  • Les, #3 under LE exemptions states "Wardens, superintendents, and keepers of prisons, penitentiaries, jails, and other institutions
    for the detention of persons accused or convicted of an offense." ,
    I would say yes, but IANAL, so check with Bud's customer service 1-859-368-0371 or check with your local FFL.
    As far as credentials, you would need to supply Bud's with a copy of your FOID card and Corrections Officer ID card, which can be uploaded here ,
    or faxed to 1-800-804-5569, or email to

  • Les, as others have mentioned since you're a correctional officer you should be able to purchase this but Illinois's gun laws can be confusing. Out of all the states believe Illinois tries making it so confusing that people aren't sure if it's legal and give up trying but from what I'm reading you should be able to purchase this. We're just customers as yourself though not buds employees, so we can only point you in the right direction. You can contact buds customer service at 859-368-0371 Monday thru Friday 9am to 9pm or you can use the blue chat button at the bottom right corner of your screen. They'll be able to give a definite answer. Sorry can't give a definite answer but hope this helps some. If interested here's a link to Illinois's restrictions........................
