When I lived in Illinois and had FOID card (1970s-1988), it allowed me to purchase and own firearms and purchase ammo. Still had the 3 day waiting restrictions for handguns. No firearms were "listed" on the permit. I freely purchased and sold firearms among my friends. It seemed more like a formality than anything.
