Northern IL Manufacturer Shoot

Just want to let members who are in Northern IL that the annual manufacturer shoot at GAT Guns in East Dundee is schedule for March 18/19.

Lots of manufacturers are represented here (I rep for CZ). For attendees, all you pay for is ticket to buy the ammo. Hearing and eye protection are provided, but I recommend bringing your own.

Before you travel all the way from Michigan, I recommend that you contact GAT and find out how they handle non-IL residents (since you won't have a DPRI issued FOID card). The requirement in the past has always been FOID to handle or fire the displayed firearms.

Thanks Eastman. I will try to make it. Maybe I'll finally get a chance to shoot a CZ.

I will have a bunch of them at the event (hoping to get a P-10c and Scorpion by then).

As I mentioned in my PM to you, I won't be able to make it. I'll have an extra glass of wine for you and toast to good event for you guys. Please let us know when your next event is locked in and ready to go. Still eager to fire a CZ for my first time.

My next two events after GAT are up North -
April 1 - Second Amendment Sports in McHenry
June 3 - On Target in Crystal Lake

Then a trip south to the ISRA range in Bonfield on June 17

September 16 - Maxon in Des Plaines

Hoping to add a few more to the schedule

Thanks for heads up. Yeah, Illinois is complicated. Will keep in mind, but looks like I will be in Texas anyway.

My plans are to go but am wondering when the best time to go?

Any ideas? I really do not like elbow to elbow crowds.

I seem to remember the Saturday crowd thinning out around lunchtime or so (noon-ish). That tended to mean a shorter line to get on the range. Sunday I was behind the CZ table, so I didn't have a good overall sense of the room.
