An area college will offer a concealed handgun license course early next month.

South Plains College will offer the new, shorter concealed handgun license course on Saturday, November 2nd.

Class begins at 8 a.m. and includes breaks every hour and a one-hour break for lunch. The classroom portion will be completed by 3 p.m. The length of the range portion for the class depends on the number of students taking part.

The course is $70 for students seeking their first license and $25 for students wanting a refresher course before renewing their license.

SPC says that though renewals are now handled online, the changes in Texas firearms law make a refresher course a good investment.

The course will cover laws pertaining to concealed carry and information regarding safe gun handling and storage, storage with children in the home, and non-violent dispute resolution.

Students need a handgun and 50 rounds of ammunition. They must pass a 25-question written test and demonstrate safe and proficient gun handling. Attendees must score at least 70 percent on a shooting test at distances ranging from three to 15 yards.

SPC recommends that inexperienced shooters take the NRA Basic Pistol Course offered by the college before taking the CHL course.
