Texas Concealed Handgun Association
The Texas Concealed Handgun Association is a professional association of License to Carry (LTC) licensees and instructors, law enforcement personnel, and concerned citizens. TCHA is a Texas 501(c)(4) not-for-profit association.
Please join the Texas Concealed Handgun Association (TCHA) as we host a Steel & More Fun Shoot on August 18, 2018 in the Uvalde, Texas area. This event is geared for the everyday shooter. Check-in will be from 8:00 to 9:15 am, with the first shooter starting at 9:45 am. The event will be timed and scoring will be simple. There will be a specific number of rounds allowed per participant and the scoring will be based on the number of hits within the allotted time. Participants will shoot two rounds for a combined total of hits in order to determine the winner. We will have a Shoot-Off Round for tie scores. A trophy will be awarded to the top shot.
