It is better to have a gun and not need it, then it is, to need a gun and not have it.

It is always better to avoid a violent situation, than it is to participate in one.


We specialize in training women. Even women that have never touched a gun before.  So that they are not only confident in handling a gun to defend themselves, and their loved ones, but are confident that they can do it safely.

“ My Wife noted that being able to handle a firearm gave her a real confidence boost.  When she learned how to shoot properly, she not only learned that she could handle a gun, but also that she could handle herself .  “

We train all our men, & women students in how to actually use their Concealed Carry Weapons in a life and death situation ! To view a real life tragic story of a woman, that had her Concealed Carry License, but was never actually trained in how to use her weapon - CLICK HERE ! (this just as easily could have happened to a man)

Now that you have read the above real life story, let me tell you that our training goes well beyond how to clear your jammed weapon, and real life combat scenarios. Our training teaches you everything you will need to survive a real life, and death fight !

We have a training system for you that is totally complete. It starts in our classrooms, then goes to our ranges, and finishes with providing you the training techniques, and the training equipment to train you, right in your own home !

We offer to the public, two separate levels of Handgun Training:

Our first level of handgun training, is for students to gain the knowledge, and expertise, to get their Illinois, and Florida Concealed Carry Licenses.

Our Second level of handgun training, is for students who already have their Concealed Carry License, but wish to become proficient in drawing their concealed carry handgun from their concealed carry holster, kept under their clothing.  This level of handgun training we call, “The Next Level”.

Next Level handgun training consists of advanced, and expert level combat tactics, as well as gun handling, that makes the holster drawing of a concealed carry handgun as automatic, and natural as breathing. So that the Good Shooter, becomes a Great Shooter, through Advanced Combat Training of our Next Level shooting range, and practice in the Next Level shooting techniques in the student’s own home. Our students that take our “The Next Level” training sessions, start with people that have just received their concealed carry licenses, and wish to become more confident and self assured in carrying a concealed carry handgun. All the way to students that have private, city, county, state, and federal law enforcement experience, and wish to further expand their expertise.  As well as, to quicken, and sharpen their combat reaction skills.

Below, we are introducing to the student our Illinois and Florida Concealed Carry License classes, which is our first level of "The Next Level" handgun training we offer.



What do you get, when you train with us?

Our Competitors have class sizes of 20, 30 or more. Which means you receive little if any, one on one training from the class instructor.
Our class sizes are 10 students max. And with that class size our instructors now have 50% more time to help each student fully understand the class.

Our competitors' instructors lecture their students for 16 hours, while providing their students with near ZERO practical hands on training. After sitting in our competitors classroom for 8 straight hours, your brain will be ready to explode, because your brain will not be able to remember, retain, or absorb anything else after sitting in a class for more than four hours. That is why we break all our classes into 4 hour segments, because then our students, have the chance to more fully absorb the class material, and then have at least a one day break before their next 4 hour class.

Here is an email we received from one of our past students:


I received my Illinois Concealed Carry license thanks to you.
I learned so much taking your class, all your special knowledge, and expertise will not be forgotten. Also you have made the process quick and painless.
You are a professional and very thorough.
Thank you again sincerely your student
