I've finally decided to get my CCL, so I've been looking at where to take the classes. There a quite a few places in McHenry County to choose from with a fairly wide range of prices. I'm struggling to find reviews and recommendations, though. What reviews I can find are more about the gun shops and not the classes themselves. I couldn't find a pinned thread, or at least an active one, here on Illinoiscarry about experiences with instructors.
Maybe I'm thinking too hard about this, because the current instructors have been vetted out simply through the passage of time, but I'd like to know I'm getting a good value for my money. I'm not necessarily looking for actual recommendations, just an idea of what to look for so I don't short myself in terms of knowledge and experience.
