I am on day 29 of waiting for my license. However, I have been working on this for over a year. The cost for an Illinois CCL is considerable. I thought it would be interesting to compare total costs.

Concealed Carry Holster – two versions of Alabama, $107
Illinois Concealed Carry Training / NRA Personal Protection in the Home - $350
Ammunition for training - $86
Gas to get to training location - $50
Hotel at training location - $342
ISP Application Charge - $150
