As of March 6, 2013 the pending legislation in Springfield lists the NRA Basic Pistol Course as satisfying the training requirement for obtaining an Illinois concealed carry permit. NRA certified Pistol Instructor Mike Bius will be conducting 8 hour course in the western suburbs of Chicago starting in April.
In addition to qualifying you for an Illinois concealed carry permit, the NRA Basic Pistol Course will take someone from being a beginner who has never fired a gun to someone who has the confidence and knowledge to safely handle and fire handguns. The NRA firearms instruction is second to none.
The cost of the course is $150 plus range fees.
