    Hey guys I've never sold a gun via the internet from Illinois but I think I'm going to do that. Please don't respond if you just have general information for your state, illinois has records keeping requirements and wait periods and thats what I'm more interested in. What am I required to keep as records since the buyer won't have a foid card? Do I need a d/l number or just the receiving ffl's id number? I planned on just getting the ffl's number and verifying it via easy check since most don't seem to want to send their license to non-ffl's. Also any requirements for the wait period since the buyer is out of state? I'd assume not.

    Also how do you usually collect payment since paypal seems to be non-gun friendly? Postal money order?

    Here's what the law says:
    The requirement to keep a FOID card number only applies to transfers within the state. You couldn't get a FOID number from a non-resident because there is no provision for a non-resident to have a FOID card.

    Note the change effective last year to keep a record of the date the person asked for the transfer. You don't want to run afoul of the waiting period. It doesn't say the waiting period doesn't apply to out of state sales.
