  1. The class is basically a very shortened version of the 16 hour initial class. After doing the 30 round shooting deal, we went to a "classroom" The instructor went over every area they covered in the initial classes, only it was way consolidated. There was a handout that covered the topics and he took questions before the class ended. It was quite extensive with great and important stuff gone over and the questions asked covered some weird situations that "could" happen. All in all, I'd say it was well worth the money and always good to get a refresher. The new card has no dates, looks like a FOID, but has a CCL box which is checked indicating I'm good to go. I know the exact date of mine from looking at the ISP site and they may have included the expiry in the envelope with the card??? Sorry I couldn't offer more info, but that's what I got.
  2. I'm not even remotely concerned. Surely the powerful ISRA will see to it that this never passes. I can't get purple to work, so /SARC Thanks Molly B and Mauserme
  3. As far as I've seen, it has been corrected. The initial release of the pistol had a terrible problem with primer drag, causing a lot of malfunctions. I saw multiple examples of this on YouTube by big channels. I haven't hear of any issues since the initial release, but then again, I rarely watch YouTube vids which feature Sig anything. For some reason, they seem to get a pass from consumers for releasing defective firearms. It almost seems as if they use their customers as test dummies for their new stuff. I've never been a fan and I'm still not. The whole deal with any firearm is like anything else, buy what you like and enjoy it. Many of my neighbors rushed out and bought P365's when they came out. Hey, if they're happy, I'm happy for them.
  4. Thanks for the posts Molly B and Steve. Here we go again. SHEESH
  5. My wife and I went to vote at about noon. Not crowded, but a steady stream. As we were leaving our daughter and son in law were walking in.
  6. Of course we're all free to vote for whom we wish. Did I somehow portray otherwise in my post? How does a vote for Darren help JB? I'm very curious to hear your simple logic. Thanks
  7. The P320 was deemed not drop safe right after they came out. The P365 had terrible primer drag issues right after it cme out. And now, the P322 has terrible leading issue in their barrels. Seems to me that SIG could use a lot more R&D and rigid testing on new products prior to releasing them.
  8. Voting for Darren, easy choice for me. He's been Pro 2A all along as far as I can tell.
  9. Remember 2016? The night before the election Hilary Clinton was 90% to win across the board. Oops!!!!!!
  10. I took my CCL renewal class in June. Then I waited until the day my CCL was expiring to do an online renewal. My wife asked why I waited until the last minute. I told her, I've been busy. LOL The look on her face was priceless. Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow? I did print out my ecard, so I got that going for me.
  11. Thank you so much, The king. I really appreciate the quick response. John
  12. Hello IC, My CCL expires at midnight and I have a question for you. First, some background. We took our CCL renewal class back in late June. The instructor was very emphatic that when applying for the renewal, that the info on height, weight, eye color, etc., etc., all be the exact same from either my current DL or CCL. My problem is, I can't recall which one he emphasized. I looked at the class handout, and there's nothing in it covering this. I sent the instructor an email, and he just sent me another copy of the handout. I'd asked specifically in the email whicj card I should use, but I think he overlooked that. Can anyone help me out. I need to get this done today. I know I shouldn't have waited until the last day, but that's just how i do things. Thanks in advance for any help John
  13. We sure do live in interesting times. I think of them as a full time nightmare.
  14. boy howdy, Illinois sure is awesome at running simple programs. LOL I was chatting with some guy in YT comments. I had mentioned more government regulations are never and have never been good for any person, product, or business. He asked me why I felt that way about government regulations? Rather than carry that discussion any further, I told him my laptop battery was dying and I'd get back to him when it was charged again. That was 2 months ago. LOL Oh and i don't even have a lap top. You can't pull one over on this old codger.
  15. At this point, after getting no less than 50 pounds of junk mail from all these hacks, I'm 100% undecided. Unless I see someone I really align with on most issues, I might, dare i say, stay home.
