Texas CHL (Concealed Handgun License) has been renamed to Texas LTC (License to Carry)
There are great proven techniques and products out there, but can be difficult to find. Please remember that everything included in our website are just recommendations, because every person is different, and what works for me may not work for you, and vice versa. Keep it simple, practice, and remember the basics!
The fact that you are researching the subject is a great in the right direction!
The proper mindset of a CHL holder, or anyone wanting to protect themselves, can be broken down into 5 areas. Each area builds on its self, with the first goal being avoidance, and the end goal Survival an attack, heaven forbid that it ever get that far.

No matter what your end goal, the basics are always the same and should be adhered to at all times
While there are the “Basics” may change in wording, they mean the same. DoubleActionCHL recommends the NRA wording; however, some instructors may combine two of the rules into one.

While this might not be the gun you shoot the most at the range, you should practice with it regularly
Deciding on how you want to carry and choosing the correct holster to use to hold you CHL pistol is almost as difficult as finding the right pistol. In fact, they are linked together. Here is our advice, do your own homework. No one can tell you what the best choice for you is; however, there are some good solid standards that are time tested.

Some say this is the other way around and you decide on a pistol on how you are going to carry, not true!
After you have decided on which CHL Pistol(s) you are going to purchase and carry, next is deciding on the holster and how you are going to carry. You might have to change your dress, around your CHL pistol. Keep in mind that you might have more than one holster, and you may decide that you didn’t like what you purchased. Don’t worry, they sell great on eBay!

These are items you carry with every single day in addition (or even when you can’t carry) to your pistol
”Everyday Carry” items are exactly that. Items you carry with you (or very close to you) at all times, even when you can’t carry a CHL (CCW) pistol. These items can be supplemental to a CHL pistol, but also have self-defense or emergency response properties of their own. Many are “common sense” items, but some might not be.

Even if you are defending your life, you can still be tried for a crime or sued. Be Prepared before hand!
At least in Texas, even if you are defending your life and your families life, you most likely will have to go in front of a Grand Jury, a full trial, and/or a civil trial. You need that advocate on your side throughout the entire process.
