    Traveling threw Illinois

    My wife and I are leaving on a multi state motorcycle journey in a couple weeks. My route passes right threw Illinois. My Florida concealed weapons license gets me threw most states without an issue. But then there's Illinois. I'll just be passing threw heading Northwest from Kentucky to Missouri, without stopping for a night. Since I'm just passing threw, I don't expect any troubles with the law. But, before I enter the state, I plan to disassemble my Ruger LC9 and carry it in one saddlebag, and carry the ammo in the other saddlebag. I'd love to hear any comments from any Illinois residents or better yet, LEO's on carrying a weapon threw the state.

    Google "FOPA" and follow the requirements TO THE LETTER.

    LEGALLY you will be on firm ground.

    My preference would be to avoid Illinois. If you have no actual business there, I'd take a different rout and spend your money where it's wanted.

    That's the link to the IL State Police pamphlet on firearm transport. But I agree with Deanimator...since the People's Republic of Illinois still doesn't believe in the 2d A., better to not take chances.

    Unloaded and in a case (ammo in a mag in the same case but not the gun is ok... OR
    Disassembled and with ammo in a different place not readily accessible.
    Don't consent to a search ;)

    I don't know why you'd trust a LEO to give you an accurate answer. They're not known for their bright legal minds. The last time I asked a LEO a firearm related question I got a scoff and a smart ***** answer that would've gotten my a felony.
