IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE ILLINOIS STATE POLICE BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM.

They are doing their absolute best with very limited resources. Therefore, at this time, the Illinois State Police Background Check System is experiencing severe delays in processing background checks. They are taking up to 72 hours to approve you. SO, AS SOON AS YOU ORDER your item, get a scanned or photo copy of your FOID card and Drivers License to us ASAP. We will immediately run the check so that there is no additional wait times on getting your item. There are many frustrated folks out there getting items delivered in two /three days only to then have to wait ANOTHER three days to pick up  their items. Troubles with scans/photos; Text or Call us at (708) 634-9886 with your full name, including full middle name (not initial) , date of birth, and FOID card number. 

(Also tell us if you purchased a pistol or rifle). 

Or e-mail us a scan or photo to Transfersbyjohn@gmail.com

We will get your check going IMMEDIATELY!

You may need to type in your zip code (use a 25 mile radius or more) or type in our name; Transfers By John to find us. Typing in a zip code of 60491 or 60440 will usualy locate us most of the time. If this "ffl finder" system is is not available, simply send an e-mail to your retailer, after you place your order, providing them with your order number and a scan of our FFL. If you have any questions we will help. We will even send them our FFL documents if you have troubles doing so. IT IS THAT EASY!
  3. Finally, if you are weary of ordering online, simply come on over any time day or night and we can do it together. NO CHARGE! This way you get a great deal, learn the process in 10 minutes or less, and pay no sales taxes.

Confused about waiting periods? Here are the FACTS:

 What are the Illinois Waiting Periods?


IN SUMMARY;


The Illinois State Police (ISP) concludes that the waiting period to purchase a firearm as defined under state law, 720 ILCS 5/24-3(g)  begins when the buyer and seller reach the "agreement" to purchase the firearm.


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.


Illinois State Police have been fielding an increase in requests for clarification on how to abide by the waiting period and when it begins.


According to 720 ILCS 5/24-3(g) the waiting period of 24 or 72 hours does not begin until after its application for purchase has been made. The statute defines "application" as:

"For purposes of this paragraph (g), "application" means when the buyer and seller reach an agreement to purchase a firearm."

In People vs. Hurtado, 208 Ill.App.3d 110 (2nd District, 1991), the Second District Appellate Court took the position that "application" was a "request". The court said:

"We therefore conclude that the legislature intended that the term "application" have the meaning of "request" and the statutory requirement is an informal request to purchase a firearm. Since we believe the legislature intended that "application" mean "request," we shall use the terms "application" and "request" interchangeably. "

Illinois statute picks up on the Court's reasoning in Hurtado, and formalizes that there is in fact intent to buy a firearm by virtue of an agreement. The statute does not spell out what needs to be in the agreement, or the manner in which it is to be memorialized.


ISP concludes that the waiting period to purchase a firearm as defined under state law, 720 ILCS 5/24-3(g) begins when the buyer and seller reach the "agreement" to purchase the firearm.


So, once you make an agreement to purchase, the clock starts ticking. Vendors ship out 2 Day Air. There is always 1 day or more of processing time. So, by the time your item reaches our shop , your wait period has concluded.
