I'm finally back home in Corpus and my husband, Dad and myself are raring to get our CHL class done. Unfortunately, all the slots are full down at the Sharp Shooter until June :eek:

Is anyone available or know smeone who does CHL private classes in the area?

Houston Area

It'd be a drive for you, but at Thunder Gun Range in Conroe, Jesse does a CHL class every Saturday reservations necessary (unless something's changed)....

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the heads up. You're right though, Conroe would be a drive. We went to Missouri City and back yesterday to pick up my new truck.

I saw the schedule at Shiloh and its darn tempting. But again, out Houston way.

We'll see what happens. We need to get in asap to get this done. We'll keep searching around

Offhand, I can't view the pdf on the DPS site with certified instructors list. I'm on dial up here and theconnection doesn't stand a chance.

Also, I googled "CHL class Corpus Christi" and came up with a couple hits. One is this class here: Corpus Christi CHL - Concealed Handgun License classes in Corpus Christi

Can anyone offer input or take a look at the link and tell me what you think? These are the instructor's quals as listed on his "about" page:

He has slots open at the end of the month and it looks like the best opportunity to get in soon. REading through the site, it looks like a thorough place to get the class done. Just looking for opinions :)

Are you still looking to do a class? Got one coming up this Sunday (Feb 15th) in Padre Island (78418) if you are interested in coming out. It starts at 8am and ends at 6pm. The class will include 6 others.

Definitely! I'm glad to get the class and range done. I still need to get my money order to toss in the packet but its good to be mostly done.

I enjoyed the group. Laid back and friendly - it certainly made for a good day.
