Concealed Handgun License - Initial (One Day) Class

Effective September 1, 2013, the Texas Concealed Handgun License Class is a Four Hour Class, not including RANGE TIME. Our class will be approximately Five hours with range time.

The Academy at DFW Gun offers 2 convenient ways to complete the training requirements to receive a license to carry a concealed handgun from the Texas Department of Public Safety. We offer this one day class, and an evening class on Thursday nights. Upon successful completion of the class and submission of the application materials, the state will issue you a license as soon as 60 days, assuming there is no legal disqualification. Our CHL class package includes the following:

  • Training by a DPS certified instructor
  • Qualify in house on our DPS approved range (indoor, safe, clean, and climate controlled)
  • Application Preparation Assistance
  • Handgun (if none available by student) for use during range qualification
  • Safety glasses, and hearing protection for use during range qualification

Note: In accordance with the State of Texas as of March 1, 2011, all fingerprints must now be done electronically through an L1 finger printing location. We will also be referring students to L1 for their passport photos.
