I understand that if I become a IL. resident I must have a FOID. Currently I'm a legal resident of MT and I have no intentions to change that.
For the pupose of firearms ownership in IL. will I be requiried to get a FOID? Does living in the state establishes legal residencey for the purpose of firearms ownership? As a resident of MT do I even need a FOID?
Since I do not live in IL right now how long to I have, if needed, to get a FOID after I move there? Can I bring my firearms into the state without a FOID?
I have been living in California for the past four years and their laws, as fouled up as they are, exempt the Military from most of them. Does IL do the same?
Three weeks ago I contacted the IL State Police through their website asking them th same questions and I have not recieved an answer yet.
Thank you Ed

Yes, Illinois State Police is a crap shoot. Some are very helpful and well informed, some are the exact opposite on both counts. When I first moved back here, I called them to ask what I was supposed to do between the time I actually became a resident and received my FOID card since I already owned weapons bought as a resident of Florida. The guy was like, "uhhh...hmm...that's a good question. I don't know if I know the answer." His answer was eventually, "just be careful". lol
If you do want an official answer, I suggest calling the ISP instead of emailing them. 217-782-7980 M-F 8:30 to 5

I'm a Master SGT. Like they say I work for a living.
When I was assigned at Ft. Bragg, NC in order to buy a firearm I had to give the dealer a copy of my orders assigning me there and a photocopy of my military ID card. I know that works for the ATF. I'm wondering if IL has a provision like that?
