    In anticipation of obtaining my FOID card, I've been strolling around the internet doing a little research on CIVILIAN LEGAL Assault rifles, the only hard part is finding out which rifles are legal or not.

    Anyone have any useful information for me?

    Specifically, I cant find SHIT on whether this one is legal for me to own:

    SIG SG 550 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And yeah yeah, I need to find a good site where I can look up the damn laws for myself, but again, I'm having trouble finding one of those, that is user friendly.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Yeah, I think what its gonna come down to is waltzing into a gun-shop and having a low-key conversation with a dealer.

    I'm looking for something halfway affordable in terms of the actual weapon, ammo, and magazinesl. Its gonna be awhile before I find that one right purchase I suppose.

    :confused:

    KK, you really should. I've got a feeling you'd love shooting.

    Targets, you understand. Perhaps birds. Not people. Don't let me put that into that multi-colored brainpan.

    here, section 29-49 deals with assault weapons, but you should probably talk to a knowledgeable dealer as well.

    Aaaw shucks ... I was looking forward to the bigger game. :razz:

    I'm a blade and archery person, there is something about "silent but deadly" that got me hooked on them. Well trained in martial arts, so the blades just added more to what I already know. But for the archery, there is something about being able to build the weapon "on the fly" and the sport of it all. As I said, I understand how guns benefit most people, I just never needed them or enjoyed them. I fired a couple (22's, one rifle one pistol) but always go back to basics.

    I apprciate the info Del.

    Illinois sucks! Due to the long list of rifles mentioned, I had to scratch a weapon or two off my list, and now I have to go through the rest and make sure they dont have a bayonet mount, flash suppresor etc.

    Its a good thing my dad and grandpa were both lawyers and have many lawyer friends in the area, I think its time to call one up and have a chat tomorrow.
