Illinois Carry Concealed Training Classes
 
The Illinois State Police finally releases their curriculum requirements on Friday and began accepting applications for CC trainers.

I will begin hosting CC classes in Illinois as soon as I get approval from the state police. This will probably be in early October, or maybe late September.

If anyone is interested, PM me and I'll add you to the list to be notified.

We'll be doing classes in and around the North & Northwest suburbs of Chicago. If you have any recommendations, I am all ears.

If you want to be added to the waiting list please email or PM me.

Have you heard if they are considering honoring other states or is it going to be this BS of $300 plus cost of the class?

As of right now there is no reciprocity of Illinois accepting any other states. If you want to carry in Illinois, at this point, you will need an Illinois carry permit.

I have some theories why Illinois is charging $300 to out of state residents, and I suspect that Illinois may try to position themselves as "the universal" carry permit due to the stringent 16 hour and shooting requirements. Many states are already saying they will accept Illinois, even if Illinois doesn't accept theirs. With the most training required of any shall issue in the country, I think Illinois may become the permit people seek. Just speculating however :)
