Hello guys, so here's the thing, i already have my Conceal Carry certificate and everything. All i need to do is basically get my thumbprints done and filed to the state police and apply for the CCL online. With that said, anyone know of a good place to do my thumbprints? I found a place on Clark St Chicago thatll do my prints for $60, is that about right what i should be paying for?
Thanks in advance!

I saw the online application and it said with prints its like a 90 day wait and without prints in the application its like a 120 day wait..hmm 1 month doesnt seem too bad

Average times are less than that currently. From what I've seen on Illinois carry. Prints are looking at 60 days and no prints my buddy got in like 80.

If you live in Chicago expect to get a board review no matter how clean you are. The sherif is challenging all from what I've read.

Oh no i live in the west suburbs, not chicago, so i should be fairly good right

Im an idiot. For some reason i thought you had to have your prints sent so i held off on the application. Until yesterday that i saw it said 120 days without prints and 90 days with....i received my certificate 5/14 -_- lol i couldve applied for it a month ago
But whatever. I JUST applied for the concealcarry, so lets see how long it takes.

Oh its also $153 fee if anyone was wondering. Just saying

I thought you were in Chicago because of where you wanted to get printed.

You'll be fine then.

when i got mine back in 2014 it took 3 weeks with prints, just did a change of address and it took a month and a half to get the new card with the right address, i guess every time you move the state throws you back into the law enforcement review to make sure that county is ok with you having a CCL

Oh dam lol are you carrying the compact versions at least?
I was thinking of Glock 43 or maybe a .357 with a shorted barrel.
Kinda like the idea of carrying a revolver instead lol

No I carry fullsize here. the glock isnt too big. The springfield is an inch longer. I love the glock tho.
