LOL. Yes we are. Normally out at Rinks. Proximity and cost have recently dictated the ranges for me. Although I would really like to check out that Article 2 up in Lombard. I was thinking of finding a private club; conservation club or lodge or something. Either that or I'm going to have to find another state, lol.

I hear ya. Rinks is the only range I go to. They need to step up on ventilation though. I heard of article 2. I also want to check it out. I'm over in bridgeview. How long u been shooting?

I still can't believe Midwest charges 20 for range time. I think in a few weeks I'm going to go check out Mega over by romeoville.

I also frequent Rinks. IMO they are the best around on a budget but certainly not with ventilation. To be honest it is so dark in there that I don't like shooting when all the lanes are full. Mega is a good spot though.

I'm headed to Rink's tonight. If you see a huge fat guy shooting, I'm the skinny (er) guy next to him
I've been to Article II a few times, and it is really nice. The RO is kinda a douche, he wears a drop leg holster all the time and kinda has a crappy attitude, but they let me shoot my BP stuff there and the ventilation is very nice.

I've only been shooting a few years and looking only to continue to get better.

LOL JD! I'm in the house tonight. Workin' early tomorrow. Although I do need to get out and put some rounds downrange soon (and more often).

I almost sense the beginnings of a meet up sometime in the future.

nite, let me know how your experience at Mega goes. I heard they were expanding, wondering if they finished it.

Will do. I'm trying to stock ammo as much as I can. Went to wal mart the other day. Man they were wiped clean. Except for some 40s and 45s. No federal. I bought one of the blue boxes of 45s they had. Never seen em before. New stuff. Wonder how they are. I'm gonna check out Wally world in darien tomarrow and see what they have. They usually have a good stock.
