Illinois Concealed Carry classes and outdoor shooting in the winter months

Posted by:

Allccw.com; Yesterday, December 8th was our first range qualification while it was snowing! It was a balmy 22 degrees as we began our qualification, with a few flakes coming down but not anything serious. The shooting portion was under cover but for those standing back a ways waiting their turn, they were catching a bit of it. As usual, we tried to get everyone through as quickly as possible, but Mr. Murphy stepped in and his law definitely applied! Trying ...

Our first cold weather class

Posted by:

This past weekend 11/23-24 at the Newark Sportsmen’s Club sure was a cold one! Saturday’s class went by the numbers, but I’m sure we had some worried students thinking about the cold and the next day’s range qualification! Day 2 on Sunday started out as normal with a very heavy dose of Illinois law before we moved out to the range. Was it cold? Yes it was! This week’s students were up to the challenge and we had a great time at the ...

Today’s Storm

Posted by:

As all of you probably realize by now, we had an especially bad storm move through the area today. This weekend’s class was at the range while the storm went through Diamond IL with what looks to have been a tornado touching down probably 1/4 mile from our classroom. Upon getting back to town and discovering what had happened, we immediately cancelled the remainder of our class and told our students as we talked to them that we would reschedule ...

The ISP still isn’t budging, call your State Rep!

Posted by:

An update on my “RANT” from Oct 31 concerning the debacle being caused by the ISP over training credit for other State’s CCW Licenses as part of the state required 16 hours of training for your IL CCW license.

I received another call from the ISP to update me on their idiotic policy. For some reason they felt the need to call me again to tell me they haven’t changed their policy.

I reminded the nice lady that the law states in ...

RANT #1, ISP bureaucracy at work

Posted by:

My RANT for the day (it’s a long one) – The latest debacle from the ISP is the re-enforcement on their part that if you have a prior training credit for CCW from another state, the card itself is not proof enough, they say you must submit the actual certificate you received from the instructor for taking the class. Hmmmmm you say….Utah didn’t award me a certificate, I filled out a form in class, the Instructor stamped it with his/her ...

Afterthoughts

Posted by:

So, two classes down and we still haven’t taken any pictures! After the first class, I thought “should have taken pics, we’ll do it next time. Well the next class has come and gone and guess what? we did it again, no pics! Any volunteers out there to be our official photographer? I believe our 2nd class was just as good if not better than the first, great bunch of people again! LOL and as soon as I got home I started ...

Successful completion of our first IL CCW class! Gearing up for this first class was a little stressful, in getting the materials, presentation, targets, equipment together you can’t help but wonder if you forgot something.
