Figured I'd post an update here on my FOID card experience.
Yesterday was exactly 30 days from when my $10 check was cashed for the FOID card processing. I had sent in the application 2-3 weeks prior to that, which makes this now approximately 7 weeks. I had to wait for 44 minutes before I could get a representative on the phone.
Illinois, I assume. Call your state rep and/or state senator, and complain. Let him or her put the heat on the ISP.
has a long thread on FOID wait time.
