View Full Version : Hello from The city of Daly :)

06-18-2012, 2:57 PM
First of all I would like to thank you guys :) . I've been visiting this forum for weeks now, Better understanding for Firearms, and I got to say, I've learned a lot..

My name is Pawl, from Daly city. I never owned a gun before but my Dad loves his toys, Unfortunately he's not hear to train/teach me the basics.. anyway, Its been sometime now and I am wanting to purchase my first Handgun. I'm 25 with no training/class YET whatsoever. As of now i'm still trying to learn the CA rules of owning a gun since I just got here 3 years ago from the Philippines..

I haven't decided which Handgun to get yet, but im leaning towards PPK/S.

I'm looking for a Gun-store that offers classes in the bay-area - close to Daly city would be nice :) any suggestions or recommendations?

you can go to jackson arms and they have beginner classes. you can also get your HSC at city arms in pacifica and i think tabor's shooting supply in san bruno but i'm not sure so call them. There's golden gate guns which is like a couple blocks away from tabor's in san bruno.

your best bet is go to jackson arms

Hi Pawl, welcome to Calguns. You might also consider looking into a Sig Sauer P230 or P232 or the Bersa Thunder .380.

Used to date a lovely girl from Daly City, welcome to the forums Pawl. In regards to the question of classes, I'm not sure if Tabor's in San Bruno offers classes but I'm willing to bet that the Owner Frank would know of a source.

Give him a call:

471 El Camino Real
San Bruno, CA 94066
(650) 589-0505

I Did some more research on the gun that I want.. the Walther PPK

And its not listed on the roster.. I don't know if the list is updated but if it is, then my plan backfired. :(

Have you tried looking at a CZ 75? city arms in pacifica has some (like 5?), tabor's has 2 (cz 97 and cz75b), and golden gate guns has 2 also (i believe the cz RAMI and cz 97B).

they are very very comfortable guns and shoot fantastic

06-21-2012, 4:52 PM
thank you for the suggestion Mr. Gillious I will look into it.

I'm looking at Sig Sauer P232 as SoCal Bob suggested. I like the P230 but again, its not in the roster. The p232 is nice, now I just need to feel it :)

But I still like the PPKS :)

Go check out Jackson Arms and rent some guns. Figure out which feels best in your hands and get that one. I have an XDm (off roster SSE), but I do like the CZ75 as well. Good luck!

I haven't decided which Handgun to get yet, but im leaning towards PPK/S.

Have you checked out the Rock Island Armory 1911 series? They're made in Marikina, Philippines.

I used to live in Colma. My neighbors were very quite. :)

Hello and welcome!

Again. thanks for the warm welcome :)

Just got my HSC last night from Brian Nussbaum. Very cool guy.
Unfortunately my choice of p232 is currently not available.
I was thinking of getting a 22lr for now, since the p232 is not yet available.

Any thoughts on the Ruger sr22?
The whalther p22 is nice, but it is also not available..

Pawl, glad to have you join us. My favorites [so far] . . .
1) Kimber Custom CDP II 1911 .45ACP
2) Sig Sauer P226 x5 Competition in 9mm [Pictured in my Avatar]
