    Hello from Downstate Illinois

    Just for the record, I hate the Chicago Machine. I enjoy living in Illinois and fighting with my fellow enthusiasts for our 2nd ammendment rights. A year ago I attended the NRA Inside the Home Self Defense Class and thanks to the state of Florida and Pennsylvannia, successfully earned my CCP. I look forward to the day where I can walk beyond my property line with the same protections and rights as those I now have in 30 plus states.

    I enjoy reloading, cowboy action shooting and learning from others about how to improve my shooting & self protection skills. I took a Edged Weapon Class with Steve Tarani last year that was an eye opener as well.

    Welcome form Virginia.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
