    The seller would not get $1100 so you know someone who is going to list a firearm for less than 10%? There is also an advantage to accepting credit cards which adds value on gunbroker, with GB fees and CC fees you are not getting $1100. You would be lucky to get $1k.

     

    credit cards offer protection to the buyer. 
     

    best of luck with your sale, seems to have sat around a while, clearly to expensive and my offer of $900 seems fair.

    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:

    1. $250 times 6% = $15.00
    2. $1250 times 3.5% = $43.75
    3. Total = $58.75

    Yes but if you are the seller you would get around a grand. There is other examples selling less than 1k and one going as much as $1600.

    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.

  3. 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.

    Hi all,

     

    if I wanted to polish some of my stainless guns to a high finish almost nickel how much does this truly hurt the value? I was reading online you completely remove the value and collectibility?

     

     

     

    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.

    You’re allowed to fondle you firearms outside the range at the tables behind the range at Shoot Point Blank (aka new name)

    The wife and I went there to check them out. Sitting at a table and watching peeps shoot. Two guys come out with three range bags between them. Sit down and proceed to lay out four handguns and fondling them and pointing then everywhere. One guy points at the check in/ rental area and says “check out these night sights”.

     

    We got up and left as fast as we could. And haven’t been back nor will we be going to those facilities ever.

     

    When I hear guys complain about a range and the strict rules they enforce, I have to shake my head and then we read these almost every six months!

     

    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.

  6. 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.

    Not having an expiration date on the IL CCL, I suspect sometime soon, states that honor the Illinois CCL, will cease honoring it. Glad I have a 10-year Florida nonresident license.

     

    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.

    Hubby and I received cards in today's mail.  We renewed on 5/2/21 (no prints).  My old card expired 5/23/21.  Expiration on portal is 3/22/27.  Five years from the printed date.

     

    I had contacted my state senator back on February 14, they checked into it and told me that our renewals were in the final stages.  However when I checked on 3/22 (coincidentally the printed date) the portal was still showing "We have received your submission and your payment was successful. We have not yet reviewed any aspect of your application. It is in the verification queue."  

     Your FOID expiration should now show 3/22/32.

     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.

     

    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....😮

     It's moving along now:   Your submission successfully completed the background review and has been sent to await printing.

    🙂 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.

    🙂 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.

    Yes I know quoting my own thread is wrong!

     

    Last evening as stated around 8:00pm this e-mail went out.

    Just now as I was attempting to fill my belly, I was interrupted by an e-mail alert on my iPad.

    Wow, yes you know where this is going. I’ll just copy the base of the mail here.

     

    Good morning,
    Thank you for contacting the Illinois State Police. Mrs. Elliott's CCL application has been reviewed and approved. She will receive a new card in the mail in approximately 10 business days.”

     

    Directly from the office of the director.????? Wow.

     

    I’ll be back to update in 10 days. All this time with no information, no contact and no movement. And now it went from 0 to done over night! Color me amazed.

     

     

     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.

    I was able to talk to a representative from the ISP about the issue, solution, and a way to potentially monitor the situation.

     

    Issue:

    The overall issue is two fold. One, is the indicator on some cards may say "Y" where it should say "CCL". This was a programming error. Issue two is that on the bottom of some cards (where the FOID "cardholder" also has an active CCL) the wording on the bottom of the card states: This does not authorize the carrying of a concealed weapon. This is incorrect. This issue was caused by the use of an "incorrect card blank".

     

    Solution:

    This ISP is currently reviewing previous cards issued. If it is noted that the cards have one or both of the issues (for FOID/CCL combined cards) the ISP is going to reissue the cards. This process may take some time. After the cards have been printed, the ISP says to allow 30-45 days for mailing.

     

    Potential Monitoring:

    As the cards are going through the "reissuance process", you might be able to monitor some of the progress. If you go to your ISP online account, you might note that the print date (Of the CCL Card) has changed. If this date has changed, it should signify that your card will be reissued, printed, and mailed to you. Once again, it may take 30-45 days to mail. (For a real life experience, my CCL says it was printed on 2/14/2022- where (my renewal) was printed in August, 2021. I am still waiting from my new card in the mail.) 

     

    Recap/ Suggestion:

    I had an issue with my card. I am lucky enough to live in somewhat close proximity to one of the ISP kiosks. The representative was not only helpful but extremely knowledge able about all of the moving pieces and she gave me an update on the situation. She stated that this may impact several (many) cards, and was hopefully that the ISP would communicate more, to a larger audience,  as to an update and the number of cards impacted. With any luck, the ISP should be able to rectify the situation without any further intervention from the "cardholder". If,

    after an extended period of time and you do not see any action, you may need to reach out to the ISP to remedy the situation.

     

    Good luck to all who have been effected!

     

    Thanks for this update. I'm still waiting over a year now for my CCL renewal, so maybe my new card will be correct whenever they decide to look at my renewal.
