Texas CHL (Concealed Handgun License) has been renamed to Texas LTC (License to Carry)

Off Person LTC Carry (CHL Carry)

Remember, you are still responsible for that pistol at all times

Briefcase and Purse

Keep is close to you

One popular, but least recommended, technique is called off-person carry. This means that your primary defense weapon (CHL carry pistol) is not physically on your person or body, but located in a holster in a case of some sort. Purse or brief case are the most common examples of this type of CHL Carry technique.

Purse Concealment Carry

Purse CHL Pistol Carry

There are great brands available with special pockets that have built in holsters

CHL Purse Carry means that the CHL Concealment Pistol is located inside your purse, inside a holster that is located in a dedicated pocket. You should never carry your CHL Concealed Pistol just thrown inside a purse pocket. Not only can this damage your handgun, but you may not be able to draw your weapon quickly enough in a self-defense situation.

Since this is the choice of many women who CHL (CCW) carry, we have dedicated a entire Purse CHL Carry Page on this subject, but also visit our webpage about the CHL Carry Options for Women

CHL Case Carry

There are many case that don’t look like a gun case, but are...

CHL Case Carry means that the holster is located inside your case like a briefcase, or some other type of concealment case, inside a holster that is located in a dedicated pocket. You should never carry your CHL Concealed Pistol just thrown inside a case. Not only can this damage your handgun, but you may not be able to draw your weapon quickly enough in a self-defense situation.

Manufactures are slow to this market, but they are creating more products everyday.

 

Pros:

  • A larger weapon chassis can be carried in this fashion with means a large caliber with more ammo capacity.

Cons:

  • A briefcase often the first thing that an attacker grabs during an attack. If your CHL Concealed pistol is located in the briefcase, now your attacker(s) have your weapon.
  • Drawing your weapon using this CHL Concealed Carry method, can take longer than other methods. Practice can help reduce your draw time, but it will never be as fast as on-person carry.
  • The case shouldn't be set down or out of your site at anytime.

CHL Pack Carry

Just like with the purses, there are many great options and brands

CHL Pack Carry means that the holster is located inside your pack case, inside a holster that is located in a dedicated pocket. You should never carry your CHL Concealed Pistol just thrown inside a pack pocket. Not only can this damage your handgun, but you may not be able to draw your weapon quickly enough in a self-defense situation.

The most common of these and lease recommended is the fanny pack. Manufactures have many new chooses, but they do have limited application.
