    I travel into Illinois often on business and do not have an FOID card.

    Am I correct that in order to legally travel through Illinois with my
    firearm that I would need to do the following before entering the state:

    be legally eligible to possess or acquire firearms and ammunition in my
    state of residence
    ensure the weapon is unloaded, and
    ensure the weapon is enclosed in a case, and
    ensure the weapon is not immediately accessible or broken down in a
    nonfunctioning state

    Is there any specific requirement for transport of the ammunition that was
    in the weapon or in any additional magazines or revolver strips?

    Thank you!

    I live on the Left coast, but as a CCW, thanks for your Due Diligence. Sucks to have to be hadicapped of your rights, but I am sure we all know how that goes, at times. Have a safe trip.
