December 30th, 2010 Results ... Stages for January 6th, 2011

News & Announcements
Thanks to everyone who came out last night! From all of us at MISS, have a safe and Happy New Year!

A few of us are going to head out to the Pine Tree Classifier Match on Sunday - if you're planning to go, but we missed syncing up, we'll be there ~7AM. There are about 9-10 of us planning on making it out there. Get on a squad with some familiar faces and at least that's one ball in your court!

I've been working on a side project, WIIL Shooting, which is going to be a blog & calendar tracking ALL local "action pistol" events - USPSA, IDPA, "Urban Action", non-sanctioned matches, pin-shooting, 3-gun - in the Northern Illinois & Southern Wisconsin area. I've got a few more clubs to list - Oak Park & NISA to name a few - but expect to see these listed in a few days. Check it out and feel free to pass it along: http://wiilshoot.blogspot.com/p/wiil-shoot-calendar-events.html. There are so many of us "action shooters", that it is a shame a lot of us don't know about each other's clubs, etc.


Stages for 1/6/2011

We're going to run "Madness" as a classifier, then build a course around that. Expect 2 courses, because the classifier is somewhat tough to tape...

Dunno what the second stage is going to look like yet.


Results for 12/30/2010

We had 21 shooters - thank you to Tom P. for helping to run the line and to Albert K. for coming out with (almost) ALL the steel! We're going to shoot this format again on March 31st, 2011.

Since there are no times/etc, we just track back from the first place...

  1. Les K. - Production
  2. Deus Z. - Limited
  3. Doug S. - WITH A F'N Revolver! Srsly mad props!
  4. Jason C. - Production
If anyone has video of it, post it on Youtube and send me a link!

UPDATE: Jason C. sent me some vid!

A few folks have asked me what I use for mag pouches...

They're Ghost Magazine Pouches - you can mount 'em traditionally or perpendicular to your body.

I saw Ben Stoeger with 'em and decided thought it made a lot of sense... I'm surprised that they're made of cheaper ABS plastic, but they seem to have held up pretty well.

Merry Christmas!

Possible great news - a wonderful Christmas surprise, really!

Since the election, it looks like Pine Tree Pistol Club in Rockford may try to have the 2011 WIIT (Winter Indoor IPSC Tournament) in March!

Scores from 12/16/2010

Many thanks & Season's Greetings!
I'd like to thank all of you for your patience - both on waiting for these scores and also for dealing with some of our changing formats this year.

Additionally, on behalf of Julie S., Tom P., Albert K., Jerry G. and I (Les), have a Merry Christmas - we hope to see you on the 30th for our "Eve of New Year's Eve" vs. shoot-off.

Scores and a Quick Discussion...
Scores and classifiers have been posted to USPSA. For some of you new folks who have signed up to USPSA, know that it'll take you 4 classifiers to get "ranked" and that they only update the USPSA database once a month, roughly around the 15th. So, if you check, you might not see something posted as of yet...

For those of you that haven't signed up with USPSA - please don't forget to do so: It is only ~$25.00 for an Associate Membership...

How USPSA calculates classifiers: Top shooters at larger matches post results for most of them and USPSA decides on a "maximum Hit Factor". From there, USPSA determines your class based on what % of that maximum Hit Factor you clinch:

Grand Master 95 to 100%
Master 85 to 94.9%
A 75 to 84.9%
B 60 to 74.9%
C 40 to 59.9%
D 2 to 40%

For some classifiers, the max HF is fairly low (like CM 03-08, "Madness"), but on others, it is quite high - like the one below. Keep in mind that each classifier is testing various skills - the one below tests relaxation while shooting, the ability to "rough-index" the firearm, and ability to reload.

Scores delayed...

Sorry folks - ran outta steam last night... I'll get those scores posted on Saturday AM.

A few of us talked about the "Tueller Drill" last night... Xavier Thoughts had a great summary:
A common test of handgun skill is to start with one’s hands at shoulder level with a holstered gun and place two shots on a target 21 feet away within 1.5 seconds. Typically, those well trained with handguns can complete the drill in about one and a half seconds, although a select few can place the two shots on target in under one second.

Over two decades ago, Sgt. Tueller wondered how quickly an attacker with a knife could cover those same 21 feet. So he measured as volunteers raced to stab a target. He determined that the distance could easily be crossed in 1.5 seconds. These results were first published as an article in S.W.A.T. Magazine in 1983 and in a police training video by the same title, “How Close is Too Close?”.

