    What's the background with Springfield armory and the IL dealer licensing scheme?

    my wife has a Kimber 9mm carry pistol; it's a nice little gun, works flawlessly. It's a 1911, so you would have to carry it cocked and locked, were you to ever get a LTC. In comparison to my XD40 subcompact, it looks much smaller, but dimensionally they're within 1/8" in all directions.

    The state of CA has gone through quite a lot of effort, due to their desire to avoid that particular entanglement. To the point of opening up the assault weapon registry again (which they despise doing, I assure you)
    I'm not rich enough to pay for that lawsuit. And I can't afford a felony conviction. They'll threaten my wife, too, in order to get me. I have too much to lose to be a political prisoner. It's unbelievable how gun owners are being treated as villains by these legislators. I'm a good person and I don't wish to harm anyone.

    Springfield says they have since severed their ties with IFMA so I'm not really jumping on the boycott bandwagon yet. I tend to not want to punish manufacturers of decent products just because of something like this.

    Do you remember what you guys paid for the Kimber?

    I'd try one of those. I'm also thinking about the striker fired Ruger LC9.

    I doubt the Bauer Act will pass. Politicians want to get re-elected and there's a primary at the end of this month.

    The bill is so ridiculous, it would make it illegal to put a metal plate in your child's backpack. Democrats are dumb, but they aren't that dumb.

    The dealer licensing act passed. Rauner hasn't signed it yet. The fact that he hasn't vetoed it yet tells me that he plans to sign the act after the primary. That law will put every dealer out of business except for the most well-established guys, who are very few, and the big box stores. Basically, I'll have to drive to WI to go to a range.

    Sounds like the writing is on the wall.

    Rauner is vetoing the dealer licensing bill. We'll see what happens with the rest.

    I can get 10 round mags for my rifles, including the MP15-22, and the XDM9. It seems stupid to have a double stack handgun that can only carry 10 rounds, though. I'd rather have a single stack mag, like a 9mm 1911 or a 9mm Shield. I like the grips on the M&Ps a lot and Jen seems to be able to work the slide on the 9mm compact. I'm not sure about the Shield until we try. I might want to look at a 9mm XDS or the new hammer fired XDE. I don't know anything about the reliability of the XDE yet, though. I'm not sure if the double stack guns will still be legal for long in IL.

    I'm glad you survived; that could have been a terrible weekend. Too bad about all the fishing equipment, and all your magazines and assault weapons. Perhaps that little boat was overloaded?

    From all the stories I've heard over the past few years, a small lake near herre has a steel-lined bottom. I've never understood why so many guys load their boats full of guns to ferry them to the other side when there's a perfectly good road around the lake. Go figure.
