  1. So... FOID Renewal went Active: February 4, 2020 I have USPS Informed Delivery and it shows arriving today (Feb 8, 2020). Yep, guess what was NOT in the mailbox; I checked the Informed Delivery box "I did not receive this mailpiece.". Hopefully, it was misdirected to a neighbor, and they will get it to me. Unbelievable!!!! YES! USPS successfully delivered my renewed FOID on Feb 10, 2020!
  2. FINALLY!!! Now, the snail mail wait begins. FOID Renewed: October 9, 2019 FOID expired: January 1, 2020 FOID Active: February 4, 2020 Calendar Days: 118 Business Days: 77 (Seven Holidays) I had submitted the Online FOID Inquiry; sent two emails (requested mail receipt/read notification)… no response. Hundreds of attempts on the “Customer Non-Service” phone (217-782-7980), which is basically useless, unless you just want to hear a recording of … “We are experiencing a larger number of calls, please try later. Goodbye.” Surprisingly, on January 23, 2020 I actually received a second recorded message… “All lines are busy; please hold for the next representative.” Half hour wait time and a live person came online; verified that it was QC Verified and noted that there were five holidays during my Review period (guess I missed a few); And, no idea what an expected approval timeframe would be. Holidays: Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day.

  4. I called and was told I still had 2 weeks for the 60 business days. 1 day for each holiday made Jan 2 as 60 business days and I called about Jan 3 Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk What number did you call that you were actually able to speak with a live person, and not just listen to a recording?
  5. I renewed mine 2 days before you and it expired on Jan 1 also. The assumption that a week off for Thanksgiving and a week or more at Christmas. 60 business days should be about now, but, today is another holiday!!! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk Don't forget a week off for New Year's, also.
  6. FOID expired January 1, 2020; Renewed October 9, 2019, still “Under Review”: have submitted Online FOID Inquiry; sent two emails… no response; “Customer Non-Service” phone is useless, unless you just want to hear a recording of … “We are experiencing a larger number of calls, please try later. Goodbye.” Based upon the 1- week each vacations for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, I guess I have another week until I hit 60 ISP Business Days.
  7. Yes.And if logged out can you see that same post? Doesnt seem like they made it public. Looks like you are correct. If I "log out" of Facebook and then click on the link that Molly provided, the Post is not there.
  8. Yes, I can read posts from Carmi district 19, but I see nothing there re FOID cards nor soon to be $1M phone upgrade It's the first post on that page. I also carry this with me. (430 ILCS 65/5) (from Ch. 38, par. 83-5) Sec. 5. Application and renewal. (a) The Department of State Police shall either approve or deny all applications within 30 days from the date they are received, except as provided in subsection (b of this Section, and every applicant found qualified under Section 8 of this Act by the Department shall be entitled to a Firearm Owner's Identification Card upon the payment of a $10 fee. Any applicant who is an active duty member of the Armed Forces of the United States, a member of the Illinois National Guard, or a member of the Reserve Forces of the United States is exempt from the application fee. $6 of each fee derived from the issuance of Firearm Owner's Identification Cards, or renewals thereof, shall be deposited in the Wildlife and Fish Fund in the State Treasury; $1 of the fee shall be deposited in the State Police Services Fund and $3 of the fee shall be deposited in the State Police Firearm Services Fund. (b Renewal applications shall be approved or denied within 60 business days, provided the applicant submitted his or her renewal application prior to the expiration of his or her Firearm Owner's Identification Card. If a renewal application has been submitted prior to the expiration date of the applicant's Firearm Owner's Identification Card, the Firearm Owner's Identification Card shall remain valid while the Department processes the application, unless the person is subject to or becomes subject to revocation under this Act. The cost for a renewal application shall be $10 which shall be deposited into the State Police Firearm Services Fund. (Source: P.A. 100-906, eff. 1-1-19.)
  9. My FOID expired Jan 1, 2020; I renewed Oct 9, 2019. Yep, it's still "Under Review". Virtually impossible to contact a live person, via their Customer Service. I did fill out an online FOID Inquiry yesterday; we'll see how long it takes for them to respond to that, and I'll try calling again on Monday. I've seen how ISP states the FOID is still valid, if renewal is submitted prior to expiration, but not all local gun store go by that rule. I know of one (there may be more), Mega Sports (yeah, I know how some people will never do business there) will not sell ammo, and I'd also assume a firearm, without presenting a valid FOID card. They state that the FOID and the CCL have different expiration dates, so they need to see the actual FOID. You can't access the FOID Renewal site until you are 90 calendar days from expiration date and then ISP has 60 business days to approve the new card, then it's another 1 - 2 weeks to get it out through snail mail. Maybe they should open up the renewal link 90 business days from expiration rather than calendar days.
  10. I also could also use a recommendation... My guy, Paul from Great Guns Armory in Plainfield, is also out of the FFL business.
  11. I almost thought the Walmart thread was gone. Man accidentally shoots self in groin inside Buckeye Walmarthttps://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/southwest-valley-breaking/2018/11/28/man-accidentally-shoots-himself-groin-inside-buckeye-walmart/2143635002/?fbclid=IwAR0VfE7TX9muK4K7L4ZJRSxX9CjHKm_P8bAPHcK5tjUhTLQThOuVONu7UE4 Nathan J. Fish, Arizona RepublicPublished 4:31 p.m. MT Nov. 28, 2018 | Updated 5:19 p.m. MT Nov. 28, 2018 A man accidentally shot himself in the groin area while inside a Buckeye Walmart on Tuesday, police said. The man was in a Walmart store near Watson and Yuma roads around 6:30 p.m., when the semiautomatic handgun began to slip as he carried it unholstered in the waistband of his sweatpants, Buckeye police said. The man told police that when he tried to reposition his loaded gun and keep it from falling, he shot himself in the groin area. Officers arrived and found the man in the meat department with the gunshot wound, police said. He was taken to the hospital with survivable injuries, police said. No one else was hurt during the incident. Police said all indications are the shooting was accidental, but police did file a report for unlawful discharge of a firearm. Additional information was unavailable.
