    Locked in the trunk unloaded and cased would be the best way I believe. And BRING LOTS OF MONEY for the tolls... I hate Illinois..

    *sarcasm on*

    Field stripped and the pieces in different locations of the vehicle with the barrel duct taped to the frame???

    *sarcasm off* .... or not!

    Fill up your gas tank and your belly before entering Illinois. Do not buy anything, Do not spend ANY money there. No sense funding the anti's.

    I texted an old friend who I grew up with in Chicago who is a retired detective.I will see what he say's I guess.
    Going around Illinois doesn't interest me.Taking a ferry from Milw. to Michigan may be an option.I will post what my friend recomends.He should know

    IL law requires the gun be unloaded and in a case. If it is accessable to the occupants, it can be concidered a concealed weapon and they will really jerk you around. Unnloaded in a case in the trunk is the safest place.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Lock it up in the trunk with ammo secured separately. Fill your car up, get food and drink to last a few hours, go to the bathroom, and drive straight through. For extra peace of mind, make sure all of your lights are working and don't be the fastest person on the highway. This is what I do every time I go through Maryland.

    This is my exchange with the Illinois State Police Firearms Division Dated Jan 27, 2012:

    ME:

    I am aware that Illinois does not recognize my Missouri CCW.

    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!

    THEM:

    The information you listed is correct. With regards to ammunition, it can
    be in the same case as the firearm but must not be loaded into the firearm.

    Thank you,

    To be honest the guy lives in Wisconsin and it would be a PITA to have to travel thru Iowa and Missouri just to bypass Illinois,It can be somewhat aggravating for a new member asking a reasonable question to get a decent response without the numerous posts stating "Go around,move to another state,shoulda bought a Glock,etc."
    357and40 nailed the answer,keep coming back someday you can be a smartass like us

    Actually going around isn't a totally smartass answer in this case...

    Lake Express has a ferry from Milwaukee to Muskegon allowing one to avoid both Chicago traffic and Illinois' rediculous gun laws altogether.

    Then an almost direct route south to Michigan City on I-94.

    Glad to hear the info 357and40 from the Il state police no less. I've got a trip planned for the summer from St. Louis to Santa Claus, Indiana and wanted to be SURE about how to get thru Illinois unscathed.
