Welcome to Total CCW, Ltd.
Your Personal Protection is our #1 Priority!
Congratulations to all the citizen of Illinois, we now join the rest of the U.S.A. with Concealed Carry!
Everyone at Total CCW realizes that exercising your right to possess/carry a firearm comes with a cost and expectation of responsibility. Firearm knowledge, safety and personal defense are absolutely essential, so that you obtain and then maintain the proper mindset, skills and abilities that come with “bearing arms” for the purpose of self-defense. Proper training is therefore every armed citizen’s individual responsibility. You owe this not only to yourself, but your family, friends and everyone else you come in contact with each and every day.
With the state of Illinois passing bill HB183 to become a concealed carry state, we are preparing all of our means and methods to meet those needs and demands. We offer the best possible CCW and firearm safety training by only Certified NRA Instructors. Hopefully the time never comes when you are put in a situation and have to protect yourself, but if it does, give yourself the peace of mind to know that you were trained by the best!
What We Offer
To teach the basic knowledge, skills and attitude necessary for owning, concealing and using a pistol safely and legally by NRA Certified Instructors.
- Pistol knowledge, safe gun handling and lawful concealment
- Ammunition knowledge
- Stance, grip and breathing
- Skills relating to controlling the handgun while shooting
- How to clean and care for guns
- Sight alignment and trigger control
- Current laws in regard to the use of force and self defense as well as transportation and concealment
Owning a handgun is NOT a requirement for taking the class. Various revolvers and semi-automatics will be available for you to examine. You may bring a handgun and 50 rounds of brass cased ammunition for the range, but neither will be allowed in the classroom. If you don't own a handgun, we will provide a 22 caliber handgun and ammunition, for an additional charge.
We are excited to offer pre-registration for upcoming CCW classes
The state of Illinois is expecting over 400,000 applications for CCW permits in the first year alone. Estimates are that the wait for classes could be 6 months or more, with the shooting part of the certification having a much greater lead time. DO NOT WAIT, PRE-REGISTER NOW! All classes will be filled on a first come first serve basis.
