Welcome, the Sig is nice but of course you need to add the 1911

Talk about a late bloomer Welcome to the active side. You're already buying .45 ACP ammo, you might as well buy a 1911 to keep your P220 company. My P220 & RIA 1911A1 have bonded and enjoy their range outings.

Northern Cali new member here. With all the crazy new gun laws and surprising rulings I have found myself winding up here frequently, and let's face it, the handgun marketplace is a glimmer of hope for finding off-roster toys/tools.

Oh, and I ended up with the Sig.
I first looked a couple of years ago and have been looking some since, I haven't had a need to post so I didn't join. I don't know how much I will post but decided to join anyway. I also am into airguns.

Hey everyone! Glad to be here and this is my story.

I grew up in rural Western NY state and owned my first gun at the age of 7. A bolt action .22 rifle that my father had trimmed the stock on. This trim job allowed my 7 year old self and my 9 year old brother to shoot. By 9, I had proven my self safe, and I was taking that gun into the woods unsupervised to target shoot. For the record and those who might condemn that as unsafe, I fully respected and knew the dangers involved and I was worthy of the right - even at the age of 9.

In 1991, I was 19 and it was time for a change. I came to California (I left my guns in NY) to live what I now see as a mostly urban lifestyle. I have lived that gun free urban life until very recently. In mid May of this year my home was burglarized while I was out of town on a vacation. I found out about the burglary when I was 8 hours drive away from home. My first stop when I returned was the local outdoors store to "pick up" a 12 ga. pump action. Just in case "they" decided to come back for what they didn't take on the first go 'round. It was then that I learned what it meant to buy a gun in CA. My how times have changed. The last gun I bought was purchased from Montgomery Ward, by my Mother, with money I had earned from working through the summer on a local dairy in rural New York state. It was a semi-automatic 22 rifle. I added a scope and sighted it in using a 500 round box of ammo (Remington Viper? It had a snake on a mostly green box as I recall) I purchased the ammo my self (if memory serves me) at a local Ames department store. Like I said, times have changed. I have recently purchased a handgun, became a member at my local range, and rediscovered my love for shooting. My father is gone now, but he taught first me to respect guns, and how to shoot. "You can't bring that bullet back, so be sure you know what you are shooting at before you shoot", he said. He was an avid hunter and to say venison built me would be appropriate. I do not hunt now, and I love venison jerky. Donations gladly accepted.

I still sleep with my new 12 ga. close at hand. I probably always will. I am not afraid. I am simply.... prepared. In all honestly, it is my hope that I am over-prepared and use of force never escalates the point where powder is burned.

Glad to be here among fellow citizens who value our rights and enjoy our freedoms.

Thanks for reading,
WNYGunGuy

PS,
Where can I get a G43 9mm?....not kidding. See ya around.

Welcome to Calguns and back to firearms ownership WNYGunGuy.

You will need to look in the marketplace section here for your G43, expect to pay the CA price premium since they are off list. There might be an exception, you can be gifted one from an out of state grandparent, parent, child or grandchild.
