Didn't I just read Todd V say at IllinoisCarry that there were 12,000? Maybe I need to walk away from the computer and rest my eyes.

I helped my FIL do his this morning and his permit number was in that 22,000 number.
Mine was in the 6000 range on Sunday

A month ago, there were 2000 instructors listed. 100 pages of instructors on the ill web site.

In contrast, after 8 years, Nebraska has 160 instructors.

Most instructors aren't instructing or are instructing in groups. If you do the average, it's 11 applicants per instructor.

I suspect in a few years the list of IL instructors will be closer to Nebraska.

yeah, apparently cook county was dead last in number of applications compared to the other 101 IL counties....how ironic

i'm in a holding pattern until I know if my wife is being relocated out of state so i havent applied yet. I did see my first NO CCW sticker on a customers business entrance this morning..... and i thought they were a good customer

looking forward to the additional circus antics this will generate between the mayor, chief of police, and the chicago PD, when contending with the new law and whatever it brings about....hopefully just more dead BG's.....
