Do you guys ever get together to shoot?

This will be my first summer with my weapons, and as much fun as it is to go to Illinois Gun Works alone, wondering if any of you guys get together and shoot? I'm really the only person I know with any weapons, so unless I'm bringing a friend to the range, its a rather lonely affair.

I'd be cool to go out with people more experienced than me, it'd also be cool to do things like practical shooting events.

Do do you guys doing any CLSB shooting days?

There have been range days in the past but I haven't seen one for a while. I actually haven't been out shooting since I moved to Aurora so I wouldn't mind doing a range day again. Sunday mornings would work great for me.

I think your 1st problem is shooting at IGW. That place is a dump!!! Check out the zombie shoot at Aurora Sportsman Club. A lot of us from sites show up there. Been looking for something to get going on this. Would be nice to see a CLSB vs CR.us shoot out

If my weekends weren't so booked, I'd try and put something together at ASC.

After April I'll see about pulling small groups together for an ASC run.

If we didnt ban smartdrug, I'm sure he would have posted an outing by now. We chatted over the winter about setting something up once the weather got warm. Too bad, that guy was the shit when it came to organizing the weapons forum outings.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

According to SD, when he attempted to log in and learned of the ban, he said the system stated it was permanent. He has not received any official communication stating otherwise. And my requests for clarification from CLSB Staff were ignored.

And we call FA a weapon if it is intended to protect yourself and every American's freedom.

But I agree. In this environment, I will call my firearms a firearm.

As you were.

They got too big, too quickly. Increased rates, fixed times for reservations, etc. I went a few times when they first opened but no longer...

they had to do it to stay organized - too many people - if you plan a little ahead and reserve a lane - it's a great place to shoot

I have the annual membership there. I like the place. Had one bad time there with a staff member that was rectified by the owner. It's close, good for winter. I would rather take a drive and be outside. I will am going to get a membership at ASC so if any of you guys get anything for referrals let me know. Gonna sign up in a couple weeks
