Default Welcome!

Hi Wallen. Welcome back to CA. In my observation, you'll need to have gun-friendly support in this state, especially having been acclimated to AZ. MO I suspect is similar. I grew up in Texas where hunting and fishing was common, and parents weren't afraid to introduce a respect for guns to kids early. What is you and your family's interest in guns: collecting, buy-sell dealer, hunting, sport/competition -shooting, defense against violence, other?

Hi Deimos. Welcome to gun ownership. Why did you buy a gun and what do you hope to accomplish? For me, it's primarily for home/ self-defense, though I like to still hunt if the opportunity arises.

I'm new here, and finally getting back to some target shooting after 30 years. My interest is .22LR prone long range. Thanks for hosting a nice group of interested people.

New here. I've been lurking for a while. I've been researching firearm info and types for about a year now, when I first got interested in them. I've always had a slight interest in them, but never considered owning one.

This summer I went to LAX Firing Range for my bachelor party. I loved it. Now I'm hooked and just saving up to buy my own gun(s) so I don't have to keep renting them.

I'm a freelance illustrator and graphic design. I mostly illustrate comics and graphic novels... hence my username. Right now I'm working on a zombie themed graphic novel and in my spare time my own book that is a throwback to old car chase films like Bullitt.

I'm interested in AR-15s mostly, but would like to shoot a 1911 and well... anything I can get my hands on.

Hello All, I've never shot a gun before and am interested in acquiring a firearm for home protection. I'm a Graphic Designer/Photographer/Video specialist and would like to learn more about guns in general. I have a few friends and family that are gun enthusiasts and have pointed me to this direction. From what I've learned so far, I'm looking into getting a S&W Revolver but I'm open to many suggestions.
thx all!

Talking Newby On Board!

Hi Everyone,

I've never owned a gun. My total firearms experience is the one time I held and fired a .22 revolver using about 30 rounds at a target 10 ft away, and that sums up my experience. Being an educated man, I find my utter ignorance of firearm use and safety a hole that needs filling.

I hope to learn a ton, everyone seems very friendly, and in the near future I plan to start my on hands firearms education with proper classes, practice, and of course-the purchase of the proper firearms.

I'm looking to eventually get a Bushmaster ACR as my rifle, a semi-auto shotgun, and a semi-auto handgun. I still have a lot of research and hands on to do before I decide, so that is what I will be doing with my spare time.

Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.

Happy to be here!

Hello everybody. I finally pulled the trigger (pun intended) and purchased my first gun. I was told by a couple of people that I should look here. So, here I am. I hope to learn a lot and continue the addiction that is shooting.

wise decision to actually shoot and compare different handguns before the big purchase.

I have been reading the site for a while and recently signed up. Mostly because I plan on buying/ selling some guns at some point and thought I could save some time going through the sale forum. Looks like a good group and I thought I would try and get more involved. Fortunately people I know and the area I live is excepting of firearms so I was not fully aware of some of the bs going on till a few years ago when I started looking beyond my area. Anyway I hope to find some good deals on here and maybe find a new home for some of mine.
