FOID law lists exemptions. As long as you follow the rules of keeping ammo separate from firearm and in a case, and are legal to own a firearm in your resident state you are fine... Now keep in mind

Not all police are savvy on laws... As this forum learned from one idealistic Chicago area state police officer pushing off his own agenda on Illinois businesses (see my signature for a link to the thread)

So be careful. If you have a choice don't visit Illinois. We hate it here and you will too.

Thx Pork Chop. I really need to visit Allendale, Ill. for research on American Revolution Historical data. If it were not important to the project I would not visit the state. I may go to Indiana and drop my Colt at a friends house before going to Ill.

You'll be fine bringing it with you, just make sure you're legal to own a firearm in the state you live in.

Refer to this:

Illinois sucks, but it's not like they have Gestapo searching every car at the borders (yet). I travel with a pistol in my car almost every day. It is transported in a 100% legal manner and has never been an issue.

The only issue that could arise is if you get pulled over by a police officer that doesn't know FOID law and you're not from Illinois.

That was all my original comment was about...yes the law is very clear, I agree, it's just unfortunate that it's not clear enough for certain people to fully comprehend it =)
