How to Choose a Concealed Carry Firearm Instructor | Naperville, IL - Law Weapons






01. How long have you been a firearms instructor ?

     BEWARE of the fellow who JUST recently got his credentials to teach.

     He's just "cashing in" on the IL Concealed Firearms License frenzy.



02. Is your "instructor" ONLY certified by the NRA to teach BASIC PISTOL ?

     If the "instructor" is only certified to teach basic pistol classes it means

     that he does not have any real commitment to firearms training and is

     just trying to make a "fast buck".



03. When you are not teaching firearms classes how do you make your living?

     This will shock you but many "instructors" are week-end warriors. Their real job

     is pizza delivery guy, truck driver, package delivery agents or even religious

     leaders !!! Don't believe me ? Just ASK THEM !!!!



04. Have you ever declared bankruptcy ?

     BEWARE of the instructor who ripped off his creditors as he will

     most certainly rip you off too !!!



05. Were you ever in business before this & what happened to that business?

     Many "instructors" have had many "fly by night" business that popped up

     and disappeared as soon as the going got rough.



06. Do you have an actual classroom or do you just rent hotel rooms for classes?

     Most instructors do not have an actual classroom or official place of

     business !!! They work from their home and rent hotel rooms as needed. So

     when there's a problem with your permit they are nowhere to be found !!!



07. Do you have any references from past students ? How many students have you tought?

     No positive references means no real past teaching experience. Do you really

     want to learn life saving firearms handling from a guy with no real "hands on"

     teaching experience or has only trained a few dozen students?



08. Have you only trained civilian students ?

     If they have only trained civilian students they cannot have the knowledge or

     experience that Law Enforcement, Licensed Private, Bodyguards

     Detectives and Professional Armed Security Agents are taught. They have no experience

     teaching the use of deadly force.



09. Are you qualified and licensed to teach Armed Professionals ?

     Not likely, because to do so you must have years of experience, be a dedicated

     firearms professional and participate in annual firearms instructor continuing

     education and development.



10. What was the last course you (the "instructor") took as a student ?

     Most likely the last class they attended was his "ONLY" instructor level class.
