    For the most part, all of these things are under my control and should be under the control of any driver.

    Well as far as accidents, they are called that for a reason. Otherwise they would be called "on purposes". While I agree uou may be able to control most things like you mentioned but you can't control the other person. 

  2. Correct me if I'm wrong but my understanding was that normally, Federal Court rulings like this only affected the areas that the particular circuit covered. In this case, the 10th Circuit Court that covers Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, and finally Oklahoma. It wasn't a nationwide ruling until a decision came from the Supreme Court?

  3. I am one that is cross eye dominant. Right handed left eye. Like @Dumak_from_arfcom mentions, move your left leg forward which helps with the stance. One added benefit as far as a self defense situation, this type of shooting will reduce your profile and offer a smaller target. I can draw fairly quickly and get on target quickly as well. My left leg is forward and I blade my body and right foot slightly turned to right. My head gets turned slightly to the right. If needed, I'm already in a good position to drop down on my right leg to lower my position. I don't know how long it would take to train your other eye but it can be done.


    Although I shoot handguns this way, I never felt comfortable shooting long guns this way and still do a traditional right hand right eye shooting.

    I am in Northwest Cook County. I use SG Ammo and I have no problem at all.  What was the issue that got them on the lost cause list? 

    There is a big difference between retailers that will ship to Cook County and ship to Chicago. Many retailers absolutely refuse to ship to Chicago which is what this thread is about.

    I do hate this one. Civilians need to act just like the rest of civilians. They can pay their fees to the crown and wait forever just like the rest of us. 

    I wouldn't consider a sworn Correctional Officer a civilian. Besides being sworn, they had to undergo many hours of specialized mandated training to be able to do their job. And they would also have to qualify every year unlike civilian CCL holders who only qualify every 5 years. And if a Correctional Officer fails to qualify during an annual qualification, they wouldn't be eligible to carry. And retired Officers would also be required to qualify every year unlike civilians and also pay an annual $75 fee if they want to carry as well as have a valid FOID card.

  6. Just the middle of last month, I was notified by my FFL while trying to do a transfer that my FOID came up as invalid. I was surprised because I have had it for a while and it's supposed to be good until 2021. I contacted someone down in the FOID section in Springfield. He ran my info and said my FOID was still showing as valid. He did say that they were in the process of switching to a new computer system. He mentioned to have my FFL try running my info but leaving out my middle initial and that should work. Not sure how my FFL guy ended up running my info but he did get the approval and I picked up my new firearm last week.
