Hello,
New to Calguns. Not entirely new to firearms. Been in CA for >10 yrs and have not had a gun here.

Recently gone through the hoops for a handgun. Picked up a 1911 with a 22 slide for my son to get some experience along with a gun safe. This re-opened up a flood of pent up demand for some specific pieces. Handguns (1911, 9mm auto, "tactical" 22LR) Hunting (Shotguns, Break Action Rifles), Lightweight Carbines (Kel-Tec, Baretta, Highpoint,etc.), Military (Mosin, Mauser, etc.), of course an AR to play dress up with, assemble and disassemble, and enjoy as a good shooter.

I do some hunting, Upland Birds. Want to get into deer, duck and boar and have access to these opportunities. Turkey is interesting, but see so many as pests on my ranch and have no problem taking them with my magnum air rifle, that the "hunt" is not there.

Teaching my 12 yr. son to shoot has been fun. Putting the 1911 in his hands as a 22 has been fun for us both. Will get him onto a bolt action 22 rifle and looking for a bantam shotgun. We've been to Bullseye and will try to get to Circle-S.

Enjoying the fact that we can find some nice high quality guns in full caliber and 22LR for practice.

Cheers,
Vincent

Welcome Vicent (and son)!

This is a Family friendly place. And exposing our youth to the joy of shooting is greatly supported here, and a big part of CG's.

Start out by checking in here (but there is much participation here by folks with kids on Calguns):

Vincent,

Welcome to Calguns! Glad to see you’re passing down your hobby. Seems like some of the best times I spend with my father is while we are eating or shooting/reloading. :D

HEY HEY! In between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa here! Seems more and more Sonoma county folks are here. Keep shooting with your son. I'm a big "kid" and shoot all the time with my Dad.
Cool "handle" BTW. Henery Fonda in the film Grapes of Wrath....is one of the best roles of all time
