  1. ERNIE ARMS is no longer doing FFL but does sell firearms and ammo
  2. Im looking into purchasing a Ar 15 556/223 is it worth looking at a used unit and what should a newbie look for? Or am I better off going with a new smith m&p, ruger type as a newbie. Im looking to stay around that $700-$1000 price range.
  3. I also received mine Saturday the 19th. Showed printed since jan 31st The upper right shows CCL Mine also states in red card does not permit bearer to UNLAWFULLY carry or use firearms
  4. I truly don't remember if that question was answered in the class. I do know its a lot of info covered in 16 hrs.
  5. So my status went active. Does this allow my right to carry if I still have not received the card in the mail, and just keep the active status copy from the isp with me. Or am I illegal till the true card in hand?
  6. Updatd today from background check has been completed and sent to print
  7. applied for new ccl on nov 7 , status just changed from nothing to now in que for background check , this is with prints . fingers crossed it goes quick
  8. Thank you for the replies. I bought some meprolights from Eagle sports in Oak Forest and it was only 25 dollars to install since I bought the sights from them
  9. Looking for a gunsmith or hobbyist in the orland park/ tinley park area that could install new sights on my glock19. What is the going rate to have this service done? And do most do it as you wait , or drop and come back days later?
  10. Picked up a new xmas gift for myself a Canik tp9 elite sc and not sure if anyone has played with one yet. the trigger is awesome but i just cant handle the gun proper. i feel like i have the proper hold but its very flippy/recoil it comes with a 12 and 15 mag and of course the 12 round makes it even harder to hold . maybe i just need to get used to it but my glock19 and my mp9 2.0 compact i have no issues with just curious if anyone else feels the same
  11. i applied for my carry card today with prints lets see how long it takes my foid took 3/4 of a year
  12. Wanted to give props to William Armstrong and his business Alpha Training and Biometric Solutions. His class was 5 stars with his concealed carry and range qualification class.
  13. went to shoot point blank and seen they had some good prices on the stuff so i picked up a few hundred rounds of Ammo Inc by Jessie James. my S&W MP9 2.0 would not eat the ammo . it jammed the slide and went into no battery this was with the 115 fmj and the 147 hollow points i thought it was just that round tried 2 other times and still jammed. I then tried the fmj and hollow points in my Glock19 gen 5 and it took it all .. the 115 fmj just felt very weak compared to Winchester white box the 147 hollow points felt way over loaded. just sending a warning for the next person that is looking for ammo . I would stay away
  14. I'm in the Orland-Tinley Park area and I'm looking to take my ccl 16 hour training and hoping it can be done during the week after 5pm And if not then weekends. Who would you recommend? Thank You as always for all the help
  15. Picked up my new 19 and did a field strip and I was surprised at the amount of dirt with a new gun. I know glock puts rounds through the guns for quality checks but you would think they would re-clean them prior to boxing.
  16. Eagle Sports in Oak Forest has a very big selection of guns in store. .the website does not show all. Ammo is behind the counter and priced on the higher side.. As for service very pushy when looking at guns and i was looking at 3 brands and wanted to see each on there own and i was told by the sales person i only can see two and i dont have time to waist with a newbie. I walked out and wont be back
  17. Is there any decent box stores to hit for a iwb holster for a glock19 gen 5 . Im looking for a leather or a hybrid holster. I'm in the south burbs TInley Park area. thanks
  18. I was just wondering why some folks are so against giving prints and others no biggie. I know i was printed back in my teens so they have them on file. I feel if prints are given that may be as equal as a defense as no prints in a bad situation ? Lets hear some pros and cons please . Thanks as always for all the help from the group
  19. Not sure if joining the I.S.R.A or 2nd amendment helped, and being put on the class action suit on the ISP, or when I sent in a letter asking for a hearing. But I'm thinking it had too .
  20. I have been waiting since Feb 23 ,2021 and the good news I got a call from the ISP and the website just flipped to approved . AUG 19,2021 now I just wait for the mail the next few weeks.
  21. still nothing heard back from email and snail mail. I have also joined the Illinois State Rifle Association and Second Amendment Foundation as of last night ,and a Lawyer contacted me from a law firm David Sigale , and stated he will see what is the hold up and include me in the class action law suit .
  22. thank you Molly.. The letter and email were sent 8/5/21 we will see what happens next
