Through 10 total hours of training, instructors qualify students to apply for a Texas concealed-handgun license, which has reciprocity with 30 states. A blend of classroom and range work covers legal definitions, the mechanics of sound marksmanship, and proper storage. After students pass a written test and shooting-proficiency exam, they qualify to apply for a concealed-handgun license. The class can be scheduled any day of the week as either a one- or two-day course. A continental breakfast of donuts, muffins, coffee, and juice is included.
Students may bring their own handgun, or one can be provided. Range fees vary between $15 and $25, and ammo costs between $10 and $15. Tuition does not include further costs associated with applying for a concealed-handgun license, such as $9.95 for electronic fingerprints or the state's $140 application fee. The class assumes some experience handling a firearm; those with no or very little experience would be best suited by taking the concealed-handgun-license prep course first for an additional $25.
Proudly part of a veteran-owned business, the state-certified instructors at S-TACT improve clients' firearm proficiency through its concealed-handgun-licensing class, three-part basic handgun class, and custom training sessions. These courses teach basic through advanced skills, such as steadying recoil, drawing from the holster, and clearing a jam by yelling until it cooperates. Each class is limited to 10 students, though they're happy to lead classes even if only one student signs up.
