Bubbacs Posted July 22, 2020 at 04:44 PM Share Posted July 22, 2020 at 04:44 PM I now feel like a knucklehead. At my CCL renewal class, I was told I still had to carry both if I was carrying a firearm. I now feel like a knucklehead. At my CCL renewal class, I was told I still had to carry both if I was carrying a firearm. Why should you have to have the FOID on you to carry? Sounds like the instructor didn't know what he was talking about. Any instructor here agree with that instructor? I just carry my CCL. If my wallet was lost or stolen I could use my FOID when transporting to the range or to buy a gun or ammo while I waited for a replacement CCL, not sure how long that takes right now. I could also keep an unloaded handgun in my car in the console of the car with a loaded magazine and have it available.It was to be carried in the beginning and both were required in possession.It was then changed, maybe at the same time the new style cards would be sent out with the CCL and have the matching numbers.I got my CCL without the new style FOID and the numbers didn’t match. Those who happened to have a FOID expire early in the program were still getting the old style cards. Many posts here about guys today shocked to find a new style and new FOID along with their new or old/renewed CCL. So I would agree with the statement to carry both pre 2015/16.I would not agree with that statement at this timeline forward.Remembering that these things were fluid in the beginning and some instructors were slow in getting the new information, it’s not like the FSB of ISP was or is a great communicator to instructors.
