NWIFI or Northwest Illinois Firearm Instruction is a locally owned and operated, Insured, Illinois State Police approved company in Freeport, Illinois dedicated to providing a comprehensive Illinois permit to carry class anywhere in the State. The class offered for Concealed Carry also qualifies for the Florida CC program.
This is not a class for those unfamiliar with firearms. If you are a first time shooter or have little to no expirience, there are other class oppertunites available to you prior to taking a Concealed Carry class. Contact us for more information.
Our renewal classes are formatted and ready to be scheduled. As a reminder, the renewal class is 3 hours and includes re-qualification on the range. Check out our class schedule or contact us to schedule a renewal class.
NWIFI is committed to provide training that allows students to understand the benefits and risks to carrying concealed in Illinois. Topics on the moral, ethical, legal and financial responsibilities of carrying concealed are discussed in detail as well as the Illinois Concealed Carry ACT.

Here is a list of states where an Illinois resident with a license to carry may go armed. They are: AK, AL, AR, AZ, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, MI (Illinois Resident Permit Only), MN, MO, MS, MT, NC, NE, NH, NV, OH, OK, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WI, and WV. (only 29 states) Given Illinois does not honor any other states permit, this list will change very little, if at all.
Unlike many of our competitors who offer Illinois concealed carry training, once our clients complete their NACFI Illinois training (even if only the second day – plus shooting), they may use our NACFI certificate to apply for a Florida license.
Should our clients chose to obtain an Out of State Florida license after obtaining their IL license through NWIFI, they can carry in the following 31 states: AK, AL, AR, AZ, DE, FL, GA, IA, ID, IN, KS, KY, LA, MO, MS, MT, NC, ND, NE, NM, NV, OH, OK, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WV, and WY.
