  1. Is there a grace period on a expired card while you are waiting on a renewal to come through?
  2. My daughter applied for a foid renewal one year ago this month. After reading this thread, I gather this is not unusual and that she should continue to wait before sending an inquiry to the ISP. Question: How much longer should she wait, and is her current card valid until it is replaced?
  3. I don't see this posted anywhere here, so I thought I would contribute this article. There's a good map which tells the whole story. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/npr-understates-us-sanctuary-counties-there-arent-400-there-are-1930/
  4. Here's a little recap for you: it now appears we can neither buy, sell, or trade without the "mark of the beast."
  5. Finally got the call this morning. After an eleven day wait, I was able to go pick up my new two shooter.
  6. Do you think calling our state reps will do any good?
  7. I bought a new shotgun at Bass Pro this past Saturday, so I'm 4 days into this nonsense. It'll be interesting to see how long this takes. Ironic isn't it that I am standing at the gun counter with a pistol on my hip, but I have to wait what may become several weeks to get a lousy over and under shotgun. The state thinks I may do something rash if I get that shotgun soon. Got to cool down you know.
  8. Thanks to all for the good advice and information. It's just what I wanted to know.
  9. Please tell me the necessary steps to take to get my 14 year old grandson a foid card. Our local sporting good's store used to take care of this on site, but no longer does so. Thanks in advance.
  10. My card expires 1/1/19 which is about 10 months away. In order to avoid the pitfalls of a denial for some unforeseen reason, (mistake on the application or for that matter just a really slow process) how soon would you suggest I submit my renewal application?
  11. Thanks for the replies. I guess we'll start the process to get the cards for the kids.
  12. I guess I didn't search this site very well because I couldn't find any info. on the minimum age to get an FOID card. I have a couple grads kids turning 13. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. Well I got mine in the mail today too. I can't believe they used my drivers license photo instead of the digital one I sent them, and my number is longer than my ss number, but at least I am a free man today.
  14. Why would you put the idea in their head that they can now post? No sign? Carry on. Do you actually think that sooner rather than later they are not going to have a store policy? Do you really think that my asking them this question at this point is going to plant the thought in their heads that maybe they should post no carry sings? Someone is not thinking this thing through to its conclusion.
