Yesterday (Monday) did a dry run to the range and thought I would see a few folks at each range....let me tell you, there was nobody at the range, I mean nobody!! nobody at the plinking range to the 1000 yard range, nobody was there!!

Am planning on heading to the range about noon on this Thursday....so we will see who is there then.....

Yari, I hear our moron of a governor (JellyBean himself) was up at one of his many properties in Lake Geneva last week.  I'd really appreciate it if you'd keep him up there.  He has horses up there, said they had to care for the animals you know.  Right, I'm pretty sure manual labor is never on his list of activities.

He's the biggest hypocrite I think I've ever seen - - a few weeks before that we learned his wife and kids were in Florida.  Mind you this is all happening while he's telling everyone in Illinois how important it is to stay home for everyone's well being.  For his sake he better not show up on a gun range.

mad- if he has horses on Geneva, he probably boards them at Wrigley's stables, yes of the chewing gum fame. let me tell you it ain't cheap to board there. I have clients that think it's smart to pay their crazy fees

do as I say, not as I do for most elected officials. didn't an ILL mayor's wife have a big party during lockdown?

Yeah - the Alton mayor's wife kinda ticked off her hubby.  To his credit though, he said she gets no special treatment and should be charged like everyone else at the party.  Wouldn't surprise me if JellyBean is boarding at Wrigley's, although it's just as likely that he owns a place.  Just saw a couple of weeks ago that he's carrying a net worth just above Trump's.  But being a Chicago boy of wealth and privilege it's not hard to believe that he's in with the Wrigley gang too.

Just filled out my application this morning to re-join one of our local ranges.  I can do most of my shooting here at the house, but they have some nice facilities and organized events that I'd like to get back into now that I have a little more time.  I dropped my membership back in the late 90s, hopefully they let me back in!  They've added a 300m range since then, and that's farther than I can realistically shoot here, should be fun.

Wow, glad to see all of yawl getting out....We were suppose to go this past Thursday but the forecast called for storms...turned out they were wrong and it was a beautiful day, great for shooting....so we blew it....We will go on Wednesday around noon this week!! Hopefully we will get this range visit in this time!!!.....Glad to see other folks out there as well.....

Kinda like the CDC or WHO or political office - no requirement to be right, ever, apparently.
