Even if Texas becomes open carry, there are still a lot of benefits to actually having an LTC which is why I signed up. It’s also just something i’ve always wanted. The training was extremely high quality and the process simple. Highly recommend.

This is the best way to get your LTC. Period. My husband got his a few years back, so I decided to get mine before the election. I enrolled in the training which was simple and straightforward. After I got my LTC-101 I went to my local range for the range exam and I now have my LTC.

Why Should I Still Get A License To Carry?

Anyone wanting to carry in Texas should get a Texas license to carry so you are not bound by the restrictions and limitations that come with carrying without a license. You are always better off and have more protections when you have a Texas license to carry.

Texas Government Code Chapter 411, Subchapter H sets out the eligibility criteria that must be met. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age (unless active duty military) and must meet Federal qualifications to purchase a handgun. A number of factors may make individuals ineligible to obtain a license, such as: felony convictions, some misdemeanor convictions, including charges that resulted in probation or deferred adjudication; certain pending criminal charges; chemical or alcohol dependency; certain types of psychological diagnoses, and protective or restraining orders. The state eligibility requirements can be found in GC §411.172. The federal firearms disqualifiers can be found in 18 USC 44 §922.

There is no time limit to complete the course. However, in order to meet all of the state requirements, the training can take no less than 4-hours.

The DPS should issue your license within 60 days of receiving the completed application packet. 

No. Per Texas Government Code §411.173, legal residents of another state or persons who relocate to Texas with the intent to establish residency may obtain an LTC. Those individuals must submit an application, pay the required fees, successfully complete the required training in Texas and submit all supporting documents. They also must submit form LTC-6, two passport-style photos and a copy of their out of state driver license or state-issued identification card. Note, however, that all LTC applicants must be legal residents of Texas or another state.

Initial license is valid for four years. Renewal license is good for 5 years.

Based on our most recent research, the USCCA has identified just two states with statutes against carrying a concealed firearm while wearing a mask: California and Illinois. Although we have not conducted an exhaustive search we recommend that you reach out to your local law enforcement office or district attorney.
