Comment: Our instructor, Charlie Thalman, brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to his classroom presentations. If you're looking for a small (there were three participants in my class) informal, CCW training, this is way to go. You'll leave with a greater understanding of IL gun laws necessary for CCW licensing. Charlie also made certain that each of us were confident in breaking down and assembling our respective handguns. If you want an IL CCW license, take this course!
