Has anyone heard anything about the Illinois Conceal Carry renewal. I know the amount, but neither my gun dealers, gun range, or the State Police Officer I inquired has heard anything. My license expires in early 2019 and I would like to avoid waiting until the last minute. Thanks.

Yes we have about 99% of the information, I'm sure we will get 1 or 2 screw balls last minute. Here is a post about it on my website: http://www.alphakoncepts.com/concealed-carry-license-renewal-class/

Nothing new but we've had a few discussions about it.

Let’s say you could renew now so that would mean you would have gotten a 4 year license instead of a five year license.
Check back later in the year.

Will do. My only concern is that the waiting period for the renewal is the same as the original application, 120 days. It's possible that a license could expire before the classes begin in late 2018. Remember, we are dealing with the Peoples Republic of Illinois! :)

The info was helpful. I have a Master Sargent in the State Police in my congregation and he believes the 3 hour course has yet to be designed or in the early stages. If classes don't even begin until late 2018 it looks like I will be cutting it pretty close since my expiration is Feb 2019. Are your classes in Central Illinois?

I am told that in Illinois it is the same as the original application fee: $150.00.

I expect to charge in the ball park for $30 fort he class, but there are many variables which will actually dictate class price, when the time comes.  I expect to start classes 4th quarter 2018. The state re-application fee shall be $150.

the Firearm Concealed Carry Licensing act has a provision which states:

© A license is invalid upon expiration of the license, unless the licensee has submitted an application to renew the license, and the applicant is otherwise eligible to possess a license under this Act.

 

If you've applied and the license expires while awaiting approval, you should be good to go. Of course the officer might not know that, so if I were personally ever in this situation, I would carry a copy of the law as well as my pending application with me!

This is something that was written into the law. We instructors know what the state expects from us and we are required to tailor our curriculum accordingly. From the Illinois Concealed Carry licensing Act,

(d) An applicant for renewal of a license shall provide proof of completion of a firearms training course or combination of courses approved by the Department of at least 3 hours.
    (e) A certificate of completion for an applicant's firearm training course shall not be issued to a student who:
        (1) does not follow the orders of the certified
        
firearms instructor;
        (2) in the judgment of the certified instructor,
        
handles a firearm in a manner that poses a danger to the student or to others; or
        (3) during the range firing portion of testing fails
        
to hit the target with 70% of the rounds fired.
    (f) An instructor shall maintain a record of each student's performance for at least 5 years, and shall make all records available upon demand of authorized personnel of the Department.


Furthermore, the Illinois State Police have defined this information in their instructor curriculum application as follows...

 

3-HOUR RENEWAL CURRICULUM

1.    All  applicable  State  and  Federal  laws  relating  to  the  ownership,  storage,  carry,  and  transportation  of  a

interaction with law enforcement while transporting or carrying a concealed firearm.
2)

lot exception.
 ______
    b.  
The FOID Act 430 ILCS 65/1 et. seq.
 ______
    c.  
Relevant portions of the ILCS including but not limited to
1)
720 ILCS 5/7-1. Use of force in defense of a person**

 ______
    b.

I would like to think the ISP is thinking ahead to the big influx of renewals at the same time and is preparing. I still dont completely undersatand why it takes 90 days to get BG checked now.

Are renewals subject to the same 30 day LE objection window again?

Renewals, and even an address change, are treated like a brand new application.

I've already begun sending them email questions. I know it's WAY early but I'm doing that kind of as a reminder. Each time they reply basically saying "We'll know more later. contact us again."

Being illinois, nothing will be set until the last possible moment! Who knows it may take a court to make up their mind! Our state seems to have a terrible record for these kind of things.
