Texas has changed the minimum age for an LTC to 18
A federal district court has ruled that Texas DPS can no longer prohibit adults age 18-20 from obtaining a Texas License To Carry. Effective January 10, 2023 elligible applicants age 18 and older can obtain a License To Carry a handgun on or about their person… concealed or openly.
Can an 18 year old own a handgun? Answer… YES. State law allows for an 18 year old Texas resident to receive a handgun as a gift. They are also allowed to purchase a handgun through a private party sale. An individual must be 21 to purchase a handgun from a Federally Licensed dealer.
Our traditional Texas License To Carry class is required by the State of Texas in order to get a Texas LTC. Licensees have the right to carry both concealed and openly in Texas and it allows for licensed carry in 36 other states. The classroom and range portion are completed in the same day, usually lasting only 5-6 hours. We take a “logic before lethal” approach to this training and the class offers a lot of back-and-forth discussion. Carrying with a license in the State of Texas offers numerous benefits over “Constitutional Carry”. We offer a $10 discount for Veterans, First Responders, School Teachers, and those age 60+.
The Online Texas License To Carry class has all the same benefits as the traditional LTC class, except the classroom portion is completely online. It can be taken from anywhere and can be started and stopped, as-necessary. After the online course, the State requires a 1-hour in-person range session, where the instructor will conduct a range safety brief and the live-fire requirement (additional fee).