Here is the original article by Dennis Tueller.

YouTube has a few videos of this drill - most suck - but the following is from a match. The target clears the distance a bit fast and the shooter is a high masters level competitor, but you get the picture just how fast things happen...

2011 Florida Open

A few MISS members make it down to the Florida Open every year...

Ken R, Jerry G and Myself are planning to shoot it all on Friday, February 18th, 2011.

If you are interested, get in touch with me - my email is on the right ------->

We're planning on sending all the registrations together, so bring your $200.00 (entry fee) and paperwork on 12/16/2010 match. We do this so that they will squad all of us together.

Paperwork is here.

December 16th, 2010 Stages - Updated!

We'll be running CM 06-03, "Can you Count?".

Here's Phil running it last year:




Since the classifier is a bit longer - due to two strings - we'll be setting the following simple, standards-like, stage up...



Starting from Box A, engage Target 1 with only 2 shots. While on the move, engage Target 2 while between the boxes with only two rounds. From Box B, engage Target 3 with only 2 rounds.

Virginia Count - 6 rounds total - 30 Pts maximum.

30 Steps to Mastery.

http://ben.casnocha.com/2010/11/the-30-steps-to-mastery.html

The 30 Steps to Mastery

The commenter Onjibonrenat, on my post How to Draw an Owl, adds a few more steps to the process of achieving mastery:

1. Start
2. Keep going.
3. You think you're starting to get the hang of it.
4. You see someone else's work and feel undeniable misery.
5. Keep going.
6. Keep going.
7. You feel like maybe, possibly, you kinda got it now.
8. You don't.
9. Keep going.
10. You ask for someone else's opinion--their response is standoffish, though polite.
11. Depression.
12. Keep going.
13. Keep going.
14. You ask someone else's opinion--their response is favorable.
15. They have no idea what they're talking about.
16. Keep going.
17. You feel semi-kinda favorable and maybe even a little proud of what you can do now.
18. Self-loathing chastisement.
19. Depression
20. Keep going.
21. You ask someone else's opinion--they respond quite favorably.
22. They're still wrong.
23. Depression.
24. Keep going though you can't possibly imagine why.
25. Become restless.
26. Receive some measure of praise from a trustworthy opinion.
27. They're still fucking wrong (Right?)
28. Keep going just because there's nothing else to do.
29. Mastery arrives, you mistake it for a gust of wind.
30. Keep. Fucking. Going.

Short Notice: Dec. USPSA Class at Maxon's in Des Plaines.

Perry, Greg and TD are doing another Introduction to USPSA class Dec. 17, 18, 19.

Class size is limited to 10 people and costs $125.00 plus Maxon’s $30.00 range fee. If you’re interested in taking the class, please let me know.

Calendar Update & Some Notes.

We used to run our calendar through the McHenry Co. Sportsmen's Association, but we're now running our own calendar - turns out that monthly views are broken in Google cals, so we're going to display an agenda view until they resolve.

Please note that McHenry IDPA matches are also listed...


Please note that beginning in January we will begin asking competitors to be USPSA members. The link is here: https://www.uspsa.org/uspsa-join-renew.php

There are two types of memberships: "Associate" and "Full Member". The difference is that "Associate" members do not get the monthly magazine and pay $25.00 instead of $40.00. The magazine is pretty cool, but nothing earth shattering - I used my $15.00 to buy some more ammo...

December 2, 2010 Results

Sorry that we didn't get to shoot that 3rd stage - we're still working some of the kinks out of the sign-in process and still fine-tuning what we can actually get away with...

Also - we are planning to shoot on 12/30/2010 - all steel, quick stages, perhaps double elimination...

Next match is 12/16/2010...

Squadding - This worked well!

Thank you to everyone who came out last night and were patient while we tried to explain our new policy changes.

Overall, we were impressed: Even with the late start and high volume of shooters, we were able to get out early, give the new shooters adequate time and grab pizza in a timely fashion!

For the next match, we have a few more tweaks:
  • We will cap at 27 shooters - 3 squads of 9.
  • We will have 3 sign-in sheets to speed sign up. Bill has graciously allowed us to use the front room as a sign-in area. Thanks Bill!
Please, do keep in mind that starting in January we will require USPSA membership to compete - except for new shooters who will have a month to try it out.

Cheers & Thanks,
-The Mgmt.

Upcoming Club Changes - Please Read!

Dear MISS competitors,

The MISS directorship met recently to review the match-to-match operation of the club and decided to change a few aspects of its functioning in order to ensure a smoother match, better stages and a less stressful experience for the RO's.

