LTC Austin IWB

The Concealed Carry Fundamentals online class was designed for everyone that wants to carry a handgun for self-defense. We walk you through the process of selecting the proper equipment for concealed carry, show you how to carry your gun, and lastly, teach how to properly and safely draw your gun from a concealed holster.

This is not a Texas License to Carry class. The Texas License to Carry class does not teach you how to carry a gun. Or how to draw from a holster. This class covers what the Texas LTC class lacks. 

It is highly recommended to take both the LTC class and this Concealed Carry Fundamentals class. These two classes complement each other and together, they provide extensive information on carrying a handgun for self-defense.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between this class and the License to Carry class?

The Texas License to Carry class and this Art of Concealment class are two very different classes that work to accomplish one primary goal: to safely and effectively carry a handgun for self-defense.


Being a state mandated course to get an LTC, the License to Carry class is tightly regulated by Texas DPS and primarily covers states laws and regulations surrounding gun ownership and self-defense in Texas.


The Art of Concealment class was developed as a “next step” class for individuals wanting to carry a handgun. It goes into detail on equipment selection and how to actually carry the handgun in a concealed holster. The material taught is extremely valuable information and is, unfortunately, often overlooked by individuals that want to carry for self-defense.

Do I need a Texas LTC for this class to be beneficial?

Absolutely not. Whether you have an LTC, are looking to get one, or simply carry under permitless carry law, this class will be extremely beneficial. 


If you are thinking about carrying a handgun concealed, or maybe you already do but need guidance with your draw and gear, then this course will have information and teach skills you need to know.

Can I follow along at home with my handgun?

Absolutely! Following all of the safety rules and guidelines described in the class, we encourage everyone to follow along with their own handgun and holster. 


You can also watch the equipment selection sections, and after purchasing a concealed carry holster, come back to the practical practice sections and follow along with your equipment.

How long is the class?

The class is broken up into short videos, but the total class length is 2 hours and 23 minutes.


By default, you have 6 months to complete the class. If you need more time to go through the course, just let us know.
