Texas License To Carry

To get your Texas license to carry (also known as an LTC), you must first take the class required by State law. A Texas license to carry is required to carry concealed or open in Texas. It will also allow you to carry in 37 States total so it’s great to have while traveling too.

Texas is a “shall issue” State meaning that they will issue a Texas license to carry to everyone who passes the class and does not have a prohibiting criminal record. obviously if you are prohibited from owning a firearm you can not get a license to carry one.

LTC Classroom Portion

The classroom portion of the Texas license to carry class is easy. State law requires the class to be four to six hours long (not including the range portion). In the class you will learn all the carry laws in Texas and take a written test. It is super easy and on a basic level. No one has ever failed our class.

LTC Shooting Portion

The shooting portion is also on a basic level. If you can safely load, handle and operate a handgun you will do great.
