Hi folks! Glad to be here! I'm from the far north. I like 1022's and other rimfires including MKII, MkIII and my .22-250 sqweak gitter. I like to load my own for precision and $$$. Looking forward to great shooting info and exchanges here.
I know I'll learn and hope to help!

Thumbs up New Member

Hi all. Like others I've been poking around this site for several months learning about Cal gun laws (because I'm not that kind of lawyer), local ammo deals, etc. I'm a new gun owner - purchased a Ruger .357 GP100 with a 6 inch barrel for home defense late last year at my wife's request. I think she now regrets that request - guns are like tattoos (can't have just one). I've since added a Remington 870 Express and a Browning Buck Mark Camper .22. Starting with the basics, but it's a bad time to start collecting guns and ammo (gets pretty frustrating to read about the availability and prices 5-10 years ago).

What's up everyone. New person from modesto area. Just bought third hand gun last saturday. S&Wm&p 9mm. I'm interested interested in learning and obtaining an ar15 in the close future and also interested in reloading and would like to get into that as well. Very new to firearms in general so I'm interested in just about all aspects of the trade. Nice to see a helpful community site in the state kind of feels more personal. LoL

Greetings,
Thanks for such an informative site! Just bought an HD shotgun (my first firearm) and I am looking forward to educating myself in firearms training, information about the laws and regulations (and potential regulations) regarding firearms in our state. I would like to purchase a handgun in the future (soon) and I'm looking forward to learning more and more.

Jaime

Hello, post one. Name is Marcus, I'm in Washington and a dealer. Currently I don't ship to CA because of all the hoops we have to jump through and I make it clear in the terms of the auction I work with. But recently we had a CA resident bid and win two C&R firearms and I'm here to make sure they're legal in your criminally controlled state. So expect to see some questions about firearms in other sections.

Thanks for any help.

Default Taurus .357 mag. Trade or ??

I have a Taurus .357 in excellent condition. Looking to trade for similar valued 9mm. I think the Ruger P95 is the gun I'd like to trade for but would consider other brands. I live in Antioch, SF Bay area. Prefer a local trade.

Default I have always been a face to face guy but....

Its time to say hello to all and introduce myself. I have been shooting since I was a kid and began collecting at 19 (now in my early 40s). I have always enjoyed going to gun stores and shows to access information and solutions to my hobbys changing needs. In the current frenzy, the shows have become too crowded for my tastes and the local gun store now requires you to take a number. In my search for answers and info, I found Calguns. I love this place! Great info, strong views, and my state specific. Thanks for being here and I hope that I can add something to the mix.

A few bits about me at the moment...

I am planning to do my first Appleseed event. Has anybody above 18 years old participated in one of these? Also, I need about 800 rounds of good 22lr ammo...Any ideas?

I love Colt revolvers and Autos. I own 2 1911s (series 70 and a Gold Cup), a 6' Python, a 6' Trooper II, and a very early Cobra. I am looking for a 6' Diamondback in 22LR and an Anaconda.

I have a Para P12/45 that I bought new in 1993 (and then stuck in a safe unfired with a bunch of magazines) that I am now attempting to customize. I have many questions about how to do this. I also want parts for it.

I own an Astra A100 .40sw, Astra A70 9mm, Astra Cub/Camper .22 short and I am on the lookout for magazines, parts, and info.

Enjoy the weekend!

See no one has posted here for a while. I just joined a few days ago but have read a lot of posts and learned a lot already. Very excellent site. Used to shoot a lot many years ago and still have a Glenfield 22 semi rifle w/scope and bolt action single shot 12 guage. Recently got back to shooting with the world going to hell in a handbasket. Self defense is high priority these days. New handgun, new shotgun, and new rifle, but ammo is a pain to find and prices are outrageous.

I'm new here too. Live in the south bay. I have a Ruger Security Six and a few days to go before I can pickup my Mossberg 500 12 gauge. Nothing fancy w/the Mossberg, just a 500 with a 20" barrel.

I don't have a lot of gun experience but I also feel the need to be able to protect the family if required. I'm not new to forums in general, so I'll go over the newbie FAQ's and post only when I get stumped.

Thanks for being here. Excellent resource so far.

I am here all the way from The Badger State where it's a balmy 17degrees and I shoveled snow again yesterday. I stopped by and saw that it was a place with lots of good information, and you can never learn too much.

Been lurking long enough. It's time to introduce myself, been picking up a few guns over the last few years and it's been a lot of fun. Actually, it's been rather addicting. Luckily, I have a very supportive wife, who is also into guns!

Look forward to learning from you all here.

Rock on!

Great site, thanks to the mods for keeping it clean.

When i say northern calif, i mean north ,lol not sf or sac, but 2.5 hours north of Sac!!

Was outta shootin for 15 years, my boy is now 14 and got my guns out and resetup my dillon and just started him out. Bought 3 guns in the last 4 months, so far so good.

Been writing alot of letters to the people in sacramento, especially Gov Brown who im hoping will veto the majority of the bills, i know they have a super majority but im hopeful.

Enjoy

Ok , first entry..... trying to figure out how this all works. I'm looking for something in particular. Just don't really know where to start. hmmm Alright It said start here so I did. My search turned up nothing. It said too much information. I need someone to walk me through the whole forum thing. I was hoping to find a gun I have been searching for. I'm a little frustrated and confused

I've browsed the Calguns forums for sometime now, but never registered until now. I wanted to join this community because I have already gained a lot from the informative posts that have helped guide me through my recent firearm purchases.

I love the Bay Area, I love California, and I LOVE FREEDOM. That's why I am here.
