Concealed Carry Women Only
The Concealed Carry Weapons course is designed to satisfy the requirements to obtain a state of Illinois Concealed Carry permit. Your training will encompass both classroom and live fire training. Our instructors also provide you with a complete overview of the basics of managing unknown contact, basic shooting skills, situational awareness, and equipment/clothing considerations as well as justifiable use of force. Students will be required to pass a practical shooting test involving 30 rounds, 10 rounds at 5 yards and at 7 yards, and 10 rounds at 10 yards. You must achieve a 70% in the scoring area of the target. You will have two chances to qualify. There is no shooting training or practice involved, just the qualification. The course is a total of 16 hours over two days or over four evenings. The state does give a 1/2 day credit if you have taken an Illinois Hunter Safety course or have a concealed carry permit for Utah, Nevada, Missouri, Kentucky, Michigan or Florida. And, an 1 day credit is given if you have taken the NRA Basic Pistol course or if you are active duty military or honorably discharged. Concealed carry classes are $100 for the first day and $125 for the second day.
