Howdy Ya'll

Noob to the forum from South Orange County getting back into the swing of things after a long absence. Grew up in a state (MI) with much less restrictive gun/hunting laws, and I sold most of them years ago when I moved here in 1998. I first was shooting handguns and rifles at 8 years old. I used to deer hunt every year, as well as small game. I owned level action 30/30's, 30-06, 12 ga, 20ga, 410's, 22 rifles, 22 pistols, and used to "borrow" S&W .357, 44 mag, 45 revolvers, and a min-14. Well, I am trying to get accustomed to the CA way of life with guns.......30 day handgun limits, 10 day waiting periods, 10 round clips, bullet buttons, no CCW issuance in most metro counties pretty much (unless you're sleeping with the sheriff), all private transfers thru a FFL dealer, not to mention the long gun registration act to be implemented in Jan 2014 by Gov. Brown....yadda, yadda, yadda....

Anywhos...I be hangin' around, and I be a clown (most times), so I hope be edumacated by the experts. I am a moderator on an online MC forum, so I know how it can be frustrating to get the same question over and over (we get "what kinda oil should I use" daily) and do some research myself...however, eyez might ask a repeating question here and there so please be gentle and use lube on this virgin. lol

BTW, I almost forgot, I have a Sig Sauer 9mm P2022, and I plan on getting some Remington 870's (grew up with them) field, and tactical (or a Benelli SuperNova), and a Ruger Mark3 22pistol as soon as the general approves it, and I have the $$$. I would like to try skeet again (been over 20 years) at some point, but not sure when.

See ya on da slip side,

~Jason

Any of you fine folks gonna attend the Costa Mesa gun show this month? I know how they work in other states....however, i have to learn how/where the gun transfer would happen after a purchase.

You might be disappointed by the GS in Costa Mesa.

If you like old MRE's, dream catchers, sun glasses, bad lasers, ammo containers, you'll be fine.

They do have reloads at a price which is competitive, but you can still get them on CALGUNS for the same price.

But wow, the guns I have seen in the 3 times I've been there have been like Civil War guns for 3 times the price with little documentation, little else.

I could be wrong... :)

Would you recommend Ontario or Del Mar shows over Costa Mesa or are they all not worth the price of admission?

I mainly went 4-5 years ago when there was no ammo at the local gun stores.... Others might have had better experiences.

From what I understand Costa Mesa is the biggest.
If you are looking for ammo, there is a group buy that happens every once in a while where a member from Tustin gets them at the factory and we can go pick it up at his house. I've never done but will do on the next round. Keep hearing that the ammo is really good and after you add gun show admission and parking it is cheaper to buy from him.

The ammo is from Serge - aka Bulletman_911 (and are GREAT reloads - I've used 1500 .38 spl from them, and probably shot 2k of their 9mm rounds at local range)

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=397946&highlight=serge

The local sales in Tustin are from a member here - Dark Mod who basically organizes buys fron Bulletman. He only charges for the gas to drive to/from LA and to organize the buy. A great CALGUNNER..

I'd MUCH rather buy from these guys than MiWal ect (not to say there is anything wrong with them), but gosh, these guys have been selling here for a long time.

I had a debacle with another vendor who sold me reloads out of Vegas.

Howdy, 870's are great but you might also want to check out the Mossberg 500 series.
