Hot Wells Shooting Range has a class that’s especially for the ladies who would like to obtain their Concealed Handgun License. It is the same format as the co-ed course that is required to obtain your Texas License to Carry (LTC) Concealed Handgun License but, it is ONLY for the ladies. The class includes 4 hours of class room instruction, a 25 question written test, and a 50 round shooting qualification.
See the LTC calendar to register for an upcoming class.
Price: Non-Military- $75 Active Military- $25
Class time does not include range qualification; this usually adds an additional 30 minutes to an hour depending on class size. Feel free to schedule your shooting qualification on a private basis by enrolling in a private lesson.
LTC Shooting Proficiency Test:
- 50 rounds shot from 3 different distances at a B-27 silhouette target.
- 20 rounds fires at 9 ft
- 20 rounds fired at 21 ft
- 10 rounds fires at 45 ft
The four hours of classroom instruction will cover everything you need to know to pass the written test. The written test has 25 questions.
The course includes very little instruction on weapons operation. Students looking for more training on proper weapon handling techniques are advised to enroll in a private lesson.
