A must for gun owners

I was a gun enthusiast 20 years ago. What a difference then & now. Tons of information to learn. I am going to take more classes here. Got more than I bargained for the price! Is there 6 stars? Well worth it.

by Kevin Hicks on Condition Yellow Academy

Condition Yellow Academy is an outstanding provider of Firearm training. Steve did an amazing job sharing his knowledge and helping our class to formulate the right mind set for conceal carry in addition to the technical portion. Mark did a great job too. The direction in understanding the IL firearm laws was invaluable. I will definitely take more classes at CYA!

Better then I thought!!

I took my concealed carry class at the McHenry location with Brian, it was a better experience than what I was expecting from a 16-hour class. It was fun, educational, Interactive. That class I happen to be the only female in it which at first made me a little nervous being a female to begin with,wondering if I'm going to be talked to or treated differently for my sex but I was treated no differently than the guys. They were very professional and went out of their way to tell me about sites and companies to look at for female concealed carry holsters and products. I've been recommending them to everyone and anyone that asks me about concealed carry classes. Love them and I will definitely be giving them a call when it's time to renew my card.

Nothing Better

Had the opportunity to take this course for my CCL. I was a little apprehensive at first hearing stories that courses are boring and last forever. Was I in for a surprise, Mark, the course instructor did an excellent job, he provided the answers to all the question that arose. His presentation of the material was excellent, the material covered all the bases. The 16 hour two day course flew by, before I knew it, it was done. Thanks to everyone at CYA, you have my recommendation!!!

a must for any gun owner

If are a responsible gun owner, this class will open your eyes to a whole different level of gun ownership, a whole different level of responsibility, and situational awareness; but most of all, it IS a tremendous step towards our own personal goals to keep our loved ones safer.

Conceal and carry course

Recently attended the Illinois conceal and carry course offered in McHenry. The course was great and Brian was a excellent instructor, he knew the laws was able to clearly articulate the differences between the written and intended use of the law. I personally learned a lot from the class and glad I took it. All employees were friendly and professional, can't wait to use the range there and get some more training.

best people

Best place to do business with. been there before and definitely will be there again..Thanks guys

Fantastic class

Great class with really knowledgeable instructors

Great Life Changing Class

If your looking for a class that will take the time to explain real life experience with concealed carry, look no farther. The team of trainers did a great job explaining the laws, identifying when to use, how to use, how to clean your guns the proper way and all the what ifs. They go in great detail about the laws and what to do if you have to defend yourself or love ones. If your new to this, the trainers identify who you are and give you the time to explain everything. Also, this was a great way to meet others that have the same interest as me. Thank you Brian, Mark and Steve for your time to teach me and my wife about our rights and the 2nd amendment! I look forward to doing more classes to advance.

Great Training Course

My wife and I both did the Concealed Carry class to exercise our second amendment rights and to be able to legally carry to defend ourselves and loved ones. The instructors opened our eyes to so many new things that we never would have imagined and gave us an incredible understanding of the laws, the training and understanding of the equipment you would need.Mark, Steve and Brian did a great job working with everyone in class. The videos, you tube material and handouts gave us the knowledge we needed to be more understanding of our surroundings and know that using your gun should be your last resort.Thank you guys and Missy for working with us, we look forward to doing more training classes with you guys and possibly getting into a league.
