Hello, Just wanted to say hi and looking forward to moving to your great state. To say Illinois has some hard core gun laws is an understatement. Ive been shooting all my life with my dad and with my 11 year old son for the last 4 years and he loves every min of it. My wife has family in TX and im a born and raised Chicago boy. Well we decided winter was enough and were moving to TX. Once I started looking at the gun laws I was excited to say the least. Ive never hurt anyone in my life. Ive been a firefighter/Emt for 17 years. Even though we are a good family I can not defend them properly if we were to get car jacked or held up. Im old school and live by the rules you never mess with another mans family,house or dog my pitbull Ripley. I also am unable to enjoy the shooting range with my son fully again do to our laws. To think how different and proper it is in TX brings a tear to my eye. Thanks for letting me rant a little and GOD BLESS TEXAS. If its really this good I will never leave the state. You wouldnt believe how good you have it!!!:patriot:

In a dumpy house on an expensive lot
It didn't take me long to figure out that living in Illinios sucked. As soon as I was able I moved to TEXAS. Even living in Houston far exceeds living outside of Shitcago where I grew up. Last May after putting my dad to rest one of my great nieces asked when I would be back? I told her there are only two funerals left for me to attend that would bring me back home.
