  1. Hey I appreciate the offer, very kind of you but I found out that I can take day 2 of the class at Shoot Point Blank for $99. Thank you again for the offer.
  2. That would work too. I've never seen anyone pitch it that way but I'm all for that. I just need to line it up and see what they'd charge me.
  3. I have a Utah LTC and a Hunter Safety card and passed NRA Basic Pistol. When I originally got my IL CCL I just needed an 8 hour class and to do the shooting portion. I let my license expire a couple of years ago now and have been meaning to get it back. Is anyone doing an 8 hour class in the South Suburbs or South Chicago area? or willing to do one in the next couple of weeks?
  4. Eagle always has inventory it's just a question of what you want and how much you're willing to pay for it. I bought my last two guns from there because they had them in stock when nobody else did and they were actually about on par with online (when in stock) pricing before tax. I've also seen them be over priced on regular stuff like Sig, S&W, and Glock compared to online pricing. As far as the clientele, it can be hit or miss which crowd you get but usually looks like one of two groups of people that are most likely going to shoot themselves in the leg/junk/butt or shoot someone else in the leg/junk/butt or head because they can't stop playing with themselves/their clothes/holster/whatever OR they don't understand "don't handle loaded firearms outside the booth" or "don't load your firearms behind the firing line". The staff is hard pressed to pay attention to me for some reason. It took a ridiculous amount of effort to make my last two purchases there.
  5. It's been a few months since I purchased a firearm but I have the unique fortune of being the only person in the country with my name and as a result I enjoy not having a delay ever. One of the very few good things about being me. Sorry. Just had to brag.
  6. So did he threaten her with the gun? If not, she had to understand the consequences of calling the police right? Or are they having some sort of marital issue where she's determined to wreck him? Seems malicious on her part. Or maybe she's just stupid. I guess never attribute to malice what can be attributed to stupidity. I guess we can ignore that she told the police everything was fine and they entered anyway and just skip to the intent of the law as written. Someone already questioned how they're defining intoxicated by I'm questioning the "carry or use any firearm". Does being in possession of an unloaded shotgun in your own home actually constitute "carry or use"? That seems like a stretch to me, intoxicated or not. That notwithstanding, this guy could have been sitting on his couch in his boxers drinking his six pack of Natty Ice watching the Beverly Hillbillies or whatever it is people in Ohio do when someone kicks in his door looking to score some crank or whatever it is people in Ohio do and Weber could have yeeted this fool and still been charged the same.
  7. Does this mean we can get a SBS in IL too? Just curious. I'd like to turn one of those "not a shotgun" things into a SBS. If I go through all the effort of doing an SBR lower I'd do the shotgun too.
  8. Asking for a friend - How does a law banning "silencers" prevent someone who has decided to shoot and kill another person or persons, from deciding to use one anyway? Why would they ignore the law against murder but obey the one against using silencers? Your friend should ask the people sponsoring that bill
  9. I mean, it was the "victim"'s fault, had they just given the robber whatever they wanted, none of this would have happened. /s
  10. There's a brown line stop at the Thompson Center so I'm going to count this. https://www.google.com/amp/www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-off-duty-officer-shot-downtown-20180213-story,amp.html
  11. Weird...Looks like maybe someone's personal vehicle that they put the white flashers on...noticed the strobes when they pulled up. They all got out and at least one, I think two or all of them are wearing body cams and have real looking badges. Their vests clearly identify them as sheriff's police. NOW all of that can easily be fake too and you get no real sense of legitimacy from any of this and I wouldn't open my door to these guys or give them anything. BUT wouldn't you think that there would be some record of 3 sheriff's deputies showing up at someone's house if it were for some official purpose?
  12. If you're willing to share the video, I'd like to see it as well. This has my interest piqued.
  13. Detained him, how? You know what I know, but it's fun to guess so I'm going to say she tackled him and sat on his chest til police arrived.
