Welcome to the ISRA Academy

The mission of the ISRA Academy is to promote firearm safety and excellence in marksmanship by providing training and other educational opportunities to all law-abiding gun owners in Illinois. 
 

In 1903, the year of inception of ISRA, the Education & Training Committee was formed with the sole purpose of providing civilians an opportunity to learn and practice shooting skills so they would become proficient marksmen if later called on to serve in the U.S. military. Over the years the activities of the Committee were expanded to include education and training of youth and women in all types of shooting sports.

Today, the overarching goal of the ISRA Academy is to be the ultimate resource for the shooter by providing not only information but also by offering courses, training instructors, and planning events, with an emphasis on involving more youth and women in a safe and fun environment. 

The ISRA is currently offering classes to meet the following objectives:

1. To provide quality courses at all levels
2. To build marksmanship skills moving from the simple to complex.
3. To take each person’s physical abilities into consideration when conducting classes.
4. To have classes taught by experienced instructors who have a high level of expertise.
5. To provide classes that meets the needs of students.
