The permit is valid for 5 years and re-training is not required for renewal. This permit is perfect for people who travel and want to legally protect themselves and their family.  All the training materials are provided and for your added convenience we provide photos and fingerprint cards.

Extreme Exigency is proud to announce we have accomplished another large goal forward in our mission to reduce victimization in all areas of life through education and prevention.

Extreme Exigency was recently approved by local Judicial Circuits in Southern Illinois to provide VIP presentations. Starting in February 2015.  The third Thursday of every other month Extreme Exigency will be hosting “Victim Impact Panel Presentations.”

The purpose of the Victim Impact Panel (VIP) presentations are to help DWI/DUI offenders realize the lasting and long-term effects of impaired driving, to create an empathy and understanding of the tragedy, to leave an impression that will change thinking and behavior, and to prevent future offenses from occurring. This workshop has been highly revered and successfully delivered in many court locations in Southern Illinois and was the staple workshop for Franklin County, Jefferson County and Washington County Courts for many years. In years past this workshop has been endorsed by MADD and the Southern Illinois Chapter of Parents of Murdered Children.

Extreme Exigency is honored to be able add this presentation and service to our current efforts to reduce victimization and promote personal safety.

The predator’s playbook sets in motion a path towards a way of life with safety for ourselves first, and steadily moves through safety in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, places of worship and closing with safety for our greatest blessings our children.

Utah Concealed Firearm Permit

​Most Popular Non-Resident Permit in the Nation

            A stun gun, pepper spray and other improvised weapons in the hands of someone "not" trained is much like owning a handgun and not having firearms training or ammunition… extremely ill-advised. Hands-on training from certified instructors is an ABSOLUTE MUST!   Without a doubt, a Stun Gun can be an extremely effective tool for self-defense and frequently used by Law Enforcement to defuse violent situations. But understand this is providing you have been properly trained by certified instructors. Even the largest and most violent criminals will be discouraged from the electronic voltage of a stun gun, deployment of pepper spray or other improvised weapons and every citizen, young or old, fragile or strong, can learn proven deployment techniques that will allow them to defend off an attack and get away safely.

            This 2-hour course could quite possibly be the best 2-hour investment of your life. We begin by discussing when we are vulnerable and recognizing dangerous situations, the moment of extreme exigency and Illinois laws, then jump right into our main focus…the Stun Gun and improvised weapons. Upon completion of the course, you WILL receive an actual Stun Gun for your personal protection valued at $39.95 plus a carrying case another $10.00 value.

Curriculum includes:
• Situational Awareness…Conditions to Avoid
• Extreme Exigency and Illinois Laws
• Primary sites to target on the Human Body
• Prohibited areas

            NOTE: You will receive your own FREE stun gun (civilian version) and Pepper Spray for personal defense upon completion of this training course, which is INCLUDED ($49.95 Value and Carrying Case $10.00 Value)*** in the course cost.

Course Date: 6:30 pm, Thursday June 13, 2019

Cost: $50.00

Location:  Extreme Exigency Shooting Park, 9911 River Bend Road,  Benton, IL

            Our extremely affordable price makes this training basically FREE, considering the value of the Stun Gun you receive is INCLUDED in the price of this life changing course.
