  1. At this point, after getting no less than 50 pounds of junk mail from all these hacks, I'm 100% undecided. Unless I see someone I really align with on most issues, I might, dare i say, stay home.
  2. Oh boy, now I'm scared to shoot my AR 550 steel targets with 9MM. Those Blazer Brass 115 grainers are probably going to go right through those steels like a hot knife through butter. LOLOL My goodness, where does Joe come up with this drivel??? Seriously?
  3. I've been writing emails to the 10 RINO's all morning. Also contacted Joe Manchin and Synama is next <sp?> The key is to be respectful, to the point, and articulate. Even though they aren't our Senators we need volumes of respectful emails and polite phone calls going out to them. The more of us that reach out, the better our chances of getting one or two of them to vote no. Let's go, it can't hurt.
  4. Mauserme, Thanks, i sure hope you're right. We both know you've forgotten more about this stuff than I'll ever know, so I feel much better right now. Hope you're doing well my friend.
  5. From: The Truth About Guns By John Boch Date April 9, 2022 This bill appears to be a hugely damaging one to every Illinois AR owner. Worth a read, it's not good. This could be a huge hit for us, huge. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/illinois-ghost-gun-ban-bill-passed-in-dead-of-night-appears-to-ban-the-sig-p320-and-p365-unserialized-ar-uppers/ Sorry I missed the slips, I wasn't around.
  6. @solareclipse2, I 100% strongly agree with you, sir. No question about that.
  7. Our Meijer store use to be packed when we moved here. Every time we went, they were busy. Over the last several years, for whatever reason, the store is like a ghost town. I haven't been there in a while, so I don't know if they've posted that blue gun sign. I have to go now, just to check it out. I always carried there, as there were no signs.
  8. I agree, I stopped going to public ranges 5 plus years ago. I enjoyed shooting at my local public range. I met some nice people there and got help from some really amazing pistol shooters as well. then one day, a group of three guys came in, and what I saw was 100% clowns. Totally unsafe practices, clowning around, muzzling themselves and others. Yikes, that scared the heck out of me. The guy who was running the range that day called the three of them out over the PA system. He banned them for life and didn't allow them to go back to get their gear. He did that himself. It gets real intense, real fast when you have unsafe clowns on a gun range. We belong to a private club now, and I've only witnessed one group of clowns in the bay next to us. I walked over and respectfully asked them to tighten things up or leave, as we didn't feel safe. They tightened things up STAT, thankfully.
  9. The very first day I saw an FRT in action on YouTube, I thought to myself, AFT coming for these right quick. I've never fired a full auto, but I've watched a ton of videos. I know zero about about how full auto works. That said, the Rare Breed company is using the technical language of how their trigger functions in order to fight the AFT. I think it's likely a losing battle. Even if Rare Breed is 100% correct, who has the money to get into a full blown legal battle with the government who can print all the dollars they need? These kinds of triggers test the waters. They're also pretty useless in this time of super high ammo prices. I've never desired one of these, a binary trigger, or a bump stock? That doesn't mean I think it was right to ban bump stocks ot from a technical perspective the FRT. However, like someone else said, i love my family nd our dog too much to be the test case. Glad i stayed away. Meantime,, just out of curiosity, I went to Rare Breeds site last night. Unless I'm missing something, they're still selling these???? That seems like playing with hot fire (pardon the pen) to me???
  10. Irvin is a huge anti 2A guy. Don't be fooled by his nonsense. When i saw his commercials, I thought, hey I really like this guy for governor. Then I did my homework. He's right up there with the mayor of Highland Park and Oak Park as far as the anti 2A stance. I use to workout with the mayor of Oak Park back when I was still working in the city. Back then he was not mayor of OP yet and a restaurant owner. I'm sure he still owns multiple very good restaurants and is still a very nice guy, but he's also very anti 2A. I was disappointed to learn that Mayor Irvin was so anti 2A. I'm gonna blow with the wind and follow the pack here as far as who gets my vote for governor. As long as it isn't JB, and we can get a 2A friendly candidate, I'm good to go.
  11. I use to go to Mega to use the range all the time. I never had a single bad experience. When Pat left to move to Tn., it was still nice, but he was the best.
  12. I really don't like being one of those guys, not by by a long shot, but not only did I not renew, I called them and respectfully asked them to stop sending any and all communications to me in any form. ISRA, like the NRA, needs a complete reboot. We need serious leadership from people that aren't 90 years old. For a while I enjoyed reading Pearson's story time in his emails. I also enjoyed the newspaper they sent. That all changed when they sold us out. I bought a regular Life membership to the NRA, I've respectfully resigned that membership as well. GOA has been blowing up my mailbox with good and important issues that allows me to get in touch with our people in D.C. Granted, Tammy and Richard never reply with anything save for the Dem talking points pre written letters. At least they know I care and won't be voting for them.
  13. @illinois_buckeye Thanks, that's interesting. I appreciate your reply.
