I've been busy the past year or so and haven't been posting much anywhere. I recently found my way back here a few times and have looked in here each time to find nothing posted. So, I know what you're saying. It's just chance that I stopped by this evening on my way to check the tech forum.

Hey uncle albert, checking in from Boat and Saddle some were down the street from you.

Small world huh?

We've got a USPSA club IN McHenry, come on out & shoot with us !

To RagingBullWinkle....

If you're interested in checking out USPSA/IPSC contact me; We shoot 1st & 3rd Thur. of the month. If there's a 5th Thur, we shoot that also.

Yeah, go to Illinois to get a president.........duh..........Chicago, no less.

On something of a brighter note: CCW was on the ballot in four counties locally (not mine of course, since we are almost a annex of Chicago) and it passed overwhelmingly.........some by almost three to one.

I am about 45 minutes from both KY and MO, I want to secede from Illinois and join either one.

I'm far enough north to secede into WI, but then I'd be a cheezehead & they don't have ccw either...

Maybe I should claim Tribal lineage & declare myself a soverign nation.

There was a chance to vote on pushing for CCW in four local counties, it passed overwhelmingly.

I'm at the southern end of IL as well (Centralia).

It would seem that Cook county decides laws for the rest of the state.
Southern IL life is much different than Chicago.

On a larger scale would be like California deciding laws for the rest of the country.:faint:

You guys seem to forget, Crook Co. has enough voters (legal, live or otherwise!) to out vote the rest of the state, all they have to do is mobolize them. This time, unfortunately for the rest of us, they did.
But in some instances, street rumor has it that a vote could cost up to a carton of cigarettes ! But with the obscene amount of money the Dems had avaliable this time, it didn't matter.
There should be an investigation into the EXACT source of a LOT of this cash that was avaliable....how much came from "outside sources"?

Oh, I didn't forget. When that clown Obama first had his name on the ballot for senator, I had never heard of him, later I found out he didn't campaign outside Chicago.
The joke will be on him though (unfortunately us too) He is going to have to finally make a stand, after voting "present" his whole career. Let the voter remorse begin.

Hey fellas!

I'm a new Glock owner in IL and am very interested in getting started with competitive shooting and maybe even a little 3-gun if I can find someplace to shoot all three.

I'm about 20 miles north of Chicago and about 20 miles from WI.

Not bad, we've got a couple of ChiTown cops that are members of our club, also a couple of guys from WI.

There's only 1 public indoor range in McHenry Co. & that's where we shoot.
PM me & I'll get you up to date on upcoming matches.

Illinois is two states: Cook County and the rest of us (O'Fallon Guy here:wavey:). I would love to secede from Illinois and form a new state that follows the entire U.S. Constitution.

There was a grassroots movement to create the 51st state (S. Illinois) but I can't find a link to them anymore.......there was a thing on tv about it several years ago.
I wouldn't doubt if everybody south of I-80 would be willing to go with us, which would be fine. The only problem we have are those counties right around Cook.

Actually, the proposed seperate state (Forgotonia) was composed of southern & far western counties.

I'm unfortunately in a collar county.

But with all that's going on with Gov. Blago, MAYBE the Feds will be able to tie in the Teflon Mayor.
If we get rid of BOTH of them, we might have a chance at some decent reps in state gov't.

Or we could hope for a massive quake & drop ChiTown into the lake ?(the kalifornia solution)

I talked to (Rep)Jack Franks over Christmas. He's our local rep.
He said they're holding back on the impeachment thing so Fitzgerald & the Feds can get everything they need to hang Blago !
We're a Republican area, Jack's a Democrat, but he keeps getting re-elected because he doesn't BS his people ! Good guy & honest with the voters.

That is sure what crossed my suspicious mind when Fitzgerald made that one particular statement. It sounded very much like they wanted to end it because it might take a turn that they didn't want to deal with.

Franks is a liar. Anytime a US Attorney "needs more time" to get an indictment (Fitz requested 90 days in this case), there's big trouble in paradise.

The same range also has bowling pin shoots. There is a pin shoot tonight.(.22 RF) H P Shooting Center is in the basement of Wally's Bike Haven. Easiest way to locate it that I know of, right on Rt. 120, about 1/3 mile east of Fox River.

I am new member on the site from Central IL, Mt. Zion, to be exact. I am currently a Junior at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma, majoring in Fire Protection and Safety Technology with a minor in Emergency Management. I know several people from McHenry, IL, in my major and my roommate is from Crystal Lake, IL.

I am currently getting the funds together to pick a Glock 27 with a Lonewolf Distributors barrel to shoot 9mm. The forms have been filled out to receive a PA Non-Resident LTC, and going to use that to achieve a Non-Resident Maine Carry permit. Both will keep me happy until I can achieve the time frame and avaliability to get into a Utah Non-Resident Class.

H P Shooting Center is the only indoor range in McHenry County.
Our USPSA club, M.I.S.S. (McHenry IPSC Shooting Society) had a website, but our computer geek Jason moved to Michigan on us & no one has taken it over.
Since you're in Genoa, it might be closer for you to shoot in Rockford, either way, PM me & I can hook you up with someone from Pine Tree Pistol Club, they are the Rockford group. Or give you full info on our club in McHenry.
