Where do I begin? Heck I don't know. There's a couple of things... I submitted a new CCL application and received my CCL card before people who are renewing. I noticed on the ISP portal that my FOID and CCL were both renewed and marked active on different days. I questioned whether or not I would receive a new FOID and CCL separately. Others had pointed out that would be a combined FOID/CCL card. I did not receive just one card. I received my FOID WITH CONCEALED CARRY INDICATOR on 02/18. The letter attached to the card specifically says that's what the card is. The indicator field says CCL on it. Neat. TODAY 02/22 I received another letter in the mail from the ISP with another card in it. It is a brand new FOID card. It does not have a CCL indicator on it. The indicator field just has a Y in that section. The letter specifically says that this card does not authorize the carrying of a concealed weapon. The cards are identical except for 3 things Indicator being either Y or CCL The AL number between my FOID number and the indicator The red text at the bottom. One says "CAUTION: This card does not permit bearer to UNLAWFULLY carry or use firearms. This does not authorize the carrying of a concealed weapon." the other says "CAUTION: This card does not permit bearer to UNLAWFULLY carry or user firearms". They still use the picture from your driver's license I can tell because it's the same horrible picture I took last year when I got my motorcycle endorsement. So... Was this an error? Did they mean to send me one card or two? Did the people who received a card with the Y indicator while waiting for their new CCL simply get a new FOID and their CCL is still lost in transit somewhere?
So Backstory. My CCL went active today 5/13/19 (Applied Jan 10. 2019, No Prints so 123 days in case anyone is waiting and trying to judge their wait time) I've had my FOID for about 6 years and the one I still have in hand is the older one with the drawing of the state and the light reflective colorful eagle on the bottom right corner. That FOID number doesn't match with the one on the ISP login. It's a new number, and it changed not after I was approved, but after I went Active. It's a significantly longer number and it matches my new CCL number. Does this mean that I can't buy new firearms, ammo, go to a range, or bring a weapon outside my home even if it is cased an unloaded, until the new CCL comes in? (Sure maybe go to a range since they don't seem to check anything online, but say for whatever reason I got involved in a car accident or something similar and the police see firearms and ask for a FOID card) Will they send me a replacement FOID when I get the new CCL and if not can I use the CCL as a FOID, or do I need to replace/renew it myself? I will also be leaving the state to visit Tennessee, with family members who have valid FOID cards, and even if the CCL is also sent with a new FOID, I will probably not be home at the time of delivery. I know Illinois is one of the only states to have FOIDs or something similar, but do other states expect you to bring yours from your home state if you're visiting? I know Tennessee honors Illinois CCL permits, but does anyone know if Tennessee CCL holders must have the license present on their person while carrying? I'm wondering that in the event that Tennessee CCL holders need not carry their permit on them while carrying a firearm, would they extent that same rule to Illinois CCL holders visiting the state?
Hey guys, do we have to renew an expiring FOID card if we already have a valid CCL which doesn't expire for years?
Recently I discovered my foid card lost but still have my ccl. I panicked and went online to try to report it lost but then I stopped entering information and went to look for it and forgot i was logged in then came back and it logged me out and when i tried re-logging back in it said under foid incomplete and no longer it said actice.but my ccl still shows active. Why is this? And by the way no luck finding my foid card. What should i do? Can i carry without a foid? Will i have to pay for a ccl replacement because of my foid being lost? Help plz
