Did you make it there? The friend from work had to cancel, but I went anyway (after stopping at Freddie Bear in Tinley Park to fill out the 4473 paperwork on a GunBroker auction item).
The way they set up the rifle and pistol ranges was to have frames pre-filled with clay pigeons. Every so often, they'd declare a ceasefire and swap the empty frames for full ones. A lot more practical at an outdoor range than changing paper targets.
I really enjoyed the blackpowder area (I'll plan to spend more time there next year). Now I know what I'll be buying myself as a present for when I turn 50 in a few years.
Did a comparison of the LC9s Pro to the Glock 43. Of the two, I liked the feel of the LC9s better. It certainly had a better trigger than the Glock.
Really liked the Sig P220. Looks like they are on the expensive side ($1100+ MSRP), so the SR1911 CMD in some form will be ahead of it on the buy list (possibly LW or NW).
I had a blast shooting clay pigeons with the 12-ga pumps (both a Benelli and Remington 870). Now I have to decide for the future if I stay with 20-ga (which I've owned for 30+ years) when I move from single shot to a pump.
Tried one of the new tricked-out M1A rifles with a really good Vortex scope. That was a sweet combination.
all in all, it was a good day
