  1. The wife and I are basically looking for the exact place in Wisconsin now. Her parents who are retired will follow.
  2. No they just want unequal enforcement of the law, dropping or not filing charges against certain groups.
  3. I hope it is a "Micro Stack and a Half" similar to the 365 but...this is H&K. I love H&K but they always seem to be very slow in addressing the civilian market. I am gonna bet this is a regular single stack holding 7 or 8+1 and it'll launch soonish. Probably already entering production or soon to be.
  4. Me too! Great folks. Wish I’d found them sooner. I found a really nice used BHP-40 at a great price and talked myself into walking out with a new Sig Legion when I returned to pick up the BHP. I should have added a couple more used pistols to the ticket but I was pinching pennies. I am KICKING myself in the butt every day that I didn't buy that Nickel P7 they had for under 2K on Consignment. Those things are $2,500+ all day every day on gun broker.
  5. Added two more to the list, Jim's as well as Bridgeview Sports and Sales I was fortunate enough to enjoy the final sale at Schranks, not a place normally on my beaten path but a cool small shop and sad to see them go
  6. Supposedly only 2K FFL's out of roughly 4K FFL's in IL filed for a dealer license with the State.
  7. Well RIP Walmart. I am going to send them an e mail letting them know why they will no longer be getting my $150+ a week in business. I will buy home goods online, medication, etc from Walgreens or CVS, fresh foods and meat from Fresh Farm and everything else from Marianos.
  8. Dang bois we famous https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/new-illinois-gun-dealer-licensing-act-drives-over-50-of-ffls-out-of-business/
  9. Renewal Applied 4/29 w/ prints "Active" 7/19 Still do not have it in hand Side note; they did NOT re-issue my FOID near as I can tell. It still expires next June.
  10. I would say 75% of the posts here are 1st hand posts in Social or Traditional Media, mainly Facebook and local papers . I will admit I am not trying to call these places before posting the info; if anyone sees an error let me know I like to leave the Fake News to CNN.
  11. Added Really getting p***** seeing so many small , often multi-generational businesses getting stomped by the state.
  12. IMO a better avenue of attack will be this disenfranchises rural gun owners by removing their ability to easily access an FFL; similar to how closing down voting locations in rural areas or predominantly X or Y areas has been ruled unconstituional before.
  13. FYI I added 1 or 2 more and will keep doing so; if you want to post any I have missed here, or PM me. I will try to update this once every day or two. As a side note this mostly as we all knew but as the antis swore it would not is effecting small town gun dealers, many of whom I would be surprised if they sold ONE eventual crime gun a year; if one EVER depending on the length they were in business.
  14. I am going to drop by Gilmor this weekend if they are open and just see what they have. So far most of these closings are way out of my normal stomping grounds.
  15. Added a couple more this morning sadly. Seems to be a steady stream on social media of 1-2 per day now Mostly small shops too. This sucks.
  16. Thank you, if anything this may avoid having 50 individual threads over the next couple of months
  17. The antis know they are putting places out of business, they have the same sources we do, namely news media and social media.
  18. So I got the idea shamelessly from other sources but lets compile a list of all the places closed, moving or changing their business strategy as a result of the new dealer licensing act.
