Great people, great value, excellent CHL class! I wouldn't send anyone anywhere but Central Texas Gun Works for CHL classes! Michael Cargill does an excellent job of not only teaching you the ins and outs of having a CHL but also stresses heavily on conflict resolution and how to get yourself out of a sticky situation without ever needing to use your weapon. Everybody is always helpful and friendly, they even have events like Guns 'N Giggles (comedy night)! I mean what's not to love about this place. If you have a CHL and are a Texas Law Shield member you won't find a cheaper FFL transfer anywhere! Even when they weren't able to help me out (a rare occasion) they were able to point me in the right direction. My only wish is that they had a bigger selection in the display cases but I'm still more than happy to give them my money whenever possible.

Took my CHL class a couple weeks ago at Central Texas Gun Works. The owner Michael Cargill normally teaches part of the class. However, he was not available that day, but did make an appearance to introduce himself and teach one section. The instructor that did teach the class was Jeremy. He had a good sense of humor, while at the same time was very knowledgeable. The class moved at a steady pace and was informative. They do serve breakfast and lunch, nothing gourmet, but at least you get fed. The only downside was that we were there on a very rare cold and rainy day in September. The shooting portion of the class takes place at a very basic range not far from the COTA track. Due to all the rain, it was incredibly muddy when we were there. Despite this, the instructors moved through each group of shooters quickly in order for us all to finish the class. (They did offer to let us come back and finish the shooting portion if we did not want to brave the elements that day.)

I took my CHL class here last weekend and the class was great. The instructor kept things interesting and lively while informing us of what we needed to know and answering all questions. Lunch was provided (Little Ceasars) which was nice but no breakfast like the website says. UPDATE: I've had a few more interactions with the guys at Central Texas Gun Works. I've had a few questions/clarifications wrt CHL law. I shoot Mike an email and he's very quick and friendly in his response. I've also used to as my new FFL. They're cheap ($15 w/CHL, $20 w/o), conveniently located, friendly and decently easy to get a hold of. My old FFL (Gary Johnson) is great, I used him for years but he's way out on 290 west out past the Y and he recently raised his FFL transfer prices.

The classes are long but the instructors do a great job of keeping the content fun and interesting, plus they served breakfast and lunch! Great place to also purchase your weapon, their team makes sure to understand your needs in order to recommend you the perfect gun at a price suitable to your budget.

Took my CHL Class yesterday and it was VERY informative. Not a lot of dry facts just pulled out of the book and put up on a board. Many good videos, some humorous, many more thought provoking. "What was that idiot thinking?" was said more than once. Maybe, hopefully, seeing those videos will make us stop & think twice, when we have a gun jam or have to take a shot, and be more aware of our surroundings, if an innocent bystander can get hurt. Oh, and the "Pizza, Pizza!!" lunch wasn't bad either... Class moved at steady pace with questions asked and answered. Basic gun handling & safety were emphasized, with little tweaks and pointers for better control & accuracy. I would wholeheartedly recommend Central Texas Gun Works to anyone who is looking for a CHL Class in the Austin area.

Great company to deal with, made it very easy to use Bitcoin to purchase a revolver and have it sent to my local shop. Will be buying from them again in the future.

The ten hours I spent here.. were fantastic. I met great people and all the instructors are awesome. I love the humor, it makes the class fun! Never thought it was going to be fun. Out at the shooting, I was needing help, and with no hesitation, they were there to do it, and in a very professional way. Anyone wanting a CHL this is where you want to go get it. Mike provides breakfast and lunch, which makes the day easier and again, very wonderful staff. Great time today!
