Dear Valued Customers

MARCH 26, 2020

Dear Shooters,

I just ran a special 3-hour CCW renewal class for two students who were due for their CCW license to expire on April 2. We maintained appropriate distancing and this experimental “mini-class” served as a viable template to conduct private lessons for one or two individuals during our period of semi-closure.

On Target believes that introductory firearms training, especially for those who need their CCW renewal or have recently purchased their first firearm, is an essential public service.

Therefore, if you are in good health and free of COVID-19 symptoms, and in need of training to protect yourself and family, call us at 815-477-2020 and we will schedule a private training appointment during weekdays between 9am and 3pm.

If we employ good common sense, there is no reason why On Target cannot do our part to combat the COVID-19 while delivering judicious training for those in need.

Dear Valued Customer,

The On Target Range & Tactical Training Center will be closed at 5:00pm on Saturday March 21, 2020 until April 8, 2020 when we open our doors again at 9:00am.

  • All regular classes, special events, and private instruction already planned between the above times and dates will be re-scheduled.
  • Essential Law enforcement training will continue to be hosted by On Target for the duration of our hiatus and beyond.
  • Those customers awaiting delivery of their purchased firearms will be notified upon their arrival and appointment time and date for pick up will be arranged. Please bear in mind that On Target is not responsible for any delay within the background check process.

As you know, On Target has always tried to outfit and train our customers throughout this national emergency. Per the Illinois Governor’s mandate to “stay at home,” On Target will demonstrate our civic responsibility as we do our part to ensure the safety and health of our customers and employees.

Please keep in mind that April 8 is a target date for Illinois non-essential businesses to resume operation. This date, however, may change. On Target Range will post, through email and face book, any further notifications and updated information. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy, and we’ll all be back in the saddle before we know it.

Tom Dorsch

Director of Operations
