Safe Shot Firearm Academy, LLC. was founded by Wayne Inzerello in 2014. After working in the firearms industry, specifically at a gun range it was obvious that just because a person owns a firearm does not mean they know how to use it safely. After watching many people struggle with handling a firearm Safe Shot Firearm Academy was born.

Wayne is a certified NRA instructor, affiliate USCCA instructor and a certified Chief Range Safety Officer. The main objective is to teach individuals safe gun handling.

Students are taught proper firearm handling, aiming, stance, breath control, grip and range protocol. 

In addition, Wayne is also approved to teach Conceal Carry classes for the following States:

  • Illinois
  • Utah
  • Florida
  • Arizona

A wide range of classes are available from very basic to Illinois Conceal Carry Classes. Youth classes are also available.

Please visit our Class Descriptions Page for more class information.

Safe Shot Firearm Academy is affiliated with some of the best instructional organizations in the world, including the National Rifle Association (NRA), Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) and United States Conceal Carry Association (USCCA).