Please review the changes below:

Membership:

  1. The current membership system is too cumbersome - we will revert back to a fixed $15.00 match fee for all qualified competitors (see #3 below)
  2. Existing members will be refunded the $15.00 overage that they paid in the form of prepaid match fee to be used no later than our last shoot in the 2010-2011 season.
  3. Membership in USPSA will now be required to shoot, with two exceptions:
    1. Prospective members will have a one-month grace period to assess MISS/USPSA-style shooting.

    2. Existing club member that are not USPSA members will have until January 6th, 2011 to become USPSA members.
USPSA Rules:
  1. We are a USPSA affiliated club and follow the current USPSA rulebook.
  2. Competitor equipment - in regards to firearms and placement - will be inspected on the line by the RO. (If you have questions regarding your equipment/legal placement, please ask and we'd be happy to help you.)
  3. We will be enforcing USPSA's rules regarding disqualifications (DQ). Competitors that DQ will be coached through the DQ in order to turn the experience into a learning one.
Match Structure:
  1. Matches will be capped at 27 competitors.
  2. Registration will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis, with the exceptions being the current Range Officers, Match Director, and Range Master.
  3. Scoresheets will now include the waiver and emergency contact list on the back - failure to fill it out will result in dismissal. (Please note that it is MISS' general policy not share any personal data - other than scores and names, which are necessary for USPSA scoring - to 3rd parties)
  4. Entries will generally not be allowed after the first walk through begins, except at the discretion of the Match Director and then only as a courtesy for such incidents such as inclement weather, vehicle problems, etc for known competitors.
  5. The scorekeeper shall not tally points on the line and shall focus on getting the shooting order called out.
  6. Squadding:
    1. We will run three (3) squads of up to nine (9) shooters.
    2. Only the current squad and the RO will be allowed on the range under normal circumstances.
    3. All squad members are requested to be in the range while their squad is shooting.
      1. Members waiting are requested to setup/tape.
      2. Only members currently shooting, on deck, or in the hole are exempt from setup/taping.
    4. The RO's will be distributed among squads so that they can focus on their match performance.
    5. The third squad will generally be reserved for new competitors and will be assigned a "mentor" to guide them through the match.
EMERGENCY ACTION PLAN:
  1. The four rules (Cooper's Rules) of firearm safety will be discussed at the first stage walkthrough of each match.
  2. The Match Director will identify emergency personnel at the beginning of each match.
  3. In the event of a serious injury, the squad should clear the line and notify the Match Directory immediately.
  4. The Closest trauma center is Centegra McHenry - that's where we will request you be taken.
  5. Several competitors have trauma kits - one will be on the line at all times in case of incident.

We will be running the classifier CM 99-10, "Times Two". Here's a link to Ben Stoeger running it at 100% - Easy!

Additionally, we'll be running "Head Games".


It is a bit confusing, so watch Phil B. do it from last year:

2010-2011 Season Set to Begin!

Hi Folks,

Hope you all had a great summer and are ready to start shooting USPSA again!

As always, we shoot indoor USPSA the 1st, 3rd (and 5th, if there is a 5th...) Thursdays of the month at HP Shooting Center in McHenry, IL.

Sign-in begins around 6:30PM and shooting starts at 7PM.

We try to shoot at least 2 stages a night and generally try to make one of those stages a classifier. We will post stages ahead of time where/when applicable. Unofficial aggregate results will be posted here and official results will be posted to USPSA. We will continue to post scores/classifications within 24 hours of the last shot.

Additionally, there are a few minor changes this year:
  • We've changed some of our fees:

    • Cost for non-members is now $20.00.

    • Members shoot for $15.00, after a $15.00 membership fee.


  • We require all participants to have a waiver and registration sheet on file - this needs to be filled out once a season.

  • We require Illinois participants to present a valid Illinois FOID card at sign-in.

  • Please gear up as soon as you get there and know your shooting order.

  • Help to tape targets between each shooter - the quicker we run, the more stages we'll be able to complete.



Cheers!

3-Gun Test Run...

One of our members, Larry Noble, put this together and he'll be running the show… If you are interested, drop him a note at: zulumailx@aol.com

MISS 3-Gun / Multigun Matches:
 

We've been approved by the RCLRC range in Wisconsin to have three 3-gun matches:
Saturday, June 19, 2010
Saturday, July 17, 2010
Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010
 

Stage preparation and registration will start at about 1:30 PM. The safety meeting will be at 2:30 PM with shooting to start soon after. The match will, most likely, end around 6:30 PM (depending on the number of competitors).
 
