our Mission statement:

Our Mission is to equip those that seek to own a gun for personal protection the knowledge they need to do so safely and effectively. We strive to provide a personalized training regimen for each of our clients to ensure proper techniques are followed to promote proper muscle memory. I am sure you have all heard that old adage: practice makes perfect? Well, that is just not true. Practice makes permanent. If you practice wrong, your practice will fail you in a time that you and your family need it the most. Our desire is that you and I will never have to use our guns to defend ourselves or our loved ones but want to make sure we can do so if the need ever arises.

Texas License to Carry Course:

This course provides the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) required classroom training and firearm qualification students need in order to obtain a Texas License to Carry a Handgun (LTC). Basic proficiency with a handgun is a prerequisite for this course. This course is not intended to train students on how to shoot a handgun. The qualification test portion of the course is required by the State of Texas in order to demonstrate your ability to safely and properly handle and shoot a handgun.

Online Course

Texas License to Carry Prep Course:

This Prep Course does include the Texas LTC Course. It is designed to prepare you for the proficiency portion of the Texas LTC Course.
