I'm not sure what they ask or have you do. There is a small gunshop in town here and I've been pondering getting the FOID card so I can own a weapon.

I DO have a misdemeanor from 2002 for cashing a work check that ended up being forged. A lot of us employees got misdemeanors from that crap. But anyway, that's all I have on my record (which keeps me from getting hired any and every where. No mcdonals, no taco bell, no factories, nothing. It's so horrific).

Will that keep me from getting the foid? And how much do they cost, etc?

FOID information

Seems like the best idea would be just to give them a call and, ask your questions....

Questions may be directed to the ISP FOID Section by phone at 217-782-7980 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. CST Monday through Friday.

You will probably get more accurate information this way rather than relying on opinions or incorrect information from unknown sources.

Here's what you need to fill out. It tells you everything you need to know.

Your misdemeanor is not a disqualification. And it's 10 bucks.

How does a misdemeanor keep you from getting hired?

Have you ever checked into legal methods of getting this expunged?
