Interesting thread in GD got me thinking...


can an 18+ yr old buy a handgun FTF in IL?

Also, anyone have a Beretta M9 civi clone so I can prepare myself for PLC next summer? Thanks!

I might be wrong, but I thought it is 21 for handguns and 18 for long guns.

21 for handguns and beer. All you can do at 18 is elect a President or die for you country in combat. I'm way past 18 and 21 but these laws still disgust me.

Hopefully by the time you go, the M9 will have met it's long awaited destiny in the crusher. The .45 ACP round has been decided upon once again by the government genuis squad, guess it was fine all along. Now they claim they just need to find a pistol to fire the .45ACP cartridge

I would much rather they put the old M9's into the CMP than crush them but you know that is just wishful thinking.

I'm not a lawyer.

I don't play one on TV.

I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.



The ISP website addresses this in the FAQ section of the website.

At what age can I purchase a long gun? Handgun?
In Illinois you must be at least 18 years of age to purchase a long gun and at least 21 years of age to purchase a handgun.

This is what I've always thought, but this is just the FAQ, and it doesn't quote a law anywhere, so I'd probably try to find the source material if I were you before I took this at face value and gave up.

Thanks guys, I just heard a rumor in GD about tihs and was just making sure. Someone said FTF is legal for 18+ in IL. Nevermid then... carry on as usual.

CMP can't sell handguns.

So it looks like you can buy FTF at 18... but you can't buy one from an FFL. (according to the cited Code above)

I'd always heard you could possess but not purchase a HG @ 18.

There it is right there.

18 years old, just not from an FFL.

Anyone want to unload a pistol on me in that case?

By unload I mean sell, not shoot though... sorry if I got anyone's hopes up!

Hell, I think you have been shot down.

How about when a person under 18 receives a handgun from a deceased relative as part of a will? The person under 18 also has had a foid for quite sometime.

Parent or legal guardian living in the house would need to get a FOID.
Under 18 still considered a minor and would need to be supervised handling firearms.

I was thinking about answering, who'd know?

My father passed away when I was 13. I inherited his Colt Series 70 Gov from him. A good family friend kept that gun and other guns for me till I was 21. As I get older I find time flys by. You (generally speaking) can wait a few years to buy a handgun, etc. if you are not old enough yet.
