  1. I have been told to stay away from Wolff springs. Better to go with an OEM spring. For High Powers and 1911s, BH Spring Solutions is a great source.
  2. Until the poster is more forthcoming, all we can do is post the law. I would like to know if he has a Missouri permit and if he had it on his person.
  3. Absolutely! Although no person should need a permit to carry, having that hard copy on my person may keep me out of trouble. I never leave home without it.
  4. Link to statute quoted: (430 ILCS 66/40) Sec. 40. Non-resident license applications. (e) Nothing in this Act shall prohibit a non-resident from transporting a concealed firearm within his or her vehicle in Illinois, if the concealed firearm remains within his or her vehicle and the non-resident: (1) is not prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm under federal law; (2) is eligible to carry a firearm in public under the laws of his or her state or territory of residence, as evidenced by the possession of a concealed carry license or permit issued by his or her state of residence, if applicable; and (3) is not in possession of a license under this Act. If the non-resident leaves his or her vehicle unattended, he or she shall store the firearm within a locked vehicle or locked container within the vehicle in accordance with subsection (b) of Section 65 of this Act. (Source: P.A. 102-538, eff. 8-20-21.)
  5. You are correct. First link is from some law office Second link [ 430 ILCS 66/40 - 40 - (e) ] is the Illinois Concealed Carry act Within a vehicle – Out of state residents can carry a concealed firearm in their vehicles as they travel through. Illinois so long as they meet the provisions of 40 (e) of The Act (430 ILCS 66/40) Sec. 40. Non-resident license applications. (e) Nothing in this Act shall prohibit a non-resident from transporting a concealed firearm within his or her vehicle in Illinois, if the concealed firearm remains within his or her vehicle and the non-resident: (1) is not prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm under federal law; (2) is eligible to carry a firearm in public under the laws of his or her state or territory of residence, as evidenced by the possession of a concealed carry license or permit issued by his or her state of residence, if applicable; and (3) is not in possession of a license under this Act. If the non-resident leaves his or her vehicle unattended, he or she shall store the firearm within a locked vehicle or locked container within the vehicle in accordance with subsection (b) of Section 65 of this Act.

  6. I would add an agreeable like here!
  7. A single button, "Thumbs Up", would be my preference. An expression of agreement. I would likely use this in topics of interest I have no wish to reply to. Sometimes you guys have brilliant thoughts that require no further comment. It would be nice to acknowledge these without gumming up the thread. Any dissent should require further comment.
  8. I can’t answer your question… taking care of yourself seems quite important. If this gets you through this horrible time of grief better than other coping methods, you might give it a try and worry about the FOID/CCL later on. I can’t imagine what pain you are going through. Take very good care of yourself, and the rest of your family. I am so very sorry for your loss. Just thinking of it now is bringing tears to my eyes. Take care… Tim *After reading this link at ISP, I think the answer to your question is NO - It will not impact you FOID/CCL. It is possible that antidepressants, temporarily, in the face of extreme loss is not mental health treatment. It is just a tool that helps you get through this time of grief. https://isp.illinois.gov/TypesOfAppeals/FOIDMentalHealth
  9. Thats an opinion… I’m guessing he’s not even close to senile and just has a different point of view. It seems that SCOTUS has not yet declared that our 2A is absolute. There are limitations, which may continue to evolve, one way or another. I sleep better re the launch codes than I did a couple years ago…
  10. Magnetometers are commonly used at airports, courts and high security events such as a Presidential visit or Trump Rally. You basically remove all metal and walk through when the "Mag" operator is ready for you. They will often have a wand device to double check you if you the machine alerts when you pass through. Full body scanners are also used more and more frequently at airports. With these you stand still inside the scanner. A clip from an article touching on magnetometers and sensitivity follows. Back in the old days, before TSA, you could cover keys on your belt or a pocket knife with your hand and pass... if the sensitivity was set low. More than once my fanny pack has passed through image scanning with my pocket knife or Leatherman inside. You also might enjoy this paper... History of Airport Body Scanners.
