Default That Guy

Hi Everyone,
I am new... I have always thought of buying a gun and I have been going to my local range and renting a few guns. I think I am leaning toward a H&K or SIG.
The reason decided to join this fine group of people was because I am so tired of seeing what government is doing to gun rights, especially here in California. So I thought I would start reading up on what is going on here in sunny CA.
Thanks for having me.

Welcome, Roster 54. I own Sig and H&K and both are fine guns.

Glad to meet you. Hk and sig are nice. Don't forget though to check out GLock and springfield xd series. They are almost idiot proof and cheaper so you can buy more accessories.

Welcome 54. I strongly encourage you to look into buying a used Off Roster H&K or SIG to help keep those sidearms from leaving the state.

Hello everyone,
I'm new to this forum and I wanted to ask where would be the best place to post about a stolen rifle scope.

Thanks

Go to our Marketplace forum and start a for sale thread.
Read the Rules first.
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/f...splay.php?f=92

Make sure the ARs are CA legal first though. (featureless, etc.)

If unsure, post a thread in the Centerfire Rifles section and describe what you have. Ask for help as needed.
There are a lot of rules so be careful.
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/f...splay.php?f=67

Good luck.

Type in "bump" in the quick reply box.

Then hit "post quick reply".

It adds a new post and "bumps" your thread to the top.

Greetings folks ... just moved here from Texas ... I know I know ... WHY??? Job in the Bay Area was just too good to turn down!

Beside myself at all the unconstitutional gun laws that have been passed by voters and the legislation.

Thanks to Dan over at Reed's Gun Range in Santa Clara for helping to educate me on the gun sitch and tell me about this forum.

Looking forward to learning from y'all how to deal with (read live with) this craziness!

Still can't get over the "voluntary gun ownership" record they are making me fill out for EACH gun!!!! Geez ... gonna need to get a loan to pay the gun import tax (FEE) just to keep my personal property ... Nothing voluntary about that!

So I have multiple AR lowers (thankful all Off List!) and one is planned to be an AR15 Pistol. I know there are lowers with "Pistol" markings ... but they are the same thing, right? My question is can I build my AR15 Pistol with a lower that is not explicitly marked as "Pistol"?

Next question, once I have my lower, are there any barrel length restrictions for AR15 Pistol?

I am aware of the evil feature list and plan on fixing my magazines and "disassembling" to change my mag.

Thanks, in advance, for your replies!

Welcome BigD.

Maybe ask this question in our General Gun Discussions section to get the guys something to work on.

What part of Texas?
My wife was born in Vernon.

Hello All!

I signed up on Calguns ages ago but only lurked on rare occasion. Now that my wife and I have gotten the gun bug (started with our first firearm about a year and a half ago and lets just say we haven't stopped purchasing since!) I figure I should be a participant, not just a lurker! We both got so hooked we just returned from the 4-day defensive pistol course at Front Sight. If anyone is curious about front sight I have one thing to say... AMAZING! If anyone has any questions about that place just let me know, I'll gladly answer whatever I can!

I was at my local gun shop talking about a pistol I want but is off roster and he mentioned Calguns, which I had all but forgotten about. I can't stand our CA politicians and laws. Seriously... I can't get a P226 Legion in CA?!? This state is so screwed up. I want the high beaver tail but don't like the Scorpion colors.

Anyways, just wanted to say hello and introduce myself! Look forward to talking to many of you and maybe meeting some of you at the range!

-Dan C.