For the first match (Saturday, June 19, 2010), the match fee will be $15, $12 for MISS Members, and $10 for Match Helpers (Keep in mind $10 is the per person fee the club pays for range usage.)
 
This is a great opportunity for those getting started in 3-gun to gain experience and have some fun. Of course you will want to make sure your gear is ready to go, and you're familiar with the classifications and rules at http://www.uspsa.org/rules/2010_Multigun_Rules.pdf
 
The matches will be held at the Racine County Line Rifle Club (RCLRC), their website is http://my.rclrc.net/, and the range can be found on Google Maps at: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=42.836577,-87.831402&spn=0.011754,0.02738&t=h&z=16/  Please note, there is significant road construction on some of the roads west of the range (Exit G from 94 is closed, parts of 6-Mile Road are currently under construction.) Also, 7-Mile Road does not go through (stops at railroad tracks). If you're not familiar with the area, give yourself an extra half hour to find the range. See the directions below.
In the near future we will have information and updates on MISS' Blog: http://www.miss-uspsa.blogspot.com/
 
Now the important part... 
 
If you are interested in attending, please contact Larry Noble at zulumailx@aol.com to let him know.
 
Also, would you be interested in helping setup / run the match?  It would be great if we had some extra Range Officers, Scorekeepers, and other helpers.  If you can, let Larry know as soon as possible. (Note: It would be fantastic if you have 3-Gun/Multigun experience, although it is not necessary, you would still be an asset for stage preparation, safety management, etc.)
 
Thank you, have a great summer,  and see you at the range!
 
Directions: If you're taking Interstate 94 from Illinois, you'll probably want to cut over to Route 31 (Greenbay Rd) South of the range, at 4-Mile Road for example. Take Route 31 (going North) to 6-Mile Road, take a right turn (going East) on 6-Mile Road, and take it about two blocks to Michna Road. Take a left on Michna Road (going North), go one mile on Michina Road until it stops at 7-Mile Road. Take a left turn at 7-Mile Road (going West) and take it until it stops at the railroad tracks (road surface turns to gravel). Now take a right turn on the gravel road (going North), you will now be driving parallel to the railroad tracks (which will be on your left side). Take the gravel road about a half mile, you'll see a small sign for Racine County Line range. Turn right and go through the two gates into RCLRC. Follow the main road all the way to the 25 m & 50 m ranges at the end. Note: Please keep your speed low on the gravel roads, 5-10 mph is best for safety and to keep dust down.  Thanks

Thanks for a great '09-'10 season!

We had a great '09-'10 year! Thanks you to the regular crew who made sure everything was running smooth, in order and on time! Additionally, a big thank you to everyone who came out and shot with us - don't be strangers next year!

We'll be shooting Thursday October 7th, 2010 and kicking it off with our homage to Jeff Cooper by shooting "El Presidente" and possibly all or protions of the "Mexican Defense" (Which to give props was discussed by Rob Haught in this quarters IDPA's "Tacitcal Journal" - shame he didn't give the COF/layout.)

The time to practice (both dry fire and live fire) is now! Be sure to check out the other venues that we've plugged here.

Lastly, please check your USPSA scores/classifiers on the USPSA site - I've had to post an addendum for one of our shooters and I just want to be sure that I didn't miss anyone else...

Have a great summer!

Scores from 5/20/2010

Thanks to everyone who came out to our banquet - good food and good cheer after shooting always makes for a blast!

We'll start shooting again on 10/7/2010 - dust off your El Presidente, as this is ALWAYS our first classifier/homage d'Cooper.

Scores are uploaded to USPSA for people tracking divisions (check local match results - our club is NI09) and, as usually we're posting aggregate scores below. Enjoy the summer!!

Single Stack Nationals...




While Robbie Leatham didn't have to sweat the MISS crew stealing his, what is it now? like 200th SSN win, the MISS crew was well represented and had a blast!

Final '09-'10 Match and Banquet.


We're going to run two longer, 24 round, Comstock courses, replete with all the fun toys: clamshell, beartrap activator, swingers, pop-over steel, etc...

GOTCHAS? Here's the gotcha: They use the same stage layout.

To limber up, we'll run it once from the lower left moving forward before starting you facing up range in the upper right box (turn and draw). If you haven't had to move up range on a course of fire before, take it slow because the 180 rule is there to protect all the shooters and the RO's.


