Plus, I know of our state, we are not a "gun" state, but a "weapon" state. Legally, we can carry any amount of ammo on us, in our car (as long its under 1,001 lbs, after that, you need a transportation label of a 1.4). but other states, view it differently. Meaning... you may get away with trasnporting a few hundred rounds of ammo in the trunk. But what if you did spend about $2,000 (and I have seen people do that or more at those shows) on ammo... but in general, you are going to have way more than the public could get for at that price. For example, my uncle when the show a few years ago in St. Charles, walked aways with near 10,000 rounds in ammo (he hunt a lot in the south). I would imagine, if he had to cross IL, he probably would "violated" some law over there. Just my opinion... IL laws are the most BACKWARD since of earning money for the state. For example, Bellievlle have the "tire tax law" for its residents. Really???
I just pray for everyone who goes there have a great time and don't be bothered by the law enforcement.
