    Looking for information on an online class. What would be the best one to do? Do you have to go somewhere specific for the shooting portion? Anyone here had any success getting their ltc this way?

    I don't know of any. But given the tiny amount of information required. It would be perfect for the online classroom. And for gun training you could just play Doom for a hour or so. It worked for a small Police dept. in California. Go Wild Hogs!

    A lot of other instructors I have spoken to are not going to bother with online LTC range qualification as it will be a pain in the ass as far as scheduling and they typically will not work with you on your schedule.( IE not going to schedule a day to run your qual for $xxx, for the same reason a lot do not do one person classes.)

    Point Blank is located in Wichita Falls. They have an online course for $60. They will allow you to do the shooting qualification, at no charge, at their location if you take their online course. That's about a 100 mile drive for you tho.

    Your best bet would to be to call around to several places nearer you and see if they will let you take just the shooting portion during one of their regularly scheduled classes.

    Or just take a class for the same $60 and get it all knocked out at once.

    DPS made the online class a major pain in the ass deliberately.

    The only people it is not a pain in the ass for would be people who are exempt from the shooting portion already.

    Keep in mind that if you take an online class, you don't just get to show up at the range and qualify with an instructor. There is a mandatory classroom portion before the instructor can take you onto the range and qualify you.

    Like many have said above. Most places and instructors will not just qualify you for shooting. It’s almost money out of their pocket. They’d rather you just take the full class with them that way they can make their money

    It is more about time than the money.

    The online class was designed for people who would be exempt from the shooting portion of the class anyway.

    By the time it is all said and done, if you are not exempt from range qual, you will spend more time on the online class ( and money) than if you just blocked a half a day out and took a traditional class.

    LE, some active duty military, some retired LE are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
