  1. And they already let me know my file has been updated!!
  2. I just re-upped mine and am getting ready to send them to the ISP.
  3. Hey, all, it is November, and the end of the year will sneak up on us quickly. If it is your year to re-up your NRA creds, get it done now and send in the proof to the ISP.
  4. I had an FCCL student let me know yesterday that he got his license. It was at about 6 weeks with prints.
  5. MollyB, have you heard anything about MO and another nearby state (can't remember which one, maybe KY) that is considering rescinding its recognition of the IL FCCL? I heard this rumor from only one source, so I do not want to be unduly alarmed.
  6. This is what I have from last year: Instructor_Docs@isp.state.il.us They were very quick to respond and let me know that they updated my file.
  7. Those are on the handouts, available on the DVD. Yes, but I have them on my computer now and have a bunch printed out for classes. I just wanted to know where to tell folks to amend their handouts.
  8. What page numbers are these located at: Appendix A Add to number 4: (iv) are carried or possessed in accordance with the Firearm Concealed Carry Act by a person who has been issued a currently valid license under the Firearm Concealed Carry Act; or Add to number 10 (iv) are carried or possessed in accordance with the Firearm Concealed Carry Act by a person who has been issued a currently valid license under the Firearm Concealed Carry Act.
  9. I was able to get my stuff updated for class tomorrow!
  10. Per the National Forest Service, state law controls on this issue: http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5066182.pdf Shawnee National Forest specific: http://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/shawnee/recreation/hunting It sounds like they want firearms unloaded and cased when in recreational areas. Not sure if this is a mandate or a request. There is a number you could call to ask. For National Parks, the NRA has a good webpage: http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/fact-sheets/2010/firearms-regulations-in-national-parks.aspx Here is a line copied from the first link: The second exception to this law allows people with a concealed weapon permit to carry a loaded, concealed, handgun either on their person or in their vehicle while on National Forest. This does not apply if the person is engaged in a primitive weapons season or chase only season. But, as always, state and local laws apply. http://dnr.state.il.us/law3/Documents/ConcealedCarryQnA.pdf
  11. And I got a response from them less than two hours later that confirmed my credential update and also that I had cancelled my curriculum number (you all remember that confusion, I am sure!). Good on the ISP. I applaud them!
  12. I just sent them my new ones, good through the end of 2016.
  13. A big THANK YOU for posting this. I personally didn't even think about this. You would think the ISP would have given us a heads up. On second thought why would they want to help us out even a little. Dagnabit. +1 on this. I certainly would have never known otherwise and I would have gotten nailed. I planned on waiting until the day my NRA certs expired before renewing them and I sure wouldn't have thought to notify ISP. I think if you renew them ahead of time, they will still extend them to the 2 years past your regular expiration date. When I paid my fee for my new Personal Protection in the Home instructor status a few months ago, they re-upped all of my credentials and extended the from December of this year (the regular expiration date).
  14. Mine were good through Dec. 31, 2014, but I have already renewed so I may as well fax them the new creds.
  15. I would say that's a going forward thing right? fingers crossed Correct Are not all these new rules a "going forward" thing?
  16. I carried all over Springfield March 4-6th - all the restaurants, gas stations, shopping. Yes, the list is extensive and burdensome but let's not mislead folks into thinking they cannot carry anywhere. Keep in mind the moms and dads in urban areas can now carry while taking their kids to and from school, passing through dangerous gang territory. People all over the state can carry all day long without finding themselves in a no carry zone. But we will keep in mind and keep warning everyone that "gun-free zones are killing zones". Exactly. The battle for regaining rights keeps going.
  17. I am sure it is different up north, but down here in southern IL, there really aren't a lot of restrictions other than the state-mandated ones. I think it is almost a non-issue.
  18. I have taught the CLIC curriculum four times now. It is well done and easy to do. I add a module on how to carry (holsters, etc.) and the mindset we take on when we decide to carry. Everyone seems pleased with the class. Good job, everyone! Yes, the law part is dry, but folks really are more engaged by it than I think they thought they would be. Most people really do want to know what it says. We always have fun with the frizzen pan slide regarding what constitutes an unloaded muzzle loader!
