  1. CCL renewal is going on 8 months now. Recently got the Utah renewal in just over 2 weeks. Easy process, and it cost $20.
  2. Walmart no longer carries any pistol ammo (other than .22 LR) or 5.56/.223.
  3. It's almost like there's political coordination here or something. That certainly couldn't be the case.
  4. Agreed. Let them show how that useless law does anything to curb crime. That's their job, since that's what they claimed the law would do in the first place.
  5. I usually check out wikiarms and then check it against our vendor list to see who is GTG. https://www.wikiarms.com/group/9mm If you see a price you like and the vendor isn't on our list you can also check their website for shipping policy and if they don't say they won't ship to Chicago you can always give them a try and see what happens. Worst case scenario is they refund your money or deny the transaction. I've found a couple good vendors that way. If you do find someone good, please let us know so I can update the list. Thanks! Good info for shopping around.
  6. Target Sports ships to Chicago Here's the cheaper stuff... If you join Prime Ammo you save a little bit more, they send you a gift near the end of your annual membership and shipping is always free no matter how small your order is. Good deal if you buy lots of ammo. I like the Speer Lawman 124 and 147 which runs around .20 per. Thanks a lot! That place looks like a winner.
  7. I'm looking to buy bulk 9mm (ideally 147 grain, but I'd get 124 or 115 grain if priced right). I can walk into a big box store right now and buy 100 rounds of brass-cased 115gr for around .16 each (plus tax). Is there anyone out there who can beat that right now (free shipping, specials, etc)? Shipping would (obviously) be to a 606 zip.
  8. They have not responded to the information that I have provided them after almost two weeks and a follow up email, so I'd take them off the list of companies who will sell to the city. Lucky Gunner is on the list of Lost Causes (down below the list of confirmed shippers). They wouldn't listen to me or even to Valinda, so as far as I'm concerned there's really no more point in trying. Sorry, I quoted wrong, I wasn't trying to deal with Lucky Gunner, but MidSouth Shooters.
  9. That's not the City of Chicago. They have not responded to the information that I have provided them after almost two weeks and a follow up email, so I'd take them off the list of companies who will sell to the city.
  10. Corrected link is as follows: http://library.amlegal.com/nxt/gateway.dll/Illinois/chicago_il/municipalcodeofchicago?f=templates$fn=default.htm$3.0$vid=amlegal:chicago_il I forwarded that on to MidSouth, and will let everyone know if/when they respond. What can we do about Lucky Gunner spreading this misinformation, and why would other companies be using them as a legal source instead of just looking up the current municipal code, which is pretty easy to do?
  11. So Mid South just wrote me back, and apparently, all of these sites are all aggregating their data from Lucky Gunner, because that's literally what she sent me, a PDF that is from Lucky Gunner. It's in reference to Ordinance O2013-6015 which has been off the books for I believe 4 or 5 years. Lucky Gunner needs to get leaned on to stop spreading false and incorrect information about what laws are not on the books, and haven't been for years.
  12. Their website won't allow me to order any ammo with a city address. I called and asked why, and that's what the woman told me. I have ordered from them before, and as I said, I asked what law they were referencing, and she said she didn't know. I won't hold my breath, but maybe they'll get back to me and it gets straightened out. It would be a shame to not be able to use them, and I won't shop with anyone who won't sell me ammo that is perfectly legal for me to purchase.
  13. Just tried to order from Mid South who I had ordered from several times in the past, and they suddenly can't ship to me based on "local law" but could not specify what law they were referring to. I asked for them to have a representative follow up and I'd be happy to set the record straight with them, but it looks like for now, they're not shipping to Chicago anymore.
  14. Wow, congrats on finally getting your rights restored. Glad it worked out, and sorry to hear it was such a pain.
  15. On demand of a peace officer such transferor shall produce for inspection such record of transfer. that said it's likely the officer will be cooling his heels on the porch as I get them The law does not state "immediately". I keep mine off premises for this purpose/protection.
  16. This. If successful, the attorneys will get a ton of money and the class members will get a coupon good for a few bucks off on a hat at the ISP gift shop. Note that the class consists of people who applied for a FOID card between 3/15/2015 and 10/15/2017. Definitely not all applicants. I wonder if that covers renewals. I want my dollar!
  17. Just spent a couple of minutes on the phone with them, and said that "they" (the ISP) is stating that Chicago is on the list of places where ammunition sales are restricted the last time that the manager looked (in November of 2015). I said that I'd be happy to do the legwork and get that clarified for them, and the guy on the phone I talked to seemed receptive, but indicated that they go by the most restrictive laws on the books that they can find, for their own safety. So if the ISP is actually indicating to dealers that Chicago is restricted for ammo sales, how can we rectify that with sellers that seem to be reasonable? I'm going to shoot an email to them at their recommendation Send them the attached PDF, which is the new 2014 ordinance. Page 24 of the PDF (page number at the bottom will say 22) has the old ordinance listed, shows it having been struck out and amended to regulate sales of guns at gun shows only. This is the law for over two years now. ISP is giving people old info, or else the manager hasn't checked as recently as they say. chicago-gun-shop-ordinance.pdf No response as of yet.
  18. They were one of the first sellers I contacted after the new law was passed because I had bought C&R guns from them in the past and liked doing business with them. They said they were going to review it and it may take a while, that's the last I heard. Their Terms page still says they'll only ship ammo to Chicago and Cook if you're a FFL dealer. You could try contacting them again if you want.
