Hello Board, Being new to this cool site, I thought I would introduce myself before I start posting.
My name is Mike, I live in Northridge, born and raised in the San Fernando Valley and Im 45 yeras old.
My love of firearms started when I was 8 when my dad started me plinkin with his Ruger 22 single six and thats my prized piece in my collection now. My main interest is M1 Garands and M1 Carbines but also love my Mini 14 GB and my Bushmaster.
Im sick of seeing our shooting areas closed here in Ca. and I really miss the Great Western Gun Show (Zev sucks)
I have been browsing the forum for a few weeks now, and first of all I would like to congratulate you all for presenting such a informative and nice forum. I have really learned a lot here in those few weeks. I want to thank the owner of the site, and also all its contrubuting members.
Mike

Greetings and salutations.

You're lucky to be in Southern California. At least you have BLM land to go to and the Costa Mesa and Del Mar shows to go to. Up here it's a long haul to any non-regulated open space where shooting is allowed or a "decent" (for California) gun show to attened.

Aside from the necroposting, I also agree. Sometimes the NOOB's get labeled as Trolls without so much as a welcome for asking questions they don't know the answer to.:(

Im glad you guys caught onto that, it was the whole idea! As for the necro-posting, I wanted to go back as far as I could to find one that would make an impact, this was the one I chose.

Hey Mike, welcome.

Word of caution - this site is heavily indexed by Google, so be careful giving out details where you might live (exactly) in public posts. Many of us on Calguns have met each other so it's not us you're worrying about, but you don't want some nefarious Google searcher finding your address and knowing you have a whole bunch of guns to steal in your house. :(

Actually, a few guys got it. This is a old member, who hasnt posted in a long time. But look at his opening statement. we havent had one of those in a long time. It seems to me all we've had lately from new members is . . . . .

"how does three rd burst work, and can i put it in my OLL?"

"how do I buy hi-cap mags if I didnt have them before 2000?"

"can I guy a gun in reno in the parking lot and bring it back to cali,?"

Our standards seemed to have dropped lately folks, hopefully its not a trend.

The answer to that is: Only if you are Iggy, and only if you bring it back in a paper grocery bag"

So Start a official....Introduce yourself thread. It doesn't have to be for new people. And share what you feel like and keep it reply free....just like all the bios on a few pages.

Some of the welcome posts to this necroposted thread read quite odd when read with the join dates of the OP and the ones welcoming him. It's like something from the Twilight Zone. A hole in the space-time continuum or something:shrug:
