    Does anyone know where I can find a list of the handguns that had been banned in Illinois?

    No fully automatics ANYWHERE.

    Cook County has an assault weapons ban. Chicago has their own list which includes the cook county ban.

    I'm trying to find links to exacts but the Cook County weapons ban is the typical more than one of the following scary feature BS. Pistol grip, shroud, bayonet lug, detachable mag bla de bla de bla.

    If you don't live in the crap hole that is Cook County go nuts buy whatever the hell you want except for fully automatics.

    There is a case that will be heading to Supreme Court that will challenge the BSery of the Cook County ban. Wilson Vs. Cook County.

    IL does not ban any type or make handguns except no fully auto.
    As WaveyDavey mentioned some municipalities who have home rule may have ordinances which are more restrictive than state law. You can find those local ordinances at http://www.isp.state.il.us/foid/ordinances.cfm . On the right side of the page is a list of cities with their own ordinances concerning firearms. Click on the city of interest and you'll see their ordinances concerning firearms. State law requires all cities who have passed local ordinances concerning firearms to send their ordinance to the ISP so it will be listed.
    Don't panic when you see the list and think all those cities ban guns of some type. Not all of those listed have laws more restrictive than state law. Some cities listed have passed laws identical to state laws. That allows them to prosecute/enforce certain laws as an ordinance instead of as a criminal citation. Other cities listed have passed ordinances such as zoning restrictions to cover businesses such as someone with a gun shop. I can't recall the city now but for example one passed a zoning requirement that a gun store when closed for non-business hours had to have firearms secured in such a manner, have so many locks on a door, and some kind of security on the windows. It doesn't really apply to gun ownership but addresses gun store owners and security but it's still included on the listing.

    A firearms manufacturer can have full autos in Ill. There's a guy just outside of town who has a collection of them.

    Do you really think your answer applies to the OP's question?
    As a LEO I could possess full auto weapons. When I was in the military I could possess full auto in IL. Neither of which has any relevance to the OP's question. There are all kinds of exceptions in the statutes which we could cite altho none of them would be relevant.

    Also the case I mentioned earlier is going to state Supreme Court, not federal...yet.

    I would usually agree with you but.... your very first answer said:

    So yeah, it was an incorrect and overly broad answer. If it was just LEO's and military, I might side with you. But if there are legal instances where civilians can own and shoot full auto, then your answer requires clarification!

    And if you are worrying about "what is relevant" then why did you bring it up in the first place? The OP asked about handguns and the first thing you do it to start saying full autos are banned. The number of full auto handguns is infinitesimal so it is hardly worth mentioning!
