Win a prize! Win fame and fortune! Win the envy of all on the forum! Win, win, win!

How, you ask? It is simple, just be the first one to post a photo of your new Ill CCW license. Blank out the private parts, of course. No personal identification, just leave enough so we know it is legit and yours. No instructors, no photoshop nonsense. OK?

What will you win? Hell, I don't know but I'll bet someone here will make a suggestion or two.

PS - If you want, post here with the date and time your application was completed so we can keep a running tally of times between application and license receipt.

Completed for Lizzie and I between four and five PM 01/02/14.  We'll see how long it takes when they start to process them.  Mine was time stamped at 4:24 and Lizzie's 4:54 for the payment.

Tried unsuccessfully a number times to log in to check status today.  In the past it was not a problem and all worked very well.  Maybe the overload has taken the sight down today, I don't know.

Can't believe that Jamie, I and Ron are the only ones on the posse who have successfully applied.  

Who else has completed theirs???

I tried to check my status today also, and achieved the same result as you, Jim.  Since I did not bow to the requirement of electronic fingerprints, I figure all those that applied will receive their permits long before me.
It's not like it used to be, but it'll do.

Yesterday, some of the instructors who applied on Dec 18th, started showing "Approved" instead of "Under Review" on their applications. More today and it continues to grow. No wonder the website is slow with everyone checking to see if their status has changed! Shouldn't be long now, folks.

Might be a few days for you yet, JJ. They are still working their way through the instructors (about 2000 of them) and they haven't gotten to me yet. They have a press conference tomorrow at around 10 AM and they will be saying they have mailed some out. But I doubt it will be many.

This contest is fixed! I'd have to move to Hawaii or Illinois to win. I can't afford Hawaii and Illinois is full of gun nuts running around in cowboy hats. I'd file a complaint with the Illinois Attorney General's office or the Illinois State Commerce Bureau, but I can't afford the bribes required to get them to take any action.

Lizzie is approved also, but I posted here first and not sure when we both got approved.  Neither one of us has received any e-mail or other notification.  Checked their site and found that we are both approved.  Don't know when they'll be mailing the license, but maybe by the next time I make the run to the refiners with the gold I can be "legal." :mr47_04:


Thanks Uncle Denny & Uncle SK! :good:

Ha! Thought you might be. But they still haven't gotten around to me. I'm still "Under Review". There seems to be no logical order to the change in status. My students are being approved before I am!! Oh well, it will come when it comes.

People with NO fingerprints are being approved right along with those that have them - just as I suspected would happen and why I advised our students to save their money on prints.

Well, I'm hoping today is the day for both of us. Mine still shows "Under Review" but there seems to be a lot of people receiving their licenses while still under review. Seems the ISP has stopped updating the info we can access and put the people to work printing and mailing licenses.

So, it looks like we have a three-way tie. That means you each get 1/3rd of the grand prize. Problem is, we don't have a suitable prize yet.

But congratulations to all!  Still waiting on mine.

Well, after 106 days, I checked the website today and lo and behold my status was "Active" with a CCL # 142468016x.  So, I guess it must be in the mail. Just short of the 120 days allotted for applicants that applied without fingerprints.

Congrats, Wrangler Rich, on the status change. The "ill" legislature doesn't reconvene until the 29th, and hopefully one of the various bills which might enable Cheeseheads to carry concealed in Illinois will get passed this year.

The Illinois State Police turned up some "disreputable associates" in their background check for King. They are also investigating rumors about him known to be holding a stick of dynamite in public and scavenging brass. I think there may also be a warrant out on him for operating an unlicensed push cart.

You're scaring me son.  Myself, Lizzie and Rough Rider Ron all got ours in February and Dirt Plye in April.

We don't need no stinking pictures!

Not to mention Wrangler Rich...

Well, you didn't follow the rules. So I'm going to award the prize to Dirt Pyle - a whole dozen of empty 9 mm brass.

As a consolation prize, each of the others will receive one 9 mm casing. Only one or two have been stepped on.

Well, it appears the ISP changed their CCW web site a bit. I used to get to 30% completed before being rejected as not being a resident of Hawaii. After trying my formerly daily, then weekly, now bi-monthly, and soon to be annual check of the web site, I'm stuck at 9% progress. I can only imagine the additional crap they added to the process in addition to moving the state of residency question forward. It appears Illinois is still limiting residents of 4 states to apply: Hawaii, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Virginia.

Amusingly (for some values thereof) the site would let me continue as a Wisconsin resident if i were applying for Illinois Concealed Carry License Instructor Certification. It doesn't appear that the resident of any state (or American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, and the Virgin Islands) is blocked from applying to be an Illinois Concealed Carry Instructor. I'll leave it to DD & SK to discuss if the intent is to screw Illinois-resident instructors by allowing out-of-state instructors to teach classes, or to get more money by collecting instructor license fees without allowing any more non-residents to actually obtain permits, or if it's just a programming glitch in the web site.
