    Smallgame: I did a quick search and it APPEARS your FOID is good for handguns as long as not concealed. However, don't take my research abilities too seriously. You ABSOLUTELY need to check with the authorities on this one.

      You ABSOLUTELY need to check with the Parks & Wildlife on this one. A quick call to your local Game Warden would answer all your questions.

          OH and I must have done a similar search. Unconcealed handgun carry is allowed with only a foid. However the site did not mention age restrictions on open carry and I'm sure that there is a regulation. Make the right phone call as none of us are in a place to answer that safely.

            If all the kids on the south-side of Chicago are doing it then it should be ok, right? They wouldn't intentionally break any laws, especially ones controlling the use of firearms.
