8 AM to 5 PM

American Legion Hall – Franklin Park, IL

9757 Pacific Ave, Franklin Park, IL 60131

*** If you are a veteran, the second class, (March 6, 2021) is all that is required by law, as you have an exemption for the first class, which covers basic firearms safety, gun handling and marksmanship.  However, it is recommended that all take this class as a refresher.

You do NOT need a gun or a FOID card to take this class.  You can use one of our guns and the FOID card can be applied for along with your Concealed Carry License after you complete the class!

*THERE IS A $20 RANGE FEE FOR THE SECOND CLASS, TO BE PAID THE DAY OF CLASS.

  • Course deposit is non-refundable, but with 72 hour notice, can be applied toward a future class.
  • FOID card is NOT required to take the class (that can be applied for at the same time as you apply for your Concealed Carry License).
  • If you do not have a gun to use for the shooting qualification, one can be provided for you for a $5 ammunition charge.
  • Please do not bring you gun into the American Legion Post, as it is a “prohibited area” due to the bar there. The shooting qualification will take place at the end of the second eight-hour class.
  • The State of Illinois also charges $150 for the five year license, which is paid directly to the State when you apply.
  • Fingerprints are NOT required to apply for a license.
