Our Team...

Pistol Prep Academy provides law-abiding responsible citizens, beginner and experienced, with relevant, practical, and up to date instruction in the safe, efficient, and effective use of a firearm.

Our instructors have diverse backgrounds and all have far more training than the minimum required to be eligible to teach the IL Concealed Carry class. This team of professionals is comprised of US Army Veterans, Law Enforcement Officers, most have more than one NRA Instructor Certification, and some have additionally trained with experts in the industry such as Rob Pincus of the Personal Defense Network and I.C.E. Training, Steve Collins of Suarez International, and John Farnam of Defense Training International.

Whether you’re a new gun owner who is interested in learning how to properly use a pistol or perhaps a more experienced shooter looking for a refresher or personal protection training, we at Pistol Prep Academy have the knowledge, experience, and resources to provide you with the quality training you’re looking for. In addition to firearms training, we offer Refuse To Be A Victim® seminars where you can learn the personal safety tips and techniques you need to avoid dangerous situations and becoming a victim.

Our courses are fun, interactive, and professional where our number one focus is ALWAYS your safety.
