Why get a Texas License To Carry (formerly Concealed Handgun License)? The Texas License To Carry (LTC) is currently recognized for concealed carry in 34 states with more expected to be added. Not only does the Texas LTC permit you to carry your concealed or openly carried handgun in public, it also acts as your background check for gun purchases in Texas (Texas residents only).
