Please bring your own lunches, snacks, beverages etc. We have a “working lunch” in all classes. Many of our facilities do not have a place close enough to purchase meals and get back in a reasonable amount of time. Also remember that many of our classes are 10 hour days so if you need another meal in that amount of time please bring it.  Bring water. While we do provide water at all of our locations, it never hurts to bring some more (coffee, tea, hot chocolate will be provided if weather is cold). We teach in many locations and cannot guarantee the comfort of the chairs. If that might be an issue for you feel free to bring a cushion to sit on.


There are a total of 50 spots available. This class usually fills quickly.






Due to the nature of our instruction, it is REQUIRED to provide us with one or more of the following when registering for all classes:


a. Current State Issued Permit to carry a concealed handgun


b. Current FFL – Federal Firearms License


c. Current FOID Card (Illinois Residents only)


d. Current Police or Military ID


e. Other current proof of clean criminal record. Most sheriff’s departments will run these for you at a nominal fee, done routinely in many occupations.
