Texas License to Carry Course (LTC)
Wright Arms, LLC, is pleased to announce the hosting of the Texas License to Carry Course. This course is designed and intended for those who know how to shoot a handgun and wish to obtain their Texas License to Carry (LTC) a handgun. With a Texas LTC, you can legally carry your concealed or open-carry firearm throughout the state, except where prohibited by law.
The cost of the course is $90.00, which includes the range fee and a 10% discount on in-stock ammunition. The licensing fees are separate and must be remitted by the participant.
We use the range at South Texas Tactical in Brownsville, located at 2100 Village Center Boulevard, Brownsville, TX 78526.
Before registering for the course, we suggest that you complete the background check per Texas DPS. We also recommend that you practice the course of fire and be familiar with the weapon that you will use for the course. Please note that no optical enhancers can be used by the student during the proficiency demonstration, which means no lasers, holographic sights, scopes, etc. For successful completion of the course, an applicant must be able to demonstrate, at a minimum, the degree of proficiency that is required to effectively operate a handgun of .32 caliber or above.
