How the next generation learns about firearms and firearm safety

is pivotal to the future of gun ownership in America.

It can be an educational, welcoming experience that sparks a lifelong appreciation for firearms and the firearms community.


Or it can be tainted by misinformation, fear and toxic bias.


Every gun owner has to answer one vital question:

Who do you trust to teach your kids and your family about firearms and gun safety? 


Many Americans have chosen to simply hide knowledge about guns from our youth. But building a keen appreciation and respect for firearms from an early age is key to helping the next generation embrace their Second Amendment rights and build a safety-focused approach to guns.

This course will teach you how to make the topic of firearms and safety a positive, welcoming and fun experience for the entire family. You will learn how to introduce your own family to the world of firearms ownership, the gun-safety rules, basic terminology and an understanding of how to properly use firearms.


Whether you are a parent or a grandparent,you will feel confident in

your ability to educate and empower the next generation.

Children's Firearms & Safety

    If you plan on carrying concealed, I will assume you will be going to a range to practice with your firearm. Instead of buying cheap foam inserts, invest in good hearing protection which could mean electronic ear muffs or custom-fitted earplugs.

    Not all eye protection is made the same either. Your sunglasses are most likely not ballistic rated which means they won’t protect you from small projectiles and fragments. When purchasing eye protection, be sure you buy eyewear that wraps along the side of your eye as well.

    Prescription glasses technically qualify in a pinch but for continued practice with your firearm invest in a pair of prescription safety glasses. Your eyes & ears will appreciate it later.

    Proper shooting clothing includes closed-toe shoes, and a shirt with a closure around the neck. Long sleeves and a hat are suggested but not required.

    I would highly recommend wearing clothing that you plan to wear regularly and carry concealed in. This class will give you the opportunity to get a feel for what real life will be like.

    Dress appropriately for climate and discover if you’ll be at an indoor or outdoor range for the shooting portion by looking at the class info, or contacting us on here.

    Do not bring a firearm or live ammunition to the class on Day 1. On Day 2 please bring your pistol and 50 rounds of ammunition.
    Both your firearm and ammunition will be checked in by an Instructor upon entering the class. The firearm should be unloaded and in a case and should be stored seperately from the ammunition.
    The reason for this is to alleviate any potenional mix up of dummy rounds and live rounds. It’s best to leave your firearm and ammunition in the car or your range bag and only bring it to the range portion of the class.

    Participants may bring an IL State Issued photo ID (Drivers License) or FOID Card.

    Please remember it must be a valid ID, if it is expired or has an extension due to Covid-19 we can only recognize the expiration date on your ID/FOID.

    If you need special recognition due to a COVID-19 extention a review can be made on a case by case basis by contacting us on here.

    There will be a lot of information covered and required to retain. Taking notes, jotting down reminders, and tracking any questions or helpful information are encouraged.

    If at any point you need further information or need items repeated we want you to let us know. Our goal is to help you understand and retain the information given during the class, not just make you sit for 16 Hours. That helps no one achieve their CCL requirements or continue as a responsible firearms owner.

    Concealed carry classes can get long. When they’re taught year-round, you might find yourself in extreme weather conditions (hot/cold). Be sure to pack yourself snacks, possibly lunch, lots of water, and sunscreen (if you’re at an outdoor range).

    You will have a short break to eat but it is time sensitive so if you plan to leave to get it somewhere be back in time to continue with the rest of the participants.

  • *Note: ANY unsafe actions will be cause for immediate disqualification from class. NO refunds. ANY demonstrations verbally or physically of poor character will be cause for immediate disqualification from class. NO refunds. You must pass the shooting qualification in the scoring area of the target. You will be given 2 chances to qualify. If you do not pass, NO refunds.
