Am I in deep doo-doo?
« on: April 13, 2008, 10:42:24 AM »
If you look on the Illinois State Police website regarding our FOID cards and forearms regulations in Illinois, there is a definition of a firearm and ammo as regulated by the FOID law.  It goes something like - anything that discharges a projectile of over .17 caliber powered by expanding gas or escaping gas.  I may have oversimplified the definition or screwed it up somewhat, but I think that's pretty close.

One day I was reminiscing about my childhoos near Austin and Roosevelt (GrimJim will know eher that is at), and I remember how much fun I used to have with a "Bean blower" and a box of dried whole peas.  I got some very thick plastic soda straws (without a waiting period or ID check) and some peas and had a ball.  Filled my mouth and shot them on full auto.  Gave one to my 9 year old nephew along with his own box of peas too.  Sometime afterward I read the definitions and regs .  OH, OH!

Am I in deep doo-doo?

I'm sure when cement man was a kid that area wasn't so bad yet. No offense intended.
