Courses Offered

We offer a variety of training options here at P6!

If you’re planning on purchasing a firearm for recreation, home or personal defense, or handle one regularly, you owe it to yourself and to those around you to contact P6 Firearms Training, LLC to learn how to properly handle, maintain, and use your handgun, rifle, or shotgun. We offer the highest quality firearm safety and personal defense training in the Chicagoland area, bar none.

It never ceases to amaze us that individuals spend thousands of dollars on firearms, ammunition, targets, holsters, range fees and the “latest and greatest” shooting gadgets, but neglect investing in their own training! The truth is that you can tire of a firearm, sell it, trade it, or realize that it wasn’t the right fit for you and you are no better off for your investment. But the safety fundamentals and shooting skills you walk away with, after only a short time with us, will last you a lifetime.

All of our courses focus first and foremost on firearm safety and safe handling practices. We start by working with our students to establish solid fundamentals; correct grip, stance and trigger mechanics. We teach them how to place shots where they want them instead of where they hope they will land. To consistently hit bulls eyes instead of throwing lead and money down range. How to safely handle, load, unload, clean and store your firearm. We also help our students keep up to date with the latest firearm laws and most importantly, how to avoid accidents due to ignorance and carelessness.

**Note – Any of the courses we offer at P6 Firearms Training, LLC can be set up as a “Ladies Only” experience. Our Ladies Only courses are guaranteed to be presented without the patronizing attitude so commonly found in the firearms community; an attitude that needs to go away sooner rather than later in our opinion.
