Waiting period is in effect. Makes it hard to buy a pistol unless the dealer is nearby for pickup. Most of the time a dealer from out of the area will have an agreement with a dealer in the area to transfer the gun through them. Sometimes this is for a fee and other times it is a courtesy at no cost.
Is illinois the only state with this ridiculous law? Im curious because if I buy a gun im gonna want to shoot it the same day! Do you still have to wait if you go to a gun show in Indiana? I know some may think oh thats no big deal but im kinda impatient.
