Answers to questions we are asked.
Can I take the class if I don’t own a handgun?
Yes. We have several semi-automatic handguns available for loaners. You pay only for the ammunition (50 rounds). All are semi-automatic pistols and are firearm models often used for concealed carry.
Can I take the class if I don’t know how to shoot?
The LTC class is not designed to teach you how to shoot. It assumes you have a basic working knowledge of how to operate a handgun. If you have no experience at all with a handgun, then it is recommended that you first get some instruction on how to load fire and handle a handgun safely. See our Introduction to Handguns class.
What if I don’t pass the class?
Our classes are No-Fail classes. We work with you to insure you know all the material and can pass the 25-question exam. The only exception to this policy is if you create a safety hazard on the shooting range, you will be disqualified. If you simply pay attention and follow simple instructions, you will have no problem. If you need to repeat the range part of the class, we can accommodate you.
What should I bring to class?
You must bring a current photo ID, preferably a Texas driver's license. Pens, paper, etc are provided. Keep all firearms unloaded and cased until needed. You will not need a firearm for the classroom portion of the course.
What should I bring for the range?
Bring your handgun unloaded and in a case. Leave it in your locked car until range time. If you are being dropped off for the class (or riding a motorcycle), and are unable to secure your gun in the car, then bring it to one of the instructors, and it will be secured for you. The minimum caliber allowed for qualification is .32. For ammo, you will need fifty rounds minimum. If you have a magazine loader, bring it with you. If you don't have a loader, consider buying one. They save a lot of wear and tear on your fingers (and time at the range). They are inexpensive and well worth the money.
For attire, dress comfortably and for the weather. If inclement weather is predicted, bring some rain gear. Open-toe shoes, sandals, flip-flops, etc. are not permitted on the range. Bring eye and ear protection if you have it, otherwise it will be provided for you. It is strongly advised that you wear a shirt or blouse that buttons up high enough to prevent hot brass from going down the front. A brimmed hat, baseball cap or visor with a brim over the forehead is advised.
May I reschedule a class?
Yes. We understand extemporaneous circumstances happen. If you need to reschedule, just call or email us, and we will move you to an unfilled class of your choosing, at no additional cost to you. Please try to give us at least 48-hours advance notice.
