FOID AND ILCC LICENSE UPDATES
There have been a lot of questions and some confusion on the State's extension order for FOID and ILCC licenses. Per the Illinois State Police, if your FOID or ILCC expired AFTER March 9th, you fall under the new provisions of the extension.

If your FOID or ILCC expired prior to March 9th, your FOID is NOT active and your ILCC has been revoked. If you expired prior to March 9th with an ILCC license and did not take the required ILCC Renewal class, you will have to take the initial 16 hour class again to obtain your ILCC license.

Again, the "magic" date is March 9th. Please check your licenses and know where you stand with these. The ISP has updated their website for the FAQs page. For additional answers to your questions, please visit ISP FAQ.

PRIVATE HANDGUN LESSONS
We are still offering Private Handgun lessons. We offer 3 packages for our customers, whether you are brand new to shooting or just looking to sharpen your skills. Our packages are all inclusive. We provide: Instructor, Range, Firearm, Ammo, Targets, Eye and Ear protection. If you have your own firearm and ammo, you are welcome to use that as well. Rick M. and Rick B. are available by reservation only on Tuesdays and Thursdays .

BLACK FRIDAY
Looking for something to do besides shopping on Black Friday? Why not come on down to the Bullet Trap and get some free simulator time, or try out our MantisX shooting systems. We are offering a hands-on demonstration of both systems for free on Friday, Nov 27. You will have the opportunity to take the simulator for a test run and do some shooting requiring no ammo or range fees. It doesn't get any better than that. Both of these systems will be running and available next door at the Bullet Trap Training Center.
NOTES FROM DAN'S DESK
As all of you are aware these are trying and stressful times. Not to mention uncertainty in all aspects of life. We as a business are experiencing our fair share of difficulties as well. It is extremely hard to plan and make any projections as to what course of action to follow next when the requirements are a moving target.

The one constant we have been able to enjoy her at the Bullet Trap are our faithful and loyal customers. We cannot express the gratitude we have for all of you and what it means to us. A big Thank You to each and every one of you and we will strive to get through this together. We will make every attempt to communicate with you and keep you informed of the changing industry. Carry safe and carry often.
AMMO AND RENTAL GUNS
Just a heads up. As you all know ammo is in very short supply. This hampers our ability to provide rental guns as well. We are working on both fronts and will notify you all as soon as the ammo situation improves.

That being said there are alternatives to range time. We highly recommend the simulator to maintain currency as well as to learn and develop new skills. Don't forget the MantisX as an additional skill developer as well. You can try both for free on Black Friday.
CONSIGNMENT FIREARMS
We have a great selection of consignment firearms in stock. We continue to get consignment firearms weekly, both handguns and long guns. We are accepting new consignments at this time. Whether you are looking to get rid of a few guns or have and estate you need help with, we can help you to sell them. Simply bring your firearms in (cased and unloaded) and talk with one of our staff members. We will also come to your location if needed. To view our current inventory of consignment and all other firearms, visit FIREARMS
