Now that the law has been passed, we know that 16 hours of training will be required.  If you are an honorably discharged veteran, you will be credited 8 hours, leaving you needing only 8 more hours. 

Although the State Police has until Sept. 9th approve instructors and curriculum, our understanding is that they have already indicated that 1) NRA Instructors will be recognized and, 2) NRA courses like the Basic Pistol Shooting Course will count towards the first 8 hours, and 3) NRA Instructors will be approved to teach the second 8 hours as well.

Currently we are offering the 8 hour NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course.

What will this class do for you?  It will qualify you for an Arizona or Florida permit, and will probably satisfy half of the requirement for an Illinois Permit.  This class will help you immensely if you are a total beginner, or even if you are an experienced shooter. You will learn more than just safety at home, on the range, in your car and with a holster.  You will learn how to get "back to basics" to greatly increase your marksmanship, and learn the key to shoot instinctively - that is, shooting "without aiming" in a defensive situation.

Who should take this class?
  • Beginners who have never fired a gun
  • Experienced Shooters who want to get an Arizona or Florida permit or just hone their marksmanship skills and learn how to safely carry concealed and draw from a holster

This class is designed to get you ready with the skills, knowledge and attitude to safely carry a concealed gun. It is NOT a boring class taught by an instructor who just lectures with a powerpoint presentation. Rather, this is an interactive class with very interesting video clips and training aids such as a laser sight and inert training pistols so the day will move by very quickly.

For the seasoned shooter who wants to hone his (or her) skills or the total beginner, this class will help you shoot accurately and safely.
