First time posting from the Chicago suburbs

Hello Everyone,

I'm on the edge of buying my first Glock. I've watched more hickok45 videos than I care to admit. Herr Glock defiantly owes than man a commission or two for the videos.

Right now I've got a Springfield Armory 1911 in .45 and a Beretta M-9. I'm a member of a gun club in my area. It's not really close to where I live in the western suburbs of Chicago and is frequently unavailable on weekends. It's a shame to live within 20 miles of being "out in the country" and still not have a good place to shoot. One of these days I'll have to buy some land and setup my own shooting compound!

If anyone is involved in GSSF shoots in the area I would love to get in touch.

Thanks

Welcome to the site!

You ever get out to the Hoffman Estates Cabelas? Nice store.

Good to hear some folks in Chicagoland believe in the 2A

Jay,

Yes I've been there several times. My wife has decorated a bathroom in Labrador Retriever paraphernalia from that Cabela's. We have a 3 yr old Chocolate Lab. I'm a lot closer to the Bass Pro Shop in Bolingbrook.
