Maxon’s 16 hour Illinois concealed carry course satisfies the Illinois state requirement to apply for your Illinois concealed carry permit. The first 8 hours covers basics of firearm safety, operations, transportation and maintenance. The second 8 hour segment covers IL law with regard to concealed carry and gives in-depth information regarding the use of deadly force, violent encounters, and the aftermath. The second 8 hour segment will also go into detail on how and where you can carry/transport your firearm after you receive your concealed carry permit.
A pistol familiarization will take place at the end of the first 8 hour class, you may practice with your own firearm or use one of ours, the firearm and ammo used on the first 8 hours will be included with the cost of the class.
