How many of us are from northern Illinois?


May 13, 2007, 08:23 PM
Please post a reply if you live in "the other Illinois" as somebody from Sparta (World Shooting Complex) said earlier this week. I've only seen a handful in earlier threads, so speak up!

(and yeah, this could lead to an Illinois focused thread in Activism later!)

SW Burbs, in a nice town next to a crappy (drug, gang infested) town where you should be able to carry.

Crook county, Town of Stickney.

I'm in southern Will County, almost in Grundy County.

As my location says, "Not far enough from Chicago."

I'm working on it, though. If I can last until I retire, less than 7 years, that's when I'm bailing. Illinois is a bad state to retire in, it's not just bad for guns.

The only things I like about Chicago, are the White Sox, Bulls, and BlackHawks. Sometimes the Bears. The rest of the city leaves me cold. If it fell into the lake, I'd just switch to bottled water and drive on.

Frankfort, IL

Just out of Todd Stroger and Daley's reach.

I'm originally from Henry County (way out in the cornfields!), but have been living in the PRK courtesy of the USAF for the past few years. I still have family back there that I try to keep involved in all the madness coming out of Chicago & Springfield.


May 14, 2007, 05:02 PM
FROM there, but not planning on coming back.

Dupage County

Near DeKalb...

May 14, 2007, 08:43 PM
I live in Carol Stream (DuPage County). I am going to NIU (DeKalb) next fall, far away from my guns :(

May 14, 2007, 10:14 PM
If you are on campus at NIU you can (afaik) store your weapons at the Campus Police office. You may find them all-pushed out of shape about it (who knows). Or, rent a you-store-it type locker from the campus copy people or similar outfit and keep a low profile about WHAT you are storing. Sycamore Sportsmans is nice and lots of folks have 'shootable' land in DeKalb and would likely let you work out with your gear.

And, as I've said--eat at burritoville often (I miss it so).

May 14, 2007, 10:23 PM
Ah, Burritoville, where the "baby burrito" is nearly the size of one's head.

I grew up in Kane County in the Fox Valley. I left when I joined the military. I never went back and never want to live in Illinois again.

South-west of Rockford. Nice small town. Lots of people still don't lock doors, even when they are not at home. Really.

I can show you some nice places to live if you want to come this way. I am a real estate agent.

I grew up west of Elgin (near Plato Center), and lived near Woodstock for many years.

I (thankfully) left the People's Republik of Illinois 7 years ago for "free America", and won't ever be going back, even though I have friends and family there...........
