Sweet merciful, another forum for me to add to the rounds?

Brandon knows me, but many here don't. My name is Jason, and I prefer to be called just that.

I am currently employed as a server at Outback Steakhouse on Howe (If you come in and ask for me I'll buy dessert) while attending CSUS. Aside from long walks on the beach, I occupy myself by building guitars, teaching guitar/music theory lessons, practicing martial arts and wine tasting. I recently bought a house as an investment redirection and spend ALOT of time fixing it. I speak 2 languages, play 9 instruments, and enjoy coffee to an unhealthy extent. I coordinated the most recent Calguns booth at CalExpo and met many members. I also volunteered at 2 previous Cow Palace shows.

I love meeting local Calgunners. If you want to go to the range, hang out, go bar hopping, or just kill time, PM me.

Hi, my name is Vasiliy an I am an addict.
I leave and work in Antelope, Sacramento county. In my spare time (which is not much) I build and shoot guns. I own all the tooling to build an AK from a flat or a receiver. I own AK rifles in .22LR, 5.45x39, 7.62x39, and .308 (Vepr, and you may guess that this is my favorite). Got several ARs in different configurations as well. Some of my rifles are RAWs, but many are OLLs. I work in Building maintenance field, am proud father of 3 boys (2 have engineering degrees from UC Davis, the youngest is still in school) and my late child, beautiful Princess, love of my life, 7 y/o daughter.

Great to have you on board! I would personally love to see a retired LEO join our ranks. Would you be on board for volunteering time at a Gun Show Booth? You would have a much easier time establishing credibility than most of us. Please stay active here so you can help us inform people.

Im off to the suggestions forum to throw around a couple ideas. Hidey hoe!

As far as what I can contribute, I do graphic design work and if you have kids that are intelligent but don't have the grades to back it up, I can probably help.

Right now I'm going thru the ICE SA app process and trying to find a career out in the Bay Area, so if anybody has a line on a big boy job send me a PM. I'm into politics, and guns of course, especially the technical/"how can I build/take apart/modify" side of the sport. I play guitar-- blues, rock, and metal, new and old.. Oh, and in my ripe old age of 29 I have taken up the hobby of metal detecting and coin collecting, so if anybody knows of any good spots to MD-- public land, your ranch or yard, or trespassing, doesn't matter to me-- let me know. It's the archaeological aspect of it-- it's like digging to China as a kid-- not about financial gain. Jason, PM is on the way about guitar stuff.

I'm currently a court appointed investigator reviewing conservatorship cases and petitions.

I run a blog at http://thepackingrat.net. The motto of the blog is "Guns, Gear and Grub." It's a personal blog that addresses my experience with firearms, outdoor gear/trips and the occasional food. It has a moderate level of exposure - I'm listed as #40 at hits unlimited. I did make it up to #22 during SHOT Show. It didn't last long, however. :)
http://www.hitsunlimited.com/fish/100topguns/100top.html

I'm NRA certified to teach pistol and rifle classes. In 2009, I introduced 10 new shooters to the range - folks who have never touched a gun before meeting me.

I anticipate participating more frequently locally. I attended my first event at the Elk Grove Friends of NRA Gun-O-Rama and reported on my experience at that event.

Spend days pushing paper in a cubicle with the left half of my brain while the right side plans out the days off:

Options:
1.) Go shooting
2.) Looong hike with the 2 Black Labs
3.) Mountain bike/kayak
4.) Build/fix someone's damn computer
5.) ...go shooting.

Certainly willing to put in a little time for CGN considering all the education & info I have gained from the knowledgeable people here.

Cordova Shooting Center put me on to your site. Looking for M1 Garand officionados for tips and tricks, do's and don'ts and reloading. I really would like to get into some entry level competition shooting. From what research I have done it seems reloading for the M1 can be touchy for over loading but still reach out to 300 yds accurately. I understand the rifle should reach out to 1000 yds but I don't think I am up to that yet.

I'm a member of Folsom Shooting Club (Sacramento Valley Shooting Center) and try to make it out at least once a month. Been plinking since I was a kid, recently took up tactical courses after an old ROTC friend got me interested and told me where I should get my first AR-15. My main interest now is precision rifle. I started handloading a couple of summers ago and have been pursuing a perfect cartridge formula ever since.

My first post and intro:

I live in the Pocket Area on the river (formerly lived in Folsom, Rocklin and Orangevale over the past 15 years). I grew up with guns and starting shooting at five years old. Fired my first 12ga at seven, and my first 30.06 at nine. Later I went in the Army and got to fire all kinds of cool things.

