we are fixing to head back to illinois to mash green headed mallards. i do not travel without my piece. the only state we have a problem with is illinois. i have read somewhere that if you are traveling from point a to point b and a you pass through unfriendly territory you can have a weapon as long as the your final destination is friendly. is this correct or did i read something incorrect. you cannot even bring a pistol into illinois. any help is appreciated.
