Hi! I'm a newbie here, just joined in. I'm going to buy a gun, but haven't decided which one yet. I've found this forum, and it seems to be really interesting. So, I hope for a good conversation. Cheers!

Back at yah from Los Vegas. I was originally from Chicago's north side (Rogers Park) left in 1970 for California. Moved to Vegas 16 years ago.
You say you want to buy a gun but haven't decided yet on which. I was under the impression Chicago laws would not allow it. Tell us about what your looking at, and the hoops you need to go through to get one. I know you need a FOID card. How long of a weight do you have to pick it up and take it home?

Been thru Chicago many times, hated to stop and put my gun in a lock box when entering Illinois. I guess you no longer have to do that unless you are going to get out and go into somewhere.

Enjoy that freedom and that right. Do not go for the cheap firearm, get a good one, that will work when you need it.
Heck, living in Chicago, you might find one laying on the battlefield..(street) always seems like a war zone, feel sorry for those that live there.

Hello,

What is the intended purpose of your purchase? Carry, targets, home defense? There are a lot to choose from.

When I joined Sigforum I was living in Chicago as well. Had to move out of Cook county so I could purchase a handgun without any grief. Don't even get me started on the FOID card.
