New here,
I live in Los Angeles county...where Walmart doesn't sell ammo....

Vietnam era Vet 1974-1976 MOS 11B..expert medal in every weapon.

Just wanted to to a few Barbie Doll builds and stay outta trouble. Still have some stuff from the late 70's (pre ban) but not sure how that works now.

Son is almost 14 and I want to introduce him to the brotherhood of safe gun handling and expert marksmanship.

1st 21st, 25th Infantry Gimlet..."Duty Sir"

I listen to country, fly airplanes for fun and believe in the US Constitution.
I also believe God listens to me when I take the time to chat with him.

Don't ask about the sig..please!

John

Default Thanks for such a great resource and we are giving back.

Got on your site first to find out about how to do transfers the right way from family members. Great info and advice that we couldn't find clear answers or real inof about.

Then started looking around, posting comments, asking questions, put an item for sale (sold right away) and actually got a great paying web site referral job from a posting I commented too of another calgun member.

We have offered up discounted services to cal gun members for graphic design and product design. Our first job when it is complete we will give back a % to CGN fund as a sales commission.

To date have 1 solid paid client, 1 waiting to hear back from and 1 just this am asking info.

Also now just waiting to get firearms that where willed, left for me and gifted to me years ago into my hands.

Thanks,
Scott

Hi, I'm new here too. I'm not new to shooting though. I've been shooting something or another since I was twelve. I'm not going to discuss how long ago that was.

But I'm a hunter and a rookie trapshooter and a CCW holder, so I thought I might as well participate here. Besides, one of my husband's friends keeps pestering us to join.

Another new guy checking in. I recently purchased some OLLs from a friend who has relocated to greener pastures (Colorado). I've been lurking around for months researching in preparation of building a CA legal AR to go along with my Mini-14.

Default New to the forum!

So, how's it all going? I'm new to the thread. I'm in the USAF currently in Japan, got my orders to California which at first I was excited to finally get out of this humid climate and back to the outdoors and do some shooting. Then I started to check out the gun laws.

I figured I should join with the community and have some fun.

New to this forum. It was highly recommended by a friend (not sure of his username). Hoping to get some info in here to clear up some of the mess out there.

I also keep getting kicked out of the forum and my computer says it can't find the server. Don't think its a problem with my laptop (brand new MacPro) as I don't experience this on other forums. Hope thats not a sign of things to come.

Hello from Northern Cal. 707 area code.
I am sorta new to guns. I did plinking when I was a kid. My Dad had a shotgun for a while but we never used it much. I have never 'owned' my own gun until now. I am starting off with a new Beretta 9mm. I tested quite a few at rental/ranges, I tested (50 rds.through each gun) ;
-Glock 19
-Glock 17 (both 9mm)
- Sig P220 45
- Sig P226 9mm
- Colt 1911
- M&P 40
- But it finally came down to a Beretta 92 FS. I was the most accurate with this tool. And it 'looks good'. And it was alot cheaper than a Sig.
It also seemed easy to sight quickly, I really like the Sig, though, way too expensive though. I want to wait and search around for a used P220 though.

I am ambidextrous shooter. My groupings are tighter when I shoot lefty. But 'bout the same right.
I am taking a PC 832 class here in NorCal. I figure I should start out in this handgun world with taking a class. It ought to be good, it is what all LE students have to take at LE academy's.

Hi, I'm thinking about building an AR, and if so, find someplace to get instruction to not be an idiot with it. A friend who I don't know the user name of recommended this place, and it's been pretty helpful so far.

Noob here. I'm in Bakersfield but I'm also in LA and the Inland Empire a couple times a month. I've had several handguns in the past, sold them just before the wedding, and now it's time to build the safe back up.

I'm in my 10 day waiting period for my first shotgun.

Cool I have arrived.

Hey, yo, is this thing on? Not a big blogger. Been action shooting at Chabot for quite some time now most everyone seems to be active here, figured it was high time to jump in, lets see what happens. Next step is to figure out who is who... Me, I shoot a Saiga 12 and 7.62 both I converted myself and a Kimber 1911 eclipse, I've done conversions on most calibers of Saigas with no complaints to date. I'm working on my three gun skills and enjoying every, minute of it, the people I have met in this process have been very helpful and extreeeemly entertaining Thank you all!!

Hello to every one. I'm 66 now and have just developed an interest in target and varment shooting. I inherited a Marlin 30-30 rifle and a Colt 38 PS from my dad some 40 years ago and they have just been stored in my closet these many years. I pulled them out a few days, wiped them down and gave them a light coat of oil. Plan to shoot them soon. I plan to pick up a 22 cal pistol soon.

Really happy that I discovered this forum as I am sure I will learn a lot.

Hello to everyone

Saw this board while looking up range info regarding times and fees for the Angeles shooting range where I took my family yesterday for their first time shooting my firearms. So after using this forum for general information across the years I finally decided to make an actual account.

It wasn't really a prank - it was an enviromentally sensitive protest.


Though the protest wasn't a Calguns Foundation sanctioned event, please consider making a donation to them.

Hello All. New Guy in SOCAL. New to CALGUNS, but not shooting. Been shooting for 25ish years, reloading for 20ish. NRA lifer (along with my 5 and 3 1/2 year-olds).
Currently, I stick to reloading 7mm Rem Mag, 7mm-08, 308 Win, 30-06, and 38/357. I've been target shooting and hunting with bolt actions up until recently. Now I'm venturing into a DPMS pattern 308 caliber AR. Just for playing . Can't believe I've just found CALGUNS. I'm reading a lot of great stuff
