I give the Concealed Carry of Illinois course a solid 5 stars. Our instructor Brian was incredibly knowledgeable and taught the class in manner that was very interactive and not boring (I expected the class to be very boring). If you plan on getting your concealed carry permit I would 10/10 recommend this course with Brian as the instructor.
Brian was absolutely fantastic. Learned tons about safely carrying and practical information for gun owners - new or experienced - about how and when to use your weapon. Brian's course was recommended by several friends, and I will surely recommend Brian to several others.
Had a fantastic time with Brian our Instucter. Unbelievable teacher and I would highly recommend him to anybody.
Brian was a great instructor and I highly recommend his course to anyone wanting to conceal & carry.
Brian is great! He's knowledgeable, patient, and very hands on. I learned a lot and highly recommend the class and him as an instructor!
I took the CC class a few weeks back with Brian and it really was an enjoyable and educational experience. I came into the class with a good knowledge of firearms and pistol shooting but left with even a greater knowledge. I was concerned that 16 hours on the weekend was going to be tough but Brian's knowledge and passion of firearms had me engaged throughout, the time really flew by. He was very thorough and moved through all of the topics in great detail. No question was a dumb question. If you are considering a CC Permit then I would strongly recommend Brian. If you are only looking for a firearms safety class then this program will work too. I have already recommended Brian to my friends and family. 5 STAR EXPERIENCE!!!!!
I completed CC training today, instructor Brian Kossof, did a GREAT JOB, I would recommend CC of IL & Brian for anyone that thinking about doing CC training coarse, the two 8 hours days went by in a flash, Basic Firearm training / handling thru Live ammo with private range time, all paper work completed and sent to
Great job by Brian learned a lot. Brian took his time to explain everything so it was very clear.
My fiance and I were looking for classes all over that would work with both of our busy schedules. And we were not sure whether or not we were even going to take the class in the end. Brian was one of my customers. We had a few exchanges asked him a few questions and that's how the ball got rolling. We ended up signing up for his class in February. That was the best decision we made. For myself, I knew very little about firearms, for my parents were not ones who wanted nothing to do with them. I learned a lot in the two days of the class. If you are deciding which class and where to go, this is the last place you really have to look. Great location for the class, and the range is clean and well maintained. I will be back for sure. Thank you Brian for the knowledge you brought to Michael and I.
Terrific course. Thorough and moved at a terrific speed for the students. Answered all questions and taught everyone safety and laws and many other issues. Would highly recommend. He's a patient instructor with expert knowledge.
The class was excellent. Brian makes the material easy to understand. He's a great teacher.
Excellent classroom setting. Comprehensive teachings on gun safety, legalities of responsible gun ownership and understanding of proper care and usage. Gun range practice a plus. A must for any person of any age looking to protect themselves and their loved ones from grave danger. Classes are comfortable, understandable and conveniently located.
EXCELLENT class. Brian is superb as an instructor. Learned an immense amount about the safety in handling a firearm.
Concealed Carry of Illinois delivered a above and beyond experience! The CCL two day class was super informative and provided me with info that I thought I had already known. I was dreading sitting through a 16 hour course and when I was done I could not believe how the time just flew by. Brian was a super engaged instructor and kept the class very involved. I would recommend CCI to anyone looking to secure their CCL. I would also look into additional training courses they offer that would address any deficiencies that you may be questioning yourself on.
Brian was a great instructor and the class was very informative! Honestly, I didn't know what to expect going into the class. I was pleasantly surprised to find the class very engaging and the time flew by. I'm very happy with choosing this class and would recommend it to anyone thinking getting a CCL.
