Shooting and Proficiency Objective:
We take the shooting test at an indoor range. You must be able to safely handle and fire a handgun before taking the shooting test. The shooting test is not a beginner’s class. The DPS requires our instructors to monitor and score your proficiency test in order to make sure only qualified individuals who can safely and accurately handle a firearm obtain a Armed Private Security Commission or License To Carry.
An applicant must be able to demonstrate, at minimum, the degree of proficiency that is required to effectively operate a handgun of .32 caliber or above. The instructor shall, through observation and/or practical exercise, determine if the student is able to safely load, unload, and manipulate the safety features of his/her weapon during the demonstration period.
