NEW UPDATE:  The 83rd Texas Legislature passed new C.H.L. Legislation, mostly effective September 1, 2013.  Click here to see the new legislation (opens to a new page).

PRE-REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT IS REQUIRED BECAUSE OF LIMITED SEATING (CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS ARE NOW ACCEPTED).  We also offer consultation and application administrative services.  We also have Rental Handguns and Ammunition for an additional fee.

In order to cut costs, the training center is only open during a training class!!!  We operate daily out of our home office.  Classes are usually held on the second calendar Saturday of each month.  As per the new Texas Laws, effective September 1, 2013, New Applicants obtaining the license for the first time are required a classroom training of 4-6 hours, afterwards passing a written exam, and passing a proficiency exam.  This training may be done all in one day.  Classroom part of the training and written exam is done at the training center and the handgun training and proficiency exam is done at Brazoria County Gun Range, LLC.  Upon passing all required testing, we issue the Certificate of Training form (CHL-100) required for the C.H.L. Application Process.

C.H.L. Renewals:  As of September 1, 2013, the State of Texas no longer requires C.H.L. Renewals to take a training class or pass a proficiency exam with their handgun.  However, renewals are held responsible to know the law and are welcome to take the training class and shoot their handgun as a refresher.  We offer assistance through the online renewal application process if needed.
