The San Antonio Firearms Training LTC (License To Carry) / CHL & Basic Pistol Course Combo is an economical way to take both our 4 hour Basic Handgun Course and our Texas CHL/LTC Courses.
This package was created due to our observation in our CHL class that easily over 80% of our CHL/LTC students really needed to attend the Basic Handgun Class at least as much as (or in the majority of cases more than) they needed to take the CHL/LTC class.
This is the ideal way for the vast majority of people to take the LTC / CHL course. By taking the Basic Pistol Course first the student will learn to shoot the handgun to a level of proficiency that ensures that they will pass the CHL course and be well on the road to a level of proficiency that will allow them to defend themselves or their loved ones in an emergency.
In fact, since all of our instructors are CHL instructors, we finish the basic handgun course by running the CHL qualification course. Upon passing that course you will receive a certificate for completing the proficiency portion of the CHL course. This means that you come into the CHL Course having already completed the proficiency requirement and will not have to shoot that day if you do not want to shoot the course of fire again. For many students this takes the highest anxiety portion of the CHL class out of the equation and makes the day far more enjoyable (and a couple of hours shorter).
The two courses must be taken on separate days.
We feel that our private range and classroom provide the best venue in the area for teaching in an ideal learning environment. 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 provides an ideal relaxed atmosphere for new shooters and experienced shooters alike. For more info and directions to our range click the following link:
Please do not hesitate to call with ANY questions. We know that learning to shoot can be intimidating and we want you to be as comfortable as possible.

What an enjoyable way to spend a Saturday. This 60+ lady is not new to hunting (long guns), but new to handguns. I was comfortable with all aspects of these classes, all questions answered and discussed. Real life situations were reviewed with clear, functional solutions for each scenario. I would take any class this group offered, it is that professional and knowledgeable an organization.

Chris did an outstanding job as our instructor. He kept the class attention and new all the rules and regulations. I am now waiting to take the basic handgun training which time did not allow all the same day. My wife and I are waiting for his next basic training.

if you are a beginner like my wife and I then this class is just what you need. The instructors are GREAT, wonderful. The only thing is i wish it was longer because we learned so much and i'm sure there was so much more they could have shown us. I just have nothing bad to say about these folks Great Class. Would recommend this class to anyone.

I am a Marine Vet and a former state police officer from another state. I too the LTC class for a permit to carry in Texas and I have to say that Chris and Julie are professional, trustworthy and offer a good dose of humor during their classes. They made me feel relaxed and at home like I was qualifying with my old buddies. I do have to say that Chris seems to know a lot more about firearms and techniques than most of my former firearms instructors on the police force. The only disappointing thing....Eric shaved his beard. I was looking forward to a fellow bearded brother but I guess I must walk that path alone.

The instructors are friendly, safety conscious, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. That made me feel at ease and comfortable in asking questions.
The training was comprehensive and delivered in a way that created a favorable learning environment. A CHL requires understanding the complex laws and safety issues involved. The manner of the training presentation gave me the confidence that I could apply the training in “real” world situations. That enabled me to pass my exam!
I would definitely recommend San Antonio Firearms Training to anyone.

My husband and I both took the classes. The classes were both informative and entertaining. The instructor, Chris, is very knowledgeable and personable and makes a class that could potentially be boring and full of facts to remember into an interactive and fun experience. Both he and his wife Julie are professional and run a great class. I would definitely recommend taking the combo class if you haven't fired a weapon before or if has been some time since your last experience. Great way to spend the weekend!

Both Chris and Julie made the class very enjoyable!! Their knowledge is fantastic and they happily share what they know to make you a better shooter AND make it so it is plain English and easily understandable. Looking forward to taking more classes with them.

I would like to thank the team for the outstanding class. You all made my family, and I very comfortable, and the information passed on was very useful. I will for sure recommend your class to everyone I know.
Thank you and take care.
