9:00 am - 5:30 pm
This prescribed course by the State of Illinois covers safety rules, descriptions of state law concerning the FOID Act and the new Concealed Carry Act. It is designed for experienced shooters. (As this is an intermediate course, it is recommended that the student should attend a beginner level course offered here at C.I. Shooting Sports prior to Concealed Carry.) There will be a review of equipment, ammunition and shooting fundamentals, concluding with a 30 round certified qualification course of fire. This course will be taught by Janice Leuchtenberg.
If you are taking the 8 hour CCW course, you must present a DD214 or other state approved course credit certification.
