Illinois Concealed Carry Courses

firearms and concealed carry training

Your Firearm Mentor

In 2014, Illinois began issuing concealed carry permits to qualified individuals who participate a 16-hour course, approved by the Illinois State Police.

Our training is different.  We will come to you and teach in your home or place of business for 12 hours of classroom training.  4 hours of range time will be scheduled on an individual or group basis.

The Morris Method

The state compliant training is based upon generations of instruction within our primary trainer's family.

Morris Ehrenberg was a Secret Service Agent during World War I, and participated in investigation of persons accused of being Communists during the "Red Scare."  He passed on his firearms training to his grandson, Larry, who passed on these methods to his son, Marcus, our primary trainer, in 1980.  Since then, Marcus has worked in Law Enforcement and Security, and has added modern safety tactics to the foundation that Agent Ehrenberg laid. 

We call this "The Morris Method."

What sets us apart?


Our classes are interactive and participatory.  The primary instructor has taught in various settings with various topics and is an adult education expert.  

Once you take a class from us, we have a relationship for life.  Whether you have a question on firearms, the laws, concealed carry or training, we are just an email away.

And...we return phone calls.  We hear that not all companies don't, once you complete their training.
