May 4th Concealed Carry Class - NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course

Qualification April 14

Concealed carry classes, in the form of the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course, are proceeding well.  The next one will be May 4th in LaGrange.  Here is a link to register for that date:

May 4th NRA Basic Pistol / Concealed Carry Class

This is an 8 hour class that will provide you with an NRA certificate that satisfies the Florida concealed carry permit training requirement.  In addition, students will be able to shoot for qualification for the Illinois concealed carry permit, as outlined in pending legislation in Springfield (House Bill 1155, Amendment 27).
This class is designed by the NRA for both the beginner and the more seasoned shooter.  The beginner will learn all the basics of firearms operations, safe handling and marksmanship.  The more seasoned shooter will benefit from a refresher of the basics, reinforcement of safe handling and the opportunity to relearn the fundamentals of marksmanship.

In addition to the regular NRA curriculum, time will be spent teaching the basics of the Illinois law for UUW (unlawful use of a weapon), use of justifiable deadly force, and concealed carry techniques.

Proper Grip & Trigger Discipline
This class on May 4th will not be merely a "lecture class" with a speaker and Powerpoint presentation. Rather, this class will be interactive and include time with hands-on training aids such as dummy pistols and inert training rounds.
The cost of the course is $125 for NRA members and veterans, and $150 for others.  However, if you come with a partner, then you will also get the discounted rate of $125.  There is also a $10 discount for students to join the NRA, which means $25 for a year's membership instead of $35.
