Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
With the recent enactment of the new Concealed Carry Law in Illinois, citizens will now be allowed to carry weapons upon meeting eligibility requirements and completion of 16-hours of state-approved certified training.
Carrying a firearm comes with safety and responsibility. With the new Concealed Carry Law, Digby’s Detective & Security Agency, Inc. is now offering state-approved Concealed Carry Courses. Their goal is to educate and help ensure safety and responsibility for those that choose to carry a firearm in Illinois. Firearm training and safe handling skills are not only critical to protection and self-defense but are required by the new law.
Concealed Carry courses will be held at Digby’s Training Academy located at 2850 South Wabash, Suite 201, Chicago, IL. Courses are taught by certified Illinois Concealed Carry and NRA firearms Instructors who are best in class in the industry. Students who successfully complete the course will receive an approved “Course Completion” certificate that will satisfy the legally required State of Illinois “Affidavit of Training”. This must be presented with the Illinois permit application.
Digby’s “Armed with Safety & Responsibility” campaign includes local spot television (TBD), radio and web-based Public Relations announcements.
In addition, Digby’s plans to launch a grassroots outreach effort with local Chicago police departments.
