    Thanks, but this seller charged an additional 3% credit card fee, and here is a Gunbroker fee based on a $1500 sale, so $1100+ is very correct: For example, a $1500 item would cost: $250 times 6% = $15.00 $1250 times 3.5% = $43.75 Total = $58.75

    The seller would get $1100+, but that's not the point. The point is there was a reputable buyer that was willing to pay well over $1300. after shipping taxes, and FFL transfer fee.

    It all depends on what you are selling and buying. Here is an example of an auction today for a desirable used CZ75 polished stainless handgun. It sold for $1200 plus shipping, tax and FFL transfer fee. CZ 75B High Polish, Rare Discontinued, 9mm, Stainless Steel - Semi Auto Pistols at GunBroker.com : 933190230
  4. I should have said, additional polishing on a factory polished stainless handgun will absolutely increase the value. Taking a dull brushed stainless factory handgun to a high gloss might lower the value, only if it is a collectable.
  5. Nonsense, whoever wrote that is an idiot IMO. Also, you can always return the bright finish back to a duller satin finish with minimal unpolishing.
  6. Hi, I'm in Orland Park, and I am interested in the ammo, if it is available.



  7. Well that would never happen at Shoot Point Blank in Mokena. Your gun has to be cased anywhere outside of your shooting lane. The back tables are for reloading magazines, stacking targets or similar items. Any exposed gun has to be left on your enclosed lane table and pointed down range. I can't believe other Range USA locations (Point Blank) do not operate in exactly the same way that I see in Mokena every month over the last several years.
  8. The CZ slide stop is a wear item, and should be replaced at 5000 rounds IMO. However, the new CZ Shadow 2 slide stop should be replaced every 3000 rounds because of the newer designed frame. A few of the early Shadow 2's (not very many) had the frame cracking where the slide stop pin ran through, so CZ removed that frame material in their final design, and that created more flexing of the pin. The round numbers are my estimate, but there is plenty of info out there on the forums.
  9. That's an interesting point you brought up. Law enforcement can run your card number if they feel like it, but not having an expiration date just adds another level of work for them in non-serious situations.
  10. Interesting, my FOID had two years left, and was extended another eight years from the same day my renewed CCL was issued. I only renewed my CCL. I was surprised they did that.
  11. Based on my recent experience, I would say two weeks or so to printing and mailing.
  12. Final update: USPS informed delivery is showing my renewed CCL will be delivered later today. It only took 386 days to process and get it to me....😮
  13. USPS informed delivery is showing my renewed CCL is being delivered later today. It went active 2-28-2022. It only took 386 days.
  14. I was told by an employee that the original Shoot Point Blank name was too aggressive.
  15. Good question, I'm following the thread. I will be receiving a new FOID/CCL soon, and my old FOID is still good for two more years, so I don't expect a problem just yet.
  16. Different Illinois agencies have different results. In late February 2022, I received a renewal letter from the Illinois Secretary of State, and it took only 11 days to receive my new drivers license in the mail.
  17. Wow, that's pretty fast considering I renewed 2-2021, and mine just went active on 2-28-2022, same day as yours . That was 5 months quicker than mine, so that email you sent must have worked.
  18. 🙂 Another CCL renewal update: Status: Active Printed Your card is valid. If your card was recently issued, it is on its way to you. Please allow time for printing and mailing. Please contact our office if you have not received the card within 45 days of the issue date. Now I wait for the mail. Oh, they also renewed my FOID for 10 years to 2032 (I didn't request a FOID renewal), and my CCL is 2-2027, so I received a FOID renewal and an extra 10 months on my CCL since I renewed my CCL in 2-2021 and it expired in 4-2021.. Not bad IMO.
  19. It's moving along now: Your submission successfully completed the background review and has been sent to await printing.
  20. Wow, her renewal was not a year old like mine is. I was happy an hour ago just to see my status has moved to background check, now I'm jealous of her renewal time, oh well.
  21. 🙂 Finally, I received an email this morning from the ISP stating a status change: We have completed our initial review of your submission and have determined that all necessary items are present. Your application has been moved to the background review queue. This CCL renewal is just over a year old, 3hr training certificate sent 2-2021 with no prints.
