Texas License To Carry

A LTC applicant must complete classroom training per DPS standards, pass a written examination and pass a proficiency demonstration (shooting).

NRA Basic Pistol

Teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and operating different pistols safely. Class is 8 hours, size is 6-10 individuals. This is an NRA Class that you will sign up for through the NRA site. Note, this class is being revamped and will be a blended online/classroom/range class.

GFT Introduction to Handguns

This is a short-form class I developed to replace the NRA FIRST Class. Three hours classroom plus range time introducing the student to firearms. You should have your own firearm but a very limited number without one can be accomadated.


These three classes can be done as a private class for one or two individuals or can be done at your site. Arrangements for range time may have to made at a range near your locale.
