Took mine two weeks agon at Sportsmans in Humble.  $75.00 plus $6.00 for lunch.  Was no difficult, just a little boring at times.  I researched a lot of places before taking my class and this was the best price.  plus I like the indoor shooting in case the weather is bad.

We did ours at Thunder on 1314. It's more expensive but you can walk on any Saturday with no prior appointment and get it done.

KingwoodFireArms.com is offering a CHL Class this Saturday, April 6 from 9 am - 1 pm. The cost is $250, which includes a 4 hour class taught by a CHL Instructor who is a former police officer, a prepaid money order for the State of Florida (valued at $112) to send in with the application and a camera/software to take and print a passport photo during the class. There is also a Lieutenant with the HPD fingerprint division to process fingers prints. Lunch or dinner will be provided depending on time of class. So, why go anywhere else? You can come take the class and leave with your package ready to go to the State of Florida. For more information call 713-408-2129.
 
Sorry BOSS @zuesamy but $250 to go to the State of Florida doesn't sound like to good of a deal to me, wonder how many people actually signed up for this ripoff......

From what I learned when taking my CHL, you do not want to do the Florida class if you are a resident of texas and want top carry in Texas.  There seems to be some "loopholes" (for lack of a better term) in taking this class.  I have researched it and spoke with an attorney so if you would like more details please PM me.  In my opinion it leaves a person wide open for huge problems should you be involved in an incident with a concealed weapon in the state of Texas.
Plus $250.00 is absurd.

@ruk72:

Very well said.  Even though Texas and Florida have reciprocity on CHL's, why would you pay this for only 4 hours of instruction to get a Flordia CHL, when you have the option to get a Texas CHL for less, and know that you are 100% covered according to Texas law.  Doesn't make sense to me other than maybe the convenience and availability of it - but in my opinion, learning to properly and safely carry and fire a firearm should not be based on convenience.

I have to agree. The class at Sportsman's is $75 and its a whole day. I do need the instruction as well, I'm not an expert with handguns.

Totally agree...However there was one person in my CHL class who had never picked up a gun before.  That is scary. 
Sportsmans aslo has a basic handgun class that was very good.  4 hours of instruction, you get to shoot 4 different types of guns and they supply everything.  It was a good class.

@tatertot58:

That's a good point.  In a CHL class, the instructor is not going to be able to devote alot of one on one time with those that have never fired a gun, but just to ensure they know the basic proficiency skills to operate and fire.  If someone obtains there CHL with very limited experience, then they need to do do more personal one on one training with someone at the range so that they feel completely comfortable in the operation of their weapon in the event that s*** hits the fan and they need to resort to deadly force.

Wow, who takes a CHL class without handling a gun first? Kinda kooky.

I have never actually fired a handgun, so hubs and I are having a date night at Sportsman's I want to become familiar with the gun before I take the class.

@Katiemcg:

Another good point, but some people see getting their CHL as the first step.  The CHL classes are not designed to teach someone how to fire a handgun but to certify their proficiency.  That would be like someone showing up at DPS to get their license and expect them to teach you how to drive first.  I have met a few people at Sportsmans to teach them basic handling of their weapon to teach them the basics first prior to attending the CHL, so having hubby teach you first is a good move.

When I took my CHL class there were three ladies in the class that had never handled a gun.  The instructor would not pass them until they took a basic hand gun class.  It was a bit scary on that firing range!
