Str8 Shot Gun Safety encourages EVERYONE interested in Firearm/CCL Instruction to research before they commit!  There are many different types of training and many different prices.    Ask questions of your contact person such as; 

  • How much is the cost of training?
  • How much shooting will I do?
  • Where will I be shooting?
  • Do I need my own handgun, ammo and equipment?
  • How many will be in class?
  • What is Instructor/student ratio?
  • Do I pay additional for range, ammo and handgun/equipment rental?
  • Will you complete my on line CCL application?  Is there a charge?

Ask yourself; 

  • What am I looking for?
  • Am I an avid shooter, beginner or in- between? 
  • Do I want a piece of paper or hands on training? 
  • Am I going to complete training and feel competent shooting?

Str8 Shot will give you Hands-On training that will continue or end with your conceal carry permit.  Along with your Illinois requirements we go the extra step for you to receive your NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting Certificate.  This certificate never expires, follows you to any state and is the foundation for NRA pistol safety training. Our Instructors are ALL NRA certified and we practice it!  Our instructors are available for continued practice at our range and any other firearm concerns you may have.
