    Maybe we could organize a mini Meet and Greet. I'd be glad to organize one for this spring. Anyone interested?

    I've been considering the same thing for the MS boys, there's at least 5 including me that are almost within spitting distance, heck at least 3 of us are in the same county.

    I'll be driving right by you quite a bit going back and forth from Iowa to Michigan this year if that counts.

    Sounds fun. I'll see if I can find a range that will let us all in. Most times you have to be a member and you can bring in one guest. I'm going to start trying to put some things together. Get a local hotel for you all, too.

    Magnum, they should have contacted you WITHIN 30 days eithor by sending u a foid card, by letter denying you a foid card, or by letter stating you're app is still under review. Mine was over 30 days, found ph# of deputy director on isp website or the like, and called. There it was, info just sitting in computer for weeks, aprooved but not released. Had it in my hands a couple days later.

    Quick question guys. My residency is in illinois but i currently live in montana. Can i apply for a FOID card? Reason being i go back to illinois alot when im on leave and i might be moving back in a year after my enlistment and would like to have it done before i move back and also to be able to come back and go to the range with my friends when im on leave.

    Thanks! I have been calling since last Wednesday and it has rang busy. Finally got through and they had a "109 minute wait to speak to a customer support rep". I HATE ILLINOIS!! Long story short - I made a ton of calls around the system and they said I have been approved and will have in 7-10 days.

    They told me they have no idea why it was just stuck in the system. Supposedly approved 3 weeks ago.

    My understanding is that you don't need a FOID card since you are active duty military. My BIL, Army, hunts on his active duty ID when he comes back during season. He is registered with Illinois as his home state. He buys a hunting license over the counter with his out of state drivers liscense and ID. You might want to check the IL DNR website.

    Once your enlistment is up and if you decide to make Illinois your permanent residence, you'll have to get a FOID card.

    I live down along the I-80 corridor but would definately be interested in a shooting get together. Not a problem to drive a couple hours north to shoot some guns and hangout.

    Whenever I can, I drive 6 hours down to Stalkingbear's to shoot with him in Kentucky. It's always worth the drive. You are welcome to come join us.
