend. Sandy was considerate of her apprehension and had her hooked by the end of the class. Small class size. Much better than the program I went through at an East Plano Gun Range

We offer Texas LTC classes, private training on pistol and shotgun, pistol classes, and active shooter training for individuals from the localities of Dallas, Plano, Carrollton, Richardson, Allen, Frisco, Anna, McKinney, Melissa, Trenton, Blue Ridge, Leonard, Bonham, and nearby communities, as well as providing specialized firearms training for the Palmer and Melissa school systems.

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

online at a discounted price. The online module takes about 4 hours to complete, and consists of several sections, 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

Private classes are available, for those whose handgun skills are weak.
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
These students generally do quite well on the LTC Proficiency. 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.

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.

There is a shorter version of the above for Church Security Team training.

TCOLE or LEOSA Proficiency

Yes, we will do those, on request, $25.00
