    Well my weekend class was cancelled.

    Well we just got in about 2 hours ago from camping. Right after walking in the phone rang and our IL CCW course was cancelled. The instructor hurt his back. I hope he heals but I'm a bit disappointed that we have to reschedule our class. Its going to be a bit of a pain as most of the classes are Sat/Sun, being a pastor Sundays are hard to take off. Just happened to be that I worked our vacation around the class. Oh well we've waited this long what's a few more months.

    That is definitely bummer! One of my stepdaughters lives in the "Peoples Republic of ILLinois" and she said there is a long waiting list for classes where she lives.

    Crap, that sucks. I would be highly disappointed after the anticipation.

    Too bad. Don't give up. I would come to visit to cheer you up but your state doesn't honor West Virginia permits.

    Bummer. Well, not much can be done with a physical injury. Better him than you, as the good book says.

    Well I was able to reschedule for Aug 3rd.They could of gotten us in earlier, but this way it allowed for us to get someone to fill in for me. So it all works out.

    From one Pastor to another, congratulations on your decision to CC. Also it's great that your state now allows people to carry. Hopefully you'll get your class and then your permit in the near future. (Maybe you could get a cardboard cutout of yourself, place it in the pulpit, then have them play a tape of one of your best sermons. That would allow you to play hooky on one Sunday so you can take the class)

    We fortunately have a lot of options here for CCW Courses. I called and spoke to most of the reputable ones and narrowed it down to 2. One was $75 3hr course NON NRA approved so I asked the guy how many others were on the schedule for that day as they would cancel if there weren't enough, he said none! So I took the second option and probably the best one. $125 7hr course NRA approved and they serve you lunch... I saw the list and there were plenty of people. I didn't want to be canceled on again and again with my money tied up.

    Hope everything goes well for you this time around.
