I grew up on the SW burbs and went to school at the Univ. of St. Francis in Joliet.



Came to Oklahoma 6 years ago, and you guys would be amazed at all the shooting opportunities here.



I hope you all work hard to protect your gun rights up there.

good luck!

Ok all the Central / Southern area Illinoisans. Where is the better / cheapest place to purchase the MP15? I'm looking to buy and would like to buy locally so if there's any problems I could take it in for repairs? Do you all think that doesn't matter because they would have to ship it in for repairs anyway? Otherwise I'll more than likely go the G&R way. Thanks in advance!!

Tanker--

The best place I've found for guns period is Hick's Trading Station on Rt 13 just outside Pinckneyville. I've bought 6 guns from them. Good, standup guys, laid back atmosphere. Just stand and BS with them a bit and you'll get a heck of a deal.



BTW, I'm in Carbondale.

I'm down here in Carbondale as well. Also, would have to second Hick's as a great post. Although, there are a few other great shops within/around Southern Illinois.
