Illinois Concealed Carry Class FAQ

No. While some instructors will require students to have their own gun to take the class, Alpha Koncepts understands many students are new to the gun world. Therefore we include a segment in our class about how to purchase the right gun for you and will gladly rent handguns to our students to use for class.
No. While some instructors do require students have a FOID card to take the Illinois Concealed Carry Licensing class, Alpha Koncepts will allow students to attend without a FOID card. In fact if you do not already have a FOID card, we recommend you apply for one at the same time as your concealed carry license, but not sooner. We shall discuss how to apply in class.
Class dates can be found on the Alpha Koncepts calendar or you may contact us to speak to one of the staff.
While some other instructors charge additional range fees, Alpha Koncepts usually includes the range fee. Check the individual calendar listing to be sure! Your state application fee(s) are not included. These fees are paid directly to the state. Finger prints are optional for the Illinois concealed carry license application and therefore are not included. Most students do not get finger printed for the Illinois license. Students will be required to provide ammunition and firearms, or may also rent them.
Finger prints are optional and not a requirement of the Illinois Concealed Carry License, but are for Florida and Arizona. However students may choose to have their finger prints taken for Illinois. This shall be discussed in class. More information can be read here. Are finger prints required for an Illinois Concealed Carry License?
