Welcome James.

You can post right away, but if you are selling something, please read the rules first to avoid problems and smart-aleck comments.

Hello everyone,
I'm new here on the forum. I've trolled it for a while. Had issues with the email verification "dumb hotmail" lol. I am prior service Army. I currently only own one weapon a Springfield XD sub compact. In the future I am looking to buy a rifle for marksmanship shooting which I really enjoy and a shotgun of some sort (I don't know much about those) for clay shooting and turkey hunting which I also enjoy very much. I like to reload my own .40 rounds to save money and there's also something about making your own ammo and using that to shoot with. Anyways, I hope to contribute as much as my limited knowledge can help here and look forward to learning from all of you.

Hi all. I've been lurking for a bit, but I figure I should introduce myself. I'm one of those guys who is only recently really getting into things, so I'm looking to learn as much as I can. Glad that such a great resource exists.

Newbie here. I'm a forty year California resident and lifetime gun owner. I miss the days when gun purchases were much simpler. I'm trying to better understand new California gun laws and hopefully find resources to help protect our 2nd Amendment rights. Thanks for being here.

Just joined, but have been lurking for a long time. Currently live in SoCal, but my company is relocating me to Northern AZ later this year. I have learned a bunch here! Thanks.

Hi all. I recently moved back to California after almost three decades in New York City, where gun laws are even worse than San Francisco (I know, how is that even possible?) I grew up in SoCal and have been shooting since before I could drive—back when it was LEGAL to open carry. Sigh. The good 'ol days.

Not being able to own firearms in NYC, I channeled my military and shooting interests into airsoft and founded a tactical accessories company, Moondog Industries. I also produce large-scale MilSim events for charity.

Anyway, now that I can legally own real-steel again, I'm on this board learning the Byzantine rules on tactical, long-gun ownership and my brother recommended I join. I plan to get back into hunting, IDPA and possible 3G eventually.

Hey everybody!

Been reading posts on this forum for a couple years, and finally decided to join. Lifelong SoCal resident and been shooting and hunting for 17 years now. I was initially focused on anything shotgun related (hunting upland game when in season, skeet, trap, sporting clays in the offseason), but I have recently ventured into the AR platform. I'm looking forward to learning more about our great sport and getting to know some fellow California gun enthusiasts.

P.S. this is one of my first times really using a forum, and I know I have some learning to do.

Hello all. I've been a long-time reader of posts and resources here, but only recently decided to become a member. I'm originally from Indiana, and after coming here on the USMC's dime ('09-'14) decided to stick around.

I got my first shotgun at the age of 11, and I've had a gun in my hand since. I have to say, the state of things here in California does not leave a smile on my face. That being said, staying updated on changes, developments, and the nuances of every new regulation helps me navigate this state's astounding infringements on the Second Amendment.

I hope to be able to contribute as much as I gain here, and look forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome Sam.

Lots to learn, have fun.

Teaching moment #1: Don't move here.
(Or did you join pre-move?)

Stay out of Off Topic forum for a while to avoid potential non-good interactions.
Most of the snark is all in good fun but.....
