I know this is an old thread, but I've been experimenting with presenting my CCW instead of my FOID card largely due to reasons already mentioned in that I don't like having all my eggs in one basket that I could (god forbid) potentially misplace or lose. Additionally, I just like carrying around less stuff.
 
Locally I typically only buy ammo from Wal-Mart, and I've yet to be to a Wal-Mart that took my CCW and instead insisted on seeing my FOID card. I'm curious if anyone has had the opposite experience. I don't think they're trained at all, when I tried to argue with one of them about it they just told me, "Look the cash register is asking for your FOID card."
 
Welp.

Ah, the old raiseing of the dead thread..........
IF, and this may be the problem, if you are actually presenting your CCW " Carry Conceal Weapon" instead of your CCL " Carry Conceal License" or FOID, that may be your issue!
If pulling your CCW and either pointing it at them or simply handing it to them, would more than likely result in a denial of service OR a huge free batch of ammo from the kid behind the counter!

And on a side note, while I'm here, this pony hasn't been beaten to death on these forums, but it does have no head anymore........

Just bought ammo today at the Gander Mountain in Springfield and only showed my CCL. We also spent about an hour at the gun counter and my CCL was fine there as well.

Just had a dealer tell me the law only applied to ammo buying with an FCCL and that I had to have a FOID for a gun. Sheesh.

Was that somewhere near you? I bought my XDs and Ruger LCP II from Dunn's with my carry license Last fall.

An individual FFL.  He back-pedaled from the statement when I got there.
