Since 2013, Alpha Koncepts has been offering students Illinois Concealed Carry training classes. As one of the first approved instructors in Illinois, very few people have been doing it longer! Thomas Kral, the Chief Firearm Instructor, is the 45th approved instructor in Illinois and 13th in Cook County. In addition, Thomas Kral is Managing Editor of the internet blog www.GunRights4Illinois.com and keeps in-tune with the current events related to your gun rights in Illinois. His passion is unparalleled.
The typical student will require 16 hours of training before they may apply for their Illinois Concealed Carry license. However, some students may receive up to 8 hours of credit for prior training, as allowed by the Illinois State Police. People eligible for the 8-hour credit include armed forces veterans, but must demonstrate proficiency with pistols.
Our class is perfect for those with limited experience. Our specialty is working with new gun owners!
