The standard fee in "gun-friendly" Texas is $140, although there are indigent and senior discounts, and a variety of other discounts for LE/military/etc. Remember that TX isn't an open-carry state either.
Does IL have an indigent discount?
(I don't intend to start a thread hijack, but TX has generally high fees for non-compulsory gov't services and permits, due to a culture of low state-government spending.)
