    Hi all - I’m moving to Lincolnshire in Lake County from sunny Arizona next week and I’m hoping to apply for a FOID and re-build my collection up there. With Lincolnshire being a northern chicago suburb is there anything I should know about in terms of firearm or FOID restrictions beyond the usual delays in picking up new firearms ?

    Thanks in advance, I’m starting from scratch here.

    You can’t even bring your existing collection until you receive a FOID. :mad:

    Thanks guys, at least there is a process - I was worried there for a while that being so close to Chicago I would be faced with a complete ban.

    Fonsini,

    No disrespect to you! But sorry to hear you are moving from Arizona to the Socialist Republic of Chicago! Sorry to say regarding weapons nothing good about it!
    The are is known for good food and things to do! "But also for being a Murder Capital" with some of the most restrictive weapon policies in the US.
    The Foid Card system is a socialist anti gun Joke!!
    You can not even pick or touch a gun at an Illinois Gun Show until you show the dealer your Foid Card. Oh yes, and also check out the regulations on CCW, ARs and Magazines in the Chicago area.:( Oh did I mention I hate the TRAFFIC!:p
    Good Luck and take care!

    I turned down a really good job offer because it was Chicago.

    Notice the extensive use of "and parking areas". Basically it prevents you from carrying even in your car. And of course they also include in the list all forms of public transportation.
