The San Antonio Firearms Taining CHL Class now know as an LTC (License To Carry) Class consists of classroom instruction lasting approximately 6 hours. The class covers all training criteria to obtain a Concealed Handgun License from the State of Texas. The classroom session is mandated by state law to be a minimum 4-6 hours. Class usually begins at 9:00 a.m. in the classroom located on the range, but specific times for the classes are listed on the class date option menu. We have found that our classroom time length is the proper span in order to adequately cover the necessary topics. Immediately following the classroom portion we perform the Shooting Proficiency Test.
We feel that our private range and classroom provide the best venue in the area for teaching in an ideal learning envornment. The fact that the range is private means that when our class is shooting, we are the only ones shooting. When we are teaching we can sit at the picnic tables in the shade and discuss the specific techniques or topics without worrying about the sound of gunfire from other shooters. This provise an ideal relaxed atmosphere for new shooters and experienced shooters alike. For more info and directions to our range click the folllowing link:

I am a new (very) shooter & I didn't know what to expect when taking this class. Chris, his wife, & his staff were very friendly and made my wife & I feel very comfortable. We had a class of about 30 & they always took their time to help every in both the lecture part of the class & the demonstration (shooting). Chris made the class fun & he keep our attention the entire time. His knowledge is outstanding! I learned so much about the laws for LTC (license to Carry) & the practical use of owning a gun. I felt that I left more confident because I had more knowledge. I recommend this class to anyone plus I plan on taking some of his other gun classes to get better.

Instructor was very knowledgable, the class was very laid back but still presented all the course material and then some. The instructor and his wife have a great dynamic and keep the class funny and interesting. I would highly recommend taking your LTC class here.

I previously had my CHL from another state, so this was a great refresher and great coverage of TX law. My wife is a beginner and learned alot from this class. Instructor was terrific and really down to earth. Very low stress class where you learn more than you realize.

This class was much more than expected. I can't recommend this enough. The flow of instruction was great and the range time was perfect.

My wife and I took the CHL class and neither of us had done any preparation. Neither of us had fired a weapon in a few years or bothered to study any of the Texas laws regulating firearms. By the time the class was finished, we both were able to pass the written test easily, and qualify with our weapons with no problem. The instructors are knowledgeable and very friendly. Our class was fairly large, between 80 to 100 people, but from our perspective, the instructors were able to address the needs of all the students efficiently and effectively. I encourage anyone who attends to bring food and drink.

I took the class even though I do not plan to carry right now, but the class was both interesting and had the right amount of humor. I thought I knew a lot already, but was surprised at how much I learned. They even taught me how to keep from shooting myself in the foot.
I would recommend this class to anyone, except for the bad guys.

The class covered all the necessary details for State requirement with a good emphasis on personal responsibility and consequences of poor judgement. I would reccomend San Antonio firearms training to every one
eligible and desireing to obtain a license to carry a handgun.

We were told we were the longest time-wise class they have taught. There were 55 people, and to make matters worse, there was a conflict with the available time for the shooting range. The landlord double booked, so to be fair, this wasn't their fault. Because the class was large, there were three groups for shooting qualification. I was a member of the last group, and we only had about 20 minutes to qualify. It's rough when the best part is cut short. That's the reason for the four star rating. The class was kept interesting with extra videos and examples of what could go wrong. One problem with the class, again, not their fault, is that some of the participants needed to enroll in the basic handgun class before taking the CHL/LTC class. To prospective students: "Learn your firearm and how to shoot before taking the CHL class. You can do this without a CHL."
