Made the decision to get my License to Carry handgun. That was the easy part. Figuring out the best place to get the class was a little harder. Seems like everyone and their dog does firearms training. I talked to my friends, read a lot of reviews, and talked to several different instructors, and made my decision to go with Sandy at McKinney Firearms Training. The training itself was very good, almost self explanatory, and Sandy offers enough additional information through personal experience to make the course interesting. I've talked to some of my friends who said their instructor basically read off a number of slides, making for a very boring 4 hours, so much so it was hard to stay awake. I had a fair bit of experience with handguns, but it was many years ago. Sandy talked me through it, then worked with me on the range to correct some things so I easily qualified. Sandy was great to work with, and easy to communicate with. He answered my many emails typically within an hour or so. It was also nice to have a classroom and range at the same location out in the country north of McKinney. If you're looking for firearms training for a little brush-up, a first time shooter, or to get your License to Carry, I highly recommend McKinney Firearms Training.

For people who have not yet learned to shoot, we offer this:
"Learn to Shoot". Done entirely at a private range E of Plano, we spend about an hour on the firing line
learning safety and fundamentals, and an hour in supervised shooting. This is suitable for beginners and near-beginners.
These students generally do quite well on the LTC Proficiency, if that is their interest.
- 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
Texas 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
In addition to the online class above, you will also come to the range for an hour for the Handgun Proficiency Test. People
I teach to shoot never have a problem with it.
- 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
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.
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.
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 certified by Texas DPS to teach this certification course.
There is a shorter version of the above for Church Security Team training.
