$75 for a Texas Concealed Handgun Class ($150 Value)
The Texas Concealed Handgun class covers the state’s requirement of at least 10 hours of training in two to three days before clients may apply for a concealed-handgun license. Although it depends on the schedule, each day includes approximately four hours of instruction dedicated to firearm fundamentals such as safe handling, storage, eligibility requirements, non-violent dispute resolution, and use of force, as well as state laws and the responsibilities that go with owning a concealed weapon. Instructors also teach the basics of firing a handgun, spending the remainder of each day supervising an optional live-fire training—range fees are not included with today’s deal.
Tuition includes passport photographs, notary service, and all necessary training materials; informational packets may be downloaded directly from the Texas DPS website or picked up at class. Students must pass the written exam and shooting-proficiency test with a score of at least 70% to become eligible for a state concealed-handgun license. The class does not include the license itself, nor any fees associated with applying for the license, such as the cost of fingerprinting. Classes typically take place over the course of a weekend or three weekdays.
Live-fire training takes place at an outdoor range.
