The status below will probably surprise no one as it has sadly become the norm, but I will share with the community anyway:

 

I applied for IL CCL on 7/20 w/o prints (Cook County), and the application is still "under review". Today is 121 days since application.

 

Cook County

Applied w/out prints on 7/20

Active on 12/21

Applied without prints 7-26-20. Checked yesterday to find rejected as they didn’t like my picture. Uploaded a new one right away. Reeeeaaalllyyy hoping to not have to wait several more months.

Wow, it took ISP almost 5 months to tell you they don't like your picture? I am now worried about my pic because I took it with my phone and the lighting wasn't the best. I thought they needed something to compare with the pic on the drivers license.

Moved to Illinois in July 2020.



Applied for initial FOID on 7/28/20.



In two days it will be 150 days (5 months). Spotless record, no MH issues.



Called ISP 2 weeks ago, they said it was moving through the process. No other information given except they did acknowledge they were using the 7/28/20 date as FOID application date. I asked because I also applied for CCL with fingerprints on 9/14/20.



Contacted State Rep and sent ISP an email this week. Awaiting reply.



You'd think fingerprints would help and speed things along.

I think mine was more likely I had lived in Turkey overseas. Additionally, I lived in AK, VA, GA, and WI. All within the last 10 years. Still, it shouldn't take over five months.

I lived in Izmir Turkey from 1978-1980. Dad was an officer in the army at the Nato HQ. Sure gope that doesnt delay anything. But not for sure how they would know that. LOL

Expired in Feb but did not renew until Aug because I work out of state a lot and couldn’t find a class when I was home. Looking at the FAQ on the ISP website one reads that I can carry as I submitted my renewal the other says I can’t because I expired prior to 9 March. I sent an email to ISP asking for clarification but have not heard back so I sent on to my Rep and received the below.

Thank you for taking the time to reach out to our office regarding your issue with ISP. I am contacting my legislative liaison with ISP for a status on your request.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

I don’t know if it will do anything to get my license any sooner, but it would be nice to know if I can legally carry in the state I live in instead of just the others that I work in.

Since you applied separately the applications appear to be handled separately. At one time they wouldn't even start processing the CCL until the FOID was issued, which is why it's always recommended to apply for both simultaneously. Their IT workflow leaves a lot to be desired.
