The State of Illinois is expecting over 400,000 applications for Concealed Carry Licenses in the first few years alone. Initial estimates are that the wait for classes could be 6 months or more, with the shooting part of the certification having a much greater lead time. DO NOT WAIT, REGISTER NOW! All classes will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.

The Range Use Fee of $23.00 , and fingerprinting fee of $55.00, are seperate fees from our class costs.

Range Requirements for the Illinois Concealed Carry License are as follows:

1. 10 shots at a B-27 silhouette target from a distance of 5 yards (15 feet) .

2. 10 shots at a B-27 silhouette target from a distance of 7 yards (21 feet) .

For you to pass the range qualification portion of your Illinois Concealed Carry License Training, you must hit the silhouette target in the black area, at least 21 out of 30 shoots fired, or a score of at least 70%.

The range fee costs for the Range Qualification portion of your CCW class is $23.00 and is paid by you directly to us prior to your Range Qualification.

YOU MUST BRING YOUR CURRENT ILLINOIS FIREARMS OWNER IDENTIFICATION CARD (FOID) WITH YOU, WHEN YOU COME TO THE RANGE QUALIFICATION PORTION OF YOUR CCW CLASS.

Hearing and eye protection is required for the Range Qualification portion of your CCW class. We will provide hearing protection, and safety glasses to you at no additional cost. Unless you wish to use your own hearing and eye protection.

The cost of ammunition for the Range Qualification portion of your CCW class is your responsibility. The price of the ammunition depends on the caliber of the handgun you will be using, and is normally paid for by you to the Gun Range, at the time of the Range Qualification.

The handgun is also your respinsibility, and if you do not have a handgun to use for your range qualification, a choice of rental handguns is available for an extra charge. You must inform your instructor of your need for a rental handgun during the classroom portion of your CCW class, so that the rental handgun, as well as, 30 rounds of ammunition in the proper caliber for that rental handgun will be available when you arrive at the range for the range qualification portion of your CCW class. The cost of a rental handgun, and 30 rounds of ammunition for that rental handgun is an extra charge over, and above your CCW class fees.

You may bring your own handgun, your own 30 rounds of ammunition, your own Hearing and Eye Protection to the Range Qualification portion of your CCW class.

The date, time, and location of the Range Qualification portion of your CCW class will be communicated to you by email. If you can't attend at that time, you must immediately notify your instructor, so that an alternate date, and time can be set up for the Range Qualification portion of your CCW class.

IN THE PISTOL RANGE, SAFETY IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE ! AND SINCE THERE WILL BE MULTIPLE LOADED HANDGUNS THERE, YOU MUST FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS FROM YOUR INSTRUCTOR.
