    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post and I wanted to post here first. I was born in Lucban but moved here to Chicago when I was a year old.

    I've been shooting since I was 7. My dad was NBI when we lived out there so his love of guns was passed down to me.

    Besides shooting, I'm also a reloader. Haven't done it in awhile due to family and work.

    I was just wondering how many of you are in the Chicagoland area.

    I look forward to contributing on this board.

    Hi CBRG :)

    I don't live there, but I pay extended visits every couple of years.
    I usually stay near Alsip and Oak Lawn, (Ridge too)
    ...a fair bit south on the Orange, plus some driving.

    Chi-town itself seems a pretty tough place for defensive gun ownership,
    but the food, friendly people, and the screwy weather make up for it.

    Welcome!
    I myself dont reside there but my folks and my sister are all residing in Hanover Park. I worked for three years in Bloomingdale and have studied at Chicago for two years before my wife bugged me to come home here in our Lupang Hinirang :)

    Welcome, CBRGlocker. I don't live in Chicago either, and I've never even visited the States, but my dad is also a retired NBI agent, which is how I grew to love guns too :)

    I lived in Chicago for 25 years before moving to Texas because of a job transfer. I used to live in the Northside, then Skokie and lastly, Cary. I shot Highpower Rifle with the Illinois State Highpower Team in the late '80's. I've slowed down a lot lately due to a growing family.

    I can hook you up with some of my friends. They do a lot of IPSC and attend the Nationals every year. They all moved out to the Burbs, Grayslake, Vernon Hills, Gurnee, Schaumburg,... since Chicago has become very Anti-Gun with Richard Daley.

    horge:
    I used to hang out in Oak Lawn a lot. Had a girlfriend who lived around Cicero and 95th Street.

    PMMA97:
    I also have friends who lived in Bloomingdale, not too far from Stratford Square Mall.

    To All BOGs:
    I want to say HI. I was born in Lemery, Batangas, moved to Chicago in the early 70's and am now living in Mission, Texas for the last 6 years. If there is anybody from the Rio Grande Valley, give me a holler for a get together. RGV, where the food is hot and the women, hotter.

    How are you pare? Happy New Year to you and to your family. Mr DG is in the Phil, so wala akong ka-jam dine. Mr T in Naperville was encouraged to try IPSC so he's training hard these days. One of my pare is teaching him the basics since they live on the same area. His first big match will be on April 29/30 in Barry (SSC) and then Nationals kung OK kay J. Nice to recognize your post.
    Regards,
    Galil

    345,

    I was born there but came to the states when I was 1 year old. My father was also born there but grew up in Lucena.

    I sent you an email.

    Terribly late, but hi Booker3557!

    Near Cicero and 95th? I'd pretty often be on Pulaski and 95th,
    lugging groceries out of the Jewel or the K on the corners. Haha!

    I'm in Indiana ... dangerously close to Illinois, but I refuse to go there. :steamed: I've been boycotting Illinois because of its gun laws since 1998. ;I

    If you Illinois guys want to shoot with us (USPSA, IDPA, 3-Gun, NRA Action Pistol, Steel Challenge, Bowling Pins, etc.) here in America some time, come on over! ;f

    I live in the Northern Chicago burbs in Lake Co. I mostly shoot out in Bensenville. We have a little club there called NITac. It's the only indoor range in IL that let's us do what we do. Here's our site: www.nitac.org. It hasn't been updated in a while though. Send me an email if you're interested.
