    New menber

    My name is Ron and I have been waiting a long time for someone or some group to stand up to the state of IL.

    I am trying to decide if there is a way I can get started with the training. I realize there are probably going to be many things come up to try to stop CCW.

    I also think that once there is a go ahead it will take for ever to get into a class at that time.

    Any comments are welcome

    Ron, IL.

    Welcome from Portland, TN.
    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -

    Hi Ron.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    Welcome from Wisconsin, Ron! We're all pulling for you guys to get a sensible & not restrictive concealed carry law. I'm hating to have to go around your state when I go south.

    Welcome from the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. With any luck you guys will rejoin America pretty soon, and be able to arm yourselves to protect yourselves and your loved ones. Gotta be tough, knowing that you can't effectively respond. Probably made for a lot of gun knife fighter huh? LOL Again, welcome.

    Hello, Ron, and welcome from Missouri to this great forum! Good people and LOTS of info here.

    Since you are new to this handgun, self defense arena, do persist in taking some good instructional classes. I also recommend you check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor, who has recorded training sessions in Judicious Use of Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparation for Home Defense, and What to Do After a Shooting. Just Google his name and these topics and the YouTubes should show up.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
