    Did they ever agree on any reciprocity with other states?

    sort of

    Illinois can carry in:
    AK, AL, AR, AZ, IA, ID, IN, KS, KY, MI, MO, MS, NC, OK, SD, TN, UT, VT

    but for now we only recognize CCW permits from Hawaii , everyone else can have them in their cars but not on their persons

    I just can't believe I'm reading about Illinoisans getting CCW's. Cali is seeing movement. I wonder about NY, NJ, MD and a few others.

    Careful, the 1 or 2 people that have Hawaii permits might see this and think they can carry in Chicago.. ;)

    Edit: good point, out of state Hawaiian CCW permit holders still have to apply for a out of state CCW license , all two of them lol

    one of my friends is a Police Officer in Chicago ( the suburban police department had too long of a wait)

    I asked him what did he think of CCW licenses being issued?

    he said " everyone in Chicago carries a gun, the only difference is a small portion will be carrying legally":rofl:

    I had a conversation with a long time CPD officer while waiting in line for some of the best Italian beef in the city. He said something very similar.

    I asked him how most cops felt about it. He told me that most of the old guys liked the idea and the new guys liked it. According to him it was the 30 and 40 something's that had issues with ccw.

    Come visit the Free (for now) State of Indiana, CCW works just fine here.

    Well one day, hopefully sooner than later they will be reciprocal with MI (and all the other states). Then I finally won't have an excuse on why I wont take the wife back to Chicago....

    A few people started getting their cards in the mail on March 1st, mostly in the area near Springfield where they were mailed from. Mine shows an experation date of 2-27-2019 so it should have been mailed out also, just far enough from Springfield to take a couple days. So, I figure on Monday and I will be waiting on the mail to be delivered. Jim.
