Texas LTC Class

Texas Law currently mandates that the course be 4-6 hrs in length not including the range qualification. Our classroom portion generally lasts 4-1/2 hours. In addition to all Texas LTC mandatory topics, we provide an (always extremely well-received) overview of situational awareness and crime avoidance. We use a combination of lecture, class participation, and video material.

Unlike a lot of Texas LTC classes, our class is not an ego trip for the instructor. We do not bore you with “I was there” stories or waste your time. We provide you a framework of understanding so that you may make an informed, split-second decision concerning the use of force or deadly force within the constraints of Texas LTC laws.

Final Exam: Before taking the final exam, we will go over covered materials and answer any questions that students may have. Students must achieve a proficiency level of 70% on the written exam in order to pass the course. We have never had a student leave the class having failed the written test--we will work with you and go over the material until you have a sufficient understanding to pass the written test.

Range Qualification: A total of 50 rounds are fired during the course of the qualification test. A score of 70%, or 175 points of a possible 250, is required to pass. The target used is a TX-PT (a Standard B-27) target which is a human-shaped silhouette target measuring 45 by 24 inches. Please see the picture above for the scoring of the Texas LTC Qualification Course. All shooting is from the ready position, which means the gun is already in your hands and aimed at the target--the Texas LTC Qualification does not require drawing from the holster.

We have had only one student (by the student’s choice) leave the range without qualifying. The Texas LTC class is not designed to teach you to shoot; however, if you fail the shooting qualification we will provide a very limited overview of basic shooting positions and allow ONE re-shoot free of charge. Students must provide or purchase any ammunition required for the re-shoot.