Then I just got out of shooting altogether.

I went plinking for the first time in over a decade down in AZ a few months ago and forgot how much I enjoyed it. I've been hitting up the Gun Store in EG lately for range time, and also heading up to the Red Bluff area on BLM land. I've really been enjoying myself again and plan on making more purchases soon. Which is how I ended up here.

You guys have a great forum. I've been lurking for a few months. It's nice to have CA specific questions and issues dealt with directly since so many of them are unique to our otherwise beautiful state.

I look forward to learning more and hopefully contributing. :thumbsup:

Hello all, my name is Jeff, aka kumanj. I'm new to Cal Guns. Learned about the site from one of the sales guys at the Gun Room in Elk Grove. I was there using the range yesterday and asked about selling one of my guns. I have recently acquired 3 handguns.

1.) Beretta 92D 9mm (Handed down from my father)

2.) Ruger GP100 .357 mag, 4" barrel, Stainless Steel with Pacmyer Grips (purchased from a friend) THIS ONE IS FOR SALE!!!!

3.) Virginian Dragoon .44 mag, Stainless Steel (Also Handed down from my dad) Looking for a new grips for this one, Pacmyer of Hogue

Now that I have handguns in my house my wife is a bit freaked out as she has never been exposed to guns. We are scheduled to take the handgun safety course at Rancho Cordova Shooting Center next month and hopefully this will alleviate some of her stress.

I am looking to sell my Ruger GP100 .357mag for about $450.00 so I can buy myself a Beretta 92FS 9mm Inox. I really want a new one but will definately consider a used one in good condition.

Using this site to get info, hopefully sell the Ruger, Find myself a Beretta 92FS and assorted items, ammo, etc.

I've been lurking around here for quite a while, live within hearing distance of the Lake Natoma gate horns, and like to explore my local area for hidden treasures of all types. I'm a native son, born and raised in the Central Valley and enjoy all of the natural features our lovely, politically misguided state has on offer.

If you have any questions about the mechanics of early firearms, I have a bit of experience in building matchlock and flintlock mechanisms. I like to build things from scratch, up to and including making my own iron from ore and dabble in lots of early technologies. If we have to start over, I can get us to the mid 17th century, with a little help from my friends. :chris:

I look forward to meeting, and in some cases re-meeting, local firearm enthusiasts!

It seems to me that (granted, this was years ago) there was some BLM land up by Nyack off of 80 that was approved for shooting as long as it wasn't too dry, you use paper targets and clean up your range and had a good backstop. Anyone aware of a good way to find information on if this is still permissible?

I think it was up the logging roads at the Emigrant Gap Road exit. This would be significantly closer.

Other than shooting and fishing, I enjoy working on my diesel pickup, cars, motorcycles, mountain biking, hiking, video gaming and RC cars/helos.

Ruger MkII or MkIII is excellent. Walther P22 is great if you want a tactical-looking one. I've got both, but I prefer the Walther because the mag release is easier (the Ruger drops mags like a P-38 or a Luger), and the grip is closer to 90 degrees, as opposed to the swept grip of the Ruger. I always find myself pointing the Ruger too high on initial draw-down, but the Walther feels like my USP or M1911A1.

No problem. If you haven't bought one by late June, you're welcome to shoot mine. I'll be out of the country for the next month, though. The thing that sucks about the P22 is that you have to get a P22CA - which means no barrel changing because, oh heaven forbid, they make a threaded barrel for it. I liked the idea of changing from a 3" to a 5" and back, but I just went with the 5" since I can't change them.

This will be my first post as a calguns member. I am new to the area, moved here from SLC in Feb and am realizing how I took my former states gun laws for granted. I am happy to be here but am appalled at the attitude toward the 2nd in the politico.

hey im in north highlands, orginally from tennessee and im kinda in shock at the crazy gun laws there is here, i just want to let you all know that i support the nra, and calguns efforts in getting these laws reversed.

no matter how many laws they put in place the criminals will always get guns, the lawmakers dont understand that, they are taking the guns away from law abiding responsible citizens not the criminals.

what are we suppose to do as law abiding citizens? let the criminals carry the "evil" weapons while we get cut down? the lawmakers make no sense at all.

Want to do some IDPA matches. Also want to meet up with some CalGunners who like to do hikes on National Forests / BLM land who won't be weirded out that I'm holstered.

Actually, I'm planning a Mt. Ralston hike soon....!
