Defensive Pistol Training

This is your next step after you’ve completed your Concealed Carry Training. In defensive pistol classes, you shall learn the critical skills that you need to overcome a violent encounter and master your defensive handgun. Let’s be honest, a concealed carry class lays the foundation. Defensive Pistol training begins to add the levels to your abilities.

Concealed Carry Training

Learn to legally carry a Concealed Firearm in Illinois and many other states. Our training classes qualify the student to apply for not only an Illinois concealed carry license but apply for a Florida or Arizona license as well. That’s like taking three classes for the price of one. In this two-day class we discuss all the fundamentals of marksmanship, we discuss the differences between defensive shooting and marksmanship, we discuss numerous gun laws for both Federal and Illinois, and we plant the seeds of the winning mindset you need to not become a victim and overcome a violent encounter.

Alpha Pistol Basics

An excellent beginner class, and the perfect refresher for experienced shooters. This class is included with the two-day concealed carry class, however, some students aren’t yet ready to go all-in on a two-day class. Therefore we offer Pistol Basics as a one-day stand-alone course. This is the perfect course for beginner shooters who wish to learn the proper use of both semi-automatic pistols and revolvers as well.
