Hand gun registration

My Father passed away several years ago and most of his belongings were boxed up and stored.

I went through some of the boxes during Christmas and found a handgun, nine shot .22 revolver in great shape that had been stored away.

My question is how do I get this gun registered in Illinois? I have a valid FOID card, but really have no bill of sale or anything else for the gun which I left in storage in Kentucky.

I've searched the State Police website but can't seem to find information for this specific case. I'll call the State next week, but wanted some input before I do.

Thanks for any advice.....

1st, I'm sorry for your loss.

As far as the firearms goes, if you are the heir to it, have a valid foid and a death certificate your pretty much good to go.

call me for further details. PM for the number if interested.

Thanks Officer Ponch for the phone call! I'll follow up with the State Police, but it sounds like there won't be a problem.

yup, just get yourself a safe and keep your papers, you don't need to register it with anyone.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!
