Concealed Carry Training and the most inclusive curriculum for Concealed Carry Training in Central Illinois. Training here is conducted at the level of Off Duty Police Training. We are the only school in the area that are staffed with Police Firearms Instructors and True Use of Force Instructors. Don't be fooled by the former cop story of how much they know because they "used to be a cop" for a short time. Use of Force Instructors go way beyond the "used to be a cop" mentality. We are all Ranking Supervisors and Policy writers that rely on Use of Force Case Law and detailed research of the topic.

Guns for trade on a vehicle if anyone has one that could
be a blessing to another. It does not have to look great,

Concealed Carry Classes are now set with more constant
Monday 8am-4pm Day 1
Tuesday 8am-4pm Day 2
Saturday tentative 1pm-9pm after the ranges
Sunday 11am-7pm till after the 10th of Nov. then it will be 8am-4pm
We will be also teaching a 16 hour class over 2 weeks it will be Monday and Tuesday 5:30pm-9:30PM one week will be Day 1 and the second week will be Day 2.
So what makes our classes different here? The answer is simple. We are all current active Law Enforcement Professionals and Law Enforcement Trainers. We do not teach by the seat of our pants. The level of Education here revolves around the following laws. Statute, Conservation, Case Law, and Civil Law. We are all Use of Force Instructors for our respective agencies and teach that the activity of carrying a firearm is no different in skills than off duty Police Officers. The only thing that changes is the rules. We will teach you the best defenses against Civil Attorneys who will try to sue you for Use of Force as we teach our Police Clients. We will not teach you to break the law in any way shape of form like others. We will also teach you common defenses and techniques to carry your sidearm from the perspective of the Police Investigation side of things.
One thing we always teach here is be careful of where you get your information from. Just because they were a Police Officer for a while, that does not mean that they have the knowledge or capacity to teach Use of Force Laws and defense.
Its Official for Concealed Carry. We got our Unique training number today. Please call 217-578-3702 for reservations. We have numerous class days and times. Be sure to check out our website for Information. We have a good page summarizing how to pick your instructors. Our Instructors are the some of the most highly qualified instructors in the area. Our curriculum is an original curriculum based on stress research, Law, the most comprehensive hands on you will find, and some of the same training you would get if you were a Law Enforcement Professional. This is not a "cookie cutter" class that has been "Borrowed" from other Organizations like the other basic schools and classes, it is designed from multiple disciplines of shooting, tactics, safety, combat styles, and concepts that you would not even think of if you did not teach these classes for a living. Remember, if you are going to take a class on how to carry a gun, you should take it from Instructors that carry a gun for a living. Our Instructors have over 50 years combined training experience as Instructors in Firearms, not just a couple of years working working as Police Officers. Please feel free to see the Instructor Bio's on the website www.atwoodguns.com and our facebook www.facebook.com/atwoodguns
It is official, we are now approved instructors through ISP. Stay tuned for further posts with schedules and requirements. We still have to wait to get our Unique training number and forms, but will keep everyone updated as we progress. Thanks to all of our customers who have been supporting us. Be sure to share this post with all of your friends so that we can get this rolling and everyone can get the best class that the area has to offer.
