    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.

    I dont' know where you are in Chicago, however I have only heard good things about http://www.gatguns.com/ after going to their page to get the link it looks like Gunny is going to be there May 18th. They either just completed or are in the process of building more ranges and from what I understand they also rent guns.

    Maxons in Desplaines, they just moved into a new larger facility. Shore Galleries in Lincolnwood , but they don't have a range and won't sell new hand guns unless you are a cop. I've visited the new On Target in Crystal Lake a few times and like it.

    Chicago's a big place. Can you be a little more specific as to a general area?

    Midwest Guns in Lyons - good store, range and lots to rent

    Gat Guns in Dundee - good store, range and lots to rent

    Maxon in Des Planes - store and range

    OnTarget in Crystal Lake - good range, store OK but are happy to order whatever you want.

    MegaSports in Plainfield

    Article II in Lombard - store and range
