To Add A Link

Please send an email to texasconcealedhandgunassoc@gmail.com, which includes the link’s URL, as well as what category it falls under: Self-Defense, Current Events, Special Interests, Legislation or Organizations. Please note that TCHA’s “Links to Other Sites” is to informational web pages only.


We do have another webpage, http://txcha.org/merchandise/vender-discounts/, that provides free advertising if the company provides some type of discount on their products to our members or gives an item of some value for free with any orders made by our members.  Additionally, on a rotational basis, we feature one of the vendors in TCHA’s quarterly journal, The Concealed Handgun, free of charge under a “Membership has it perks…” section.
Finally, we do offer advertising space for a very reasonable price on our website, $100 annually; our weekly e-newsletter, $8 per week; and/or our quarterly journal (i.e., $25.00 per issue for a quarter-page advertisement).
