    Hello from IL

    Just wanted to say hi. I am a Network Engineer in the suburbs of Chicago. I have been shooting for about 22 years now. Rifle, pistol, trap, ect.....

    Recently took my Utah and Florida CCW class. Looking forward to being able to carry outside of IL. I am a firm believer in our 2nd amendment rights and hope it is just a matter of time before IL will allow CCW.

    Looks like a great forum! Thanks.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! You people in Illinois have to vote the bums out of office like we did up here. As it is I don't think you have much of a chance of getting concealed carry.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
