Yeah, if I NEED something that day like if we're going to shoot shotguns or something I usually hit up Farm & Fleet in Elgin to avoid the stupid Cook County tax.

I've been stuck using Cabelas a few times in Hoffman Estates and that tax just kills it.

The other funny one is I tried to order 17 round magazines from gunmagwarehouse for my Glock because they were on sale....

Get email saying they cant sell them to me because I live in Cook County.

Go to Cabelas in Cook County and but 33 round Glock magazines for the PCC no questions asked.

@Kensington

Just for giggle had my buddy check the pricing from TargetSports with the "Prime Ammo Membership"....... A case of Blazer 124g is normally $179.80 for 1,000 rounds. The Prime Ammo price for that same case is $165.42 for 1,000.

The membership is $95 a year but you get those kind of price breaks, on top of them sending you some free ammo to try once a year based on what you purchase (Usually like $50 worht of free ammo give or take), plus they occasionally email you special offers only available to Prime Ammo members. We just recently got BOGO boxes of Federal 124g hollow points for example.

Fast, free shipping, etc. Especially if you and your friends are buying any ammo with commas in the totals, I would say get the membership.

Not going through THAT much ammo yet, but I'll keep it in mind, if I ever get to that point

Are you shooting full size 9mm's or compacts and sub-compacts?

I cant believe how much more controllable my G34 is with the 147g Fenix stuff running through it.

Shooting my buddies guns for now, until I decide where I want to go with my gun purchase. I'm waiting until after the wedding, a bit more stable cash flow, and try out a bunch of different guns.

I keep forgetting you're out in Streamwood. I'm out in Hangover Fart pretty regularly, as my buddy lives right at Barrington and Irving Park rd.

Yep, live here and work here. I'm over by Streamwood High School.

Are you wanting a gun for home defense, conceal carry, both, or just target shooting?

Two of mu buddies have CZ Shadow 2's for target shit and those things are ridiculously nice shooting guns. Im still waiting to shoot a Sig P320 Legion, those might be the combo to have....

I doubt I'd do anything competitive...I've got the shakes pretty bad but just for fun target shooting would probably be my primary thing. Not super interested in concealed carry at this point. And before I got something for home defense, I'd definitely want to get the wifey at least a little comfortable.
