  1. I got a second FOID/CCCL card in the mail today. This less than a month from when I got a previous one. BOTH have the indicator as CCL, so it is not part of the misprinted group. The X-Number is different. I do not know why and I do not know why I got a second one! Anyone know What the hey!!! is up with this?
  2. 11 Mar 2022 My CCL/FOID was once again in the mail Anyone know why they sent a 2nd one less than a month after the previous one? Both are printed correctly and there was no explanation why the new one was sent.
  3. To answer a couple of Q's 1. the 1911 is not for carry. I carry a P365. The 1911 is because I have always wanted one. 2. I have prints on file for the CCL 3. I have only gotten instant approval once, about 6 years ago! The rest always seem to take longer but have been within the 3-day wait anyways. This one took the extra day. 4. Yep, did not think that FTIP is not NICS.
  4. AR's are all fun until you have to clean them and get the sand out of the lower. 🙂
  5. Not sure where to put this question, so I'll put it here, but if it should be moved hopefully an admin can do it. In the 4th Quarter last year I submitted my re-qualification for my CCL. I recently received it on the new combined FOID card. Also my FOID was renewed so it now is good to 2032. All of this is great then last week I went to buy a new handgun. If anyone cares it's a Sig Sauer 1911 Nightmare in 45ACP. My background check took almost 4 days to clear. Why would it take so long? The FOID is supposed to be constantly monitoring my background, I had just recently had the ISP do a background check to issue the renewed CCL. So why, Why, WHY would I not get instantly cleared? Very frustrating!
  6. I got one of the new cards today. There is no additional number(s) at the bottom of the card. There is at the top though. Along with the FOID number and an indictor that for me says CCL
  7. The Indicator says CCL the red wording at the bottom says "CAUTION: This card does not permit the bearer to UNLAWFULLY carry or use firearms"
  8. I live NW of Chicago in the burbs out that way. FWIW the postmark on the envelope shows that card was mailed 14 Feb from zip 62703, which is Springfield.

  12. Ditto for me too! I had just checked yesterday and saw the Renew data as COVID-19 The interesting thing is that for the FOID it does not show, at least yet, a new one being printed with the new expiration.

  14. Today I got a notice that the application for renewal has entered a new phase, Under Review. The explanation states: 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.
  15. My card expires 3 March 2022. I had done my renewal training last month to get ready for the renewal application. Then in yesterday's mail there was a letter from the Ill State Police advising me it was time to renew, so I log on and saw the magic renewal button and followed the instructions.
  16. I have a scanner so pdf. But if all you have is a phone take a good picture as the jpg format.
  17. So who is about the best stocked these days? I was out an Marengo and it is ok, but a shell of its former glory. I've heard Gat Guns is really low on stock, I have not been there in a while. I am in the market for a revolver and was wondering before I just start randomly start looking if there was a good place to start that has decent stock.
  18. 60 business days since I applied for renewal was today and my status is still Under Review.
