    Ok this is my first post, if I have placed it in the wrong forum mods please move it. This may be a dumb question but can I mail order ammunition to my door step in Illinois, or do I have to go through a FFl? I am located in southern Illinois, not any where near Chicago, or cook county (thank god :neener: ).

    I live in Southern Illinois and I routinely have ammo shipped to my home. I know for a fact that Eric at www.ammoman.com will ship here.

    Not being from Illinois, I couldn't really say. What I can say though , is that on the list of places that cheaperthandirt won't send ammo to .. only Cook County , Illinois is listed.

    I'm in Southern IL

    I receive ammo all the time. Midway is the only company I know of that won't ship to me....No, an FFL isn't required. (White County)

    I'm in Madison County,and as stated,most places will ship as long as you fax/email a copy of your FOID.Check Ammoman's shipping info,I believe they need a copy before you can order. I haven't had any problems so far.

    I know of 2 places that ship ammo to PRI withput foid card, most others need a faxed copy or a scanned copy of your foid. Many will not ship to an address other than the one on your foid.

    P.S. have you seen the newest foid card. Look closely, my pick is not the one I sent in, but a copy of my DL pic. I don't know why, but this bothers me. Oh well, such is the land of Linclon.

    It is perfectly legal as long as the county or municipality you live in has not banned it.

    I emailed cheaper than dirt and they do ship to Cook County, even though it is listed as them not. They just won't ship to Chicago. Most places want a copy of your FOID before they ship.

    Midway USA will not ship to Illinois at all. At least that was what I was told by one of their CS reps.

    Does that mean I have to start shipping their ammo back to them?

    What part of southern illinois? Hello from marion county.

    isp2605, how'd you manage that? I've only tried to order ammo from midway online but it won't let me check out with it in my cart.

    I'm just relating what was said to me in an email correspondence with one of their customer service reps. This is exactly what it said.

    Thanks for the info ISP, might have to call and try next time. In all likelyhood though they'll just miss out on my business heh. Out of curiosity I just tried again and got:


    Federal, state, or local law prohibits us from sending the following item(s) to the shipping address you entered:

    Product #: 122744
    Product Description: Federal Premium Vital-Shok Ammunition 7mm STW 150 Grain Nosler Solid Base Boat Tail Box of 20
    Message: cannot be shipped to state IL

    Please remove the item(s) from your Shopping Cart and begin the checkout process again, or close this window and try entering a different shipping address. NOTE: We cannot ship to a P.O. Box by UPS or send hazardous materials (e.g., aerosols, flammable liquids, loaded ammunition, primed brass, and etc.) by USPS.

    Don't know. I haven't ordered anything on line from them. I called them on the phone. Unless they changed policies since I last ordered or the guy I talked to didn't follow their policy, don't know. Last I got from them was 1K of 9mm about the first of this year.
