The concealed-handgun-license class qualifies students to apply for a Texas concealed-handgun license, which has reciprocity with 30 states. Held at the range at Corpus Christi Pistol and Rifle Club, and one of the few single-location classes in the area, the course is led by an NRA-certified instructor who begins with classroom work focusing on both state and federal concealment laws. The instructor blends both lecture and video presentations. Then, live-fire training at the onsite range drills participants in marksmanship fundamentals. The course concludes with a 25-question test and a 50-round shooting-qualification test. Upon passing these, each student receives a certificate of completion, a necessary document to apply for a CHL.
Tuition includes state-required forms and range fees. It does not include any additional costs associated with applying for a CHL, such as passport photos (no fee for Texas residents), fingerprinting, or the Texas Department of Safety’s processing fees. Students may also bring their own handgun—.32 or larger caliber—or rent one onsite. They also need 50 rounds of brass-casing ammunition, as well as eye and ear protection, the latter of which can also be purchased at the range.
Spartan Defense operates out of Corpus Christi Pistol and Rifle Club, which has an outdoor pistol range and indoor climate controlled classroom on site.
The staff rents semi-automatic handguns.

In addition to firearms training, instructors also teach unarmed self-defense, drawing upon multiple traditions such as aikido and Japanese jujitsu.
