Illinois Concealed Carry Class

September 25, 2016 the 701 Social Club will be presenting Illinois Concealed Carry Classes for our Union members, their family and friends.

The classroom portion will be held at the Local 701 Union Hall in Carol Steam.  Qualifying will be conducted at Gat Guns in East Dundee.

Class starts at 9 a.m. sharp.  Class size is limited and will fill quickly.  This class will be filled on a first come first served basis and needs to be paid in full in order to reserve your spot.

In order to apply for a State of Illinois Concealed Carry permit, you must complete 16 hours of training and qualify with a firearm.  This is the 8 hour State mandated class which includes qualifying with your hand gun.

  • You will need a valid FOID card. 
  • In order to qualify you will need.
  • your own firearm & holster
  • eye and ear protection
  • 100 rounds of ammunition

The gun that you qualify with is not necessarily the one that you have to carry; the permit covers you, not the gun.

The cost of the 8 hour state mandated class is $150.00; which includes classroom training, range qualifying and a certificate of completion.  Click HERE for a registration form.
