Welcome to Schiller Arms ~ Texas License To Carry Class

Need to complete your 101 On Line LTC Class?  Would like to complete it quickly.  Then give us a call 979-776-8727 or send an email.  We can provide the service same day or next day after you complete your online course.  It takes about 1.5 hours for the safety requirements and range proficiency.  The cost is $40.


For the new applicants taking the in person classroom the time is a minimum of 4 hours, maximum of 6 hours. With the volume of material that needs to be covered for your training our goal is not to rush through vital information regarding carrying of a handgun.  We believe students should be well  informed and understand the law. 

The range time is not part of the 4 to 6 hour classroom time.

The grace period after the license expires is still  364 days.


Our class is a one day class with coffee and tea provided.

Thank you for choosing Schiller Arms to meet your LTC training needs. We are located in Bryan-College Station and serve Central Texas in providing information and training to obtain a handgun license. The course covers  classroom instruction on gun storage and child safety, and Texas laws regarding use of force, deadly force, conflict dispute resolution and licensing requirements. 9 mm loaner guns are available at no charge.

We offer a Basic 101 Marksmanship Course and it is done by appointment only. The cost is $35 and takes about one hour per student.  Students are to bring their own ammo.  Loaner guns are available at no charge. This course teaches gun safety, gun handling and marksmanship plus prepares the student for the LTC range qualifications.  Please email for an appointment.   Classes are taught Monday, Wed, and Friday starting at 1:30PM.  Tuesday and Thursday start at 10:30AM.
