PM updates/suggestions to a moderator (or use the "report" feature) How do I apply for an IL CCW Permit? Here is a step-by-step guide for applying online with illustrations (compliments of IC member and CCW Instructor cgs). Can I apply by mailing in a paper application and documents along with a check or money order? You must call the ISP Firearm Service Bureau and request a mail-in application. The FSB will pre-fill the application, you pay via credit card or electronic check, and then the FSB will mail the application to you to sign and return with a photo. What browser is required?

Digital image of recent passport style photo taken in the past 30 days. What other information is required? 1. Complete list of any other names you have used including maiden name for women. 2. Complete list of past residences in the last 10 years. 3. The usual gamut of disqualifying yes/no questions (e.g. Convicted felon) What forms of payment are accepted?
