How can I get a .22 cal in Illinois
« on: May 23, 2011, 11:40:38 PM »
I'm just wondering if there's a way to get a .22 cal air rifle shipped to IL?  PA and many other on line retailers say they wonít ship to IL because itís supposed to be Illegal.  I have a FOID but not sure if its still Illegal.  Any advise would be good.

You have to go to a bass pro shop or other retailer that will hold the gun for a fee. They would do a background check and accept the gun from PA and then after a waiting period release the gun to you. Generally costs around $30-$50 extra. You might be better off seeing if they will order the gun for you or going to GAT guns in Dundee. They have a great selection.

Thanks for the reply.  I did order a Trail NP 22 cal from Walmart on-line and they shipped it with no issue.

About a week ago I went to Gat Guns and I'd have to say its a pretty awesome gun shop.  All so I was surprised how much they knew about air guns.  The clerks name was Tim.  Very Knowledgeable.   Plus there were other customers there that were all so into air guns.  Very cool.

I discovered Walmart and Farm and Fleet in Wisconsin carry .22 airguns on their shelves too.

bodybag - I'm with Ryan. If you can't find what you want or it costs too much locally, we are pretty close to WI and can just "make a run for the border"

Heck yeah! So tired of this state, but it least I'm just inside of McHenry County (not Crook County).
