Chicago Arms operates the ONLY Public Firearm Training Academy in the Downtown Chicago Loop. Our classroom training is conducted on the 21st floor of a beautiful high-rise building directly behind the James R. Thompson IL State Building at the corner of LaSalle & Lake Streets. We provide free fresh coffee/tea to all students and we have numerous food locations in the area for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our training facility is accessible by all CTA El trains with the Clark/Lake stop accessible from our building. Students benefit from our safe, comfortable, quiet environment where learning is the focus. They are not subjected to breathing lead filled air for hours in a loud and stinky gun range.
