We have Illinois State Police approved instructors and our own approved curriculum. 

Private classes available.

Female only classes also available. 


What do I need?

​     Illinois law requires 16 hours of classroom instruction. It is up to the instructor to verify that all training hours meet or exceed that minimum requirements. Instructors are allowed to give up to 8 hours of credit for previous training. The "second" 8 hours must cover Federal and State gun laws as well as a qualifying shoot. 

You will need to bring ear and eye protection, and a minimum of 200 rounds of ammo.

Bring a cleaning kit for your gun, local stores sell inexpensive kits. 
Bring a holster if you have one.
