  1. Have you seen this bill HB 4244: https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/BillStatus.asp?DocNum=4244&GAID=16&DocTypeID=HB&LegId=137267&SessionID=110&GA=102 ? It requires healthcare providers to put your vaccination status involuntarily in a government database. Might be one to witness slip against: https://my.ilga.gov/WitnessSlip/Create/137267?committeeHearingId=18917&LegislationId=137267&LegislationDocumentId=172649 Status Here: https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/witnessslip.asp?DocNum=4244&DocTypeID=HB&LegID=137267&GAID=16&SessionID=110&GA=102&SpecSess=
  2. Wow, we're getting spanked. At least so far. I know it's easy to fall into the 'my voice is ignored' trap here in the People's Republik of Illinois but we need to step up our game. If we have to go into that good night, let's not do it quietly.
  3. Whoa... I can post again! ^^ Was just going to say what happens when they decide you're not worthy of your CCL anymore and now you no longer have a FOID card to maintain legal possession of your firearms?
  4. I have a Beretta 92 frame I've detail stripped, cleaned, and I'm ready to put it back together. I've seen some vids that say you should put gun grease on some of the parts, in fact some show the application of enough gun grease to fill cavities and completely encapsulate parts. This seems like a bad idea to me just due to dirt attraction and the inability to flush out dirt with a spray cleaner. In other words you'd have to regularly detail strip the firearm just to keep abrasive buildup from accumulating. I've seen others that say run the gun dry with just needle application of mineral oil to slide rails and maybe a drop or so on the hammer and trigger pivots. My guns see light use (especially now with the availability and cost of ammo) and I don't want oil drying out and gunking up the system either. I typically clean my guns well with Hoppes or CLP and wipe them down as good as I can. Then I run an oiled patch down the barrel and put a couple drops of oil on the visible moving parts. I probably put too much on even there but I'd like to do it right. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
  5. I expect she voted against concealed carry but it looks like she and her husband sure thought it was a great idea for them.
  6. Now if only you had provided the link so we could file our own witness slips... This link: https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/billstatus.asp?DocNum=1169&GAID=16&GA=102&DocTypeID=SB&LegID=133801&SessionID=110 doesn't seem to be related.
  7. I'm looking at Wilson, Chip McCormick (CMC), and Ed Brown. I hear you can't go wrong with the Wilson's but I also hear all of these are good. Ed Brown has a program where you turn in your old mags and they'll sell you their life-time warranty mags for $10 (stainless) or $15 (black nitride coated stainless) which is tempting. Any thoughts?
  8. I wonder if Kyle Rittenhouse's attorneys should pursue this line of legal genius.
  9. ahem... 🙄 I just punched in Mossberg S-130 and answered my own question...
  10. Found this in my FitL's pile of stuff. Does anyone have any idea what rifle it might've been for? He didn't have any Mossberg rifles that I'm aware of.
  11. LOL, while I agree, I can see the anti-2nd-amendment people say 'so, it sounds like you have no objection to having to purchase gun-owner insurance then'...
  12. I am very much against the idea that the FOID and CCL are combined into a single card. Lose your CCL you lose your right to own a firearm in Illinois? Depending on the circumstances that could very much be abused...
