    Hello from the Peoples Republic of Chicago

    Hello from the North Side of Chicago. We finally (the last State in the Union) have concealed carry here, and I'm just tickled pink. Just as a FYI, I'm a Sig guy myself, but I also lean to S&W and Ruger.

    Hey bro, welcome to the forum. Good to have you here. My last visit to Chitown was in 74 and I was on the north side. I was there during Highwood days and in Highland Hts. (I believe that's right) I don't know if it's still there but I spent some time drinking in the Wooden Nickle bar...

    Welcome, I'm from the North Side of Chicago around Belmont and Sheffield, man that area has changed a lot since '93 when I moved to Phoenix. Best I could do was an FOI card. Great city though! Hey Gunner...'74 that's a long time ago...I think it's Highland "PARK" but I'm sure you got the name of the bar right....very funny

    Thats right bro Highland park... my bad. The festival was like a small carnival and a real good time. Was a 4 day week end from Ft. Chaffee in Arkansas and one bud was from there so we took off last minute no plans. It was a great time...