After the match we'll adjourn to the pub to eat pizza, drink beer and have a merry 'ole time at the Fox Hole.

May 6th, 2010 Results

Well, that classifier sucked. I really do think it is the toughest one.

As an aside, it is my favorite one - think about it it only tests your ability to draw (even slowly) and fire 6 simple shots. No movement, no reloads, etc...

I digress. Scores have been pushed to USPSA, classifier paid for, and aggregate scores below.

I'll post last match info when we figure out what we're going to do.

Why we stop in May...

I've gotten a few questions as to why we stop shooting in May. The answer is simple:

There are so many outdoor venues running USPSA around here during the summer that we just don't get enough people to make it worthwhile.

Here is a partial list - be sure to check USPSA site for additional clubs.

Saturday:
The Ripon Gun Club shoots USPSA the first and last Saturday of the month.



Sunday, SunDAY, SUNDAY!:
Pine Tree Pistol Club (Rockford) shoots on the 1st Sunday of the month.
Oak Park Sportsmen's Club(IL) and Schultz' Gun Club (WI) shoot the 2nd Sunday of the Month.
Oconomowoc (WI) shoots the 3rd Sunday of the month.
Northern Illinois Shooters Association (WI) shoots the 4th Sunday of the month. (They share Schultz' range)


Additionally, some of the clubs shoot IDPA and there are several that other clubs that shoot other mix of action pistol/3-gun... For example, check out Action Shooting Sports which shoots a great match in Britol on the first Sunday of every month.

With all that going on, aspiring shooters should find something!

May 6th Match - Courses of fire...

We'll be running the classifier 99-14, "Hoser Heaven" - it is a 12 yard, TIMED FIRE stage.

For the second stage, we're running some 18 round stage. Working on getting a diagram soon...

Thursday, April 29, 2010

New Gear, Banquet, and Season Closing...

As spring moves in on us with summer hot on its tails, it signals that our 2009-2010 season is coming to a close...

Please note that we've got 2 more matches scheduled: May 6th and May 20th.

Additionally, keep the May 20th post match evening open for the free pizza and beer that we'll consume over at the FoxHole (just up the street!)

Finally, we've got a foot activator and clamshell target on order - should show up in time for the next match!

April 29, 2010 Results

We had 17 shooters on a nice, warm spring night... Missed a few of our guys as they gear up for the SSN, but we had fun shooting our 16 person double-elimination steel shoot.

3 pepper poppers, one popper, then crossing peppers: 5 in all (for our Revo guys)

Top Shooters (after 5th place, the standing really break down...)

2010 Single Stack Nationals.

Good luck to our guys that'll be blasting away at the 2010 Single Stack Nationals!

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Steel Shoot.

Ok folks, here's how it works: Two shooter, one on the left, one on the right, line up and at the beep shoot the steel targets. The middle poppers have to be shot last, as it will indicate the winner: they cross - one on the bottom is the winner as it fell before the other target)

The course is all poppers - 5 on each side, so revolver shooters aren't totally out of the loop.

We'll pair up folks, then assign winners to one side and the vanquished to the opposite side of an elimination chart.

The better you shoot, the more you shoot...

Friday, April 16, 2010

April 29, 2010 Match.

April has 5 Thursdays, so we'll be shooting a 3rd match this month.

No classifier - we'll be doing man vs. man steel shoots.

I'll have more info as events develop...

Update on Lead Safety

There are a lot of links to lead safety articles, but most of them are pretty arcane.

Frank C - a MISS member - was nice enough to find a succinct article that can be easily understood by laypersons.

The link is on the side, titled, imaginatively, "Lead Safety".------------------>

Thanks Frank!

March 18, 2010 Match.

Who's up for a little strong/weak?

We're going to run CM 06-06 "Golden Bullet Standards", which does one string freestyle-to-strong, then another string freestyle-to-weak... Check it out here. (PDF)

Additionally, we're going to run the following 16-round mindtrick...

Lead Levels...



I went to the doctor on Wednesday to get a lead level test and they phoned me on Friday that my levels are, well, let's just say that you can't quite yet use me as a pencil, but I'm getting awful close...

To our frequent shooters, I'd urge you to get your levels checked.


To our newer shooters, I'd urge you to wash your hands and face as soon as you are finished shooting. Then limit your exposure to the range when you're waiting for your next go. Consider buying range-only shoes and range-only clothing (clothing which you wash ASAP when you get home.)

March 4th, 2010 Scores...

