Texas License to Carry

Texas License to Carry (LTC) Courses

Successful completion of a LTC course is required  to receive a Concealed Handgun License in the TxDPS - Concealed Handgun Program.  This is a 6  hour course that prepares you to safely handle a handgun, assures you understand Texas laws concerning concealed carry, and documents you are proficient in firing a handgun. 

Massey's course is taught by certified NRA instructors who provide the training and guidance for the state application process.  Courses are tailored to the experience, comfort level and needs of the participants and held on the firing range.  

Date:  Last Saturday OR the First Sunday of every month beginning at 2 pm.  One day course.

Time:  2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Please make arrangements for extra time in the event the course runs longer.

Where:  Massey's Gun Shop & Range, 1 Massey Way, Brownsville, Texas.

Cost for the Course:  $100 new license. Cost of the course includes:  course packet,  targets, paperwork, and notary service.  No renewal class required if your CHL is close to expiring or less than a year.  See below.

Texas Law has changed for Renewals.

You will need to bring 50 rounds of ammo or purchase from the shop.  If you do not have a handgun, you can rent one from the shop. 

Expired license for more than a year:  If your CHL has expired for more than a year you need to take the course again.  Full price because the State requires you retake everything.

Expired license close to expiration date or less than a year:  If your license has expired for less than a year, or near expiring go to this webpage to renew.   https://txapps.texas.gov/txapp/txdps/chl/.  Also, if your license is expired, stop carrying until you get your new license.   You do not have to take a renewal course. Use your savings to purchase a year's membership at the range!

Information to review for classTexas Handgun Laws   Keep this handy so you know the law.

Handgun:  You must qualify with a 32 or higher caliber handgun.  If you do not have one, we have rentals.  This is a good time to learn what type of firearm you want.

If you do not have a handgun you can rent from us.

Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather:jeans or other long pants, shirts and blouses like a t-shirt or polo .  Wear low heeled shoes that cover your feet.   No sandals, heels or flip flops. 


  1. Is the CHL class on for today at 2pm? The weather looks a bit sketchy.

  2. Best place to go shot your guns.......

  3. So your next class is this Saturday Feb 7 from 2 to 8 pm??

  4. Will you have classes on the 26 of Dec.?

  5. Are you still teaching???? We used to go to your firing range infrequently to practice shot and to zero scopes, but the range was bulldozed down?

  6. I/m sorry I was thinking about the range in Los Fresno's, so your range is still open? Classes still on weekends as described?

  7. Thanks for updating my information. Different regions have different laws regarding guns and so its difficult to keep yourself update and follow as they were implemented or updated.
