I have ordered 9mm Luger from https://www.patriotsammo-arms.com/ in the past without issue, just got an order from them in June. Placed an order for some 5.56 and they said they can't ship to a private residence in Chicago. Must ship to a FFL. I told them to pound sand and they actually suspended my account. I can't log in to their website anymore.

I contacted Patriots Ammo & Arms. They clarified their shipping policy. They will ship to Chicago (zip code 606##) only when the item shows "Available In-Store".

If it shows "Available Online" only, then it ships from their partner vendors, which they may have restricted shipping policies.

For any other upland/turkey/duck hunters looking for non-tox shotgun ammo, bossshotshells ships to Chicago.  Really fast shipping and good stuff for upland/pheasant.  

 

https://bossshotshells.com

Illinois- Has to have a Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) + Driver’s License. Customer needs to take a photo of the FOID and Drivers license emailed to info@bossshotshells.com and the address needs to match on the DL, FOID and ship to.

 

Looks good . . . added.

I have made several purchases from the Ammunition Fairy. She ships to Chicago. http://www.ammunitionfairy.com/

You are probably one of the lucky ones.

 

I've contacted Ammunition Fairy.

 

Unfortunately, they do not ship to addresses with the City of Chicago zip code of 606##.

 

They follow the Lucky Gunner terms and condition for shipping ammunition to Chicago.

I've also contacted Lucky Gunner to discuss their current conditions for shipping ammunition to Chicago.

https://www.luckygunner.com/ammo-regulations-for-shipping-to-chicago

 

I sent them this email:

 

Quote
In reference to your shipping policy to Chicago [https://www.luckygunner.com/ammo-regulations-for-shipping-to-chicago], there were some amendments to legislation.
 
Current legislation for this statute 430 ILCS 65/13.1 [https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/documents/043000650K13.1.htm], with the new Public Act 102-538 [https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/publicacts/fulltext.asp?Name=102-0538] is effective August 20, 2021.

This references the possession and transportation of ammunition by a holder of a valid FOID card. This is a requirement by ammunition sellers that buyers will have to provide proof of a valid FOID.

 

In the past, Chicago Ordinance O2013-6015 [https://chicago.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=1460080&GUID=DC182460-94AC-4644-BE93-344059E10567] references Chicago Municipal Code 8-20-100(b) which read “No ammunition may be sold or otherwise transferred within the city, except through a licensed weapons dealer, or as otherwise allowed by this code.”

 

Currently, the Chicago Municipal Code 8-20-100 has been amended and no longer contains this language [https://codelibrary.amlegal.com/codes/chicago/latest/chicago_il/0-0-0-2644532].
This was amended by Chicago Ordinance O2014-4271 on June 25, 2014, it removed the restriction to purchase ammunition within Municipal Code 8-20-100. [https://chicago.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=1804593&GUID=F4AA3050-1B5E-4FAA-97EA-6F58C8CB51C6].


I would very much like to hear your thoughts on this with hopes that shipping ammunition will be allowed to City of Chicago addresses (zip code 606##).

I am in Northwest Cook County. I use SG Ammo and I have no problem at all.  What was the issue that got them on the lost cause list? 

There is a big difference between retailers that will ship to Cook County and ship to Chicago. Many retailers absolutely refuse to ship to Chicago which is what this thread is about.

Ahh, good old Joel from Luckygunner. I wasted days of my life on that guy a few years ago.

For all I know he's running Annunition Fairy in additional to LG and BA. If so, he will give you boilerplate responses like the one you got through Luckygunner and you'll get nowhere but frustrated. I asked if he could pass me along to whoever actually owns Luckygunner or to their "legal team" he referred to and he absolutely refused. Part of me thinks this guy just owns and operates multiple websites and uses a drop shipper and the "owners" and "legal team" he refers to are nonexistent.

 

Don't hold your breath for them to reevaluate their rules, either. He said the same thing in 2015.
