Would like introduce myself.

I am a retired So. Cal. LEO. Began law enforcement carreer after a 10 year stint in USMC and Viet Vet.

Although I've carried used and qualified with a wide variety of small arms and light machine guns my entire adult life I have really never been into firearms at a private or non-professiona leval. I do enjoy shooting and have competed at several levals during my carreer, just that I always had other hobbies that took my time.

After retirement I left California for about 7 years, leaving at the end of 1999 I therfore missed out on a lot of the Calif AW ban debate.

On returning a few years ago I'm finding the fiscal and political decline in what is basically a single party mob in Saramento to be sickening, seemingly even more so then the 35 years I lived here.

The gun control issues are the prime examples.

I have only owned two personal weapons my whole life and have normally only kept enough ammo to keep my self defense handguns loaded. After reading over the joke and punch lines in the 12000 PC sections added since my retirement and this brazen power play over handgun ammuniton, that has now changed. So far I have a new AR 15 on its way and just ordered 1000 rounds of handgun ammo, with more on the way as finances dictate. Do I need them, probably not but it is shear principle.

So much for the rant. I'm very impressed with the Calguns site. I'm finding it very informative and have so far gleened very worthwhile info and insight, especially as I bring myself back up to speed in this crazy gun contol effort I'm seeing out here.
