    I took mine (and the renewal) from Tom Schaefer of KR Training. A friend took hers at either Cabela's or Sportsman's Warehouse. From what she said, I'm glad I went through KR Training.

    The class isn't actually in Austin, it's in Lockhart - about an hour away.

    Another place to take the course is at Central Texas Protection Training Academy (Central Texas Protection Training Academy, LLC). It's also in Lockhart. The instructor is Matt Billingsley. He runs the best shooting range I've found in the area.

    CHL at Red's

    I have taken my renewal at Red's the last 2 times I have done it. Calvin teaches the course at the South store and he is a nice guy, retired cop. He keeps it interesting and doesn't spend a lot of time just droning on about the regs, and he has actually carried a gun quite a bit and can give you the policeman's perspective on how you will be seen/treated by law enforcement. The best part is that it is a one stop shop, they take your photos, notarize your docs and do your fingerprints. Plus you get to do your shooting on site.

    I have known Tom (at KR) for many years. He knows his stuff (retired cop). Karl (da boss) is great. Trained/shot IPSC w/him. Good guy.

    If you want to insure you are not being taught by an undercover Mall Ninja. KR can guarantee quality instruction. And their range is on site

    I'm also looking for a place to take a CHL class. I'm often only in Austin over the weekends, so someplace that supplies all the paperwork as well as feeding me would be appreciated. No worries if it is a bit more than some classes, I'm willing to pay for the reduction in hassle factor. I live in north Austin, so someplace within half an hour or so would also be a good thing.

    Hopefully there will be a good class with openings soon.

    Suggestions?

    I did Schaeffers too and had a great time. It was all inclusive so that rocked. Fingerprints, photos, paperwork, range, and hamburgers!
