About the Proficiency Demonstration
Everyone that takes a Texas online License to Carry class, regardless of the company, will need to complete the proficiency demonstration before being able to submit your LTC-101 certificate. Prior shooting experience with the ability to safety and properly handle your pistol is required. This does not teach students how to shoot. You do not need to be an expert marksman, just the ability to safety handle your pistol and shoot 50 rounds from 3 yards out to 15 yards.
The proficiency demonstration consists of 2 parts. The range instruction portion and the shooting qualification. Both portions are required by the Texas Department of Public Safety in order for the LTC instructor to sign off on your LTC-101 certificate.
The range instruction is required by DPS to ensure that the student paid attention during the online course and is an overview of the material covered during the classroom portion. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions that you may have from taking the class. It is at the discretion of the LTC instructor on how this section is taught.
The shooting qualification is a total of 50 yards shot at a B27 target. 20 rounds are shot from 3 yards, 20 rounds from 7 yards, and 10 rounds from 15 yards. The LTC instructor will give you exact instructions on the course of fire so you do not need to have it memorized. A score of 70% or higher is required to pass.
