The state of Illinois requires residents to take a 16 hour class, including a 30 round qualification, to be able to submit an application for a Illinois Concealed Carry License (CCL). The CCL is valid for 5 years, and requires a 3 hour renewal class each time to be completed to submit a renewal with the state police. There is a cost to these classes, as well as a fee from the Illinois State Police for the application.
We offer the full 16 hour class one weekend a month, and do the class and qualification in our store in Momence, IL. The cost of the class is $135 per person, and this includes lunch on Sunday, brought in by a local restaurant. To participate in this class, you must come in and pay for class in full before your spot in the class in secure. If a no call/no show happens your fee is nonrefundable and non transferable. We require a 72 hour notice, in person or call during business hours, if you can not attend. You will be given the chance to be moved to the next available class one time. The classes start at 8am each day, and end at 4pm. Participants need to bring their driver's license, valid FOID card, their firearm, and may bring ammo or buy ammo from the store.
We also offer the 3 hour renewal course once a month as well. This course is taught on Wednesday nights, 5p-8p. This is also taught in the store, with the qualification happening on our range as well. The cost of this class is $75 per person. The process to participate for this class is the same as the 16 hour course. Participants will need to bring all of the things listed for the class above, as well as their current valid CCL.
