Are you in unincorporated Cook County? If not, then... while I'm no lawyer, you'd have no problem. Keep in mind that Hoffman Estates had (or still has) some stupid registration system that requires you to register your gun(s) with the police or something. It was supposed to be dropped prior to some gun store opening up there, but I'd verify that.
