    Grandpa bought him a gun, dad got him a FOID. Grandpa is an avid trapshooter. Read the article in the first link -- much more detail (and kind of funny).

    The FOID statute contains a provision for inheritence of firearms and allows, I believe, 180 days before the person needs a FOID. Still a good idea to have one, though.

    From what I have heard Illinois wants to seriously increase the cost of the FOID card. Right now it is $5 for 5 years, if you get one you are grandfathered in at that rate for life as long as you dont let it expire. -Rich

    I wonder how long it will be before he gets his first credit card, pre-approval offer and home equity refinancing offers.
