Welcome to CHL-Texas

Getting your License to Carry Concealed or Open (LTC/CHL) is only the first step of a lifelong journey to become more independent, aware, secure and confident in your ability to defend yourself and your interests. Our LTC/CHL class isn’t about guns, it’s about people. It’s about creating a community of polite, respectful, and responsibly armed citizens that inherently brings out the best in all of us while keeping the criminal element at bay.
