LOVES PARK- If you're considering getting a concealed carry license you might want to do some homework before you enroll for training.
If you're considering getting a concealed carry license you might want to do some homework before you enroll for training. Hundreds of Illinois applicants have been denied a concealed carry license because they didn't receive the proper training from a firearms instructor. One Loves Park instructor says there are some things you need to do before you dedicate your time and money.
"Look at the criteria of the state of Illinois and then just ask the instructors questions. There's instructors out there that I've heard in other states that have a good reputation. They may be excellent shooters but they're not good teachers," said Howard Dean, concealed carry Instructor.
You can find a list of revoked instructors by visiting the Illinois State Police website.
