Course Information

  • No live ammunition is allowed in the classroom, but guns may be brought inside if you do not wish to leave them in your car.
  • Advise the Chief Instructor asap if you will not be bringing your own firearm. (Guns are available for your use at no charge if you do not have one, we just ask you to pay $5 for ammunition).
  • If possible, please pre-load your magazines with 10 rounds of ammunition. You will need a total of forty rounds to shoot (four magazines are NOT required if you do not have them).
  • Please bring hearing and eye protection. Eye protection can be in the form of prescription glasses, as side panels are not required.


The Atlanta, Illinois location is a great place for your Illinois Concealed Carry Class, as it is convenient to Bloomington Normal and McLean County.  Even if you are outside of Bloomington Normal and live in Chenoa, Lexington, El Paso, Barnes or LeRoy, the best Illinois CCW class option for you is just outside of McLean County, in the northeast corner of Logan county, in Atlanta.  If you live in a Logan County town, such as Lincoln, Illinois, Mt. Pulaski or  Broadwell, this is clearly the optimal location for you to take your Illinois CCW class. For those living in DeWitt County areas around Farmer City, Wapella or Clinton, this is also a great Illinois License to Carry Class location. If you live in Sangamon County and are looking for an Illinois Concealed Carry Class, you won’t mind the drive to Atlanta if you live in Springfield, Virden, Jacksonville, Chatham, Auburn or Leland Grove because you know that you will get the best possible CCW training for your Illinois License. Woodford County residents will also appreciate the finest CCW training in Central Illinois, whether they hail from El Paso, Roanoke, Minonk, Eureka or Metamora.
