Concealed Handguns

What are the requirement for obtaining a concealed handgun license?

The concealed handgun law sets out the eligibility criteria that must be met. You may obtain your application packet from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). The application packet will also include information about materials you will need to return with your application packet.

After receiving completed application packets, DPS will conduct background checks of juvenile records for the pervious 10 years and all adult records.
