                 Illinois Concealed Carry Course Info

Your course on personal protection was absolutely beyond my wildest dreams of what I expected in that type of class. Your professionalism, knowledge and experience really create a perfect combination for a great experience. I can't imagine that there are many gun owners out there that would not benefit from your courses. Keep up the good work.

   If you are a law-abiding U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old, and are serious about learning to use a handgun for personal protection, you are on the right page! My name is Jim Trockman, and I am an NRA Certified Handgun Instructor, NRA Certified Personal Protection Inside The Home Instructor, NRA Certified Refuse To Be A Victim Instructor, NRA Membership Recruiter, Armed Citizens' Legal Defense Network Recruiter, International Defensive Pistol Association Member, Competitor, and Certified Range Safety Officer... 

Teaching adults practical defensive solutions using handguns requires specialized skills and experience, and is my primary focus. 
If you have never shot before, or have a desire to overcome a fear of guns, I can definitely help! All of my clients receive private, strictly confidential, professional instruction...your name or photo will never appear on my website, facebook, or twitter...if you are wondering why this matters, then you should enroll in my course, and find out!...Why you choose to own or carry a handgun is your business - teaching you how to use it responsibly is my business. Otherwise, its nobody's business... 

The best info on my courses comes from my (please click here now) students!

During my course, emphasis will be on understanding how your behavior, when faced with a potentially lethal encounter, can affect the safety of others as well as yourself...I absolutely guarantee you'll learn a tremendous amount about personal protection, be proud of the way you shoot, and have a ton of fun as well! Further, y
ou won't need to have any permits, own a gun, bring your own ammo, or wait six months for a group lesson...

Anyone can memorize a list of safety rules. In my class, you will learn how to apply them...My lesson plans include photos, videos, and other i
nternet resources. Studying real-life scenarios will help you to visualize when you might need to depend on a handgun for the survival of yourself and/or your family. If you are ever forced to shoot an individual who has crossed your pre-determined boundary of personal safety, and lethal force is required, are you prepared for what comes next? Who do you call? What do you say? What shouldn't you say? When you draw your gun, and pull that trigger, your life will change forever... That said: would you be surprised to learn that the conventional wisdom regarding handgun safety and personal protection is almost always wrong? First example: upon hearing the proverbial sound of breaking glass in the middle of the night, what's the first thing you do? Call 911? Second example: everyone knows that if a person with a gun or knife is 21 feet away from you or less, they are a lethal threat, and its legal to shoot, right? Third example: that makes 21 feet the ideal distance to practice, right? WRONG, WRONG, AND WRONG! No other handgun courses offer unique online resources, expert instruction, can be completed in one day or less, and guarantees that you will be taught shooting skills correctly!

Learning how to properly stand, grip, aim, manage a trigger, handle recoil, breathe, and follow-through to the next shot, are just a few of the fundamentals you'll learn in my classes. Knowing how to grip a handgun properly before making a purchase from a reputable dealer is essential...what is choosing a gun that 'feels the best' in your hand worth, if you later find out it was being held incorrectly?   

My course is not the proverbial 'walk in the park'. You will have fun, but be ready to work hard...there is a lot to learn before becoming a truly responsible gun owner. To be well-prepared, you will need a good night's sleep, a positive and safety-conscious attitude, appropriate clothing based on weather predictions, sturdy shoes, a baseball-type hat to reduce glare, drinks, a sack lunch if desired, and a few snacks...If you already own a handgun, bring it unloaded in a case or its original box, including instruction manuals, at least 50 rounds of target ammo and 20 rounds of defensive grade ammo. Its essential that the ammo you have purchased be compatible with the gun you have purchased! I will provide literally EVERYTHING else including ammo for all of my guns, electronic hearing and eye protection, and several guns featuring the latest in laser training technology. Not only will you be taught safely  and correctly, but quickly and efficiently as well...

 Without taking my class, where you are able to test a variety of guns in advance, odds are that you won't select the right gun for yourself or its intended purpose. Why buy an unreliable handgun, waste money on expensive and hard to find ammo, commit incorrect behavior to muscle memory, and still not be able to shoot with defensive accuracy?                   
Before class begins, you will be required to pay in advance by cash or check. You will also be required to sign a release of liability form the same as you must do before shooting at any public range.

Please call in person or email for more detailed information. Thanks for your interest in my classes!
