WE'RE BACK!! Surgery to repair torn rotator cuffs on both shoulders has kept us out of action for several months, but we're "back in the saddle again." For those of you who were among the first to obtain Illinois Concealed Carry Licenses, your licenses are due to expire early next year. To renew your license, the state of Illinois requires a three-hour refresher course, which focuses on the laws associated with concealed carry and the use of deadly force. Applicants for renewal will also have to fire the 30 round qualification course again. (It wasn't that hard the first time, and we know your skills are even better now if you've been practicing.) Other instructors are charging up to $150.00 for this course. We are trying to hold down the cost, especially for our former students, who will pay only $60. New students will still get a bargain at $75. As before, the course fee does not include range time, target, or ammunition. However, we still do not charge our students to use our firearms if they wish. (Yes, we have a "few" more than last time.) Classes will be held at Five Star Firearms in Zion IL. Class dates are still being scheduled, but let us know if you are interested and we will advise open dates.
Professional Firearms Training, Illinois, LLC is also pleased to offer the following training and services. Please click on the titles for more information. You can also email us to be kept on our list. There's no obligation and we do not share your contact information with anyone.
