Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The Preacherman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a gun and learn how to shoot." The Gunman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a Bible and learn how to pray."

New Waukegan Gun Range Nears Completion

A big "THANK YOU!" to Mr. Frank Orsi and all of the others who built all of this for all of us.

Members only, limited shooting for this weekend (8-lanes of their total of 22)
I’ll be using this event as an opportunity to spend some quality time with my .38 Super. 

The date of the public grand opening is not yet available.

I had a tour of the facility back in September when I signed my membership; it sure looks to be a top notch facility; a big-dollar investment.

EDIT:  I took a few pictures of the Saturday morning (11/1/2014) "Range Warming" event and decided to just append them to the (above) original blog entry, along with some photos that I took back in September.  

I am going to love having this range so close to my home; it is only three miles away.


This is one big facility.  There is great potential.

This is nice.  No guessing how far the target is.  Input the distance you want to shoot and voila.  
This hightech gear does not come cheap.  


This was my lane.  I did 3 x 9-round magazines on this one target and called it a day.


Here are some other morning shooters.  This room is the 8-lane Combat Range.  
The other lanes are still works-in-progress, but should be ready in short-order.
