PWFT Presents the Texas License to Carry course utilizing the USCCA Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals materials.
Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals is a comprehensive course for anyone considering owning or carrying a firearm for self-defense. The course is a complete guide to understanding conflict-avoidance and situational awareness; shooting fundamentals; the physiology of violent encounters; the legal aspects of using deadly force (including knowing what to do in the aftermath); and a guide on gear, gadgets, and ongoing training.
We add to this the current laws of LTC as outlined by the Texas DPS.
