To Begin Your Training Start With CHL-Plus
"Training is a Process, not an Event"
The 2013 Statutes require that the course should be no less than 4 hours of class time on the laws plus 1 hour firearm safety and proficiency training for the student to pass the course. We will start off with firearms training and marksmanship to be sure that everyone is familiar with handling there particular firearm when we go to the range we will go over them before hand. Under the 2011 DPS Qualification Course "any malfunctions that are encountered, the shooter will work through the problem and finish the course of fire in the allotted time." At 2:30 we will go to the "Shooting Gallery Range" for certification at an indoor airconditioned and climate controlled environment. We then return to the classroom and complete the 4 hour course. It is your responsible that you have received the required training and you must submit an affidavit to that effect you must download and read CHL-16. As of March 1, 2011 Applicants must apply on line or download the application and forms and all fingerprinting must be digitally scanned by L1 at www.l1id.com or call(888)467-2080 for an appointment. When you do your application on line sign up for L-1 at that time or you won't get another chance for 2 days and print a copy. Hyperlinks are at the bottom of this webpage for your use.

There is a tremendous amount of responsibility that goes along with carrying a firearm in public and far more training is necessary than can be given in a 4-6 hour course. This is a start that is adequate to get your license and will guide you in continuing your training process formally or informally.
This is an important decision that you are making and should not be taken lightly. The majority of the course is teaching you how to keep from using your handgun and guide you in saving yourself thousands of dollars in legal fees and still protecting your life and preserve the lives of other persons. Get the most you can from your CHL course, after all, you are paying for it! It is information you may need some day. The last thing you want is having to use your firearm and then hear the other person's attorney in the court room refer to your "OUT OF STATE DISCOUNT CHL". Do it right, get the training, get the real deal a Texas CHL with all the training.

Can't find the answer to a CHL question email me and I will try to find the answer for you.
Q. Can I get an out of state nonresident license and carry in Texas? F.D.
A. Save your money this is a loop hole that could end up costing you a lot of more. Most states are closing the loop hole by requiring that you must hold your home state license before they will issue their nonresident license. The state ID card presented to the Pease officer demanding identification must be issued by the same state that issued the CHL. (Texas DL would not work with Utah nonresident CHL)
Q. If I get my CHL and I have 1 beer on the way home I can be considered intoxicated without a CHL .008? J.H.
A. It is not the CHL that makes you eligible to be considered intoxicated it is the accessibility of the firearm after having consumed alcohol.
If you are going to be drinking it is best to leave the gun at home or lock it up in a safe in the trunk.
Q. Can I qualify with my 5.7? R.B.
A. No, the 5.7 is a more powerful handgun than required but the state goes by a minimum caliber of .32 inches, 5.7mm is .22 caliber,32 is 8 mm.
