Texas permit less or "Constitutional Carry" goes into affect September 1, 2021, for Texas residents who are not prohibited by state or federal law from possessing a gun, however there are some restrictions that apply. Unlicensed citizens may not carry a handgun in the same places a licensed person can. Constitutional carry is a great concept, but state legislators laid the burden at your feet to still know the law, understand the use of force and deadly force, and prohibited places. You can still take our license to carry online class to get all of this knowledge and information, without having to shoot the proficiency exam or apply for a license with the state. You will carry your firearm with more confidence, knowing you took responsible steps to ensure you are knowledgeable of the law as it applies to carrying a firearm. Upon completion we will still send you the completion certification, and it will be up to you to apply for the license or just use the class as a knowledge base for constitutional carry.
There are benefits to obtaining the actual license for yourself. For starters, if you plan on traveling outside of Texas with your handgun, you will need a license to carry in order to benefit from the reciprocity Texas has with 30+ states. If you get caught in another state, carrying your handgun concealed or openly, and that state requires a license, you may be subject to felony charges. Another great benefit for gun owners and enthusiast, is that with a license to carry in Texas, you can avoid having to go through the background check when purchasing a new firearm. The background check you went through when you applied for the license takes care of that for you.
