Aren't the gun laws in Illinois really restrictive? It seems like most of the things I read about Chicago are that it is one of the least gun friendly places in the US. Not sure if it's true I heard they were trying to make it illegal to walk into your garage with a handgun. Anyways I plan on pitching that Judge to my friend hard just so I can shoot it from time to time at the range. And look closely at the CZ-75 if you like Hi-Powers. Cheaper but almost as good as the Hi-Power if not as good. It gives you the same cocked and locked carry capability also. Not to many things funner than shooting guns!
