Safety guidelines

Here are our basic safe gun handling guidelines. We will provide VERY COMPLETE AND DETAILED safety information as part of any training. By registering for our training, all students agree to follow all safety rules and instructions without exception.

  1. Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction. Never point a gun at anything you are not willing to destroy
  2. Always keep finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made a decision to shoot
 that target
  3. Know your target, backstop and areas all around a shooting activity

  4. Treat every gun as if it were loaded. Always be sure of the load condition of any firearm you handle
  5. Use proper safety equipment (ear/eye protection)

No ammunition is EVER allowed in a classroom. Upon instructors request, or for range training only exercises, bring unloaded gun in a closed case from your locked vehicle to the range. Do not remove or handle gun until instructed to do so. Keep ammo packaged separately from your gun case.

Each class will have additional safety rules specific to the facility and the level of firearms training being conducted.

 In order to maintain a safe learning environment for all students, rules will be strictly enforced, including removal of non-compliant students from the firing line or the facility itself. The instructor has the right and responsibility to remove any student that behaves in a manner that is determined to be unsafe, or a distraction to the other students. CenTex Gun Training llc reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.

Prep For Texas Handgun License To Carry Classes.....

It is required that all LICENSE-TO-CARRY-CLASS participants have a basic understanding of handgun fundamentals and marksmanship. There is no time to teach gun-handling  skills in LTC classes due to The State of Texas required material that must be covered.  Anyone unsure of their basic handgun skills should take our NEW SHOOTER-INTRO TO FIREARMS class or other range shooting class prior to the License To Carry Class. It is the sole responsibility of each individual to determine if they are legally qualified  to receive a Texas Concealed Handgun License. No refunds shall be issued after an individual has completed our LTC training courses and is determined to not be legally eligible to receive a Texas Handgun license to carry from the State of Texas.

Our firearms training is open to those that can legally use firearms under local, state and federal laws.

Minors are welcome to attend any course, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and are not allowed in range-shooting courses without pre-course evaluation by the course instructor.
