Bravo.Whiskey replied to Bravo.Whiskey's topic in Illinois FOID Application, Renewal & Appeal ProcessThank y'all for the replies. Really appreciate y'all takin the time to help a brother out. I typically don't buy from gander but their liquidation price on the Browning BPS 12 Gauge is pretty damn good right now especially with the rebate Browning is offering. I usually buy from Sportsman Outdoor Superstore online, they've got the best prices I've found. Can't believe how hard it is to get your hands on a gun in this state. What's worse, is it's almost more restrictive for military members! Once again though, thanks y'all!
All, Thanks for taking the time to read this post and comment. I am a resident of the state of TN but stationed at Scott AFB in IL. I have a FOID card but have never been (nor will I ever be) a resident of this state. So the problem I just ran into is that when I tried to purchase a gun and the salesman asked for FOID and my drivers license, they have two different addresses on them. Gander Mountain told me they would not sell me the firearm without a copy of my orders however, I've purchased two guns at other stores in IL and neither had asked me for that. The manager kept telling me that it's a state of IL requirement but the state of IL issued me a FOID card so they have all of my military information. So my question is, is he right? Am I going to be expected to show my orders every time I want to buy a gun or is this a case where he was just misinformed? i would think a valid military ID and a FOID card that is only 3 months old would be enough
