Hi Lisa. I really like your priorities and your mission. Do you know if I have a CHL in another state, whether or not I have to get a different license in Missouri? I haven't asked anyone at the gun range yet, however, I figured you would be on top of this. Keep up the good work, and God bless you!
I carry a Glock Model 27. It's a sub compact in 40 caliber. Easy too carry and is really accurate for it's size. As with all Glocks, it's easy to maintain, can shoot virtually any ammo and is easy to clean.
I have found that a Glock 26 in an ankle holster is the best all around defensive weapon. Light, compact and a lot of firepower particularly if you add a 15 round magazine.
My 5 shot S&W 637 will always work and with hollow points it will definitely do the job. Plus I have a Crimson Trace lase on it that is great for low light conditions.
click on comments, type your message then hit post.
And by the way. I carry any of the following: Glock 30. Glock 36 with small mag and two extended mags. Sig 1911 Compact. Smith and Wesson SW99 (not so much). Glock 21 on occasion. My favorite is the Glock 30 except when wearing loose shorts or swimming trunks. Then it's the Glock 36. Remember that we are all an experiment of one.
I use a Smart carry for deep concealment. Works great and carries crotch height just to left or right of the jewels. Need to adjust when driving. A few bumps in the road and you would be singing soprano. Google them. I have a ton of holsters and use the one that my clothing will cover 110 percent with no printing. Love the Smart carry. Wears well with almost anything including shorts. Good luck.
Chicago proper, yeah, absolutely. I'm out Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn way and I'm actually surprised by the amount of businesses that DON'T have placards. Good for them.
All very true. But around Chicago it may take a while for the businesses to understand. To many know they must kiss the Chicago Machine's tail end to be able to stay in business.
it sounds like you've been using your best weapon to protect yourself and your family all along.. your head. now the law has opened a new avenue (finally) and it's never too late to exercise even more caution. bravo to you for working in a bad area for all those years and never having a problem. I hope you got the firearm/self defense training and continue to keep your wits about you. I remember clapping out loud at work (quiet environment) when I came across a news article that Chicago was going to start issuing permits. my guess is that once the geniuses in DC see that all hell isn't breaking loose like they thought, they might change too (but probably not) but congrats! take care, keep calm and you know the rest

I got my Washington permit in 5 days. I feel for you all.

This is from the Illinois Gun Pros Blog (the people I took my CCL course from) - When Will First Licenses Be Issued?
February 11, 2014 by Illinois Gun Pros
This is the big question on the minds of all the Instructors, as the Instructors were allowed to apply Dec. 18th as part of a “beta test.” After about 30 days, a great number of Instructors noticed that their online application status changed from “Under Review” to “Approved.” There was even an issue date and an expiration date.
However, within 4 days, the statuses all changed back to “Under Review” as this was apparently just a de-bugging.
Then, in the first days of February, many instructors got an email saying that their licenses were approved and would be mailed within 30 days. However, a couple hours later, another email was sent telling them to disregard this “test.”
Rumors abound, but most of us believe that no licenses will be issued until the first batch of instructors receive theirs, a full 90 days after their application date.
And yet, Wisconsin can do theirs in 21-days.
