I was outside Crook county and stoped at a mega sized retail store and purchased some quality defensive carry .45ACP ammo. Was asked for FOID specifically not my CCL.
The story there is ISP told them they need to see FOID as some CCL holders have not renewed FOID and let them expire. But that the story I was told today.
Somebody there is confused. If the FOID is invalid, then the CCL is invalid. On another thread someone stated that the ISP sent them notice that their CCL was suspended because they have let their FOID expire.
This is from section 70 of the FCCA.
(h) A license issued or renewed under this Act shall be revoked if, at any time, the licensee is found ineligible for a Firearm Owner's Identification Card, or the licensee no longer possesses a valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card. A licensee whose license is revoked under this subsection (h) shall surrender his or her concealed carry license as provided for in subsection (g) of this Section.
This subsection shall not apply to a person who has filed an application with the State Police for renewal of a Firearm Owner's Identification Card and who is not otherwise ineligible to obtain a Firearm Owner's Identification Card.
If someone was trying to get away with something, said person could have an expired FOID, and a revoked CCL still in hand that still looks good by expiration date. The clerk for an ammo purchase is not going to know that the CCL is no good. So checking the FOID makes some sense for the seller.
