    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.

    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 :rolleyes:

    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.....:mad: and i thought they were a good customer:p

    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.....

    Crook County's population is 5.2 million
    Illinois population is 12.3 million

    I would really like to see the applications and how they sort out by county.
    Looked for it cannot find it anywhere, anybody else see the raw data?

    No problem, I was a little suprised at the data, my lowly Winnebago County came in 7th or 8th so far I believe.

    my bad, i didn't clarify this when i posted but the reference i was quoting was referring to "per capita" numbers, so while cook county had over 5300 apps, it was the fewest per number of residents of the county.

    Not the fewest, 2 counties beat out Cook, but damn near the bottom.
    Considering that for years it was illegal to own a handgun in the City
    I am not surprised. All and all not bad numbers.

    This is a Big victory for all gun owners. The courts have up held the rights of Illinois citizens regarding their Constitutional rights. It has taken many hours for pro-gun people to bring this to the courts. This has to be one the greatest wins for all gun owners. I would hope other citizens in "Blue" states would challage their Liberal masters.:cool:
