Welcome to Concealed Carry San Angelo. This is your first step towards personal protection through concealed carry. You might ask yourself, why should I carry a concealed handgun? The answer is very simple, it is your right. You have the right to protect yourself, your family and your property from criminals. In this day and time, personal protection is a must. Crime is on the rise and it is almost impossible to watch the news without seeing a story about a robbery, assault, rape, kidnapping or murder. Unfortunately, the law officers can not be everywhere at one time to combat the criminals. Why take that chance? If you are in a situation that threatens you or your family's safety, the concealed handgun that you carry in your holster, pocket or purse may be your only hope. No one ever wants to have to draw their handgun on a criminal but no one ever wants to be put in the position to have to make that decision either. At least you will have the option, if you conceal carry. Isn’t it time for you to have protection through concealment?
My goal at Concealed Carry San Angelo is to teach law abiding citizens the laws that relate to concealed carry, the use of force and deadly force, non violent dispute resolutions, proper storage practices for handguns, handgun safety, handgun usage and handgun proficiency. With the use of power point presentations, classroom visuals and open discussions, we make the learning process interesting and knowledgeable. Concealed Carry San Angelo is based in San Angelo, Texas. Currently, classes are held at my home and proficiency is held at San Angelo Gun Range. I will also travel throughout Tom Green and surrounding counties if you would like to have a private or corporate class. I offer gift certificates that make perfect gifts for the gun enthusiast in your life. Contact CCSA for more details.

What is a Texas concealed handgun license?
A concealed handgun license (CHL) allows an individual to carry a concealed handgun where ever it is legal to do so.
Why take a concealed carry class?
Even if you do not intend to carry a firearm, if you own one in the State of Texas, attending this class will furnish you the necessary knowledge of the Texas laws regarding weapons, the use of force and the use of deadly force.
The only way to get a CHL in the state of Texas is to take an approved CHL class. In the class you will learn the laws associated with carrying a concealed handgun, gain the knowledge necessary to legally carry a concealed handgun in Texas, the seven basics of shooting and demonstrate your proficiency with your weapon.
