Greetings!

Gun nut, no. Gun aficionado, yes.

I was raised in a military family, and worked a civilian position with an LE agency. Guns were as common as sliced bread (or donuts, if you must...). Back then, it did not make sense to me why on earth we would need organizations like CalGuns and NRA. It was not until I changed career environments, that I discovered how many people are anti-gun! Many of them have never seen a gun, and even fewer have handled one. Not surprising that they succumb to the anti-gun messaging. That right there needs to stop!

I don't much care for the glorification of guns though. They aren't sexy. They aren't cute. They are tools, not toys.. Tools are necessary. I love tools. Learn how to use them properly. Buy many of them. Guns always go on the NEED side of the shopping list, not the WANT side.

So, I am jumping in with both feet when it comes to defending our Second Amendment rights. Spring 2012, I am back to being a broke college student, surviving on Top Ramen. It is quite an experience, being twice as old as many of my classmates. If y'all know of any lower cost activities in RivCo, SanDiegoCo or SnBdnoCo, shoot me a message.

Hi Mariah, welcome to Calguns. If you don't already have one you might look into picking up a .22LR rifle or handgun. You could continue to practice while still catering to your thrifty "Top Ramen" self.

Yo... Welcome.

Edit: And I have to disagree with one thing... Guns can be Sexay! Just as Sexay as my Dewalt 14.4v Cordless! It's in the eye of the beholder.
