 “Freedom isn’t free!  Someone had to pay for it!”

The State of Texas has adopted legislation that allows its law abiding citizens to carry concealed handguns for self protection. Obtaining a Concealed Handgun License for the State of Texas requires successful completion of a minimum 10 hour certification course which is outlined by the Texas Department of Public Safety and covers topics on the use of force, gun safety, gun storage, conflict resolution and Texas laws pertaining to use of force as a defense, licensing requirements and laws regulating concealed handgun license holders.
To obtain a Concealed Handgun License in the State of Texas you must complete the 10 hour course, qualify with a handgun at a DPS certified range, and pass a 50 question exam. A student must then apply to the state and pay the current fees and undergo a complete background check for the state to issue a license.
Students may complete their State of Texas Online Application Package and then attend the class. This completed packet along with the required proficiency certificate issued by the instructor can then be returned to the DPS to complete the application process.
