  1. I was not expecting so many replies. Thank you all so much and I'm glad to be here! My father has a FOID and there are no restrictions in the county I or he lives in other than the standard Illinois restrictions. But the whole situation just had me thinking and I watched some YouTube videos and it makes you question the Integrity of the common gun safes, let's just say the ones that can be had for $500-800. I cannot afford no fancy $5,000 safe either but we are looking into getting an alarm system now. The safe I have has been bolted down and hidden as much as possible in a usually locked room since the day I've gotten it. I would definitely keep something here in case the situation ever presented itself where I needed a firearm but I do want to get what I normally don't use at the range somewhere safer than here since we have Prowlers in the neighborhood. All the information was very helpful and I really appreciate all you guys who took time to reply!
  2. Well, that's walmart for ya. Most gun shops would accept it. I'm not sure what the big deal is because I just flash my foid and it's good, like sometimes it don't even leave my hand. But I stopped bothering with ammo at Walmart. I walk by and see 22lr sometimes, always 12 gauge and various rifle rounds but guess what, you can't get anybody over there to help you for the life of you, unless you're lucky of course. Every time it's wait 10 minutes, wait 15 mins, walk around looking for somebody, oh nobody here has a foid, oh we can't find the key. It's a bunch of BS so I stopped bothering and if I were you I wouldn't even worry about getting stuff from Walmart anyway, even though their prices are still normal.
  3. Hi, this may be a silly question but my friend just moved and we're both excited about it and he wants me to come stay with him for a week, kind of breaking in the house so to speak, he lives by himself at the moment. He does not have a FOID card, but I do have a FOID. Would it be all right if I brought one of my firearms with me while I stayed there for a week? I do not have a ccl if that matters but did recently apply. I'm just wondering if I could bring a Firearm with me and keep it in the room I'm staying in. If it matters any I have a cheap gun cabinet that I can bring with me. Thanks
  4. As of about the last 4 weeks, no. But if that happened 3, 4, 5+ months ago, you would have been the luckiest person in Illinois. That's still a very quick turnaround time. I hope they (ISP) keep this up. Welcome aboard!
  5. Just an update. Brother in law received foid card yesterday. Applied February 24th. Original thread I posted is titled foid/misdemeanor question.
  6. Btw, I am speaking in general and not directly about your case. Just upsets me, people have foid cards (rightfully) for sometimes years, own many firearms, then isp says nope a few years down the road after issuance and yanks it over a past issue..
  7. Awesome. Always like reading stories like these. But my question is why do they even issue Foid cards, just to revoke them? Can't they see this stuff before they even issued one?
  8. I sent Molly a message just now asking about donating. If anybody can tell me sooner if I would be able to use a prepaid debit card on here to support Illinois Carry I would appreciate it. Thank you
  9. Applied for address change on 3/12, active 9/11. One day short of 6 full months...
  10. I wonder why they are so backwards. People just applying are getting approved Within 60 days and then you have people like me simply putting in a address change back in March and still waiting, not to mention renewing, that seems to be the hardest to get done in an timely fashion.
  11. Yeah it seems you're probably right but it's strange because I've been checking recently and it only said submitted and span but I checked it yesterday and actually saw the other options for the first time. I was hoping they finally put it through since I actually got ahold of somebody to speed up the process.
  12. Hi everybody, I'm still waiting for my address change to go through, Thank You Molly B. Quick question, I did the inspect elment and now it is showing qc verified and approved but it is not in bold, only submitted is highlighted in bold but I checked on monday and it did not have qc verified or approved next to submitted, although it is not in bold would it mean my card is almost approved?
  13. Thanks for the fast replies and thanks for having me on board! So I could possibly be waiting another two months, if not longer? This is absolutely ridiculous. Makes me want to pack up and move, among other things making me feel that way. I can't do anything right now and I'm not happy about it since I was expecting maybe 60 day wait at most and in my mind I was thinking that was generous and I would receive it sooner than that, since it was supposed to be a simple address change. I can't even buy ammo at this time. My foid has/had been active since 2015 (not counting this address change situation) and back then I remember getting it in exactly 4 weeks to the day (28 days) from the time I first applied and they took my payment to the time it was issued and in my hand (I also confirmed that on their website). It expires in 2025 and I hope things are sorted out by then. I think I'll try first thing in the morning Monday and just do that daily until I get through. All the times I called have been mid afternoon since I'm at work during the week but Im going to have to risk making the call at work, this is far too long of a wait and I have not recived any response via email. Thanks
  14. I created an account because I'm looking for some answers. Instead of starting a new thread I figured I would just comment on this one I seen. How long does it take for them to process an address change with the foid card? It's been over 4 months and I'm still under review. Can't get ahold of anybody whatsoever in any way shape or form. Has anybody been waiting longer than me? I can't believe this...
