    Yes, it's in Cook. (idiots for building there) Are they selling the neutered capacity mags or the standard (10+) capacity magazines with the guns?

    Like I mentioned, a semi-auto pistol with a detachable magazine is not automatically illegal... And they're not currently enforcing the law anyhow.

    I see some companies/stores are offering pre-registration for classes. Is anybody signing up yet? A local gun shop is charging $300 for the class with a $50 deposit.

    ISP hasn't released anything yet, while some of these places may very well be approved to be instructors when they do, the list won't be released until probably Sep. 7th.

    As for pricing that seems awful high. A lot of the trainers on Illinoiscarry.com are talking about trying to keep the training nearer $100-150 for the full 16 hours. A bit cheaper if you already have credit for up to 8 hours from approved prior training.

    Not knowing the specifics of your local place, if that $300 includes the application and fingerprinting fee it's not a bad deal. I would also hope that the $50 deposit has a refund clause in the event they are not on the initial ISP trainers list.

    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.
