Firearms Training


Contact Us

From basic to advanced firearms training, our focus is on teaching students how to safely and legally carry a firearm and qualify marksmanship at our convenient, on-campus live-fire range. Concealed carry courses at RLC make you eligible to apply for Illinois and Florida licenses. Once you've learned the basics from our qualified instructors, move on to more challenging courses in handgun training like our advanced techniques and low light engagement training.
