What to Bring to Classes:
What do I need to bring to class? - Everyone must bring a handgun that is in good working order in a minimum caliber of .32 caliber. All handguns are to remain secured in the student’s car until the shooting portion at the range where students will test on the shooting skills at 3 Yards, 9 Yards and 15 Yards. Handguns are not available to borrow for this class. Also each person needs to bring at least 50 rounds of ammo and we strongly recommend everyone bring 100 rounds in the event any part of the shooting proficiency must be repeated. Everyone must have hearing and eye protection.
- What should I wear? - The classroom will be an air conditioned room and a light jacket or sweater may be needed. Clothing should also be selected to protect exposed areas of your body from hot flying brass. And it is suggested that no open toe shoes be worn on the range.
What is included in Classes:
- We provide an instructor for the class and the required instructional materials. Shooting Proficiency will be done at the BASC Range. After leaving class everything will be ready to send after you are fingerprinted. (Photos are now used from the students Texas Driver’s License.)
- When do I take the shooting proficiency test? Immediately after the classroom session, the shooting section will be done at the BASC Range.
- What is not included? Everything provided except fingerprinting services and the money the State of Texas requires apply for your license.
- Where can I have my fingerprints done? When completing the application on the DPS website information will be given concerning fingerprinting.
What do I need to do after the completing the class?
- Your will need to have fingerprints done either before the class or after the class. After fingerprints are done the paperwork provided at the class will be sent to the Texas DPS along with the “Checklist” page with the bar code that you received online from the state when you made application, plus any other required documentation that the state has requested on the “checklist”.
- What is the cost to the state for LTC Licenses? Licenses are $140 (over 60 years old = $70) and veteran = $25).
- How long does it take to get your license back from the state? It depends on the volume at that particular time - supposed to be 4 to 6 weeks.
- How soon can I renew my LTC License prior to its expiration? The state will send a note about 6 months before the license is due to expire. After September 1st, 2013 a new law states that the renewal class is no longer required, just go to the DPS web site and renew your license and further instructions will be provided to you.
Misc. Licensing Questions:
- If I already took class but did not send in my paperwork, how long after the class can these documents be submitted? The certificate (LTC-100) that the instructor supplies upon successful completion of class is valid for one year after the class date. If documents are not submitted to the state within that 1 year period, the class must be repeated.
After you have your License:
- If I get stopped by the police for any reason and have my LTC handgun with me, how should I handle this situation? The Texas Department of Public Safety advises, when stopped by law enforcement show your driver’s license and the LTC. The law says, “carry your license when you carry your gun”. It’s best practice to always carry your license and show it if any form of identification is requested.
