The chances are you can find what you want from a third party on the internet.  But how do you get it in your hands?  That's where we can help.  Our Federal Firearms License (FFL) allows us to receive a firearm from the seller and transfer it to you.

Illinois Waiting Period

Pursuant to Illinois law, 720 ILCS 5/24-3, sellers must withhold delivery of a long gun, rifle or shotgun, for 24 hours and a handgun for 72 hours from the time the application for purchase has been reached. Violation of that provision is Unlawful Sale or Delivery of Firearms and is a Class 4 Felony, punishable by up to 1-3 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

When a customer has a gun shipped from another FFL or out of state, when does the waiting period begin? The waiting period starts when the agreement is reached with the seller. It need not be the FFL making the transfer of the firearm. If the firearm was paid for and/or shipped from another FFL, the waiting period began prior to when the FFL conducting the transfer received the firearm.

Individual FFL's may have their own policies and procedures to observe the waiting period.  Most will start the waiting period once the firearm is in their possession.  Not us.  The Firearms Transfer Inquiry Program (FTIP) still has to be followed.  Just because the shipper's tracking number says it has been delivered, doesn't mean you can pick it up immediately.  Dealers are still required to receive approvals from the State Police before the transaction can be completed.

Transfer Fees

$20 for handguns/frames/receivers
$25 for long guns
Transfer fees include NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System)
