Default Help PLEASE!!

I am a 27 year old daughter of an ex-marine and I need your help............I am looking for a gun for my dad, I cannot find one for sale anywhere. My father owned a Ruger .480 revolver when I was a kid. A decade ago he sold this gun to help put food on the table after he had both legs amputated due to a hunting accident (fell from treestand). I know that this gun meant a lot to him, I would love to get it back for him for Christmas this year, but I cannot find it anywhere. I have searched the world over and am starting to lose hope. If you can help me out with this dilemna I would greatly appreciate it. I need to do this for my dad, I need to give him back something that he gave up so that my sister and I could survive.........Please help

There are two listed on Gunsamerica.com. There are several on armslist.com as well. I don't know what state you are in, but good luck.

I dont know about IL laws on it but ya usually. If you are buying it on line then i might be wrong but i think you have to pay the ffl fees and shipping on top of the gun/tax.

Hi there! Basic primer on buying a modern day firearm- if gun is crossing a state line, it must be shipped to a dealer in the state of the person receiving the gun. We can help you find a list of dealers that have signed up to do transfers.

FOID- Firearm Owners ID Card- requirement for the state of Illinois ONLY. If gun is going to anyone in Illinois, by state law, they must have one before they can touch a gun.

PS- NEVER use term Ex-Marine. They tend to get all red faced. Term is FORMER Marine. Ex Marine is one who has been booted out. (Dad of a retired Marine here)
