    I went to the WalMart On 30 and orchard today. They had 15 boxes of WWB Valve in 9 and a ton of 40. They proablly had about 30 Federal 9mm boxes too. I have NEVER seen that much there before

    I'm in Sycamore, but work in LiTH by Algonquin. I shoot my handguns at GAT Guns range in Dundee, certainly not cheap by any stretch, but convenient. Where do you guys shoot your rifles at?

    Streamwood here. Usually shoot at GAT.

    The Streamwood Wal-Mart had a full ammo case today. Just about all calibers in stock. The clerk was shocked. He said it was usually empty by noon after filling it at 10.

    Do either of you shoot IPSC/USPSA ?

    We have a USPSA club in McHenry. M.I.S.S. (NI09) is our USPSA club #
    McHenry
    IPSC
    Shooting
    Society

    We shoot on 1st & 3rd Thursdays, also, if there is a 5th we shoot that.
    Our next match is 4-29-10 & is going to be our club's steel shoot, man-on-man, dbl. elimination.
    Local range is HP Shooting Center, it's under Wally's Bike shop ! East of Fox river about 400 yds. North side of Rt.120

    We start sign up around 6:30 PM & try to be shooting by 7:00

    Show up & ask for Albert (me), let me know "who" you are.

    I shot IDPA at HP a few times but every time I went It got more and more crowded. I think the last one I went to we only got 2 full stages done and a quick 3rd... I've been going to the out door ones in racine. Lots more shooting. Is the USPSA packed too??

    We usually get 15-25 shooters, last night we only had about 16, but several regulars are down at the Single Stack this weekend.
    We try to run at least 1 decent length stage, plus a classifier every night, last night, no classifier, as it was the club's man-on-man steel shoot, double elimination.
    If I do the stage design, I try to get a min. round count of 24 & have had several I designed that were at he USPSA max of 32 rds ! (yes, IN he basement).
    I find IDPA like watching paint dry !
    I was a founding memnber of BOTH the IDPA cliub & M.I.S.S.; My membership # in both clubs is/was #10. All because I started competing with a G20. If I took the numbers as they came up, I'd be #3 in IDPA & #4 in M.I.S.S.
    Our next shoot is 5-6-10 (1st Thur.), like to see you show up, ask for me.
