That is awful. I don't understand how a buddy got his FOID renewal in 20 days when I read things like this.

Call your rep and bitch about it. Also call the firearms section and ask them what is going on.

It took me 21 phone calls to get through to the f.o.i.d. card people to apply by phone.
All those many months ago.

Three weeks ago I called the gun shop in Geneseo, to ask if they could assist me.
they must have finally gotten through to the right firearms official
,
Because today I got my c.w.p in the mail.

I mailed my CCW renewal Jan 17th 2020, and my wife's FOID renewal in Aug 2020.

A buddy told me to do this back in March and it worked. Called on a Thursday and had both our new cards in 3 days.

Go to the Illinois State Police facebook page, find their contact information. Call the phone number listed and ask for the firearms service division. Have your application # and CCW # handy.

I hate Illinois. Hoping to get out of here when the youngest finishes high school in 4 years.

bendable, Mine also took 14 months. But I got my FOID renewal in 5 weeks. No rhyme or reason to any of it...

Unless things have changed, You don't need a FOID and a CCW permit,
The CCW permit is good as your FOID card too.

Depending on his rep, if they're a liberal, they won't care.

Call the firearms section of the ISP and you get a recording.

Leo Schmidt was the old head of ISP, (former Chicago cop and boss on the job, as well as a huge firearms enthusiast, and 2nd Amnendment / concealed carry supporter) he had the (FOID/ CCL) office staffed with enough people to get the job done effectively. That was also under Governor Rauner.

Governor fatass? Nope... Office is barely staffed. Why you ask? Because you owning a gun and being able to carry one legally isn't one of his priorities, stuffing his gaping maw with another cheeseburger is.

FYI the guy in charge is a gun guy and not anti gun at all. My brother knows him.

You need a FOID if you have a CCW. You only have to carry the CCW though.

bendable,
Congratulations on receiving your concealed weapons permit!
Your state, like mine, coddles criminals and persecutes law abiding citizens.
The COVID mess didn't help matters either.
It IS a big accomplishment in a shithole progressive state.
I didn't know where Henry County was located, so I Googled it.
Way too close to Shitcago for my comfort level...
Glad you got it and hope you never need it.

Congratulations. What will you be carrying?
