Lol

Sorry bro, chi-town did a comprehensive ban on firearms some time ago. Then in 2010 (I believe that was the year) the Supreme Court said that was no go so they developed laws that were the next best thing. There are no dealers or ranges anywhere even near Chicago. You can't even carry one so a shop would do ya no good.

Pretty sure this is the current conditions of Illinois gun stance.

There are plenty of gun stores in Chicago. You should be able to find one of the street vendors on the south side any evening during the week. Inventory is mostly handguns, but they don't make you jump thru legal hoops and do a bunch of paperwork.
