I am in Frisco. Where is the best place to take the first time CHL class? Doesn't have to be the cheapest, I want a good instructor and decent facility.

Would recommend The Bullet Trap in Plano, took my renewal there last fall.

I recommend Larry Bartek. He's Plano PD, excellent instructor and knows his stuff. Not sure where he is doing his quals now, since he was using Backwoods Traps. larry@handguninstructor.com

I can advise you check out D&L Training Academy. http://mychl.com/, I work with the owner in his "other" gig and its his family business. They hold the classes in a single day and provide Glocks for use in the training. Its his family business and they are great to deal with. They have a booth at most of the DFW shows and hold the class at the Bass Pro Shops range. Good people. -22

I second Bullet Trap. They have it down to a science. You can get your passport photos, prints and everything done there for one price.

P.S. I'm in Frisco too.

My vote is on Larry Bartech. He is a top notch instructor. He goes beyond the normal CHL class. He includes some very good gun handling skills. The classes have a freindly feel. He works on shooting skills before you qualify by shooting targets with .22's that he supplies. If you have been shooting a while the class is fun. Even if you have never picked up a handgun he helps bring you up to speed and confortable before qualifing. My wife and I took it about 4 months ago and she loved it. She normally doesn't care to go to the range with me, but she was ready to sign up for an advanced class after this one.
