Let's let this one build up some momentum.

We'll plan for Gat Guns at 6pm on Tuesday 1/13. I'll contact GAT and let them know we're coming . . . .

After that we can go to Bandito Barney's - or anyplace else nearby that anyone has a hankering for.


But I need a HEAD COUNT!


If you're pretty sure you can make it, post here. If you're bringing a guest, mention that as well.

Who's coming????

When you check in for the range at GAT, they don't check for a FOID card if you have your own gun and ammo; they will ask you for it if you buy ammo from them or rent a gun to use on the range. Of course, under Illinois state law, you have to have a valid FOID card to possess a firearm and must have the card with you if you're transporting the firearm in your vehicle.

Is having a valid FOID card a requirement to participate in this event? If so, then I will only be able to watch. :cry:
You don't need a FOID to shoot somebody else's gun! Just come with us. Most guys bring several guns - I will probably bring 3 or 4 - including some new toys I'd like to "show-and shoot"!

You can also bring rifles that shoot handgun ammo. I just got a Marlin model 1894 lever action that eats .44 magnum that I might bring....

Hurricane...as Stagecombat notes above, you can still shoot without a FOID card if someone bringing multiple guns lets you use theirs. You have to rent earmuffs and eye protection if you don't have them, as well as put a deposit down (I think it's only $2) on a target holder...then, there's the range fee itself. So you see, it's just a matter of covering those costs and you can participate in this. I have only one gun, so I can't help you out on that score, but it sounds like more than a few of the guys who are coming are bringing more than one.

I've done that, the target was getting boring and then WHAM, no more target hanging there, best $2 I spent! You can make your own with a short piece of PVC pipe 1/2 inch diameter and a big clip.

I think everyone that's gone shooting has taken that stick out. My shot went through the metal clip. Left a hole, but the clip still worked so they gave me my deposit back. That was way back at Peppers in Glendale Hts. Anyone remember that place?
