Does anyone have a firearms trainer that
they would recommend for senior citizen women? My mother just applied for a FOID card and will be applying for her CCL. She has zero experience with firearms and needs instruction. She is wanting to take classes not only for CCL but also for general firearm handling and safety. She is on the North side of Chicago and does not want to travel to far.

Tom's local to her I think.

 

I've not taken classes with him, but I've had opportunity to converse with him and he's helpful and patient. Maybe give him a ring and have a chat.

Ive heard nothing but good things about T D Roe who teaches through the Excel training group.

Shes a great teacher and an experienced shooter.

She also teaches a Womens Intro To Handguns course.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

I could be wrong but recall reading they no longer do CCL classes.

 I teach First Shot every other Weds Evenings.  Small classes, a lot of Seniors in the class, a lot of Women.  I go slow so every one understands what is being said.

 

The class is limited to no more then 4 people.  She would shoot .22 cal and 9mm if she wants,

 

I work at Midwest Guns in Lyons
