Very true. Once you are one of the few you ARE ALWAYS one of the brotherhood.

there are also a couple on gunbroker.com all you usually have to do is find an ffl listed in your area ask them the laws on transfering it to you and have it shipped to them. they usually charge around $35 I have one here that will do it for $20 most of you pawn shops are ffl as well.

DG, I live in Illinois and you have to have a FOID card to purchase a gun here in Illinois. It is a $10 fee and an application needs to be filled out.

click here for application


If you are hoping to get this for him by Christmas, I don't think you'll have your FOID card in time to purchase a gun for him as a Christmas present but I'm sure he'll love the gun whenever he gets it. You are a very thoughtful and loving daughter.

I call every Marine (former or presently serving) a Marine. I thought 'once a Marine, always a Marine. No such thing as a 'former Marine', I thought.

Are you still in Ohio? If so you need to check with a local ffl. You should be able to have it shipped from anywhere
