Hi everyone, my name is Mark. I live in San Diego but work in Lake Forest. I am a QA engineer for a large technology company. I am 28, and have been shooting since I was 10. My Uncle was / is an avid sport shooter and collector and he took me to the Brea Gun Club for my first time. I don't think its there any more but we didn't fire the first gun until after lunch due to the safety lessons!

I went to the Crossroads gun show in SD a few weekends ago and have since bought 2 Territorial lowers and plan on building them up in the next few months. I am not new to shooting but I am new to the whole AR thing and the advice of the guys at riflegear has been solid so far. I bought one of my lowers from them and the other from Discount Gun Mart in SD. Great service at both locations.

I also have a Glock model 23 with a streamlight on it and a "Tactical Closet Queen" Remington 870 with the cliche goodies on it, surefire fore-grip light, pistol grip and collapsible stock. I do take it out to the range however not as often as my Glock due to the amount of time it takes to clean the damn thing :)

I have gathered a huge amount of information from this site so far and I look forward to learning more both about the guns and the law but also about accessories and add-ons for the ARs. Hopefully I can make a few of the meets with the local guys in SD, my dad and I are always looking for a place to go shooting (he just bought a lower this past weekend also).

Talk to you guys soon!

Thanks fellas! Are there any ranges in South OC? Irvine, RSM, Foothill Ranch, Lake Forest area? I am working through the site looking for stuff but haven't come across anything yet.

on target off of Avery and 5. handguns and rifles. if you shoot a rifle, you have to take a class and get a rifle permit. its easy and takes about an hour or so.

BTW, OC Armory is in Laguna Hills on the other side of the 5 FWY from Lake Forest. I would highly recommend visiting those guys. http://www.ocarmory.com/
