We have many clients request a private Texas LTC course, so here are the requirements and options to host one.
1. The minium course fee is $500, but we will let you spread that cost over up to 7 people. every person over the 7 people adds another $72. Example: A 3 person or a 7 person class costs $500, an 8 person class costs $572, 9 person is $644 etc. We encourage the client hosting the course to collect the fee ahead of time to avoid any attendance issues.
2. We can use your home or land for the course, or use a public range. Living rooms make great classrooms, and it ensures all your friends and family are comfortable, and feel confident in asking pertinant questions during the instruction. We can utilize your HDMI capable TV, or one of ours for the presentation and videos.
In order to use client land for the shooting test, we will need to view it via satellite in order to ensure a safe shooting area. Clients are encouraged to check their own land also, as terrain features are not always distingushable from satellite view.
