We have some updates for classes going forward, masks are manditory!  We will distance ourselves whenever possible. There are times when this is not possible, for safety reasons.


Hopefully, we will have a vaccine for this bug soon, and we can get back to our lives. I encourage all with health issues, or the elderly, to consider giving it some time and see if they come up with a solution to this bug.

We absolutely will not let anyone, showing symptoms, attend class....  if you are coughing, or think you may be coming down with something, we ask you to attend a later class.


If you haven't selected a firearm, you might want to wait until after you attend class, we discuss what to look for and the best options. If you choose to wait, you may rent one of ours for $25 per person.


What do I need to bring to class day 1?

Pen and paper only first day.


Second day?

A concealeable handgun and 50 rounds of ammo, or rent one from us.

Eye and hearing protection

A belt and pants with belt-loops to support our holsters

A garment to cover the firearm like a light jacket or extra shirt.


Deposit: I have an emergency, can I reschedule without losing my deposit? No, we need to pay our bills too. If you cancel we pay twice for your attendance


Where? Depends on class size... (Second Day only students call to confirm time and location of class)


When? Most first day classes start at 8:45am and go to 5pm. On the second day, we like to start earlier, we discuss this in class.


How much?  The total training to apply for your Illinois concealed and carry permit is $150, or $205 for Illinois, Utah and Florida (Note: the State of Illinois also requires a $150 fee to apply for your card)


How long? The Illinois concealed carry class requires 16hrs of training.
