I understand your frustration in regards to reciprocity. Some states carry permits are being honored by Illinois and count towards 4 hours of training. Indiana is not one of them.

Currently something like 17 states will be honoring Illinois carry permits because this carry permit is the most restrictive shall issue in the nation. It's amazing that 17 states are doing this, because illinois honors not one fo theirs.

Each instructor is able to charge what he or she wishes. I have spoken with dozens of instructors and see that prices are varying mostly by region. For example the down state southern IL guys are charging about 25% less than the Chicago guys.

It also depends on what is included. Some guys are charging $140 for the class, but then including nothing, ammo extra, range fee extra, targets extra, breakfast extra, lunch extra. All said and done that $140 class is now costing $200. I saw prices as high as $190 for just the CC class, not including breakfast, lunch, firearm, targets or ammo. Range fees were included in this particular class, and for the record range fees run about $20 per shooter.

I can tell you I am charging $174.99 for the full NRA basis class (counts towards 8 hours of training). I am charging $149.99 for the IL CC laws and weapons handling portion of class which is mandatory. If you combine the two classes I am offering a $30 discount. These classes are all inclusive, all you need to do is show up.

Breakfast, lunch, range fees, targets, ammo, firearm, eye protection, ear protection, are all included in my classes for no extra cost. And the chance to see my smiling face and listen to my angelic voice jabber for 8 hours: Priceless

For the Illinois CCW do you have to take both classes? Where are you instructing your classes at? I just looked up and there are 18 states honoring Illinois and of course f**king Indiana is honoring it!!!

I am taking the 8 hour class tomorrow, I am a veteran, you must provide your DD 214. The cost is $150.00. It has been a long time coming, I think I will have a hard time sleeping, many of us thought we would never see this in our lifetime.
