    I need to check the handbook, but I thought the course for TX was specified. What is posted above doesn't seem to match my recollection, but its been 4 years since I took my last range test.

    Bottom line. It is an easy thing to pass. Just follow the rules and the instructions. Make sure you know what the sequence will be ahead of time. You can blow off all of the 15 yard shots and still pass. And if you can't make the 3 yard shots and get your first 100 points right there, its time to go home.

    Anyway, good post. And important for the Texas folks.

    Yeah. I am really amazed by the testing in Texas. The test is super easy, in my opinion. I have taken it... I think 4 times now. Each time I've scored either a perfect score, or really darned close. During my last test, about 6 months ago, I was the only one taking the test that day who already had CHL (just renewing). Everyone else was taking the primary course, including my wife. There were many people who barely passed. My wife passed with a very good margin. But the instructor held up my target to the class and said this was the only perfect score and the difference between it and everyone else's was quite obvious.

    Anyway.. on one hand, I feel like people shouldn't have to be tested in order to get a license. But on the other hand, I suppose the Texas test is so easy that if you can't pass it then there is serious doubt as to whether you could even hit a BG without killing somebody else in the process.

    I wish there was some incentive to get people who carry to shoot more.
