  1. A student that had issues with the broken website last year until this February just got his permit. Applied 2/9 issued 6/9 In hand 6/18 (when I was informed at least) Processed in exactly 4 months. Better than I would have guessed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Are you sure? Unless something changed, the first thing that happens is the old cars are deactivated. So even if you find a missing one it is not valid. You just have to wait months for a replacement. I think that is what MollyB was referring to. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. OP here I still can’t believe this thread. Normally I post something and kill a thread. I almost feel dirty, that this is my legacy. I have a gift card to Walmart, guess I will have to stop in one and see if anything good is happening. Carry on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Did you need your original birth certificate or passport? Looking at the TN requirements on citizenship it looks like one of those is necessary. My partner (Ccw instructor) just bought a house outside Nashville and I am interested in moving to TN, maybe Knoxville area. Becoming a TN CCW instructor looks like a one page application, my NRA Basic Pistol Instructor certificate and $25, good for 3 years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Clinton was not the original source for this topic, it was matteson. Which closed several years ago when the new store in Richton Park was opened, so I would not really count it as a closure, just a move. Also just about everything in Matteson has closed or moved. I don’t follow this thread much, just check in once or twice a year and I am still shocked how long it has lived. Signed, The OP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Like was said, politics. I moved out over 20 years ago, my folks over 10, but my MIL still lives there. Some of the things that go on there (library controversy) could make your head spin. My wife keeps up on Orland Politics a bit, I try to ignore it. I have enough to worry about with the state and our own town/school system. Politics as usual. And IIRC the gun store/range was owned or operated my an OP LEO, or ex OP LEO, but my memory is a bit foggy on that one. And for those that don't know, the police chief's claim to fame was getting shot in the Regan assassination attempt. Cannot doubt his heroism for that one, just don't agree with his politics.
  7. Not sure how long you have been there, but many moons ago, when I was but a wee lad, there was a range in the small mall. Kohls was a sporting goods store where I rode my bike over to buy all my gun magazines and dreamed about owning guns and right down from it the gun store/range. New mayor and new politics killed it off. Orland hills police station was in a house on 94th ave, really just a house among other houses, before a large drug bust funded the new station by Walmart. I have even talked to some people who bought their first gun from the hardware store that used to be on lagrange by SW highway. Funny thing is according to the CCW map, orland park had one of the higher rates of issued permits in the state, as much or higher than my area down here in corn country.
  8. Orland Hills walmart does not carry ammo, local ordinance IIRC. Country Club hills does not carry ammo as far as I know. Matteson does, small/tiny counter, but decent supply during the drought, only place we found 380 last year. But they might have it in the store, not on the shelves, you have to ask and even then they might not find it for you.
  9. I have to stop in at this thread every once in a while just to check it out. 150 pages, 4472 posts. I never thought it would take on a life of it's own. I'm not sure whether to be proud or scared (I'm the OP). Back to your regularly scheduled program,. I'll stop back in at 300 pages. Matt
  10. Just got mine, applied 12/18 application #62. Manteno IL Now if they had just put the apartment number on the letter, glad my mail carrier can think otherwise it would have been lost. Matt
  11. Unfortunately I have had to add to the posted app, signs are showing up in the last few days, some just as I was driving around (I was looking for those that needed it like local bars). Even our Post Office has been posted with an IL sign since last Thursday. Posted in Manteno (60950) BP/dunkin Donuts at division/45 Shell at I-57 (southcreek Dr)- 2 gas station doors posted, but McDonalds Entrance not posted, share the same building, did not go in and see if there are signs between McD's and the Gas station side. Homestar Bank on Division Centrue Bank on Division All added to posted, I will be looking for more 'voluntary' posted locations, afraid I will be seeing more. We still have a few gas stations not posted, but no other banks. Matt
  12. Just to bring this thread full circle- I just got off the phone a little while ago with a student having issues applying for his Cary permit. He works for Walmart, loss and prevention and travels to multiple stores in his area. I mentioned the signs and he says- 'oh yeah, I put a lot of those signs up' Didn't think to ask then, but knowing the area he works there is a high probability he put up the sign that originally started this thread. Just found it humorous. Matt
  13. Could you please point me to the relevant threads? All that I remember seeing pertained to sign size, not changing the wording. Thanks, Matt
  14. Link to sign (pdf) posted in original (#1) post. Added here also for convenience- Walmart prohibited sign Matt
  15. Confirmed posted at Matteson Walmart. It seems that the sign is trying to allow customers to carry, but reminding employees and vendors that they are not allowed to carry, but I don't think the IL signage works that way. If an IL 430 66/65 is posted at all, then as far as I know no one can carry under the FCCA, Walmart cannot make up their own ru;es about it. And the sign is copyright walmart, so I'm assuming it was posted by walmart. I will try to upload/post the image I have later. Matt
