TEXAS LTC - $69, including range fee



What is the full cost of a Handgun License?
Look at "Licensing Process" in the right column. It's all spelled out. LTC classes are all multi-media and in AIR CONDITIONED COMFORT!

The LTC classroom session covers all required knowledge in understandable terms. The classes are only $69 weekend/weekday, and are always in a comfortable meeting room  in Northwest Houston. Class start times vary. Check the calendar.

First, go to "CALENDAR" tab to pick a HL class date, then to "REGISTRATION AND DEPOSIT" tab, and follow the instructions.

If you have any questions or suggestions,
...OR CALL ME at 281-734-8902.
You will need 50 rounds of ammo for qualifying. I do have ammo for sale. I will provide a firearm if you need one (limited availability, $10 per session). Qualifying will be easy. 20 rounds at nine feet, 20 rounds at 21 feet and ten rounds at 45 feet. 175 points out of a possible 250 qualifies you.

Take a lesson, watch a match, get involved. You will be glad you did!
New Shooter and Safety Courses!
We offer a Basics Course for anyone who has never used a firearm, is not comfortable with one, or just wants to get better. It starts from the basics and really is a lot of fun and good information. These are private lessons about two hours in length. Instructor's fee is $125.00. To request a date convenient for you... Email your request or call me at 281-734-8902, and leave a message.

Understand that you may take the class either before or after completing the online application. The only restriction is that once you initiate the process, you must complete it within one year.

1. Sign up for a class date and make a class deposit.

2. Go to the Texas Department of Public Safety (TXDPS) web site. Go to HANDGUN LICENSING and follow the links to “new applicant”. You can click HERE.

3. Complete the forms and pay your state licensing fee. Remember there are several discounts available for veterans and senior citizens, as well as law enforcement. If you don't have an exemption, the state fee is $40 for the license.

4. Print the receipt they e-mail you for your records. Don't miss this step. If you were born out of the country, click HERE to see what documents TXDPS accepts.

5. Schedule a fingerprinting appointment. The same link above has a link to the fingerprinting site.
      i. Call the number provided from the site or go on-line and set an appointment with the state contractor. This is $10.
     ii. Do NOT have any photos taken. DPS now uses your driver's license photo.

6. At the successful conclusion of class, you will receive an LTC-100 form needed for the TXDPS. This can be sent via e-mail or regular mail. The directions to do this are on the receipt the TXDPS sends you.

Total outlay is class, state fee, and fingerprinting. Without exemptions, it's $109 ($69class, $40 state fee, and $10 fingerprinting).
