Would love to attend a meet and greet and shoot. There is the outdoor Buffalo Range Shooting Park (buffalorangeshootingpark.com) in Ottawa, IL. It's a public range with a rifle, shotgun, and handgun range as well as a plinking pit. Opens April 1st. Might this work?

Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.

Didnt hear the private sale talk. But, I do know that a bill is on its way to require a registration for a hand gun at $65 for the first year and $25 every 5 yrs renewal fee. Another bill is to throw a 2% tax on ammunition sales.

I dont have a huge problem with the registration fee only if a CC permit is attached to it. I would love to vote for Pliura but I dont know if I'm in his district...I'm new to the whole political thing.

They may not take away our 2nd Amendment rights however, they are making it difficult to own fire arms by making it too expensive. It isn't going to stop crime by slapping all these fee an taxes on us law biding citizens; criminals dont follow the laws; so, by passing all these asinine bills isnt going to stop anything!

That my 2 cents!

Thank you so much. I will look into this and report back. I'd like to find a restaurant nearby, too, where we can have lunch or dinner together before going our seperate ways. And maybe a hotel nearby if some have a longer drive and might want to spend the night.

Ottawa is in the middle of the upper third of Illinois. Right on I-80. Google a map of Illinois and you'll see it.

We have failed to keep this thread alive. I'd still like to see a meet'n'greet happen some time, though.