  16. Oh boy, now I'm scared to shoot my AR 550 steel targets with 9MM. Those Blazer Brass 115 grainers are probably going to go right through those steels like a hot knife through butter. LOLOL My goodness, where does Joe come up with this drivel??? Seriously?
  17. I've been writing emails to the 10 RINO's all morning. Also contacted Joe Manchin and Synama is next <sp?> The key is to be respectful, to the point, and articulate. Even though they aren't our Senators we need volumes of respectful emails and polite phone calls going out to them. The more of us that reach out, the better our chances of getting one or two of them to vote no. Let's go, it can't hurt.
  18. Mauserme, Thanks, i sure hope you're right. We both know you've forgotten more about this stuff than I'll ever know, so I feel much better right now. Hope you're doing well my friend.
  19. From: The Truth About Guns By John Boch Date April 9, 2022 This bill appears to be a hugely damaging one to every Illinois AR owner. Worth a read, it's not good. This could be a huge hit for us, huge. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/illinois-ghost-gun-ban-bill-passed-in-dead-of-night-appears-to-ban-the-sig-p320-and-p365-unserialized-ar-uppers/ Sorry I missed the slips, I wasn't around.
  20. @solareclipse2, I 100% strongly agree with you, sir. No question about that.
  21. Our Meijer store use to be packed when we moved here. Every time we went, they were busy. Over the last several years, for whatever reason, the store is like a ghost town. I haven't been there in a while, so I don't know if they've posted that blue gun sign. I have to go now, just to check it out. I always carried there, as there were no signs.
  22. I agree, I stopped going to public ranges 5 plus years ago. I enjoyed shooting at my local public range. I met some nice people there and got help from some really amazing pistol shooters as well. then one day, a group of three guys came in, and what I saw was 100% clowns. Totally unsafe practices, clowning around, muzzling themselves and others. Yikes, that scared the heck out of me. The guy who was running the range that day called the three of them out over the PA system. He banned them for life and didn't allow them to go back to get their gear. He did that himself. It gets real intense, real fast when you have unsafe clowns on a gun range. We belong to a private club now, and I've only witnessed one group of clowns in the bay next to us. I walked over and respectfully asked them to tighten things up or leave, as we didn't feel safe. They tightened things up STAT, thankfully.
  23. The very first day I saw an FRT in action on YouTube, I thought to myself, AFT coming for these right quick. I've never fired a full auto, but I've watched a ton of videos. I know zero about about how full auto works. That said, the Rare Breed company is using the technical language of how their trigger functions in order to fight the AFT. I think it's likely a losing battle. Even if Rare Breed is 100% correct, who has the money to get into a full blown legal battle with the government who can print all the dollars they need? These kinds of triggers test the waters. They're also pretty useless in this time of super high ammo prices. I've never desired one of these, a binary trigger, or a bump stock? That doesn't mean I think it was right to ban bump stocks ot from a technical perspective the FRT. However, like someone else said, i love my family nd our dog too much to be the test case. Glad i stayed away. Meantime,, just out of curiosity, I went to Rare Breeds site last night. Unless I'm missing something, they're still selling these???? That seems like playing with hot fire (pardon the pen) to me???
  24. Irvin is a huge anti 2A guy. Don't be fooled by his nonsense. When i saw his commercials, I thought, hey I really like this guy for governor. Then I did my homework. He's right up there with the mayor of Highland Park and Oak Park as far as the anti 2A stance. I use to workout with the mayor of Oak Park back when I was still working in the city. Back then he was not mayor of OP yet and a restaurant owner. I'm sure he still owns multiple very good restaurants and is still a very nice guy, but he's also very anti 2A. I was disappointed to learn that Mayor Irvin was so anti 2A. I'm gonna blow with the wind and follow the pack here as far as who gets my vote for governor. As long as it isn't JB, and we can get a 2A friendly candidate, I'm good to go.
