Illinois Concealed Carry License/Weapon (CCL/CCW) Courses


The Illinois State Police (ISP) requires 16 hours of training to qualify for the Illinois CCL/CCW permit. In addition, the ISP requires that students complete a live-fire range qualification (discharging 30 rounds minimum at 5, 7 & 10 yards at a B27 target with 70% accuracy).

We do the range portion at GAT GUNS in East Dundee. Furthermore, the applicant can purchase optional “live-scan” fingerprinting services to expedite and assure correct background check process completion – in order to qualify for the Illinois CCL/CCW. An applicant can opt-out of the live-scan fingerprinting and submit his/her Illinois CCL/CCW application without – but this will automatically cause a delay in CCL/CCW permit approval and can, if the background check cannot be completed without fingerprints, delay the CCL/CCW application process (you could be asked to submit fingerprints).

We are willing to hold classes on any weekend with 4 students minimum
