Default Finally doing a CC class

I've been dragging my feet, but I'm finally doing a class. I bit of a travel for me, but oh well. It's at Western Suburban Conceal Carry in Naperville. It was $175 with a Florida permit.

Reviews seemed positive on this place. Anyone have and experience there?

$175 with a Florida permit sounds really good. GL with the class.

You will love the class! It's engaging and not boring at all. Joe and Terry are awesome instructors. My wife and I took their class earlier this year.

I took mine there as well, and completely agree!

So how does it feel to carry every day? What do you do when you are going into a place with the no gun signs?? Truly interested.

You usually drive by the front door and see if there's a sign. Leave it in your car per the law.

Or you do the walk of shame back to your car and put it away.

There is also a app I've heard people use. I've heard it's kinda intrusive but it lists gfz's

Assuming you get a good holster that is comfortable, after a while you will not even think about it.

Before going anywhere, I always check to see if my destination has one of those anti-gun signs. A good resource is the "Anti gun posted business list". You can see it here: Listing of Anti-gun Businesses in Illinois

Be sure to check it before you go somewhere and if you encounter a place that's not on the list, please add an entry to the site so all of us can benefit.

I don't go to places that don't honor my 2nd amendment right. They don't get my business.

Once I went to Great Clips for a haircut appointment, but they weren't in the Anti Gun Posted list yet even though they had one of those silly signs. When I saw the sign, I got back in the car and went home. I scheduled a haircut somewhere else that respected American's rights.

Only once so far did I have to go to a location which was anti-gun. In my case it was a hospital. They had no-guns signs posted right at the parking lot entrance. In that case, I just locked the gun in the glove compartment.

I also don't frequent gfz's. I've left places too.

I did go to hooters. I promised my kid and I had to leave it in the car. Other than the obvious prohibited areas you can not carry.

Did you guys still have to pay the $150 IL processing fee? I know I have to pay for finger printing.

You don't have to pay for prints. They aren't required. It does come faster but not by much for what they charge to do it

Went to the range today for a quick session since I haven't been to one in 6months (before I broke my arm). Did a 30 shot group from 15-20' out. The stragglers were because I rushed a couple shot and didn't get a firm grip. I'm ready

Gotta love Illinois. They take away your Constitutionally protected civil right and sell it back to you for $150 (plus a $3.50 processing fee).

I figured and wasn't sweating it. But will probably use the Shield because it will be my go to gun.

I qualified with my Shield. Will be spending more time at the range though.

I must clarify, the cost of Florida was not included. Finger printing was offered only, but that was at a price of $20. I still have to pay the $112 for Florida which lasts 7 years

For $20 that was cheap. But I think you have to do manual prints for Florida don't you?
