Illinois Concealed Carry 

             
The Black Flag FCCL course far surpasses any other offering in IL to prepare Citizens to legally carry and deploy Firearms under real world conditions in the last state to fall into CCW.  We developed this Curriculum...we did NOT buy a pre-assembled packet that was designed for those with little or no background in Deadly Force.  This course was sent in and approved by the Illinois State Police.

Day 1 will be NRA Basic Pistol. 

Our "Day 2" Curriculum is designed to help you navigate the minefield of laws and legal restrictions of IL CCW while maintaining your ability to defend yourself and your loved ones.  This material is taught solely by Master Instructor  Rocco Wlodarek, who has been interpreting and teaching the use of force statutes to both civilian and Law Enforcement personnel for over a decade.  This course will also cover material on threat assessment, situational awareness, Victim Selection, psychological and physiological reactions to combat stress, mindset, CQB initiatives, scaling force, legal and personal aftermath, holster deployment drills, and much more.

Completion of the full 16 hour course would qualify you for both a Florida and Arizona (Non Resident) CCW.

Course includes:

>Materials
>Use of Firearms, SIRT trainers, and Holsters
>50 rounds of ammunition ( 16 HR course)
>Continental Breakfast and pastries
>Coffee, Espresso, and Beverages
>Lunch
>Range Fees
>Targets

Force On Force I 

           The Black Flag Force-On-Force workshop is designed to give participants a real time taste of stress inoculation training while contemplating a series of drills that will test their ability to deal with threats in a myriad of conditions.  It will cover multiple scenarios for everyday CCW as well as solo searching in structures.  This coursework is designed to promote critical thinking at all stages of action, and condition your mind to function when your body’s own defensive systems begin to activate.  The drills force you to recognize, override, and incorporate your body’s physiological responses to combat stress.  This is the only viable means of measuring real time performance.
ALL course material is taught by Law Enforcement, Rapid Response, and IALEFI Instructors who have both shoothouse and real-time experience. 
The “square rage” concept has no place here.
