  1. Wait a sec - I'm a lifelong Chicagoan.... are you trying to say that there are REPUBLICANS in Illinois?????? *I are flabbergasted!

    Sig Sauer P322

    22plinkster has a very complimentary vid on the pistol on the old YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UtgKCBqMFU
  3. I am uneducated in this form of legal carry - can my Hoosier relative (who has an Indiana lifetime permit) use constitutional carry to carry in other States?
  4. What????? No K-Cup hot beverage maker????? Ya slacker.
  5. Just MY opinion, but you did ask-lol. Unless you have a specialized mission for your AR like say long-range or other type competition shooting etc., go with anything Mil Spec new manufacture with a 5.56 chamber in the color of your choice within your budget and have fun plinking away with what many consider the Lego version of a rifle. After you enjoy the basic budget system for a while you will find about a gazzillion aftermarket bells and whistles to personalize your rifle to your liking and hang as much crapola off the thing as you can afford and can lift without giving yerself a hernia. lol For fun plinking IMHO the low costs ones fit the mission perfectly.

    30 Super Carry

    And IMHO the answer to a question no one asked. I think we'd all prefer they instead added manufacturing capability to the always-out-of-stock calibers they currently produce? .410, 22WMR, 22LR and 9mm come to mine - lol.
  7. Hi Gavin, thanks for setting the record straight. I take it that the 10 hr classroom session on one day followed by a 6 hour range day is due to the large number of students in each class who need to qualify? It raises the question in my mind, If a student is in the first group at the range, what do they do for the remaining 5-1/2+ hours while there and so on?
  8. Most I see are about $250? which is 'almost' free, considering class time, instructor time, range time etc. Then of course the costs for the CCL itself. I am not aware of anyone donating their time, talent and range use?
  9. I'd suggest that if you are living in an area where you feel the need to carry an AR? Maybe it's time to contact a good real estate agent? lol
  10. As far as I know, there is no specific handgun requirement in the law? Also IMHO just about any kind of handgun is technically 'concealable'.
  11. I would quickly act and switch banks IF my curent bank gave me shoddy customer service, screwed up my bank accounts, or was near impossible to deal with over the phone, in person or online. I used to bank with TCF but had ZERO interest in what their corporate "politics" might be. They have since been merged with/bought out by Huntington Bank (they used to finance an SUV I owned). Again I have no knowledge and frankly zero interest in what this new organization's corporate "politics" might be. To date they have provided GREAT customer service, prompt and accurate account notifications and convenient handling of paying my scheduled bills. But that's just ME and how I choose to invest MY energy and emotions. How anyone else opts to make such choices is really none of MY business.
  12. I seem to recall an internet posting - I could be mistaken - of someone who despite the immense odds against it was actually noticed and challenged whilst carrying in a shoppe. It is rumored they said - "Oh.... there was a small sign on that door????? I'm terribly sorry, but I honestly didn't see it, I was stupidly occupied on my cell phone - I will gladly leave the premises immediately." And they then did peacefully leave without causing a commotion. Again, perhaps my memory is faulty, and I am NOT a lawyer (I'm poor folk - lol) so live your life accordingly.
  13. Nothing quite like getting mugged to turn a liberal into a conservative.
  14. Almost reads like a commercial for a painball gun....don't it? lol And if I pretend it's not a commercial? You whip out a pistol of ANY color and point it at someone? Expect a possibly VERY loud and potentially lethal response.
  15. A picture of Browning to hint at a John Garand rifle adopted in 1936? I kinda doubt it. But yes, the Hi Power was based on a Browning design, finshed in '35, long after his death in '26.
  16. Also..... maybe REALLY check your carry-ons BEFORE you get to the airport and attempt to carry them on? Another great tip? If someone steals your heroin or crystal meth stash? Don't file a Police report, especially in person at the station.
  17. Every day we can all rejoice in the prescience of Mrs Gump - "Stupid is as stupid does."
  18. The moral I draw from the tale is don't step in the middle of a 'domestic' dispute. I hear tell the 'domestic' is one of the most dangerous scenes to which a police officer is frequently called.
  19. "I agree with the OP. Unfortunately traffic is down and so is the quality of the content." As to traffic/quality... believe it or not there are members who've only orignated 6 or fewer posts since mid-2020. We all need to step up our game I reckon?
  20. "I am not and have never been a user of adult use/recreational marijuana, but have picked some up for a family member." Sounds like a straw purchaser to me - lol
  21. If you are a qualified customer - The CMP ships to Chicago, just received some ammo for a Garand. I didn't see them listed on the 1st page list, so apologies if this is repeat info? Civilian Marksmanship Program eStore (thecmp.org)
  22. I should also note another positive item, my new Glock 19 Gen 5 came with not one, not two, but three OEM magazines. I know it's not earth-shaking or anything, but it was a very nice surprise and is appreciated.
  23. IMHO in the HIGHLY unlikely event of my ever needing to draw and fire my handgun in a self-defense scenario, any kind of hollow point ammo will serve me just fine and dandy. My carry choice is factory made stuff - normally whatever was on sale at my LGS that I then function proved at the range in my chosen handgun. I remain of the opinion that shot placement ALWAYS trumps choice of specific ammo type/make or caliber.
