    I guess there aren't any other GT members here in the Land Of Lincoln?

    I'm in NE Illinois. I actually know a number of 2nd-Amendment supporters in my area & further south but we do seem to be the minority when compared to all the Obama-ites :steamed: infesting our fair land. Guess that's why I do most of my shooting over the border in gun-friendly Indiana. ;)

    Im marooned here too....I expected to see many more no CCW signs, given the political atmosphere around here. I avoid Chicago city limits as much as possible.

    Hey Al, I'm in the Chi burbs too, far west. I like going in to the City on occasion for dinner or concerts but have never had the desire to live or work there. And yes, the Dems are still fighting against CCW tooth & nail, even though it's supposedly legal here now.

    I live south and work west. It's different these days.

    I'm tied here through family and work.

    I've shot an event at the isra range once, but usually I just hit the regular ranges, or shoot in the southern part of the state.

    My goal is to participate in organized events, but I never seem to make it to any of them. A lot of family obligations.

    Thought I was the only guy, living in this state of corruption known as IL... I'm glad to find out that there are some "free thinking" individuals, alive in this state.. Lol

    Mattoon. It's at least a 100 miles from anywhere. It's a little more lax here. Lot's of hunters and law enforcement seems to be on our side.

    I spent a few years in a town about 10 miles east of you.

    A mattoon local introduced me to the Villa lunch buffet years ago. It has long since burned down and been rebuilt as a take out place. At least that's what I'm told.

    Nice. The only sports I played in those days were drinking games.

    Indeed. I did get a nasty concussion during a heated game of flippy cup once.

    I'm up here just north of the 'cheddar curtain'. I'll be down for the IL deer opener. How's that new governor treating you?
