Illinois Concealed Carry Classes – How Soon?

We have received word that the Illinois State Police may start approving instructors a little bit ahead of schedule. All indications are that they were actually ready to start the online application process August 23, but halted it due to a minor glitch. That’s great news.

Additionally, it seems that the curriculum approval process may not be nearly as cumbersome (and time consuming) as many of us had feared. Without a crystal ball, it is impossible to know for sure, but I would not be shocked if we could start offering the class in October.
