Day 2

This is “Law Day”. An attorney will deliver a four hour law class on DVD. He is an IL State Police Certified Instructor, former Assistant State’s Attorney and a current defense attorney. He’s the best in the business when it comes to presenting Illinois law to the general public.
20 rounds of warm up, sight in and practice before shooting the 30 round live-fire test, then 10 rounds of practical/tactical drill.
The Madison County State’s Attorney, Tom Gibbons, or one of his associates attend this class for about an hour to answer your “shoot/don’t shoot” questions. This is a Trigger Talent exclusive and many students agree that this is a highlight.
