As the Illinois State Police get ready to begin issuing concealed weapons permits, they're letting residents know more about the requirements of the Illinois Firearm Concealed Carry Act.
Concealed carry license applicants must successfully complete 16 hours of firearms training, including classroom and range instruction. So the ISP website now includes a list of approved concealed carry firearms training curricula. The website also provides an updated list of qualified instructors.
Concealed carry license applications will be available by January 5, 2014.
More information can be found at the ISP's firearms ccw website.
