Default Illinois conceal carry fingerprinting

I'm taking the phase 2 class and range qualifying this weekend and was wondering just how much time the $40 optional fingerprinting saves in getting the permit approved. The $40 fee could buy a lot of ammo. I figure that the big rush to get permits should be over by now so not that many are applying. Anyone know?

Tennessee requires them, so I did not have to decide -

Remembering that IL government fought HARD to not have permits at all, and that they say the permit process can take 30 days longer without prints, I would send them in - because I would absolutely believe that your state would sit on your application for the full 30 extra days without them.

I used to live there, and am quite familiar with Cook county wagging the whole state to it's will - -

How can it be optional? Either they need the or they don't, right?

You sure it is not the SOC number that is optional?

It's optional. I found this at there FAQ site. Under how long will it take.

"Upon receipt of a completed application, including fee, the ISP shall issue or deny the applicant an Illinois Concealed Carry License within 90 days, provided the applicant submits a full set of fingerprints in electronic format. If fingerprints are not submitted the ISP is granted an additional 30 days to complete a manual background check. In all cases, law enforcement agencies will have 30 days to file an objection once an application is received."

https://ccl4illinois.com/ccw/Public/Faq.aspx

I'll probably bite the bullet and shell out the $40 for fingerprinting.

Applied without prints, got card 108 days later. Everyone in the class applied without prints so I don't know how that compares to submitting prints.

Mike, how long ago did you apply? How many were in your class?

We are dealing with IL here - the LAST state in the US to even ALLOW a CCW.
I lived there during the time that they wanted to bring in a state income tax.
They sold the idea to the taxpayers by telling them that this would replace the personal property (NOT Real Estate, but PERSONAL PROPERTY) tax that was so hated. We bought that big lie, and voted in the state income tax.
The next year, sure enough, we had BOTH taxes to pay!!

Then when we left, we sold our home there and bought out of state.
Six months later, they hit me with capital gains tax (state, not Federal) on the amount we sold our place for - since we did not re-invest it in IL!!!
PLUS, they hit me with a penalty because I did not pay it when we sold!!!

Lousy stinking state that I wish my folks had NEVER come back to!!

I beg forgiveness of those that still live there and like it -

I applied later part of May. There were 12 in the class, all neighbors on the same street. We all got permits in a three day span.