  11. Yeah... there are current statistics that say 71% of the 17-21 crowd are ineligible to join the military. I'm guessing fewer than that remaining 29% actually do. When there was a draft... and you could not vote until you were 21... the "die for your country" argument was more valid. Today, not so much. When we were fighting for the vote at 18 and hoping not to be sent to Viet Nam, it was way different. I had a draft number but no one was called my year or the year before. I missed it all by a year or two but it was still a huge philosophical concern growing up. For the record, I'd have volunteered and hoped for the best rather than escaping to Canada. It was a concern. Perhaps the cutoff should be that those who enlist in the voluntary military are eligible to have guns at 18 and those who do not cannot... until they are 26? I honestly do not know how to improve this. That some could volunteer and possibly give their lives and all should be able to have guns just does not cut it anymore.
  12. … except that too many of the current crop of 18-20 year olds don’t seem to be able to handle the responsibility… at least without some sort of vetting. I’m sure you’re kids are OK. One of my nephews is not and should not ever be allowed to have guns, no matter how much I like him. I came to enjoy guns when I was older. There was no way I could afford one at 18 and I wasn’t interested. I had other more important stuff to spend my hard earned cash on. I honestly am not sure every 18 year old qualifies to own a gun, no matter what The Constrution says. Its possible there should be some hoops to jump through.
  13. Links to a story I worked on in 2014. Same training program/company as at the above link. CBS News Video 2014 CBS News Story TEXT 2014
  14. Stupid rhetoric comes from all sides. Opportunists often use protests as a means to create additional chaos as cover for theft, looting and other mayhem. It’s time to stop.
  15. Do not worry, guns are not ever going away. “Whatever it takes” … to stop people from shooting people In anger or out of greed or great stupidity. It don’t know what it will take… maybe a combination of personal responsibility and the easing of the burdens and ills of all humans. As to the we… I am self employed and work mostly with the three Broadcast Networks. I recently covered a Trump rally for NEWSMAX. That was a rare gig… They paid very well and promptly. I chastised a couple Trump supporters who liked me (because I was NEWSMAX) and yet were abusive to my colleagues representing other news organizations whom Trump had deemed Fake News. This kind of misinformation and rhetoric (from Trump) leads to violence and violent actions. We get this all the time from “those guys”. It is completely uncalled for. An abuse of humanity. I also had great conversations with a few other Trump supporters… encouraging an older couple to hang in there and stay for the show even though he was two hours late. They were getting tired after waiting in the hot sun all day long and about to blow him off. I kind of overheard them and stepped in to give them a better sense of when it if he would arrive. I hope they had a great time. The sound system was amazing… I’ve never heard classic rock played at such a high volume with such great separation between the speaker arrays.
  16. We covered Greenwood... I was there. We correctly reported the good guy with a gun. I was hoping the hero would not come forward. So far he has not. He needs to return to his life. If we didn't cover the various tragic mass shootings, there would be outcry that we were not covering them. Better that folks just stop shooting other folks... whatever that takes.
  17. Tell me what county you live in and I can make up a stupid derogatory name for it and maybe look into the corruption in your neck of the woods... or that red neck of the woods? We do ourselves no favors by being disrespectful of others. Chicago is a most wonderful place to live.
  18. I don't think it is responsible to put the protection of students in the hands of teachers. They are not security guards or cops, and most are not cut out for that in the same way as most cops probably aren't cut out for teaching Orchestra or Trig. They are not looking for Authority... they want to teach. With or without gun free zones, teenagers are gonna act out. Some, fortunately very few, have access to guns and acting out involves dark thoughts of mayhem, chaos, blood and death. In Naperville, back in 1973, a high school classmate acted out by dumping a pot of cold baked beans over the head of the music teacher. This took planning and forethought. I have no doubt that this miscreant would have been a school shooter in today's world. He was charged with assault and beanery. There will be no more school shootings when there are no more guns or no more schools.
  19. That is my understanding. If they did apply to us, the Cook County limit of 10 rounds does not apply to Chicago, which claims a limit of 15 rounds. Many retailers will not ship magazines above 10 rounds to Chicago or Cook. Some will not ship to Illinois. There is a false but longstanding bias against Chicago... including by some Illinois gun owners.
  20. Atonement. Wasn't the boycott of Springfield and the earlier boycott of S&W a really Karen thing to do? If you like a gun, for any and all applicable reasons... I think atonement has been achieved and you should buy one.
