Date...at a shooting range

Hey all I feel a little embarrassed asking this but here it goes...

My gf and I have never shot firearms before and from what a friend told me over drinks one day, we are interested in spending an hour or two at a gun range to see what it is like. We would like to know if you guys have any recommendations for a range in the Chicago/NW suburbs that can give us some pointers beforehand without being jerks about it.

BTW we are applying for FOID cards ahead of time. Thanks!

Illinois gun works Harlem and grand

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Why be embarrassed...it shows you're way smarter then the typical gun owners who just think bullets+gun+range=shooting fun.

Hire an instructor if nobody from the forums has time to give you the basics. Also check out the NRA pages for some beginner and safety tips.

I only shoot the shot gun there on Sundays to piss off the .22 caliber guys. every time you walk in they ask you what kind of long gun, I tell them its just another .22 and then BAMMMMMMM the range gets quiet and they have the most priceless looks on their faces wondering WTF just happened

Also GAT guns 90 to 31 south its on the right side of the street a mile or two down

Corrected it for you, but for the local folks like me, that is plenty of time and very convenient. Altough, it gets pretty busy, how is Gunworks regarding the wait time to get on the range?

A cold Saturday or Sunday afternoon it fills up. I never had to wait though.
