New legislation for Texas CHL

Texas CHL Web Site

The State of Texas passed laws that allow us to carry concealed handguns for self-protection. Obtaining a permit to carry concealed in the State of Texas requires a 6 hour Concealed Handgun License Certification Course which is outlined by the State Department of Public Safety and covers the use of force, gun safety, gun storage, dispute resolution and Texas laws regarding use of force as a defense and licensing requirements. It also requires a shooting test with a required minimum score to prove your shooting proficiency.

Obtaining a permit to carry concealed in the State of Texas requires completion of the course, qualifying with a handgun at the range, and passing a 50 question test. The applicant then applies and pays a fee to the State which completes a background check and completes the issuance of the license.

It is no longer required to re-certify with the State of Texas, but we encourage those that carry a concealed handgun practice your shooting periodically.

CHL costs are as follows:

 - $135.00 for a new CHL license

- $125.00 for Seniors (60 or older), Veterans (need a copy of DD214) or Active Military (show ID)
