Wow. Slow weekend in Chicago. You can tell it's getting cold out. The shootings decrease when it's cold but picks up during the holidays when 'families' get together.

I would guess most of the wounded are 'colateral damage' of people getting caught in the cross fire. Either that or the thugs need to practice their aim from shooting out of a moving car.

Im not risking my life for 14 gold coins, I have a right and Im going to use it regardless of what the law says . I figure if I cant get myself out of a bind with 14 rounds of 9mm PDX1s I shouldnt have been there anyway. You know your in a bad spot when the owner of the shop is standing there watching over you with a .357 while you cross the road back to your vehicle
I don't blame you.

Hahaha........Beast. I don't have the prices of all the guns at GAT guns memorized. Here's their link. Give them a call. They are wonderful people there and will surely help you with prices.

If you ever want to take a drive downstate I can recommend a couple. Pekin Guns in Pekin, Il is the largest downstate dealer. He usually has somewhere in the 700-1,000 in stock. It is hard to get an estimate because it is just overwhelming. At my usual shop the 15/22 runs $450. I picked mine up at a gun show for right about that price.

All from violence

GAT Guns is a great place. I have always been treated very fairly there. The sales men and women are very knowledgeable and have all the time in the world to help you. I bought my last gun from there and I have shot at their indoor range. They will help you pick the right gun and they have a large selection for you to handle and look at. From used to brand new. It's a great place.
have bought my last 3 guns at gat. good prices, friendly staff.

range is not the greatest but they are building a new one.

I agree. They have the lowest prices around. The staff has been very good to me in answering my many questions and explaining things to me when I look at guns.

Yeah, their range sucks but it's better than the range I sometimes go to in Loves Park. That's the range at The Bullet Stop Gun Shop. I did see that GAT was building a new range that will accommodate some different calibers of rifles they can't accommodate now.

Well maybe he wants to support a local business, maybe he does not want to pay the transfer fees which many times make a purchase about the same as paying tax. There are still people who feel that supporting small, local business's is a good thing. Maybe drop by the intro section and tell us a little about yourself, or are you just a shill for a web site that does not pay to advertise on this site.

Of course they are because they're shooting sideways like gangsters. I tried that as a joke once and shot the wall. Not good.
