The Shortcut: Beginner to Licensed-to-Carry

The goal: you have any of several reasons to be licensed to carry a personal firearm.
The problem: you have never shot a handgun.

The solution: follow this shortcut path.

  1. Verify your eligibility for a handgun license.

  2. Take our "Learn to Shoot" class. These are held twice a month at a private range. Classes are generally 1-7 people. You can pay a fee into the ammo pool and shoot 3-4 guns of different sizes and calibers, or bring your own gun and ammo. These classes are usually scheduled about a week before an LTC class.

  3. During the next week, go to a commercial firing range on your own, once or twice. The "Learn to Shoot" class will get you at least 90% of the way to passing the LTC Proficiency, so practice what you learned a little more.

  4. Sign up for an LTC class. While I do hold a strict training standard, no one under my instruction has ever failed to get the license. That's over 1200 people.

  5. Either right before or right after the class, start your application at DPS and schedule finger printing at the same time.
  6. Done.
