Information in regard to getting or renewing a Texas CHL

Frequently Asked Questions:

What do I need to bring with me?

On the day of the class, you only need to bring your gun, 50 rounds of ammunition, and your class fee ($100.00 for new CHL, $75.00 for renewals).

What if I don't own a gun yet?

If you don't yet own a handgun, we have more than 60 rentals available to you at the time of your qualification. The cost to rent a handgun to qualify is $15.00 plus the cost of ammunition.

What kind of gun do I need to shoot to qualify?

The state requires that the shooter must qualify with a caliber of .32 ACP or larger.

If you qualify with a semi-automatic (magazine-fed) handgun, then you will be licensed to carry BOTH a semi-automatic handgun and a revolver.

If you qualify with a revolver, then you will be licensed to carry ONLY a revolver.
