What other are saying about their training experience at 2 Palms
“After attending the IL CCW training class I felt very good. I think that it was very informative, fun and very enlightening. I learned quite a bit and appreciate the training that I received.” – Ron K.
“As a former FBI Special Agent, I have attended countless hours of world-class firearms training. Mark’s concealed carry course teaches the same world-class fundamentals in a fun and safe way that is accessible to shooters of all levels. More than anything Mark’s experience, anecdotes and cheerful personality are what stand out the most. I would highly recommend Mark’s course to anyone interested in obtaining an Illinois Concealed Carry License.” – Wes Drone
Dear sir or madam,
I’d like to give you an endorsement for Mark Palmisano, owner/operator of 2 Palms Shooter Supplies, when it comes to your safety & security needs in your church involving the concealed carry of firearms.
While it is unfortunate that we live in a time where such precautions are needed against the threat of violence against our church activities, we are blessed to have the freedom to be trained, equipped and protect ourselves under the 2nd amendment.
Many years ago, Mark saw the need in our own church to be trained and prepared for the unlikely and unwanted situation of an act of violence in our midst. This became his passion, and he founded a safety/security ministry within our church that trains men and women on the use of concealed firearms in a public forum during an act of violence/domestic terrorism. Since that time, this ministry has grown into a complete, well rounded ministry devoted to the safety of our attenders including video monitoring of all premises, situational awareness, watching incoming severe weather, First aid, CPR/defibrillator training, and of course concealed carry training.
Mark has held concealed carry classes at our church that have been open to the public in helping law abiding citizens (men & women) receive their proper training to apply and receive their concealed carry. Mark is an eloquent speaker and a great teacher/trainer both in the classroom and on the gun range working with people who are new to firearm training and those who are more experienced.
If you have not considered this type of training for your church, I want to encourage you as a pastor, to prayerfully consider being prepared for the unlikely and unthinkable, by hiring Mark to help you with your safety/security needs.
Protecting the Sheep…

“I took the Illinois Conceal Carry Class from Mark Palmisano. The instruction was relevant, and thorough. His instruction utilized written materials, class room instruction, video and hands on in class and range instruction. I would highly recommend him and his instruction.” – Rev. Mike Evans, Pastor Bethel Baptist Church, Caseyville, IL
“One of the best decisions we made at New Rivers Church was to start concealed carry classes. An equally important decision was choosing Mark Palmisano as our instructor. He is knowledgeable and does a fantastic job of engaging the students. I love his choice of small class sizes. I would recommend Mark to anyone.” – Kevin Wilson, Pastor New Rivers Assembly of God Church, Maryville, IL
