Range Fees & Operations

     Course tuition does not include range fee and ammunition costs. Purchase ammunition for your handgun before you attend class, and expect to fire 50 rounds. After completing the classroom section of the course at the academy, students will drive to a nearby suburban range to complete the live-fire section of this course. Range fees are $ 25.00  and ammo is around $20 per student. This expense is separate from the tuition of the course and students pay separately for this associated cost.

     Upon completion of the classroom portion of the course, students will travel to a designated range in the north/western suburbs (determined by date of the class) for the live-fire portion of the course.

     Students must provide their own transportation to and from the range facility. The range facility is a public range, and other shooters will also be using the range.

     Instructors will inspect your firearm for proper function and maintenance. No student will be allowed to use any firearm deemed unsafe by an instructor, range officer or armorer. Firearms will be available for use for students who do not bring their own. An additional fee will be charged.

     It is important that the student listen carefully to the instructions given by the instructor(s) and range safety officers. Any individual that engages in unsafe behavior or refuses to listen to the staff instructor(s) will immediately be ejected from the range and the course.  No refund will be issued.

I Have A Chicago Firearm Permit. How Will This Concealed Carry Law Affect That?

    The “Firearm Concealed Carry Act”, once signed into law, will eliminate all city and county handgun ordinances and laws. Laws affecting handgun types, handgun magazines, handgun ammunition and all regulation, licensing, ownership and such regarding handguns at the local level, will be eliminated. This only affects handguns and NOT shotguns or rifles.

What Are The Qualifications For A License?

   The Department shall issue a license to an applicant completing an application in accordance with Section 30 of this Act if the person:

(1) Is at least 21 years of age;

(2) Has a currently valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card and at the time of application meets the requirements for the issuance of a Firearm Owner's Identification Card and is not prohibited under the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act or federal law from possessing or receiving a firearm;

(A) a misdemeanor involving the use or threat of physical force or violence to any person within the 5 years preceding the date of the license application; or

(6) Has completed firearms training and any education component required under Section 75 of this Act.

Will Our CCW Permit Have Reciprocity or Recognition?

    Illinois CCW Permit holders will not have reciprocity with any other states until and unless our Attorney General enters into such written agreements. That may be a year or more in our future.

    Recognition of the Illinois CCW Permit by other states is based upon the state that is extending it.  Illinois CCW Permit holders will be able to carry in other states that have such a law on their books which generally recognizes any lawfully issued concealed carry permit from any other state.
