I want to buy a rifle today, but my State issued ID card expired in august, will i need to go get a new one first or will the FFL take the expired one?

Darn, I was suspecting that was the case but just wanted to make sure, I hope they are even open today.

Yep you need a new VALID id card. I tried to buy my last handgun with my ID card and during the date of purchase it was valid, but during the 10-day wait ( I hate CA) my license had expired and earned me a denial. Had to go to DMV, get a renewed license, wait for the hard copy in the mail, then go do the NICS check again. Took over a month from start to finish.

I think that any current photo ID with physical address (not PO box) and DOB will work for firearms ID in most states not needing a special permit. Glad I live in the free state of Maine.:D

It has to be government issued, still valid and establish the identity, place of residence and age of the buyer. Not too many things other than a driver's license or ID card will do all that. See page 5, section 20a:
