As a US ARMY Veteran, First I would like to say that Phil and Ceasere are both great instructors, they made both the range and classroom fun, but also take it seriously. I can now walk confidently around or driving being a future LTC owner

My girlfriend and I took the class (range + class after) and both Phil and Caesar were very informative and made the whole thing really fun. They provided a ton of snacks for us during class too!

Both instructors were very cool dudes. Both Phil and Cesar are very informative, professional and fun to be around. The class gave me and my wife lots of good knowledge. Looking forward to taking one of the other classes they have to offer

In addition to CHL training, TCCI offers a full range of defensive weapons training for handgun, carbine and shotgun in successively more challenging levels. The instruction is first-class, and includes lots of "street wise" scenarios based on the instructors' LE experience. I especially recommend the "Concealment and Low LIght" class which provides invaluable techniques for carrying concealed and drawing and engaging with a concealed weapon. And the drills in low light and no light situations are particularly "illuminating" (pardon the pun). No matter how good you are - or think you are - these classes will make you better.

I took the LTC gun training on 9/26/2020. The instructors are efficient and very effective. Just by following their instructions, I was able to score well past the requisite to pass the test. This is amazing, considering that this is the 5th time I shoot any handgun and the 2nd time I shoot this newly bought handgun. 12/6/2020 update Since September 2020, I had taken the two more classes, the Level 1 Defensive Handgun and Concealment & Low Light from this place. I had also taken two other sessions with instructors at other gun ranges plus many shooting sessions. What I learned is that while the instructors at the gun ranges are helpful and can get you started with how to choose your gun and the basic mechanic of shooting a handgun, the normal gun range environment (shooting from behind a bench/shelf) can only bring you so far along. To be really proficient with using a handgun to defend yourself and your family, you really need the kind of trainings provided by the Texas Concealed Carry Institute. Phil and Cesare are excellent instructors. My skill level increases more in one day with Phil and Cesare than a whole month practicing at gun ranges. If you are serious about learning to use handguns, or any other guns for that matter, Texas Concealed Carry Institute is the best place to start.

This course is amazing and Phil and Cesare are great! I did my research on where to take it and I'm real glad I took this course with them. You won't find anybody more professional, more focused on you learning what you need to learn, or more experienced about the subject than these guys. I came away with greater respect for the responsibility and accountability I have as a gun owner with a license to carry. Thank you for making this a great way to spend my Saturday!

I took the LTC-100, which is a great class to take if you’re planning on being a first time gun owner. Phil and Caesar are very knowledgeable on gun safety, handling, and state law centered around gun ownership. I felt safe with them and I highly recommend taking their class.
