Greetings Calgunners,

Wanted to introduce myself to you all. I'm a +40 So-Cal resident all of my life. I recently moved back to the home I grew up in after the passing of my father. Coming back here has reignited my love of things I did in my younger years. Shooting, Fishing, working on stuff in the garage. My wife thinks I'm nuts but to me these are much more wholesome activities than spending my free time drinking and looking for a good time.

I recently purchased a Smith and Wesson M&P .40 Compact (Which I am still waiting on) and am looking for a AR platform rifle. (served in the ARMY in the early 80's and was fairly proficient with the A1) While researching my purchases I found that while I had been living my life ignorant to the changes in the California gun laws our basic rights were being stripped away. Silly laws that make no sense to any sensible person have been forced down our throats and it appears more are on the way at a state and federal level. (I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir at this point)

To make a long story short, I look foreword to the information and events provided here. I look foreword to finding like-minded (and mabe some not so like-minded) people to discuss firearms, legale issues, and related subject matter.

That's all for now, thanks for taking the time to read this.

Welcome to Calguns. Consider picking up a .22 rifle for your wife so that she can join you at the range.

Thanks Yugo sounds great . Went to "Target Range" in Van Nuys yesterday with my old .380 junker. Was suprised how well I did considering I hadn't fired it in 10+ years and it's a POS. PM me sometimes. I'm in the West Valley and still exploring local ranges so any suggestions are always welcome.

Rat...Welcome! I'm in Reseda and have a brand new Glock and AR that I just got and need to break in, so if you ever want to hit up the range, let me know. Firing Line is a couple miles from the house.
