New member from IL

#1 Post by NegativeApproach » Tue Jul 10, 2018 1:41 pm

From the little town with the skyscrapers in the NE corner of the state.

4th gen, trying to find reasons not to leave. Often shoot in Indiana DNRs, but also go to Eagle, and Midwest Guns pretty regularly.

CCL holder, and fairly active. Looking to get into distance rifle this year.

Thanks for the board! It's nice to see a pro-gun site where I hopefully won't have to temper my political view.

Welcome from the vicinity of the little town with many civil wars monuments, both north and south, in south central PA.

Welcome, from Chicago. From a legal standpoint, if you're carrying in Cook County I strongly recommend a 10-round maximum magazine capacity. Yeah, I'm well aware of the preemption clauses of 430 ILCS 65/ (FOID) and 430 ILCS 66/ (FCCA), but they're not absolute. Cook County Ordinance 13-O-32 is valid and enforceable; don't run the risk of getting prosecuted under it. Good luck, stay safe.

Greetings from Illinois on the other side of the State along the Mississippi!

Not familiar with that ordinance - Apparently your telling me that Cook County has an ordinance prohibiting mags with more than a 10 round capacity. I was not aware of that. Both my main EDC pistols would be in violation of that ordinance.

One more reason to stay out of Chicago and spend my $ elsewhere as I just don't need the hassle.

VooDoo

Welcome, also from Chicago, also under the tyranny of the 10-round magazine limit. I'm on the fence now and I will be bold and tell you to understand that there's a law and you may do what you feel is just under that law, as I do.

Was wondering, though, where do you go to shoot, and where do you shoot distance rifle without driving a similar distance first? I suppose that answers my question

There was a new member from IL
who pursued a perishable skill
spent time at the range
so the gun was not strange
and has lots of fun shooting stuff still.

Welcome from northern California, home of the Mother Orange Tree--I've seen her.
