For those taking our 3+hr Mandatory Concealed Carry Re-certification Course: $50 This is what you will need in Illinois once your Concealed Carry License gets close to expiring. You will need a minimum 50 rds of ammo, two mags, and a holster. This class is a 3+ hr mandatory minimum.....our experience the first time we taught it is that it will take all of 4 hours, so plan on that. Dates will be posted as we get enough inquiries.
For those taking our Tactical/Advanced Shooting Course: $75 This will be a one day 4 1/2 - 5 hour training course on the dates and times listed. During this course, you will learn and train to a higher level to give you a better chance of survival in the real world. Strategic tactics and shooting on the move will be the primary focus with a lot of hands-on time. This is a course that will push your skill set, but is not a pass or fail, or used to compare you to others in the class. It will be just a fun day in which you can take ideas home with you to help increase your efficiency and effectiveness in your training going forward. You will need 150 rounds of ammunition. We will allow snacks during the training breaks and any classroom training and will train straight through (no meal break).
Full 16 hours - this is a Two Day Class: $200 This class will cover everything needed to apply for an Illinois concealed carry permit.*With this certification you will also be able to apply for several states concealed carry permits.*This price does not include fingerprints, but you don't need to pay extra for them anyway. The Illinois State Police concealed carry division states that it may take up to 30 extra days to process your application, but you DO NOT NEED TO BE FINGERPRINTED. We can lead you to a finger print vendor if you still want the fingerprints to be submitted, but it is not necessary. Don't be afraid that you won't be able to keep up with the rest of the class....we've had "newbies" (some had never shot a pistol before coming to the training-TRUE STORY) come in and by day 2, out shoot many of the seasoned shooters. It's easier to teach a newbie, because they haven't learned a bunch of bad habits. We teach the style that the top shooters in the world use, including the military's elite forces. It has proven itself in time to be the most effective and easiest to acclimate to for efficient shooting. We teach the basics on Day 1 and continue from there. WE GUARANTEE we can make you a better shooter in just a few hours. We've had several hundred students over the last several years, and everyone but one has passed the state's mandatory qualification at the end of Day 2 without fudging on any of it. We have supreme confidence that we can make an efficient shooter out of anyone in a short period of time. It's fun for us to see the improvement in a very short time. We keep it simple and easy to understand.
8 hours only - Day 2 Concealed Carry Class: $100 This class will be for anyone who has 8 hrs credit prior training as approved by the Illinois State Police (check below for what counts).You must provide proof of completion of prior training (there is a list of what qualifies below) prior to being allowed into just the 8 hour class. If you are going to use 4 hours of credit you must have two classes to equal 8 hours of credit to take the 8 hour class. Regardless of how many credit hours of prior training you have you must take the 8 hour class (second day) at a minimum. *This price does not include fingerprints, but you don't need to pay extra for them anyway....The Illinois State Police concealed carry division states that it may take up to 30 extra days to process your application, but you DO NOT NEED TO BE FINGERPRINTED. We can lead you to a fingerprint vendor if you still want the fingerprints to be submitted, but it is not necessary.
8 hour Basic Pistol Class (Day 1): $100 If you just want to take a basic pistol class and learn about shooting a pistol without getting your concealed carry license you can sign up for any Day 1 class portion.
