As of last week, there was approval given for a new indoor range in McHenry, IL.
It will probably take at least 6-8 mos. to do, but the building exists, the people behind it HAVE THE MONEY, & the city council has approved.
It will be on the site of the former Sullivan Foods store, right on rt.120. The folks involved already have a gun shop operating in McHenry, & this will be a move to a larger location.
I'll try & post more details as I learn them.

No more news yet, but the partnership doing this already has an established gun shop & F.F.L.
No news on any construction starting yet.

This would only be about 20 minutes from my in-laws in Fox Lake. That is pretty exciting. My brother in-law is always wanting to go shoot now we would have a place to go. Keep us updated.

You are making Cook County angry with your evil gun range.

Everytime you shoot a gun, God kills a kitten.

Every time I shoot a gun, GOD doesn't HAVE to kill a kitten......or at least a cat.

Biggest complaint I've heard so far about "On Target" the new range in Cr.Lk. is the high cost of shooting there.
But being a brand new outfit, they've got a big nut to crack. They have a rather large staff.

I just bought my G23 from OnTarget. I live in Crystal Lake so I have been in there a few times looking at different guns and finally decided to buy one. They are really busy but both ranges are really nice. I was at a small gun shop in the basement of a store on 120 in McHenry a few months back and it was pretty small. is this the one that will be moving to the new location? Has anyone been to Marengo Guns?

Sorry, I should have posted this a couple of weeks ago.....

The plan for the new range in McHenry is over.....deal is NOT gonna happen.
Let me explain:
The building that was planned for the new range, & approved by the McHenry city council has a problem with ASBESTOS issues. The person that was planning on buying it & building the new range & the current owner couldn't/wouldn't come to an agreement as far as to who was going to pay what to resolve the problem. The prospective owner wanted a reasonable concession from the current owner, who was apparently willing to give none.
So the deal is off, the flea market/stolen junk sales continue, & McHenry doesn't get a nice new range.
tallen122, no, the basement range (HP Shooting Center) is located in the building that has been a gun shop/range since the very early 70's, and was not the business that was going to build the new range. I worked at that shop 4 owners ago, starting in 1997, but currently work at HB Arms, located in Lakemoor, about 3 miles east on 120. Unfortunately, we don't have a range. I do shoot at HP, and the owner is rather a decent chap. There are .22 cal. shoots on the 1st & 3rd Fri. of the month, starting about 6:00 PM.

As far as Marengo Guns, they have extremely low prices, due to the fact that they seem to make most of their income from the coin/gold business. Guns just seem to be a sideline, even thou they have a large selection. Having never been there, I can't honestly comment on customer service.
