You have taken the Illinois Concealed Carry or the Armed Security Training class. Outstanding!!! That class is an introduction. No matter where you took it and who taught it (including us), it is not enough. For those who want more, M.O.R.E. is here! Get ready to sweat. This set of classes will be indoor, outdoor and virtual classroom and range-based. M.O.R.E scenarios. M.O.R.E range time. M.O.R.E education. Over and over. Over and over. Over and over. Over and over.


The M.O.R.E. (More Open Repetitive Education) Personal Defense Courses are what you need to feel more confident in handling yourself in a deadly situation. We have a large list of classes in this program. However, there are three mandatory Firearms Handling Confidence courses that MUST be completed before attending any additional M.O.R.E courses. 

Course Description: The Firearms Handling Confidence courses will help you become very familiar and confident with handguns and your handgun. Between magazine handing, loading, firearm handling, malfunctions clearing, and more, you will walk away from this set of courses with the knowledge needed to show confidence with the safe and efficient handling of your firearm. Don't have a firearm? That's okay! You don't need to have your own firearm. We will allow you to use our firearm. However, the goal is to help you develop confidence with your chosen firearm at some point. 

This is a Small Group learning. 1 instructor per 12 students.

What makes us THE place to go to for your Concealed Carry and/or Armed Security Additional Training? Safety. Sweat. Guts. Challenge. Mindset. Conflict Avoidance. Humility. No Excuses. Be-Know-Do.

Be advised: If you want some cupcake, soft, touch-your-back, feelings-centered, ego-massaged, "teach you in your comfort zone" gun course, this isn't for you. In fact, GUNS aren't for you. We are NOT like those looking to take your money without telling you the reality of gun ownership and usage. They will not be with you in a gun fight. You will. You MUST survive. What you learn here is UNMATCHED. What you learn here is LIFE-CHANGING. You will feel like you've CHEATED US out of money for the knowledge you will gained. It'll be the BEST money you've spent on initial firearms training.


Our Military Veteran / Law Enforcement Instructors are certified by the Illinois State Police, the USCCA, and other law enforcement training accredidation bodies. Your training. Your safety. Your life. Our business. Now, let's get down to it.
