    ILLinois Concealed Carry Renewal

    It was brought to my attention recently that included in the original law is the requirement to "re-certify" in order to renew. This requires a three hour course with the first two on updates (read successful attempts by the gun grabbers) and the same live fire exercise as the original...

    Live fire qualification with a concealable firearm consisting of minimum of 30 rounds which must include 10 rounds from a distance of 5 yards; 10 rounds from a distance of 7 yards; and 10 rounds from a distance of 10 yards at a B-27 silhouette target approved by the Illinois State Police.

    So in addition to the $153.00 renewal fee, the highest in the nation, the applicant (supplicant) must pay for a three hour class and spend the time to do so.

    Mine expires in April 2019 and we are on the cusp of moving from this hellhole, but not sure if it happens by next Spring. I thought that it might pay to get it while still here and have the ability to carry after I move, but nooo...the state revokes ILLinois resident carry permits once a driver's license is issued in another state....ie the state of permanent residence.

    Bottom line...if I don't get my rear in gear I will be forking out 200 bucks for a few months of being able to utilize my constitutional rights.
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    I could go on and on about IL. and how its carry laws keep some of the people that need that ability most from doing so simply because it costs so much.

    That's a difficult decision you have to make. Any chance you can push the move date up a little?

    I just had to renew my FL. permit. I was going to do it online but found that I had neglected to update my address with them. As a consequence I did not get the letter notifying me to renew and that letter had some code in it I needed to renew online. My mistake.

    So I stopped in to the county gov't complex the other day to renew there. Twenty minutes and $57 later I was handed a new card with new photo, good thing after losing 45lbs, and now I'm good until 2025!

    Run don't walk away from IL!

    It's not only the carry laws. The citizens of Chicago have no place to get training, get licensed, purchase a firearm or train with one as there are no gun shops or ranges in the city. A person has to travel 25-35 minutes to get to the closest place and of course, if they use public transportation they are prohibited from carrying/transporting a firearm on that conveyance.

    The Democrats who control the city have those people imprisoned in a killing zone.

    Sadly the people that are being imprisoned continue to vote for their keepers.

    They lowered the application fee and the renewal fee last year. I renewed online with no range requal (though our security teams are required by the company we work for to requal once a year.

    Hope you can move to Free America soon!

    Illinois is as bad as Kalifornia in most ways and, unfortunately, worse in a couple of ways too. I feel for you, having gun grabbers in the state legislature.

    I don't mean to rub your nose in it, but in other states like Texas, you take the class one time, take a class test and a shooting test, then you're done with class time and qualifying - you just pay $40 for your renewal every 5 years. And, we're trying to get it where constitutional carry is possible now. Your elected representatives in Springfield need a field trip or two to see how this stuff is supposed to work.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Agreed. I turned in my second renewal here in Ohio May 19. I was called that I was approved May 23. Cost $50. No additional training required.

    I don't know if I'd go that far. At least IL has "shall issue" NY & California are still stuck in "may issue", aren't they?
