  1. I would think it should be the new card. I'm coming up on 11 months since I entered my CCL renewal.
  2. I'm going on 11 months (over 320 days), and my CCL renewal says the exact same thing as yours.
  3. Every gun store I have been in has requested a valid FOID card before you can handle any firearm.
  4. Last I read, they will be issued throughout 2022 to new applicants, renewals and to existing non-expired holders. Everyone is supposed to get the new cards in 2022.
  5. A little bit of grease on any area that slides metal to metal or plastic to metal, and a few drops of oil on anything that rotates, include the springs too. Do not oil the extractor or firing pin channel.
  6. Ok, nothing changes with private sales until January 2024. The current requirements are still in effect until then.
  7. A little unclear about what you are saying about the private sale FFL reporting. Here are the details that take effect 1-2024: The following additional provisions take effect on Jan. 1, 2024: • Requires person-to-person firearm transfers to be subject to National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) checks at a federal licensed firearms dealer or through online validation by the Illinois State Police using NICS. • Requires Federal Firearms Licensures (FFL) to keep the record of a transfer for 20 years. On the demand of a peace officer, transferees have to identify the FFL dealer maintaining the transfer record. The penalty for not doing so is a Class A misdemeanor. • Requires that those who receive a firearm in a private transfer to provide a record of the transfer to a licensed firearm dealer within 10 days. The dealer in turn must keep the record for 20 years and may charge up to $25 for keeping it. The recipient of the firearm must be able to provide the name of the firearm dealer maintaining the record for that particular firearm upon demand by law enforcement. Failure to do so is a Class A misdemeanor.
  8. You made a funny...lol. Seriously, you are one of the few that we have that can communicate with those mentally challenged policy makers.
  9. Ok, someone please answer this question. Why did they eliminate the expiration date? I can't think of anything other than making life more difficult for lawful gun owners.
  10. As I posted earlier, it's not just ammo sales that are affected; it's also online gun purchases. You must show the online seller a valid picture of your FOID and drivers license to purchase any ammo or any gun online. The online sellers most likely will just say NO MORE sales to Illinois if they have to check validity. I hope Molly gets on this pronto. I really don't understand the purpose of having no expiration date on the FOID card, other than to restrict purchases by lawful citizens. Also, I have a membership at Shoot Point Blank, and every time I use the range, I have to show them my ID and FOID card. If the card does not have an expiration date, that means they will have to run a check each time I use the range, and that's absolutely ridiculous and time consuming.
  11. Online ammo/gun sellers will not like checking the status of your card, so I believe they just won't ship to Illinois. No expiration date on the card is another form of GUN CONTROL and should be rectified immediately!
  12. Thanks for posting. Maybe my CCL renewal from mid February will be in the next few weeks.
  13. That sounds about right. In my opinion, unless great bodily harm is imminent, you can't do anything that involves deadly force. I guess you can take their picture with your cell phone.
  14. Here's a cut and paste: Though not mentioned in the statute, Illinois case law indicates there is no duty to retreat before using defensive force, as long as the person using the force is in a place where he or she had the legal right to be and is not committing a crime. There are several key words in this statute that need to be addressed. The first and probably most important is “person.” This is extremely important when it comes to using deadly force. I cannot stress enough that the concept of justifiable use of deadly force covers defending yourself or another and not your possessions. There is a misconception by many that you can use deadly force to protect your belongings. This idea is not true, no matter how valuable or precious your property is to you. The next key words are “himself or another.” It is legal in certain circumstances to use force, even deadly force, to defend another individual who is the victim of unlawful force. That other person need not be a loved one or friend; he or she could be a complete stranger. I have also put emphasis on the word “imminent.” “Imminent” means the unlawful use of force against you or another is either occurring or is immediately about to occur. The second paragraph of the statute starts with “however” and distinguishes between the right of an individual to use force and “force which is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm.” Deadly force can only be used if the threat is imminent and to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another. The law in Illinois also allows an individual to use deadly force when it is necessary to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony. Forcible felonies include murder, criminal sexual assault, robbery, burglary, residential burglary, aggravated arson, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated battery, or any other felony which involves the use or threat of physical force or violence against any individual. When You are NOT Justified If the forcible felony has already occurred, then use of deadly force is not justified. A lot of people are under the false belief that you can use deadly force in order to stop a person who has committed a forcible felony from fleeing the scene of the crime. For example, if you are walking down the street with your briefcase in hand, and someone forcefully snatches your briefcase from your grip and is running away, you cannot then shoot that person. Why? Because at the time you shot the person, the forcible felony of robbery was over. Justifiable use of force in Illinois relies heavily on whether the individual had a reasonable belief at the time force or deadly force was used. Every situation is different, and every situation has its own individual facts which must be considered as a whole. You have an absolute right to defend yourself in Illinois, but it is extremely important to understand the law and how it protects you and your family. Be diligent in keeping up with all the laws pertaining to self-defense by attending one of our informative seminars.
  15. That was the original extension, but a new one was issued that extends your FOID and CCL almost indefinitely right now. Ignore that old news.
  16. It was approved yesterday, so three days waiting.
  17. Handgun purchase on the 10-12. New FFL received it yesterday morning and ran check. Still pending as of this morning, bummer.
  18. My 8 month long CCL renewal shows an issue date, but has the expiration date as Covid. I would not feel comfortable with what your expiration date is showing.
  19. I noticed there is no specific thread for CCL renewal times. Anyway, I'm going on 9 months now for CCL renewal, no prints.
  20. I think you just need to attend the second day of the 16hr class. A quick call to a CCL instructor should clear that up.
  21. And Cook County still has a 10rd limit on the books. My FFL, just a few weeks ago, said it was still legal after the CCL act. I didn't want to argue with him.
