If you're looking to shoot outdoors, there aren't any public ranges within 80 miles of the city. There's a private range in Sycamore that non-members can pay a daily fee of $10 to use. It's out in Dekalb county. I'm not even sure if it's open in the winter and it has limited hours even in the summer. 1 or 2 days during the week and Saturday and Sunday.

I can say that since 1980 new handguns have been banned which means there aren't any illegal handguns in Chicago! :)

Pity me--I live in the City (all my guns are stored legally outside the city limits). As to ranges--there is an indoor 25 yard range near O'Hare (Bensenville) that someone already mentioned--Gun World. There are some indoor ranges elsewhere--Bass Pro Shops in Gurnee, Midwest Guns, etc. I understand from C-Rock that Bass Pro will allow rifles. Gun World does also, but I am not sure about how they will deal with an out of state ID--in IL you need the FOID card, but as an out of state resident, you may be able to shoot with a TX ID. How long will you be in the area? I may be able to make some arrangements to meet you to shoot depending on work and school schedules. E-mail if you wish. AFARR

If you are looking for a place to shoot, you can come over into Indiana and there are 2 ranges that you can shoot your rifles at within 2 hours of downtown Chicago. It will be cold though. I went this morning and it was 10 degrees on the firing line. There is also one indoor range here in town for handguns only, or handgun ammo only.

No guns are allowed in Chicago. Allowing law abiding people to have guns in Chicago might harm Chicago's chances For another year as #1. Murders that is... Chicago is the National Murder Capitol of the United States! [xx(]

brouhaha, Thanks for posting this question, and those who answered. Work was going to move me to Chicago, but Jesus H. Kerist. BeAvEr CoUnTy, PA, has been great, shooting-wise. RKBA people, ranges, CCW, Class 3. But our metro center is Pittsburgh, and former girlfriend, today in Chicago, told me that I wouldn't find my wife here (been here a decade). Not looking for a wife, just the right girl. But the gun thing, is to ask this daily red meat eater, to go vegetarian. The thought alone could kill me.
