Yea I'd definitely be careful putting too much money down on anything yet. Until the ISP approves everything some of those classes might not even count. Like cls said you can find a lot of people on Illinois carry that arent gonna charge much more than 150 if they get approved. I had some buddies try to do a class already and they called and quizzes the place before goin and all they said is they were hoping to be one of the approved places and if not then maybe the class would count toward some of the training. To me that's kind of a gamble, especially if they charge very much. It'll be interesting to see what happens but hopefully they come up with something sooner than later. This is Illinois tho and they're not all that quick about anything.
Illinois carry is a pretty good resource tho if you haven't checked it out before. If anything I'd be trying to get some of the already approved stuff done that will count toward some training time, the hunters safety course would be the easiest probably and don't think it cost much if anything.
