Hello all,

Got an email from a guy in Indiana who wanted to purchase ammo from me...no big deal. Now he wants to met face to face. Can I sell it face to face if he doesn't have a foid? He has a cc permit if that makes a difference.

Thanks in Advance

I believe IL requires non-resident hunting license for sporting ammo.

Handgun ammo sale not allowed to resident of contiguous state.

Good Luck

From nraila.org :


A non-resident is permitted to possess a firearm without a FOID if it is unloaded and enclosed in a case, or if the nonresident is:
• Hunting and has a non-resident hunting license, while in an area where hunting is permitted.
• On a target range recognized by the Department of State Police.
• At a gun show recognized by the Department of State Police.
• Currently licensed or registered to possess a firearm in his state of residence.

Any resident of Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, Wisconsin or Kentucky, or a non-resident with a valid non-resident hunting license, who is 18 years of age or older and who is not prohibited by the laws of Illinois, the state of his domicile, or the United States from obtaining, possessing or using a firearm, may purchase or obtain a rifle, shotgun or ammunition for a rifle or shotgun in Illinois. A non-resident who qualifies to possess a firearm under one of the above-listed exceptions may also purchase ammunition.

Look at what's in bold. I think you're G2G with your sale...

An IL resident when in IL needs a FOID to buy/sell/trade ammo an Out of State Person only need to provide a state ID or DL to prove that he or she is not an IL resident.

An IL business like Walmart or gun shop sell ammo to out of state residents frequently the only requirement is an ID proving none IL residency

Most states an IL resident can buy ammo without even providing any ID, I have made ammo purchases, in person, out of state multiple times and from multiple states and have never had to show my FOID when out of state, on occasion I have had to show my DL

Purchasing ammo on line /Internet from a business you will be required to provide copy of your FOID or have a copy on file...

IMO most people/individuals from other states are unaware of what an IL FOID is...
