    I found a foid card of my grandpa’s that expired in 1973. I believe the foid act started in 1968,so would this be his 1st foid card. I’m assuming that it was good for 5 years. Thanks

    Does anyone know if this would be one of the first foid card issued?

    More than likely yes as you are correct that the FOID was enacted in 1968.

    When first enacted, the state contracted with a private firm to make the actual cards. They worked at least two shifts out of a building on south 9th street, in Springfield. Several of my old buddies worked there the summer of 68.
    With all the BS going on with backups, maybe the State Police should re-hire that firm to make the FOID cards again.

    That would require them admitting there's a problem and giving a **** about fixing that problem. Can't see that happening but I'm sure your comment was in jest anyways. I actually don't believe there's a "problem". They're doing exactly what they want to do, hamper our rights. :mad:

    I believe a law suit has been generated.
