S.P.C. to Offer New Concealed Handgun License Course
South Plains College will offer the new, shorter Concealed Handgun License course on Saturday,September 6th, in the Law Enforcement Technology building on the Levelland campus.† Class will begin at 8:00 a.m., and will include breaks every hour and a one-hour break for lunch.† The classroom portion will be done by 3:00 p.m. and the length of the range portion will depend on the number of students.† The cost is $70 for students seeking their first license, and $25 for students wanting a refresher course before renewing their license.† Although renewals are now handled strictly online, the fifteen or more changes in Texas firearms law last summer make a refresher course a good investment.
The course covers the laws pertaining to concealed carry and to the use of force or deadly force.† Safe gun handling and storage, including storage with children in the home, are covered, as is non-violent dispute resolution.
Students will need a handgun and fifty rounds of ammunition.† They must pass a twenty-five question written test, and demonstrate safe and proficient gun handling, scoring at least seventy percent on a shooting test at distances ranging from three to fifteen yards.† Inexperienced shooters might want to take the N.R.A. Basic Pistol course before taking the C.H.L. course.
Students need to call Kasey Reyes at 716-2341 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to enroll.† Because of the range requirements, space is limited.
