If you put them on a semiautomatic you could have a problem

I know of a lot of people who have been checked this snow season by state wardens and there was nothing said about the extension tubes. They checked licenses, shells and thats about it.

That law has a TRO against it for the entire state by a Federal judge. Bujy what you want and use what you want. Probably be tied up until at least it is appealed to the Illinois Supreme Court. That is what my local State's Attorney told me.

Two federal cases. We lost one and the other is still being decided. Eventually, it will probably end up at the US Supreme Court.

I had a guy tell me last week that wardens weren’t even saying anything about the tubes when they checked people. He claims they can’t do anything to ya cuz they’re attached to the gun itself, and they aren’t removable like AR magazines are…. Not sure who is right and who is wrong as I don’t use one so it doesn’t apply to me anyways
