Hi Everyone,

I recently joined your forum to research my 2nd amendment rights and hopefully take advantage of them before they could be taken away.

The guns I've been mostly interested are those built on the 1911 platform. I plan to use it for impulsive jaunts to the local range and for home defense.

I live in the Inland Empire and will be researching these pistols here and asking questions about private party transfers and where to buy makes like Rock Island Armory and the like, for budget minded individuals.

I have a quick question. When looking for a used pistol, is it odd to want to test fire it at a range before purchase? Would this be considered rude?

I think it depends on the gun. If you're just shopping around and looking for whats right for you, I'd go rent a few first and get an idea of what you want. Don't go wasting peoples time and bring them to a range, shoot their gun and decide it's not for you. But it's not uncommon to have a specific gun in mind, find someone selling that gun, and trying before you buy.

Look into an OLL AR build also , the bit's 7 pieces needed are more redily available and costs have come down a bit.

I wouldn't ask to test fire anything unless I was committed to purchasing it. Thank you for the advice!

If you don't mind me asking, what is an OLL AR build?

Off List Lower. Multiple AR15's are banned by name alone in California. You can build a California compliant AR15 by using a lower that is not on that list.

I haven't begun to research AR15s as of yet. The 1911 will be my first purchased firearm.

But, when I do start down that path, I will definitely keep that advice in mind.

What is the low to average cost of an AR15?

The only rifle I have researched is the M1A as I could inherit one someday, although it is questionable due to the assault weapons criteria.

Depending on the rifle it could be anywhere from $700 on up. The M1a should be able to be modified fairly easily so its not an AW.
