Carry Permits???

Star Carry Permits???
Who has their permits? How long did you wait?
I submitted for mine about 2 weeks ago, I opted out of the fingerprints so I expect to wait the full length of 120 days, but that's worth the wait to me. Dodgy damn Illinois...

Took about two months with prints but I was in the first batch that went out. Could be faster or slower now. Went really smooth overall. ISP really did a good job.

Two months is not bad at all! They have tried to make the process as difficult as possible..

Was always aware of my surrounding before, nothing really changed from that point. Overall nothing really changed except for a new belt and few new shirts. Big Grin

I'm going to apply in the next few weeks with prints. I'm hoping to have it by end of September. Till then, I'll be spending more $$ at RDA for their ammo.

With prints you should have it sooner than that, at least that's what I have been seeing so far.

I took the course in January and got fingerprints shortly after. Applied online early February. In March, I got two letters from the ISP - 1. the TCN Number didn't match my fingerprints (their error; quickly resolved), and 2. they said I was missing the 16 hours. When I reviewed the certificate, there was a box that was unchecked (missed that, but Really? Bureaucracy I guess.) which I quickly checked and resent. Apparently the clock resets in this case because I just got my card last week. The first two times I called for status, they were "clueless" and unwilling to help. The third time someone else told me the guy who reviews these was out sick but he'd review mine the following week. I got a call a few days earlier than expected saying I was good to go and the card would arrive w/in 25 days.

Now I have to actually think about actually carrying now....a whole other lifestyle change which will take getting used to.

Nice to know its on its way right?! Big Grin Like I said, they were making this as difficult as possible. Glad to hear you got it sorted out!

RE: Carry Permits???
I just saw that also! So you do your digital ID and most of the application with the ISP on the phone, then they mail you the application so you can fill out the felony questions and attach a picture, and you mail it back to them. That should be really time consuming.

Well, kudo's to the State police to give us another option. My only concern, is what will go wrong with this process.

We applied in the first batch of applicants. Submitted on Jan 4 and received them a few days more than 60--don't recall any more.

Whichever Friday in March the first mailing was, we (Sharz96 and I) go them late the following week, so we were probably in the second batch mailed. We sent prints, all done with Red Dot.

RE: Carry Permits???
So I applied on June 18th and status is still "under review". Does it take at least 30 days to get to "approved status" ? I'm still expecting at least 60 days total turn around but just wishful thinking.
