  1. UPS had no problem delivering my Stevens 77E to me last week...
  2. People are upset about the mass murder. They're also impotent to stop it, so some are desperate to "do something" so they can feel better about it. Psychologically, that's all this is. Definitely nothing to do with rational thought or science. Pure emotion. Social media is a disease that breeds and concentrates stupidity.
  3. I doubt anyone will be knocking on your door. If you have a concern about the FOID can you leave the guns with family out of state while you move here and get squared away? Like someone else said it probably depends on what kind of arrest record you have had. If it's just drugs you might get denied on application but can probably appeal and get it issued. If you have any kind of violent stuff you won't be given a FOID. I'd go ahead and move and get a lawyer to look into your background for you. There are benefits to living here, access to plentiful fresh water for one thing (I predict that's gonna become the major issue of the next 20-30 years). Plus Illinois always needs more 2A supporters.
  4. If you have a concern over the email you should log in to the website, **NOT** using the link in the email but just type it in to your browser, and see what's there. That's what I tell my mother whenever she gets weird emails.
  5. Before people continue bashing UPS, maybe we should let someone actually confirm this is correct and not some sort of scam? There are enough 2A enemies without making more by dragging companies through the mud who may have just been the victim of some troll.

    C&R

    I use USPS's informed delivery feature and it looks like my C&R is arriving today! Nice and quick.

    C&R

    Good advice. I had the pre-filled one on my laptop, so I just adjusted the dates and mailed em again. a couple weeks ago. Those pre-fill PDF templates make it easy.

    C&R

    Well, I figured out what happened when the manila envelope came back to me last week saying it has 20 cents postage due. I got the postage rate from the USPS website and it looked correct to me, but who knows... some postmaster decided it needed more postage. So now we start all over again because I'm not sending it in with a month-old date on it. 🙄

    C&R

    What's the current average wait time? I can't remember anymore. I sent my application and the LEO copy off mid March, haven't got the phone call yet and check hasn't been cashed. From what I remember, they'll call for the interview and ask some basic common sense questions.
  10. Done. Question: Is Tanya Schardt really supposed to be filing witness slips for Illinois state bills when she's apparently not even a citizen of the state? That doesn't seem right.
  11. I'm thinking this thread should be pinned and my old one de-pinned.

    C&R

    Yep, part of the application process is sending a copy to the CLEO and when you fill out the application, it will auto generate a CLEO copy for you. When I lived in Chicago, I had to send it to Garry McCarthy 😆 No idea if he even looked at it, but he didn't try and object to the process as far as I know. I included a brief, polite, typed letter explaining why I'm sending it, which seems to help avoid confusion. The process is fairly painless, from what I recall. Pretty sure the ATF's local agent called and chatted with me for a few minutes and explained timeframe to receive the license and what else they would send. You'll get a package with a bunch of stuff in it.

    C&R

    Ok, looks like I'm gonna get my C&R again). 😀 On the topic of the days of cheap guns being over, I bought my MN 91/30 around 2002. I think I paid $90 to someone on GunsAmerica and $20 for the dealer transfer. Now I see them listed for $600 on GunBroker. Same with my Nagant M1891... Paid like $80 from J&G 5-6 years ago and I'm seeing even those are up in price.

    C&R

    Some years ago, I obtained my C&R. It expired long ago and I didn't renew it because at the time I needed to hold on to my money more than I needed another gun. Later, I wound up selling off much of what I bought for various reasons. Now that I'm living outside of the City of Chicago and am a homeowner, I'm in a bit better position to start purchasing again. Southern Ohio Gun closed up shop a few years ago, but I see a couple other dealers I bought from are around and seem to have some stuff in inventory. And there's always gunbroker. What are people's impressions of the state of the C&R world these days? Is it still worthwhile to get?
  15. Hi guys. I haven't lived in Chicago since 2019, so I'm not actively maintaining this list anymore. Just so you know. My feeling is it should be maintained by someone residing in Chicago who will keep abreast of the "unique" legal situation there as well as other important details (including that Cook County, Chicago and the suburbs are all different from each other as regards ammunition shipments and that this list only deals with Chicago). I hope this list has been helpful to folks in Chicago over the years trying to exercise their second amendment rights. If someone wants to volunteer to maintain it going forward, they should contact the site mods.
  16. Gun Zone Deals added and a coupe of dead links removed from the list.
  17. Thank you! We just don't want anyone feeling misled, a lot of people have posted here saying "so and so is good to go" then it turns out they don't live in the City proper.
  18. Can you confirm you live within the City of Chicago? Reason I ask is because people frequently pop up here saying such and such vendor shipped ammo to them, but they turn out to live in some nearby suburb, or they say "I live in Cook County". It's a lot more complicated than that so I need to confirm.
