What to expect in a Illinois CCL CCW Class
This class meets or exceeds all Illinois’s laws to obtain a license to carry a concealed pistol.
I completed the Introduction to Firearms and the CPL Class this month and highly enjoyed both! The instructors were very professional and presented the materials in a easy to learn, hands on approach. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks Will, Jeff and Mike!
My husband and I both took the this CPL class. After talking to other people who have taken other classes, we decided to take this class. This is the best and most informative class available. The instructors are so patient and so knowledgable of all aspects of the material being offered and of the numerous rules and regulations of owning and using a gun. The instructors offer the students a vast choice of guns to try and to practice with. If you are looking to take a CPL classs, we highly recommend you take no other class than this one. You will truly become so educated in using your weapon of choice. P&J Wixom
I took the Intro class with Will. He was incredibly patient and encouraging! I could not ask for a better instructor. Though I had never fired a gun before and had zero experience with them, after the 3 hour class I feel completely safe and confident around guns. I look forward to taking the full CPL class and getting more practice in shooting! Thank you Will!
The CPL class is truly THE BEST. I can't think of a single thing to improve upon. The 8 hours flew by and I learned so much. Awesome instructors, tons of useful information and hands-on practice. I drove 2 hours round trip for the class and I would absolutely do it again. Thank you Darcy, Thank you Will!!
My husband and I took the class today. Will was a great instructor, very patient with all my questions and my nervousness. After the range practice I was definitely not as scared of hand guns. I would recommend this class to everyone. Great job Will !!!!!!
All aspects of safe concealed carry are covered in detail. "Hands on" usage of many types of pistols and holsters is encouraged to make this class an excellent resource to increase your knowledge and awareness to make you a safe and confident CPL candidate. Expert personal and patient gun range coaching on your shooting techniques made this a real confidence booster by increasing my accuracy and consistency.
My wife and I took the CPL class together. She had never handled a pistol before & was apprehensive about doing so. Our instructor was extremely patient with her and she passed the written exam with a 100% score and easily passed the NRA shooting qualification exam! We both are now eligible to apply for our CPL.
If you are considering taking a beginner class or a CCW/CPL class, this is definitely the place to do it! Jeff and Will are wonderful! They take the time to give individual attention to all who attend, even if that means running the class longer than the designated time. Lots of hands-on instruction is a plus for those who have never held a gun before.
I took the CPL & Home Protection class at my husbands urging. Though I wasn"t a complete beginner I could not believe all the things I learned from the most patient instructors you will ever meet. Jeff Wright was very giving with his time and showed the class all kinds of things like different pistols, holsters and stances for shooting. A very pleasent and fun day. Thank you !
MY DAUGHTER AND I TOOK THE BEGINNER CLASS AND I TOOK THE CPL CCW CLASS AS WELL. WILL AND JEFF WERE VERY PATIENT INFORMATIVE,AND THOROUGH.... WHEN AT THE SHOOTING RANGE BEST TIME EVER...WE BOTH WERE PRETTY GOOD SHOOTERS...
