Greetings. I’ll be moving to FL at the end of July. I’m leaving the Chicago burbs after a miserable 43 years. And before anyone asks, no I’m not bringing Chicago/Illinois politics with me. It’s the main reason I’m leaving. Oh yeah, the winters too. Also I see a few familiar names from other forums I participate in.

Welcome to Florida! I know a few folks who moved here from IL and were in no way, shape, or form the sort of folks we think of when we think of Chicago and all its problems. All of them were from further south in more rural parts of the state. Worth saying, they love it here. Like me, they still have a show shovel hanging up in the garage that’s never been used since they got here. :p

Thanks for the welcomes. Initially we’re moving to Oviedo with plans on building a house in Palm Coast. Needless to say I’ll be looking for range suggestions soon. No I’m not bringing my snowblower or shovels.

Welcome from Tampa Bay, from a 10yr resident of the Chicago area. I attended college out there and lived in both the Roger's Park section of Chicago itself (right near the Loyola EL stop), and then in the Village of Schaumburg for 3years before returning to the PRNJ for almost 30, and finally moving down here to freedom in FL..

Where in the Chicago burbs?

I’ve been in Downers Grove for the last 15years. DuPage county for 38.

I recognize your username. From where I don’t know though?
Anyway welcome. Glad you’re escaping Chirac.
You recognize me from Addicts. That’s where I’m most active. I recognized you while browsing before I joined.

Welcome to FCC from Palm Beach County, Notshawn54! 🍻

Congratulations on escaping back to America.

If you're a veteran, take a look at our Military Service Thread where you'll find many of us there, too!

In case you weren't aware, you can stay current on pertinent Florida Statutes regarding use of force and firearms law by going right to the source using these links for Chapter 776 - Justifiable Use of Force and Chapter 790 - Weapons and Firearms. I'd also like to suggest you obtain your own copy of FLORIDA FIREARMS Law, Use & Ownership by Jon Gutmacher!

Also, I highly recommend you read this thread to understand how to navigate FCC to get the most out of your experience. One particular item that's caught many veteran FCC members off guard is the "Recommended Reading" at the bottom of each page, which MAY contain quite old threads of inactive conversations lacking up-to-date information or context. So beware of the date of the last post (just to the right of the post number) in any thread you come across so you don't mistakenly think every post is recent and start responding to very old posts/threads that been dormant for quite some time, sometimes for many years.

Again, welcome to FCC and good luck! :cool:
