Publishing the private information about an IGOT member or anyone else on the Internet with malicious intent, is forbidden in this group, whether on or off social media. This goes in hand with respecting everyone's privacy and mutual trust.

Illinois Gun Owner's Together (IGOT) is the largest firearms related social media group in Illinois. In 2020, our membership exceeded 8,500 and our online presence has more traffic than other state and national firearms groups.
As a group, Illinois Gun Owner's Together (IGOT) hosts social events, group target shooting events, pro-2A rallies, and counter protests when anti freedom advocates are protesting to take away gun rights, and more.
Active Illinois Gun Owner's Together (IGOT) members support each other, raise funds for veteran affairs, and conduct outreach activities promoting firearm safety.
IGOT members express themselves often through humor. Our founder obtained a Hi-Point firearm wrapped in a hundred dollar bill print, which became the "official sidearm of IGOT." A hundred dollar bill wrapped hi-point is not easy to obtain in Illinois, making it rare.
During the Great Depression when everyone was depressed about gun control laws, an IGOT member bought a lot of magic beans and got very wealthy after he sold them some time later. Now the man could afford to be friends with Czs, with Sigs, with Glocks, with Kimbers, with H&Ks, with Smith & Wesson, even with the ancient 1911 which jammed a lot but people still tolerated because it won two world wars. But he still wasn't happy.
So the man created a secret club of people with similar interests (IGOT). Everyone loved to be part of the club but there were always arguments about different models, manufacturers, and calibers. Offensive memes started to spread and plenty of childish name-calling. There was nothing to unite people. Until one day the man saw a hi point c9. Not just any low quality and unreliable pistol, this one was a limited edition that was hydro-dipped into the color of money at birth.
The man was already a big fan of handguns and money. He felt sorry for the little pistol because everyone else hated it and made fun of it. The evil people who controlled Bartertown even banned the entire family of hi points because of what they were made off.
The nice man thought the current guns laws were stupid so he found a loophole and took the pistol home with him and called him Hundo. The man has made Hundo the official group mascot and the people saw that it was pure and have accepted it as a fine firearm. There are other Hundos somewhere around the country but they are really hard to find and even harder to legally purchase. It is said that eternal glory, immortality, and superhuman powers are awarded to those lucky enough to own a Hundo.
At least twice a year, IGOT hosts a large outdoor shooting event. Smaller get togethers at various ranges occur all throughout the year.
Every February, IGOT gets together for a holiday party. Friendship, food, and drinks are plentiful, as well as raffle prizes.
IGOT held its first family picnic/bbq. Members have also hosted events in their own homes.
Where else will you have an opportunity to shoot an actual Civil War era cannon?
