Hello from a fellow Chicagoan! Welcome!

Hello neighbor! We should link up and go shooting! I'm on the north side :)
Sweet, nearby on near west side (Humboldt/Wicker Park/Bucktown). Would love to go out to the range!

Nice! I used to live in Humboldt! What range do you usually go to?
Usually drive out to Range at 355 but like Maxon and Article II also. How about you?

Oh yeah plenty of times, it's heavy stuff but delicious. I can assure you it's definitely a pizza :P and much better than that thin style stuff found on the east coast
You have to eat it with a knife&fork--that ain't pizza, delish as it is! And the Chicago thin pizza... :thumbsdown:

Comparing that wonderful Chicago Tomato Pie to proper neopolitan pizza, is like comparing fabulous Peking Duck, to perfect, tangy North Carolina Barbecue.
It just makes no sense.
:roflmao: I'll tell you what, next time you are in Chicago let me know I'll treat you to the best pizza in the city and we'll see if it changes your mind! No deep dish
Good luck with that! BTW, I LOVE Chicago. When I met my wife, she was living there and I just had a blast going to see her! (Ironically, she's not fond of it). I took my son there on his Junior Year Spring Break College tour to visit U-Chicago and Northwestern. We drove down Lakeshore Dr on a sunny morning and the city was golden and HE fell in love with it--ended up going to NU and wants to move back there...from Irvine, CA! And I have eaten in more great restaurants in Chi-town and Evanston!

But regular, Neopolitan pizza? It's gonna take something special to convince me, Ahmed! (when I had Uno's it just plain SUCKED!)
I always say that chicago in the spring and summer is the best city in the country! Uno's has nothing on my little slice of Italy called Spacca Napoli. The closest thing to Napolitano pizza outside of Italy. It's absolutely amazing

See, the way I figure it, I can't lose: If I go to Spacca Napoli and the pizza's not spectacular, I win 'cuz I'm right. But if it IS spectacular, I still win 'cuz I get to eat and enjoy it! :tongue:

Article II is no frills, older gun range. It's an dingy/less organized version of Maxon. Range at 355 is my favorite

Hi Max!

Thank you for the welcome! I'll be in your neck of the woods in a month. If you have any recommendations for Vegas let me know! Not really a gambler but I love live shows, good food, museums and sports

Greetings from Chicago.

A couple neighborly suggestions ... Aside from staying alert on the street, be especially careful at area gun ranges. And be sure to comply with Cook County's "large capacity magazine" (10 rounds max.) prohibition.

Welcome from another northsider (Belmont/California).
If you haven’t already please join our local FB group. That seems to be where most of the action is happening these days. My office is right around the corner from Shure so I pop in there from time to time. Hit me up if you ever want to go shooting.
