Keeping it in the Family: Calguns Businesses in California
 
The other evening, my date asked me where I wanted to go for dinner. That got me thinking. Are there any restaurant owners here in Los Angeles? I've been thinking that I'd like to keep my money in the family, so to speak. I'd rather spend my dollars with calguns mechanics, calguns restaurantuers, calguns doctors, calguns carpenters...

You get the idea. Please add your own services/products offered in bold. This list has gotten too long and surpassed the 10000 charcter limit. As such please click on the following extension posts for further listings:

Army GI 04-19-2008 1:21 PM

This is actually a neat idea. I don't have a direct answer for your question, but we could use this thread as a means to lists businesses of calgunners the same way we list calguns gunstores on banners. It should be made into a sticky.

I sure need to go get my root canal filled, this clay stuff just won't last; wouldn't mind going to see a calguns dentist;););)

duenor 04-19-2008 1:31 PM

If Kest would prefer not to sticky such a thread in the general area, I wouldn't mind hosting it in our Entreprise forum. I really think that we ought to support each other. I for one would rather pay $2 for something from a Calgunner over $1.50 at WalMart. And, yes, I think gunsmiths and dealers ought to be included as well.

aplinker 04-19-2008 1:46 PM

If we could keep the listing updated on the 1st post it would actually work and be helpful.

If it turns into scrolling down 12 pages of comments and listings, just too much to deal with.

Would love to see it and use it, though.

I believe 'rksimple' mentioned he was a dentist in another thread. Don't know where he lives though.

duenor 04-19-2008 2:09 PM

Okay. I'll do that if people start posting.
As for your offer, Angel, unless your Dad is in supervision... um.... no thanks.

Thanks for the service duenor.

HillBilly 04-19-2008 2:41 PM

I know there is a dentist on here...I did a PPT with him once in pasadena. Don't remember his handle though...

azndmd 04-19-2008 3:04 PM

Located in Burbank

I'm a Dentist...located in Burbank since 1985. I've got a few patients who are Calgunners....that I know of...and a few more that are shooters..but I've not asked them if they visit any of the gun forums.

I kinda keep my "hobby" on the quiet side while at work....but sometimes my staff will complain about ammo / upper receivers coming in and stacked next to the dental supplies that the UPS guy has brought in :p .

PM me if you want any more info....I've gotten three other dentists shooting...but they aren't members here..I'm the 'redneck' of the group!!

I dont own a restaurant but I work part time as a waiter at 1. I work at a mexican place in Alhambra called Fronteras Mexican Cantina. Thats what I do to make money for my hobbie. My primary bread and butter job though, is managing The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in South Pasadena.

Yeah!

OP: start updating that first post ;)

Kestryll 04-19-2008 6:40 PM

If we can keep it to a clean post, meaning not too cluttered and jumbled, I'll sticky it. I like the idea we just want to keep it from becoming too hard to use and find people.
I know I'd patronize a calgunner owned business given the choice.

Okay, I've added the ones so far to the list. It sounds very promising, esp the Coffee Bean guy in SoP. I go there often. I'll be sure to say hi next time.

I definately need to contact you guys for that. I just moved into a new house and the trees here are wild. It would be nice to get those trees trimmed and orderly. Could you have them email me an estimate? I got 8 orange trees in the back and one big tree in the front.

Also, for the two dentists that posted here, I'll be contacting either one of you once I find out who is closer to Fresno. You guys will get a lot of business from me; I eat lots of gummy worms:)

duenor 04-20-2008 1:22 PM

OP updated.
Please include your entry as a one or two sentence description including city as well as norcal or socal (because I'm not that good with places)

testdummy2: auto body shop in west covina, socal. 10% off all parts/services for calguns members, must PM ahead or wear calguns tshirt/hat.
