IL Ranges

I went to www.wheretoshoot.org and found a variety of ranges. Where do you guys shoot in the Chicagoland area? I'd like to be able to find a place in the South Subs with a pistol range. Also, if any of you have experience with central IL ranges, that advice would be appreciated.

Right on Beaufort St around broadway I think. down the street from the gas station they are rebuilding by the south side of ISU there is a place called guns 'n' stuff, go ask them. It almost looks like its in a small office building.

There is a gun range in Midlothian if you want to join a bullseye pistol or air pistol league.

Guns 'N'....... Text books?, 'N'........Condoms?, 'N'..........Cheeseburgers?

What 'Stuff' are they talking about? And what a perfect place for a gun store next to a school?

I used to go shooting while @ Bradley at a place call Darnells gun shop in Bloomington (when I was there it was a farm, with indoor pistol and 100/200 yard ranges with a trap range as well.

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

I go to Darnalls while I am down here. I am looking for one at home. I have been into GunsNStuff, they have a website, www.gunsnstuff.com . They have been getting all kinds of heat for being so close to a school. Lots of articles have been written how every college freshman that gets depressed is going to walk in there and buy a gun to kill him or herself. Ridiculous...

South Burbs = anything South of Devon. OK, maybe Peterson. Don't you know anything about Chicago?

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.
