Hello everyone!

Got into the whole firearms thing this summer, and am working up quite a collection (to my poor bank account's dismay).

Got a Browning Buckmark Camper, Springfield M1911 Loaded, HK USP, HK P7M8, Ruger 10/22, and a Howa M1500 (soon to be sold tho).

Gonna be adding an M1 Garand to my collection in a week or two, and hopefully an OLL AR sometime soon as well,

Looking to add a Beretta Px4 Storm and an HK P2000 (trend?... nah!) in the future...

Currently studying in Bezerkeley and split my time shooting at Chabot, San Leandro, and Reed's Indoor Range.

I have 8 firearms in my collection and after reading the info on this site I hope to add more soon.

AR-15 wiht 3 configurations, Tannery Shop Lower, FAB 10 Lower, DPMS single Shot Lower.
Romanian SKS
Kel-Tek SU-16
Mossberg 500
Cobray M-12 .380
Beretta 92fs Brigadier Stainless Steel. 9mm
Beretta .32 Tomcat

Hi all, I'm new. I'm a student diving into the murky (albeit shallow) waters of the 2nd amendment, and have been enjoying the conversations here. They have been quite beneficial! I hope I can contribute and become a part of the conversation here as well.

A sincere "how ya"ll doin'? and man I love this place. I have lurked here for several weeks and found this to be a GREAT site for those of us living behind the iron curtain and for keeping those about to move in the land of the oppressed informed on current issues. Thanks to all contributors both LE and civilian.

My name is Carl aka The DEUCE. I am a devoted husband and father of 2 (17 year old son and 12 year old daughter). Guns were never aloud in the house as a kid so I never had an urge shoot, until now. Last year a friend of mine took my son and I out behind Jawbone Canyon Ranger Station for a shooting tutorial. What a rush. Since then my son and I have attended a Gun Safety course at SharpShooters in Torrance, CA. Over the last few months I have acquired a couple of rifles and a pistol:
- Mosin Nagant M44
- Ruger 10/22
- Springfield XD .40

I want to learn more about the Commi-fornia gun laws that are restricting me from having more fun within this state as well as meet some peeps with the same interests.

Welcome to the site and welcome to the sport Deuce! I think you found the right place.

This is a great site with lot's of friendly members. Good California specific information to be had with the search function or by asking when you can't find it on your own.

Ive reading this site for some time...I appreciate the info especially all the goofy guns laws. From the conservative part of Calif, Fresno...son of a reitred DFG Game Warden. He also had Moore's Custom Reloading for 50 plus years in Porterville.

Gun collector, mainly Smith & Wesson. Varmit hunter and ranchers buddy.
My Dad, my cousin and my two sons operate a business (monkey business) called Paladin Rodent Control...yep we special in varmit control...

We just had a special board meeting and decided to expand the Goals and Objectives of PRC to include shooting matches specializing in Spotted Owls, Mountain Lions, and California Condors. Please dont tell anyone.

My Dad may be gone but he approves.

I case you missed it I'm also a wanta be comedian dressed in Insurance Broker drag

Hello, joined up on the suggestion of a friend from another forum and another friend I met at the shooting range. I own a Mosin Nagant and a Charles Daly shotgun, and hope to expand my collection.

A long time lurker here. Great site, thanks to all for the information, advice and comradery.
I've taken a number of years off plinking due to working way too much. Although I was never a particularly spectacular shot, I'm just getting back into it, and need to dust off a couple toys from the back of the safe. Actually a couple dozen toys.
Prior military, both Air Force, then later CA National Guard in Desert Storm and the LA Riots. Spent the last couple decades in high tech.
I've met a few members and traded some messages, but I'm looking forward to meeting more of you at events and the ranges. I don't say much, but hopefully can make the occasional helpful contribution. Maybe one of you guys can finally teach me to hit the paper. ;-)
TP

I wanted to take a minute to say Hello and Greetings to all the newer members joining CalGuns! Heres a quick few pointers for all you new guys!

*Theres tons and tons of great information floating around here, so dont be afraid to put it to use!
*The members here are some of the best informed in regards to california gun laws around!
*I hope you all take the time to learn more, dont be afraid to ask questions if you can find your answer after using the "Search" button. Its located in the lower dark blue bar near the top of the page. Alot of your basic questions can be answered right thru that!
*If you cant find the answer, then remember the golden rule, theres no such thing as a dumb question with us! If we dont know the answer, I promise you, we can direct you to where you can find out the answer!
*Take time to get to know the folks around here, we are just like any other disfunctional family, we have the whole spectrum, and we do everything that a family does. We laugh, we talk, we discuss, we argue, we get mad, we stomp our feet and throw tantrums, and yet no matter what, we are still pretty much a family after the smoke clears. I attribute some of my best friends to having met them here on Calguns. For the most part, we are all pretty much approachable, so "dunt be skuured!"

Hey everybody, newbie here. I recently realized that I belong to several gun forums, but not the biggest gun forum in my God-forsaken state, so here I am! I live in the Santa Cruz Mnts and work at the Los Altos Rod and Gun Club (I'm sure some of you South Bay residents are familiar with it). Anyway, I'm sure I'll ask a lot of dumb questions, but maybe you'll get lucky and I'll give a few stupid answers too.

Figure I'd say hi to everyone, actually the first forum I've joined that I have introduced myself. Incase anyone wonders Talon is my actual given name and there's a short but sweet story behind it if anyones interested. I'm from So Cal and I work at Iron Sights shooting range in Oceanside. I have a DSA lower with Stage arms upper as my AR(mods in process, M1A, Mossberg 500(slightly modified) and a growing selection of glocks are my main pics from my collection.

Anybody wants to know anymore just let me know.

Just wanted to say hi. Found this forum quite by accident, while searching for 1911 kits (Sal, I might be interested) and it seems like a good one. I look forward to posting here and learning lots

Smile Hello all!

Hi all,

New Memeber, I was referred here off of another forum (Black Majic specifically). And being that I am a CA-Native/gun owner that is becoming increasingly more aware of the politics of gun ownership...this seemed like the place.

I look forward to meeting you in the future,

RFB

Hi Calgunners!
I am a new member (but not new to the site)....
Have done alot of researching for my first OLL build.
Lots of very valuable info here (in fact, I was kind of shying away from building an AR until I got better educated on the legality of this stuff.)
Finished my EBR and loving it !
I went with Stag and have had no complaints with the rifle or any issues.
Just installed an Eotech 512 and will go out next week and see how it goes.
Thanks for the great site and helping me blow a sizable chunk of cash!

Hello all,

Although I've posted a couple of times on one of the threads about my newest toy, I wanted to introduce myself.

I am an Army officer currently stationed in Ft. Benning, GA, but I lived in CA prior to going on active duty. I was recently back there as, after returning from Afghanistan, I attended UCLA in order to get my Master's degree. I spent a year and a half living in Thousand Oaks and, although I miss Southern California, it is nice to be in a more gun friendly state. I still have family in CA, so I will be returning regularly and hope to retire there in another 4 years or so.

It's nice to be a part of the forum,

Bob

19 Years old getting back into the hobby.

Parents divorced a couple years back which killed my interest since I never had anyone to shoot with... plus living in southern California, there's nowhere to even shoot besides a couple overpriced 100m ranges.

Anyway, glad to be apart of the forums... I'm looking forward to learning.

Hi bigdave, welcome to CG. We've probably crossed paths at LARG more than once (more likely you've flagged me for some minor safety violations at the tin can range)

Oh yeah, welcome all you new calgunners!
