So I ordered a couple mags for a 30-06 rifle and asked for them to be shipped to Illinois because i am going coyote hunting in Illinois with some friends next week and working on my rental property. and the fine folks at Sportsman guide refused to ship to illinois at first after arguing he said you must have a illinois id and foid ! incorrect a valid foid ok but id also no.
My case is a foid with illinois address and florida dl since I am florida homesteaded "florida rules " now FOID because I goto illinois and want to have a gun for protection while in illinois and foid state police have my florida address I updated it with them. So sportsman guide says and I quote "ANYTHING AT ALL GUN RELATED FOR ENTIRE STATE OF ILLINOIS MAY ONLY BE PURCHASED WITH A VALID FOID AND VALID STATE ID NO EXCEPTIONS ANYTHING AT ALL GUN RELATED" OK so no problem a FOID is a STATE ID ! AND Illinois does require if you have trips to illinois often and owning a property a foid for illinois "at least thats what a foid office officer told me " no problem so now they refuse to send the mags to illinois.
So I go coyote hunting with only 1 mag
and I didn't cancel order because the same order has 14 30 round ar mags ! HMMM funny how when you have anything climbing in value for a ar they try hard to cancel the orders and or delay to see how they can make even a HUGER PROFIT !
Ok so I want to know since when do you need a foid for a magazine, or a scope or a case, or a sling, or even a new gun safety lever?????
From what I know FOID is only for GUNS and AMMO ! Am I mistaken ?
