Could you Illinois residents say get a WI corporation and buy under that corporation?
You could keep the full auto item in a locked case with a friend in WI or the dealer, I know that is legal.

I know that you have to pay the $200.00 BATFE tax to the feds, but exactly what would I have to go through and what price would I have to pay to fulfill the lifelong dream of owning a full auto Thompson? I probably sound like an idiot, but this is all new to me.

Like so many other state where the government does not trust the people - a state where a large number of class action suits are filed due to liberal judges - have you considered taking up golf?

Even if you pay the $200.00 tax they won't approve the transfer because Illinois doesn't allow individual ownership of NFA Title II firearms. Don't waste your time, move to an NFA friendly State.
