Hello from Illinois!

Just wanted to say "hi." I received a 9mm ported Shield for Christmas from hubby and was looking for a place to hang out a little and get tips along the way. I grew up shooting a 22 bolt action rifle (courtesy of The BSA and a father heavily involved in scouting.) Hubby took me skeet shooting a bunch of times. I didn't get to shoot too much when kids were growing up but now it's me and hubby again (mostly) and date nights consist of range time now (YAY.) Any other gals out here?

Welcome to the forum, from Central Maine!

Sorry, I mean nothing personal with this, but I thought only gangbangers and cops had guns in the murder capital of the US. Clearly I've been operating under a misconception?

LOL, Oh no, there are a lot of us here in the suburbs that legally have our guns. It's so we can protect ourselves from those that inhabit "The Murder Capitol." when they decide they want what we have worked for.

Welcome from the frozen tundra. I have property up north and many of our neighbors are from the Chicagoland area, visitors and permanent residents. We love our firearms up here also. No offense to you or Illinois, but they moved to my area to escape " Chicagoland". I know how it is, as I live near a major city, and I'm trying to get up north permanently. If you like your guns, you can keep them
