Hello!

I made the mistake of posting a thread on the gunbroker forum regarding the trend of a lot of out-of-state dealers refusing to sell to Californian's based on our states politics. My plea outlined the fact that we (gun owners) are not to blame and that selling to us would be the best way to support the 2A. After being attacked by about 10 of the states in our union the moderator of the forum locked my thread. Guess the 1st is also under attack... I was just a little bummed out who the attackers were though. Anyway albeit sarcastic, one of the posters mentioned this site. Figured here I would be among friends, so I decided to join.

Greg, from San Diego

Greg, welcome to Calguns! We do a lot of complaining about anti-CA retailers here, so feel free to chime in. Unlike Gunbroker, CGN actually has some influence in California when it comes to local retailers, so I hope you enjoy your stay and whatever unintended benefits come from being a Calgunner. :thumbsup:

Also check out the San Diego roll call thread (see my sig) and sign in to get connected with other SD CGNers in your area.

Unfortunately, GB is populated by alot of idiots, and those that take direction from said idiots. People are free to do what they want with their property, but it gets old when PRIVATE sellers wont ship LEGAL items here, even parts. Those people are ignorant and seldom can be educated, but I keep trying, and sometimes even win a convert. The HK 41 in my avitar was purchased from a dealer who said no sale to Cali. At least he was willing to discuss it over the phone, and agree to ship. The folks on the message boards, dont waste your keystrokes...

WELCOME!!!

I don't plan on ever visiting that forum again. In their minds we're just walking around bumping into each other not voting, or voting for left-wingers. I tried to point out that Cal gun owners are a pretty active bunch and we're on the front lines in the defense of the second amendment. The personal attacks just kept coming. Dummy me, I thought that the second amendment was a common bond... Guess I was wrong.

There are a lot of us here. Welcome. I recently joined also. There is a lot of info here that you will find helpful. A few people talk about leaving the area because Kali is so restrictive, but I say let's stay and change the laws!
