If you guys want i can bring some toys but no nfa stuff across the evil border. I dont think i can shoot at the ranges there but i can provide some boomsticks to try out.

But you will need to clarify with the range owner about whether a wis resident can bring guns for you guys to shoot in your dungeon of a state

Jon, It will be fine, as long as it's an Illinois legal gun, you know that, sorry. It's only a 100 yard range though. Tell me, do you have a Scar..?

Jon, my first thought was the range that you shoot at but I know we all just can't converge an them enmass. The range you shoot at is AWESOME. I'll be up there shooting with you again in the Spring.

I understand. It would truly be a bit reckless to open a range to a bunch of people you don't even know. The liability would be out of this world. I respect you for your decision. I think a public range would be the best way to go. I do hope you will join us, though.

I am near the 80 and 355 intersection but I would be willing to drive a little bit for a meet/shoot. There is Buffalo Range in Ottawa Page 1

I do. Gat guns is great place. I'm about 30 min away from gat. I usually go to article 2 in Lombard. But am willing to go outdoor further.

My sister lives on the northwest side of Chicago just south of 90. I could possibly make it up.

I would also be interested in meeting up. I live near Chicago Exec airport (formerly Palwaukee airport) in Wheeling.

BTW: GAT is supposed to have their new ranges open by the end of March - Two 75yd, two 50yd rifle ranges, plus their usual couple 25yd handgun ranges ... all indoors.
