Congratulations, now that you have your gun get it cleaned and lubed before you head for the range. We'll be expecting an after action report and pictures after your first trip to the range.

Hope SCOTUS decides to hear proposed cases and rules in favor of the 2nd Amendment as written " ... shall not be infringed."

6 months to buy a gun?? You could have ordered it from the custom shop and it would still have been waiting on you.

OMG! Y'all are killing me here! Wtf is an fid card? Wtf is a weapons license? #*!?
Dudes. This is so wrong!

I can walk into a gun store here in Ky and walk out in 15 minutes with the gun of my choice. I sign a paper saying I'm not a practicing serial killer, they make a phone call to make sure I'm not a convicted felon, and that's it. When I bought a gun for my son, it was a busy day...I was a little upset that it took 35 minutes!

What's all the gun grabber bs about having "enhanced" background checks? How much more enhanced can you get than a 6 month wait!

Well this was an education! Next gun grabber I verbally beat down will hear about a law abiding citizen having to wait 6 mos for a legal product!

Fellas, I'm sorry. I didn't know it was this different state to state. :eek:

And THAT's the way we do it down South. :D

But, hey, the wait BS isn't your fault. Like most licensed gun owners, we tend to follow the law. Good on you!

Enjoy the new toy.

Anybody here from Texas? Surely they don't allow this much government oversight there. *getting upset*

What are other some other states with restrictive laws?

It's the same in Georgia. No need for a weapons license. However, if you get a weapons license (carry permit) the LGS doesn't even have to make the phone call.

I guess a license is not surprising...that's just a flipping tax. I have to buy a license to fish in Ky. But not to buy, own or shoot a gun.

Thanks. That makes sense. We have to have a permit for CC too.

I believe the fid card p010 is referring to is like our foid card - Firearm Owners Identification Card. It's a card issued by the state that shows it's legal for you to own a gun and ammunition. It normally takes a couple of weeks to get approved but because of the vast number of people applying for them it's taking up to 6 months to get one here in Illinois. Our cards are good for 10 years, we still have to go through a background for every firearm we buy and the state law required 3 day cooling off period before you can get the firearm. I can't help you out with the weapons license thing, we don't have anything like that here.
