    Recently i heard that a concealed handgun license in Texas could cost you up to $300 dollars!! Is this a true statement and if so how much does it really cost because i plan on getting one but i would like to be informed of the price so i can begin saving for it. thanks for any input.

    It would depend on the cost of your class. It certainly should cost no more than that.

    The classroom instruction is pretty competitive, there are lots of folks offering it. Mine was only $90 or $100 if I remember correctly, and included all photographs, fingerprints, notarizing, etc., a true one-stop package.

    when I took my first class it was 120.00 that included ammo and a lunch with all the other things needed.so you can find classes from 85.00 to 140.00 for the first one and renewals are running from 50.00 to 100.00 .

    So I would shop around in your area and I bet you can find a good deal.

    Also if you've qualified recently in the military in firearms, you can be exempt from the shooting qualification section of the process. I had read that somewhere.

    The question was answered pretty well. My class with all the goodies was $125. The state fee is on the site above.

    My class was $99 which included everything.

    Plus the standard $140 to DPS.

    I highly recommend

    Bass Pro Shops (Lonestar Handgun) is $80 if you take it with 2 or more people.
