Since work has slowed down a lot and FINALLY gave me a good weekend off I am gonna head off to the two day CCW class nearby
After that I will head to the Sheriffs office to apply for my CHL, which I am absolutely certain I will have a short wait time since my name is very rare haha.
So in a week or so I will be a CHL holder yayyyy
I will make sure to keep you all updated, thanks everyone
Good luck, and keep us posted
Good luck! If it's anything like KY the legalese will nearly put you to sleep, but the end result is worth it.
Illinois is the same as Kentucky it sounds like. The most mind numbing legalese to the point of considering running from the room screaming. The only thing that saved me was that the instructors were smokers so about every twenty to thirty minutes we took a break. Take caffeine....or maybe an adrenaline shot along. In the end worth it but man it makes a long day.
8 hrs in TN. Took mine with my son. Made for a good day.
I can remember my CC class very clearly. Not at all boring. I didn't take one, lol. Not required for Veterans in Wisconsin. I just had to send in my proof of Military service with the application. When WI first got a CC law a little over 2 years ago the law read the class had to be a minimum of 4 hours but that was soon amended to no particular time limit as long as the required subjects were covered. I'm not sure what the class costs but I've seen ads for $50 in the Milwaukee area.
Good luck MadScientist & try to stay awake in class.

Have fun and enjoy and learn. If the instructor is good, it is a valuable learning experience, which is what it is suppose to be. From basics on firearms to handling and safety of firearms to the gun laws and to actual range shooting under strict control of the instructor who should let you know if you are doing things wrong, I found my course taught by a Deputy Sheriff in SC to be invaluable. I also had a fried chicken lunch with grits and veggies by his wife thrown in for free. All done in 1 day--hopefully 2 days gives you even more info.
Wife and I took our class 5 years ago and it was not boring. I'd been shooting since I was a kid and my wife was not exactly a novice either, but we both learned a lot. But then, we had a very good instructor! Just like when I was in college, a "bad" instructor can make the most interesting subject boring, whereas a "good" instructor can take rather bland material and make it interesting!

Good for you my daughter finished her classes and received her state permit and her Utah permit is on the way
Of course, they can't be certain that anyone that wasn't forced to learn the statute would actually do so on their own, hence the second part of the class.
I like all kinds of foreign guns.

I don't always use missiles, but when I do it's the Minuteman III LGM-30G
How did the class go?
Class was good, we went through a LOT including a very long legal brief. Instructor was extremely good and detailed with a lot of advice to take after classes which I will follow ie- talking to a good lawyer, lifestyle changes, etc. Today is when we spend lots of time on the range.
Like some recent threads have stated, there were few younger people that go to CCW classes. I was one of three in a class of 31 total that was in mid 20s. Everyone else was 30s+
Hey everyone the two day class was awesome. We got to train on shooting from cover and moving targets which made the 150 dollar class a very worthwhile investment. They finished off with a lot of great advice and further recommendations Tomorrow I will head to the sheriff's office to put in my application for my chl.
I definitely plan on taking more training including advanced pistol and classes at TDI which is fairly close to me. I plan on that during summer.
I will keep you updated on my progress :)
