A low student to instructor ratio insures your opportunity to maximize understanding of all the legal aspects of carry in Texas.
Introduction to handguns. If you have basic skills but need improvements in safety protocols and techniques for safely shooting a firearm.
Never held a handgun? Here is where you take your first steps to learn. I specialize in introducing and training new students to safely shoot and manage a firearm.
Caring for your firearm. Have you never cleaned your firearm? Proper cleaning extends the life of your firearm and insures its proper performance if needed.
Check to see if you’re eligible before spending your money on the application to the state (which is NOT refundable if you don’t qualify!). State law is specific and thorough. This is step one to start the process of achieving your goal!
The fastest and easiest way to submit your CHL application is online at the Texas DPS website. You can print out and submit a hard copy of your application, but this will only delay the process. ACT now to get the ball rolling.
Electronic fingerprinting is required. Make an appointment to have it taken and submitted to the DPS — even if you’ve recently been fingerprinted for something else. This step might be the least favorite one but it is required.
CHL classes are available in several settings. Large groups, private/small groups, or one-on-one instruction. Whatever is needed, Austin Concealed Training classes are offered in several formats to satisfy your personal requirements.
After successful completion of the written test and range proficiency, you will receive two originally, signed copies of the State required CHL100 form - one for your personal file and one to forward to the State. We recommend that you keep the second original of this form and copies of all other documents submitted to the state until the successful completion of your CHL application process. Remember - we guarantee that you will pass the class or we will refund your training fees.
