The Range At 355 -Bolingbrook, IL Coming soon to Chicagoland!

Today I was out in Bolingbrook, IL and met with Pete (the managine partner) at the site for The Range at 355. I have to say not only that I am very excited to see this range opening in our area, but I am excited to see the owners/partners vision is from a shooters prospective. Meaning, I can see many of the future plans for the range coming from someone who enjoys shooting & shooting sports. I look forward to following the construction & opening of the range.

Fake Gun Store Selling Lies or Just Opinions…?

I’m not sure if you have seen the recent story about “Guns With History”.  Using the initials GWH our anti-gun friends started a gun store that used advertising to lure first time potential gun owner in.  Once inside the potential customers were recorded as the fake salesmen showed them some firearms, then told the “history” of each of them.  Of course each story was a tragic one, how the gun had killed someone or multiple people.  Funny how they choose not to use any stories where a citizen survived a life threatening attack by using a firearm.  This does actually happen contrary to their belief that firearms kill people.  Firearms are merely a tool, the only time a firearm is dangerous is when it fails to operate properly.  Example the firearm doesn’t shoot when the trigger is pulled, or blows apart when the trigger is pulled.  Otherwise the danger ultimately depends on the person in control of the firearm and their intent (to harm or protect).

#ImUnloading Pro Gun Style! (#ImReloading)

Ok, so many of you by now have probably seen the Snoop Dogg PSA or (whatever you call it) #Imunloading.  First, who in their right mind would take financial advice from a rap artist?  That would make as much sense as having your car repaired by a professional chef.  To those who support the right to own firearms, I say let’s take over this “campaign”.  Add the “hash” tag #ImUnloading to your firearm pics and shooting videos.  And while your at it add the hash tag #ImReloading.  Just some food for thought…


Welcome to the new BigGunner81 website…

Hey Guys BigGunner81 Here,

First I would like to say thank you for stopping by this site today.  As you may know by now I’m not much of a web expert, I’ve been working on launching this site / blog for a little while now in my spare time.  (Which is almost non existent LoL.)  Anyway my goal is to use this site as another platform to share my thoughts on firearms, shooting sports, gear ect.  Many of my ideas are still in development, so stay tuned….
