LOL, Rink's. Bring your own hazmat suit or enjoy the black lungs.

I don't think I've been to IL Gun Works before.

BadTaz will have to jump in here lol

"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."

Heard that on the news as well, they mentioned that the instructors were the ones with the major exposure.

I've only been there once, but I did not find it anymore "dirty" then any other place.

IGW is my pop's business. I do agree with you that the place is a dump and needs a good face lift but the building owner isn't willing to keep the place in a good condition. At this point I can't make too many comments since this will be going to court as most of the claims are false. But we shall see the outcome. I know Elmwood Park has been trying to find ways to shut the business down since they want to purchase all the buildings on that block for redevelopment.

I use to have to qualify there for work, but the place has gone down hill BAD. There is no reason why it can't be updated interior wise and cleaned up. The last 2 times I've been there they had groups of 10 pant saggin shitboxs shooting the same Glock sideways running thru 500 rinds in 8min then leaving. There is no safety on that range at all. That same day an older white guy took a round to the face off the wall. To me common sense says you don't need that in your range. You can't blame the building owner for not having ventilation fans and clean atmosphere. JMO

I've never been there, but I want them to walk through GAT. The ventilation in there is awful.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

It's a Shit hole with less than desireable clientele.... But its pretty damn close to me and can't beat the price. My favorite is when it rains hard and they have to out out the buckets. What do you think will happen?
