As of January 1, 2015, the Handgun Safety Certificate (HSC) program was replaced with the Firearm Safety Certificate (FSC) program. Under the FSC program, requirements that previously applied to handguns only now apply to all firearms (handguns and long guns), unless exempt. A list of exemptions is available on this website.

 

A valid Handgun Safety Certificate can still be used to purchase/acquire handguns only until it expires. For long gun purchases/acquisitions made January 1, 2015, and thereafter, an FSC will be required. Once an FSC is obtained, it can be used for both handgun and long gun purchases/acquisitions.

 

FSCs are acquired by taking and passing a written test on firearm safety, generally at participating firearms dealerships and private firearms training facilities. A Firearm Safety Certificate Study Guide, pdf to help individuals prepare for the FSC test is available for viewing/downloading from this website.

I still go back there as often as I can and since Illinois passed their CHL (Conceal Handgun License). I do put on Illinois Conceal Carry courses while I'm there visiting.
