Hello from the San Francisco Bay Area (well, a little south of there). I'm new to gun ownership & shooting, but I definitely enjoy it.

Hi all. Wanted to introduce myself. I recently moved back to San Diego after being away for a bit. I just bought a new mini 14 (wanted one for a while now) and have it cleaned and ready to go. I will look for more threads on this but was wondering if there's some places not too far away I can go shoot in the desert. I want to be compliant of course but don't want to waste money at the range if I can avoid it. Also potentially looking for a shooting buddy if anyone's up for it.

Thanks, I appreciate the exchange of info a good forum can provide.

Thanks for having the site. I'm sure I will get lot's of helpful info here. A little about myself;

I'm from Concord, East Bay-San Francisco.

I own 4 guns
-Mossberg 500 Persuader 12gauge 8 shot (gotta love the mossy)
-Marlin 795 (older version)
-Rohm Rg 12 (P.O.S. but I love it)
-FMK 9C1 Gen 2 (which I will be giving a review since there are lots of people who are interested and lots of people that have an opinion that have never fired one.)

I have decided to purchase one gun per year until I feel my collection is complete. The more money I save over that year the nice my gun purchase will be. I decided my next purchase will be a .357 magnum.

Hi GunnerMichael, welcome to calguns.

Sound's like your going to have quite a collection. If you dont mind me saying, if your interested in getting a 357, get a colt Python. They are pricey, but well worth it.

Hello everyone,

New guy here from Orange County Ca. I'm a firearms owner and a hunter. I'm completely blown away with the well written information and Constitutional protections/awareness that are on this site.

Not an expert in firearms, or legal rights, just looking to learn and support where I can and ask a question or two.

Respectfully,
MM

Hi Ryan, welcome to calguns.

Thank you for your service to our country, Semper Fi, from an old Navy squid.

As you can see in my avatar, I also love mussel cars.

Hello everyone,

the name is Colin and since I have found this forum so invaluable I thought I would join and share my knowledge when and where I can.

Hi everyone!

I've been a member here for about a month, but i never introduced myself... how rude! I found CalGuns via CalCCW and both have been such a wealth of knowledge.

I left CA 6 years ago when I separated from the Air Force, and I've missed it ever since. It’s good to be back. I definitely didn’t miss the gun laws. Having moved here from Virginia, I’ve been spoiled by VA's unimpeded approach to our 2nd amd rights. /sigh/ The things I do for love. I met my wonderful wife while I was stationed here from '04 to '07, but 1 year back east and we both made up our minds to try and get back. It took 6 years, but we made it back!

While I was here previously, I never owned a gun and honestly couldn't really afford the ones I wanted. I rented a lot of em though! Now that I'm back I have resigned myself to the stricter laws here and I am determined to keep myself out of trouble. I’ve already found a good deal of great advice on here and thank you all so much for the knowledge. Looking forward to making new friends
