LTC GALVESTON was created to provide a means for the residents of Galveston Island to have access to quality handgun license training on the island.   Although an extensive background in handling handguns is not required to enroll in a License to Carry class, a familiarity with the type of revolver or pistol you plan to carry is strongly encouraged.   LTC GALVESTON  will soon be offering basic handgun classes in addition to its License to Carry classes.  Also, the National Rifle Association (NRA) offers an excellent basic handgun class online.  For more information on the NRA's online basic handgun class, click here

The cost of the License to Carry class will be $85.00 per person.  This will include a classroom presentation of approximately 4 1/2 hours, a demonstration of range proficiency, a  participant handbook prepared by the Texas Concealed Handgun Association  ($12.00 value), and a  standard B-27 cardboard target.  Participants may utilize their own eye and ear protection or use equipment provided by LTC GALVESTON.  If a participant does not own a handgun, LTC GALVESTON has both .38/.357 caliber revolvers and  9mm semi-automatic pistols available for use at no charge.  The participant will be required only to provide ammunition (name-brand only, no reloads) which can be obtained from local retailers.  If demonstrating proficiency with a semi-auto pistol, wearing a shirt with a button-up collar is recommended to avoid ejected shell casings.

The classes will be held in Galveston in the private meeting/dining room at Kitty's Seaside CafĂ© located in the Victorian Condo Hotel Resort at 6300 Seawall Blvd. in Galveston.  Typically, classes will begin at 8:30AM and participants should have the course completed, including range qualification, by no later than 4:30PM.  To accommodate participants who work evenings or nights, our plans include offering evening classes for the classroom portion of the class and the range qualification will be held the following day.  Also, individualized instruction will be available as well as couples' classes.  Private groups can schedule classes with six or more participants.  These classes will be scheduled outside of our posted public class schedule.
