  1. Paraphrasing Chance the gardener... "I like to drive". I haven't been on a plane for a few years now and I do not miss it. If I had to fly, overseas or something, no problem. I generally find the TSA folks and all others I encounter to be quite pleasant and often interesting. There is no place I currently need to go to which requires the speed and extra hassle of air travel. The journey is often as pleasant as the destination...
  2. It is the next attempt to "eliminate guns" modeled on the Texas law to "eliminate abortion". A blatant attempt to skirt the law. "If it works in Texas..." It will not stand in Texas and it will not stand in Illinois.
  3. I don't know about holster work or shooting while moving... I was at the Yellowstone Lake range this summer (at the end of a kayak trip) and loved it! Lots of families and women when I was there, and a fellow introducing extended family teens to shooting. There are no Range Officers or fees. You are on your own. Everyone was cooperative when I was there. Bring a good broom and dustpan for cleaning up. Maybe buy an annual WI State Park Vehicle Admission Sticker as your contribution ($38) to the scene.
  4. Illinois Carry works great with my iPhone using Safari. No app required.
  5. Texas seems to be on the "substantially similar" list. I think you need to apply for a new non-resident license which will cost $300. If you are lucky, your previous training will be sufficient. No matter what the ISP Portal indicates, I'm pretty sure your FOID and CCL are no longer valid as a resident of Texas. If you receive a non resident license, It becomes void should your state no longer qualify as "substantially similar". Obviously, you need to do the work and find these answers on your own.
  6. Hang in there Molly! You guys did the right thing.
  7. There is no firearm specific reason. I didn't know the deadline had been extended. The TSA guys always smiled when I present my passport rather than my IL DL. A passport fulfills the requirements of Real ID and was available before Illinois had Real ID. What I really want is a combo DL-Passport-LTC card... International, of course!
  8. I am pretty sure that neither the Airlines nor TSA will ask to see your FOID at check-in or baggage retrieval... and of course, your IL CCL is a perfectly fine and legal substitute for your FOID should you need to show your FOID in Illinois. Follow the rules and get there really early! Bring your Illinois Real ID or Passport. I like the passport card... fits in my wallet so I always have it. Costs less than Real ID.
  9. I see no difference. Lee wanted to keep things status quo. So did Arnold. Both chose based on personal interest.
  10. Or Robert E Lee... since his name is in the news, of late.
  11. It's a 48-2-50 Senate. Though King usually votes with the Democrats, I can see him being a Republican on this vote. And of course, Bernie!
  12. When did this happen? What size magazine did he have? How did he get out of being charged? Chicago has a 15 round limit on the books. Before McDonald it was 12. It would not surprise me that CPD might not know the law... or even what Chicago's magazine limit is/was.
  13. Smoke33, I’m finding the site far easier to read in Safari on my phone (and Firefox on the PC) than it was before, especially with my login saved properly. I haven’t used Tapatalk in years… not feeling the need to do so now.
  14. If I have disposable cash, I will probably pick up the Girsan and the new improved Tisas Zig 14 should they actually be available here. If they are as nice as my SS Regent BR9, both would be nice additions. I still need to find a pre-war model, a ‘60s Pre-T and a T-series, a nice C series and something from from 2010 or after to complete my “decades” collection. An Inglis, Arcus, FM and Ishtapur are probably on my list, too. And a something from the Belgian Congo would be awfully cool. I’ve also heard about a polymer framed version from South Africa… so many more yet to find.
  15. The Tisas Regent BR9, rebranded as the Zig 14 (or was it the other way around), is indeed a parts-compatible clone of the High Power. I expect the Girsan will be nearly identical as both companies seem to supply the Turkish military. The stainless steel model is particularly nice. It is finished far better than the FEG and Arcus clones, possibly better than some original High Powers. It has a really tight fit. MSRP for the Girsan seems to be the same as the Tisas. I would love to find some of the Tisas "special" models!
  16. Well... that was super easy. I won't have to worry about forgetting this for four years now. Thanks!
  17. I like the multi year options and will likely re-up for a four year term. I haven't figured out where my expiration date is... may I re-up early?
  18. Iowa does this. Far easier with a smaller population and fewer districts.
  19. KENDLLB360, A judge can indeed do anything he/she wants to do. Can they get away with it? I sure hope you have a better landlord now...
  20. I don't know anything about this topic. It may be worthwhile to contact the folks at New Leaf, part of Illinois Legal Aid. Because they are attorneys actually dealing with weed expungement... they can probably give you real answers. https://www.illinoislegalaid.org/new-leaf/weed-legal-now-can-i-clear-my-record
  21. I am really not certain what it is called... it is quite good! Googling "CCW app" brings up "CCW - Concealed Carry 50 State" in the Apple app store. This is the one I referred to. On my iPhone the icon is CCW. I believe "Posted" is a companion app that lets users add businesses that do not allow CC. It resides within the CCW app. CCW also has " Gun Vault" featuring some handy range tools and a place to keep info on your firearms... including rounds used and last cleaning. Googling "Posted app" brings up the same suite.
  22. Therrito: I'm just nitpicking terminology: Reciprocity requires that a state have an agreement with the other state... "we will accept yours if you accept ours". This is why Florida does not recognize the Illinois CCL. While a bunch of other states recognize the Illinois CCL as valid, Illinois does not accept the CCL of any other state. Illinois does not have reciprocity with any state. A far better tool than the USCCA page is, IMO, the phone app CCW developed by one of our IC members. I think you can search the app store for your phones OS to find it.