Ok folks, here are the scores. Again, sorry for the delay - we generally pride ourselves on getting scores posted within 24 hours, usually on the same night.

Divisional scores are posted on USPSA. Classifiers have been submitted as well.
(Looks like a 7.1 Hit Factor will result in B-class in Production while a 7.8 will be the edge of B-class in Single Stack...)

We've got some video too, but it needs to be edited and uploaded...

Thursday, February 25, 2010

We are shooting March 4th!

Will be running CM06-05, "Fluffy's Revenge" as a classifier.
We have a few additional stages planned... I'll post an update here when the details are finalized.

February 18th Results

We had 23 shooters and ran 3 stages - 2 classifiers and 1 fun stage. Sorry for folks that had to shoot the hearts in the dark - I'd like to off this message:

"We'll try harder next time. Maybe."

;)

Alrights... As always, we post combined results here for fun. Local match results by division are posted at USPSA. If you are interested in divisional results, you should check out scores by club there.

Classifiers were also uploaded tonight, but probably won't be processed for a few days.

Pine Tree's WIIT.

A few MISS members braved the crowds and shot the 2010 WIIT at Pine Tree Pistol Club!
Video of us fumbling our way through stages will come shortly!



I managed to take Hi-C in Production (6th overall), though I just missed a B-classification (due to my existing scores) with a 59.42%!! SO CLOSE!



Bob O. took Hi-C in Single Stack (7th overall). What else would you expect from the #1 C class pistolero in Single Stack? Congrats! (His performance on the WIIT's classifier will put him over the B-mark...)

HB 180 - Please, take action: Call your State Rep!

Normally, we at MISS do not post/send out off-topic email or legislative
action notices since we feel there are far too many email lists and
other venues for information. However, we make special exceptions for
issues that are particularly close to home - such as last months
Lakemoor Rally and the following issue:

Some of you may have seen the ISRA alert regarding HB 180. The full
text is available on the Illinois General Assembly site:
(http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/fulltext.asp?DocName=&SessionId=76&GA=96&DocTypeId=HB&DocNum=180&GAID=10&LegID=&SpecSess=&Session=)

This, we feel, is an issue that cuts particularly close to home: our
"home range", HP Shooting Center, is a business that would,
undoubtedly, feel the pressure that HB 180 would create. Additionally,
how many shooters would be encouraged to shoot with M.I.S.S. (or any
other clubs, such as McHenry IDPA) when their names are treated to the
Gestapo-tactic of "registering to/with the state" after a handgun
sale?

What follows is the text of the ISRA email that went out this morning - please take a few moments and call or write your State Representative.

Late last week, Daley sympathizers in the Illinois House passed HB180
out of the Rules Committee and on to the floor of the House. A vote on
HB 180 is expected as early as this coming Tuesday.

Should you be worried about HB 180? ABSOLUTELY!

HB 180 would include the following:

1. Require all Illinois gun shops to secure a license to operate
issued by the Illinois State Police. Under this bill, the State Police
may issue a license to a gun shop and would establish all rules and
regulations required to keep the license. You know what that means
either nobody would be granted a license, or those who did get
licenses would be so burdened by regulations that they could not make
a profit.
BOTTOM LINE: HB 180 would shut down all gun shops in Illinois.

2. HB 180 requires that all your gun purchases be registered with the
state police.
BOTTOM LINE: HB 180 is a licensing/registration scheme designed to
keep track of how many guns you own so they may be easily confiscated
at a later date.

3. HB 180 allows any police officer in the state go to any gun shop in
the state to conduct so-called record reviews.
BOTTOM LINE: The Chicago CAGE Unit could, and would, inspect gun shops
across the state doing these record reviews. Shop owners, no matter
where they are located, would be forced to cooperate with the CAGE
unit or lose their licenses. The true purpose of these visits is to
cost gun shops time and money and ultimately cause them to go out of
business.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

1. Starting Monday morning, call your State Representative and
politely tell him/her that you oppose HB 180 and that you would like
to see him/her vote against the bill when it comes to the House Floor.
If you do now know who your state representative is, go to the
following web site and follow the directions for looking up your
legislators: Illinois State Board of Elections. If you know who your
State Representative is, you can look up the phone numbers of their
Springfield and district offices here.

2. Pass this alert on to all your friends and family, ask them to make
calls as well.

3. Please post this alert to any and all blogs and bulletin boards to
which you may belong.

Thanks in advance for your help in this matter. The future of lawful
gun ownership in Illinois depends on you!
