    Hi all, I am going to be in Chicago (Maywood) for the weekend and would love to find a range at which to shoot pistols. Outdoor preferrably, but indoor would be OK.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    You will NOT be legal in Chicago.

    Closest to Maywood would probably be Maxons or GAT guns. A little further is Midwest guns. A search will get you their website. I don't know of any outdoor ranges close by.

    You could also try JR Shooting Sports in Aurora. Before you spend the time to drive to any of these places, give them a call. They are very inconsistent about what the rules are with regard to out-of-state shooters.

    Thanks Ming, I contacted Maxon and they said I would be able to shoot there no problem.

    A long way from heaven and too close to Chicago
    Visit lovely Indiana. In between Chicago and Lafayette are at least 7 handgun and rifle ranges all within 10 miles of I-65. Besides, it would do you a world of good to visit a free country after being in that particular area.
