Being a lifelong resident of the wide circle called the 'Chicagoland area'.... may I suggest as others have...look WEST of Cook Cty... to KANE county, southern McHenry, or far eastern DeKalb counties. It'd be a MUCH faster commute to Itasca than from NW Indiana AND when your work moves into Canal ST. (Chi-town?) you can take a commuter train from Geneva IL right into the Ogilvie Transportation Center in heart of Chicago which sits right at Canal and Madison Ave. Kane County and areas in southern McHenry/eastern Dekalb County have several rural areas/smaller towns in which to settle. Keep in mind, though, this is flatlander CORN country and you won't find much remaining in wooded homestead areas and the cost of a patch of ground in these areas of IL is costly. Before moving up here...take a little vacation and try doing a commute during rush hour from NW Indiana (or wherever you think you'd like to move) to AND from Itasca during the heat of rush hour. It'd be a good reality check for you. Definitely check commuter train availability too.

on canal?
The address is 111 N. Canal St.

requirements as an IL resident: age, background check, training, qualification,
etc...

Now the Illinois State Police (ISP) and not the law accepts the following
courses for credit:

Illinois Hunter Safety Course
Chicago Firearms Safety Course
Florida Concealed Carry
Kentucky Concealed Carry
Michigan Concealed Carry
Missouri Concealed Carry
Nevada Concealed Carry
Utah Concealed Carry

That means is you have one of the above you get 4 hours credit toward the
16 hour training requirement. So if you are lets say a GA or IN resident and
have the FL CCW. You only need 12 hours training to meet the 16 hour
requirement.

and that you have a CCL/CCW/CWP from an other state.
I got this from the ISP website https://ccl4illinois.com/ccw/Public/Home.aspx
Under the Requirements Prior to Applyin for a Concealed Carry License section ..............

NON-RESIDENTS


In accordance with 430 ILCS 66/40 (b), out of state residents may be eligible for an Illinois Concealed Carry License if your state meets the definition of substantially similar as established by rule. See 20 Il. Admin. Code 1231.10. Currently, the states identified below have been determined to have laws related to firearm ownership, possession, and carrying that are substantially similar to the requirements to obtain a license under Illinois’ law; and, therefore, may apply for an Concealed Carry License. This list will be updated as additional states are identified as substantially similar. Further Information concerning the regulations for non-resident applications can be found at 20 Il. Admin. Code 1231.110.

One big reason I'm considering the move is the wife is from Northern Indiana... Would it be feasible to live over in Indiana and make the commute everyday?.. I live outside atlanta now so I know you traffic...
My wife and I both conceal carry daily.. And shoot weekly (rifle and handgun)... If I had property, say 10 acres, in IL, is shooting there a decent possibility? We're not fond of indoor ranges.

Any thoughts would be appreciated...
Nothing much good I can say about Illinois except my family lives there...other than that, nothing but corn fields and democrats

That came from IllinoisCarry. That is not on the state website.

Actual text of the law:

Quote:
(430 ILCS 66/40)
Sec. 40. Non-resident license applications.
(a) For the purposes of this Section, "non-resident" means a person who has not resided within this State for more than 30 days and resides in another state or territory.
(b) The Department shall by rule allow for non-resident license applications from any state or territory of the United States with laws related to firearm ownership, possession, and carrying, that are substantially similar to the requirements to obtain a license under this Act.
(c) A resident of a state or territory approved by the Department under subsection (b) of this Section may apply for a non-resident license. The applicant shall apply to the Department and must meet all of the qualifications established in Section 25 of this Act, except for the Illinois residency requirement in item (xiv) of paragraph (2) of subsection (a) of Section 4 of the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. The applicant shall submit:
(1) the application and documentation required under Section 30 of this Act and the applicable fee;
(2) a notarized document stating that the applicant:
(A) is eligible under federal law and the laws of his or her state or territory of residence to own or possess a firearm;
(B) if applicable, has a license or permit to carry a firearm or concealed firearm issued by his or her state or territory of residence and attach a copy of the license or permit to the application;
(C) understands Illinois laws pertaining to the possession and transport of firearms, and
(D) acknowledges that the applicant is subject to the jurisdiction of the Department and Illinois courts for any violation of this Act; and
(3) a photocopy of any certificates or other evidence of compliance with the training requirements under Section 75 of this Act; and
(4) a head and shoulder color photograph in a size specified by the Department taken within the 30 days preceding the date of the application.
(d) In lieu of an Illinois driver's license or Illinois identification card, a non-resident applicant shall provide similar documentation from his or her state or territory of residence. In lieu of a valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card, the applicant shall submit documentation and information required by the Department to obtain a Firearm Owner's Identification Card, including an affidavit that the non-resident meets the mental health standards to obtain a firearm under Illinois law, and the Department shall ensure that the applicant would meet the eligibility criteria to obtain a Firearm Owner's Identification card if he or she was a resident of this State.
(e) Nothing in this Act shall prohibit a non-resident from transporting a concealed firearm within his or her vehicle in Illinois, if the concealed firearm remains within his or her vehicle and the non-resident:
(1) is not prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm under federal law;
(2) is eligible to carry a firearm in public under the laws of his or her state or territory of residence, as evidenced by the possession of a concealed carry license or permit issued by his or her state of residence, if applicable; and
(3) is not in possession of a license under this Act.
If the non-resident leaves his or her vehicle unattended, he or she shall store the firearm within a locked vehicle or locked container within the vehicle in accordance with subsection (b) of Section 65 of this Act.
