I did not see Bud's Gun Shop in the updated list, but FWIW they shipped shotgun ammo to me here in the Chicago city limits, zip 606xx. I sent them FOID and DL.

I'm hesitant to add them as a dependable seller of ammo to Chicago as they've previously been really adamant about not sending anything here. If someone can get in touch with them and confirm they are good to go on shipping all ammo (except 50 BMG and AP) to people directly in the City of Chicago (not to an FFL, not to another address outside the city, etc.), then ok.

As far as I can tell from their website, Ammunition Depot, located in FL, also DOES NOT sell ammo to Chicago or Cook County, but does to other IL residents with a FOID -> https://www.ammuniti...ing-and-returns. I didn't check to see if their policy changed, but that's what is on their website as of today.

Understood. They did ship to my door via Fedex in the city of Chicago, but if others have had issues leave them off the list.

To Test if Bud's Gun Shop will ship to Chicago, I placed an order on Wednesday 6/20 and Fedex delivery is scheduled for Friday 6/22.  This is from Bud's Illinois restrictions:Illinois State Restrictions: Customers must possess a valid Illinois FOID (Firearm Owner’s ID) card to purchase firearms or ammunition anywhere in Illinois. Alternately, persons possessing a valid Illinois Concealed Carry License may present their valid license in lieu of the FOID card. It must be faxed or emailed to us prior to shipment. FOID cards are sent to the same place as FFL dealer information (ffl@budsgunshop.com / Fax 800 804 5569)

If true, then this would be a complete 180 for Bud's. Let me know when your order arrives safely and I'll add them to the list!

Anybody ever order from LAX Ammunition? So far I'm not impressed. Three weeks and my order still hasn't shipped.

I ordered some 308 Win from them once. They were not fast, but it wasn't three weeks. They send me lots of spam, too.

OK, I exaggerated. 19 days. The longest I ever waited on an order. They  had a good price on 8mm and everyone else was out of stock. Not likely to order from again.

I know they've been flaky before but Midway USA just accepted my order for some shotgun ammo, which they haven't done before. They should ship tomorrow, I'll let you know if they do!

Ammo was delivered today. IMHO Midway is now GTG.

Howdy neighbor. I was just in 60625 this weekend picking up Baker Miller.

Interesting that Midway has not accepted a shotgun ammo order in the past. Did you have other ammo in your cart? I've ordered ammo several times from there without issues, including 12 gauge and .308. I'm pretty sure I've also ordered .45 Colt. If you try to order 9mm, .38/.357, .22, .45 ACP, and something like .25 ACP you get the error. It's whatever was called out by name in the Chicago ordinance from a couple of decades ago. Notice .40 S&W isn't listed? It was invented in 1990. That's how old it is. The ATF book of all laws still includes this ordinance, so that's what Midway follows. I believe the state's attorney is responsible for updating the ATF. Pretty sure she isn't likely to any time soon...

I successfully ordered .32 S&W Long from them around the time I started this thread. Other people have reported to me they placed an order for the same ammo, only to have Midway cancel it. They are so flaky about which ammo they will ship here and when that I really think it's best to leave them where they are. It is very possible that they're going by the ancient ammo list circa 1984(!!), or at least some of them are, and who knows what the others there are doing.

 

Glad to hear they got you your shotshells, chislinger.

Apparently they still won't allow the old "saturday night special" handgun rounds. But they seem to allow everything else now.

Yes, they still have that policy based on the ordinance that was repealed long ago.
