I had a class scheduled for my renewal but the instructor had to cancel and doesnt have anything open for the foreseeable future unless I want to drive an hour. I just need the renewal portion. The class was $75,including the range. Any suggestions?

Stop by Mega Sports

NOT hosted by Mega or run by Mega

 

Cant remember the exact name, but its run by Dave Phistry

Conceal Carry something something.....

 

39.00 if i remember correctly You pay for range and ammo

buy a box of ammo 10.00 or more and get range for 15.00

Here's MegaSports link to Dave Phistry: http://megasportsfir.../sample-article

Dave is a good guy and a very good instructor.  I recommend him if he's in your area.

Seems like Mega renewals are going to run closer to a $100

http://megasportsfir.../sample-article

We recommend Dave Phistry at Conceal Carry Plus, he is NRA certified and a true encyclopedia of firearms knowledge and history. Illinois CCW class is $99 and Renewals are $69 (both do not include range fees).

Wow on the 99.00 costs!

I left Mega about 3 to 4 months ago and Dave had/has signs in the store for 39.00!

 

Not small signs but huge 4 ft by 8 ft signs hanging from above the range counter.

He was doing the full 16 hours for 99.00.

 

He is a super instructor and very patient guy with new and experienced shooters alike.

Sorry for the incorrect info if I've made a mistake.

 

please call him first as he has NO control over their web site @ Mega

Could be an error.

While a 9 mm or .40 caliber bullet may or may not expand, it is an undeniable fact that a .45 caliber bullet will never shrink.
