WELCOME TO ON-TARGET CCW                    

Q:  I have a CCW from Florida, Utah or Maine.  Can I legally carry in Illinois with these.


A: No Illinois residents MUST have a valid F.O.I.D. Card and an Illinois CCW to legally carry in their home state.

Q: I've never shot a gun; can I still carry a concealed weapon?

A: YES...but your CCW permit is only the beginning of your journey towards personal protection and firearm safety. Everyone is encouraged to pursue more training, advanced classes and extensive live fire practice. Obtaining a CCW permit entitles you to carry a firearm for personal protection, oddly the process has more to do with the laws relating to self defense than anything else. If you don't know what the law is you can end up in serious trouble.

Q: I'm concerned about passing the Illinois Live Fire test, how

A: Don't worry, you'll do fine, and if you don't pass guess what....you'll simply do it again till you do pass. Its no big deal, only 30 rounds.

Q: What CCW's are available?

A: Illinois residents MUST obtain an Illinois CCW to carry legal in their home state.  Unfortunately the Illinois CCW has limited recognition with other states.  That's why we include (at no charge) the Florida Non-Resident CCW with the Illinois class.  With both the Illinois & Florida CCW's you're legal in 30+ states. Missouri residents are lucky, because Missouri recognizes

any CCW from any issuing state including the Florida or Maine non-resident CCW's which are easier to get.
