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!
