Our Mission

Your Premier Source for Concealed Firearms Training in Central Illinois

CIFTG is a group of professional firearms instructors with the knowledge and experience needed to teach everyone from the novice to the experienced.  We have over 60 years of combined firearms instruction, legal knowledge and street experience to impart that knowledge to those interested in obtaining their Concealed Carry license.

Please compare us with other groups/instructors before signing up for a class.  Not only are our prices very competitive, but we have all been carrying concealed for more than 30 years and we have the experience and knowledge to answer all of your "what if" questions.  There are instructors that have no real life experience, and have no tested knowledge of the law, and your rights and obligations under the law.  We know the law, we know firearms, and we know how to teach you what you need to know.

Professional, Experienced, and Knowledgeable...WE ARE exactly what you need.

Course Overview

In this course our goal is to give our students professional guided training in a safe and professional manner to allow them to receive their Illinois Concealed Firearms Permit (CCW Permit). It is designed to satisfy the requirements by Illinois State Law to obtain a Concealed Carry Permit.

The course consists of both classroom work and range work. Students will be required to successfully complete the course and pass a practical range proficiency test. Students must read, write and understand English and be able to follow all of the directions given by the training staff.
