Hi everybody. Just joined today at the suggestion of my good buddy SirNik. I'm from a small town in Mendocino county and grew up hunting and shooting. I've been in the Sacramento area for almost three years. Man talk about a different world. I definitely don't get enough shooting in nowadays. It's nice to find a forum that is for us poor old Kalifornians. I was getting tired of all the animosity toward us westcoasters that I've seen in a lot of other forums. I look forward to all the information to be had. Thanks!!

Hello everyone! New gun owner here and wanted to join up to learn more about guns as well as the laws while living in CA, as the scope of knowledge on gun laws is very limited at the moment. But I wish to learn more!

I'm hopping aboard the Calguns bandwagon after deciding to hop into the rifle game. I've had a long love affair with old military firearms, especially the M1 Garand.

Hi all,
I'm glad and honored to join this forum. I have enjoyed and learned from many of the postings. It's an exciting and important time for us in CA because of the many legal challenges that may lay ahead of us. I don't have too much of weapons knowledge to offer but I am hoping to be able to contribute in the areas of legal analysis and opinions when it comes to our 2nd Amendment Rights.

Things are getting critical for us. At one hand, we are facing one of the toughest gun opponents (probably) ever and on the other hand the public demand for ARs has been the highest and every day there are more (new) people, like myself, interested to purchase an AR-type rifle. That plus the recent Supreme Court ruling (DC gun ban law) puts us, IMHO, at a slight advantage and I think with proper PR and legal strategy we can win this once and for all. I will post about this issue in more detail shortly.

I had the pleasure of meeting some of the senior members, like "ivanimal" and "hoffmang", at the gun show earlier this month and had a chance to talk to them about various legal issues.

To be clear, I am not a lawyer (as of yet) but I am a starving 3rd year law student struggling to finish up my degree and looking for a job. Please don't take anything I say or post as legal advice. They are only my personal opinion subject to criticism and open for discussion in order to further learn and understand the maters at hand.

Again, thanks to all the members for having this forum and for their sound advice and contributions. We are truly in it together.

Regards,
Max.

Hi guys, I got directed here from another forum when I asked a buddy of mine if there were any forums SPECIFIC to the weird state we live in.

I'm an OEF vet and after a long while of going a little dry with guns in general, got bit by the bug again. Just recently I picked up a 10/2 because 22lr is a lot cheaper than shooting 308 an entire day, that is...if you can get the ammo first. Hope to learn a lot being on here and keep on top of the new info coming out.

Hello everyone I am new to this site so I have not had much time to look around but hope I will get to know some of you pretty good. Anyone one in the fresno area? Me and the wife have been getting in to shooting lately just plinking and clay pigeons and are loving it. I have some question I am sure I can find the answer to but I will ask them anyways. First I would really like to own a piece of American history so do the old military rifles need a special license "C&R" or can I buy them from a dealer like any other rifle? ell I will just ask the one question now and search around a little. Have a good day everyone.

Hi all. A family member actually referred me to the site. I just bought my first gun a few months back, although I have been around them for most of my life. I hope this site is as informative as he says and I hope to have some fun here as well!

Hi all,

I met a couple of folks from Calguns at the Cow Palace and I pretty impressed by how sober and focused on the law they were. I just got back into target shooting and am looking forward to finding out what's what in CA, gun-wise!

Thumbs up Getting my first handgun

Hello, all! My hubby turned me on to this site. I am paying off my first handgun this coming weekend. It's a 2009 Walther P22, in that weird swirly gray color with a nickel slide. Yay! I've had a little shooting experience, but will be taking my safety test when I pick it up.

Hi, I've been lurking every so often for the last year or so since I've got the urge to start building my own AR. I found Calguns in a google search while researching Cal legal AR's though I've found myself back here a few times just reading through the posts and only recently registered as a member.

I'm a Vet, own an XD40 and by my birthday in Aug of this year I'm committed to at least getting a lower.

Cheers,
~Kevin

Awesome! There are lots of laws regarding AR's but once you understand it all it become simple. If you have any questions feel free to post.

Welcome to Calguns!

Hi. I'm a lurker coming out of the shadows also.

I've just completed paperwork for a Fulton Armory Titan, and this forum has been a key source of information in my research on obtaining such a firearm in CA.

I look foward to being more active on the forums and with Calguns - or at least a little less "lurkish".

Long time Lurker, first time poster.

A little about me-- I live in Riverside County (Cherry Valley). I'm former Navy AO and EOD (Back when EOD was not a rate). I'm a school teacher now, but don't hold that against me. I love to teach and I care about what goes into my kids heads. I love the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I shoot fairly regularly, mostly long range stuff-- but I don't mind shooting steel plates with my 1911's.
I'm happy to be here-- this place seems like it's full of friendly folks.
Thanks for your time,
Joe

Long time lurker and not a first time poster...

First off thanks for all this Forum and it's moderators do. It is a needed service and thanks for doing it.

Briefly I am a guy who's been wearing a uniform since 18 in the service of my Country or the State. For the record I am a proud alumni of the 101st Abn. Class of 75. Since then I have had my fun as a Law Enforcement Officer..going on 29 years now. I've been lucky, I've worked for Uncle Sam, Mayberry and where I am now, a big city. I am proud of what I do but I recognized along time ago that being one doesn't mean I know it all & the learning never stops. Never.

And for the record I am a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment means all of us and not a select few.

So with all that boring stuff 'bout me I must confess my puzzlement at all the different acronyms. Is there anywhere here that will give me a list of what they all mean? I admit that BTT and "bump" and FTF (i figured FTF out on my own...lol) but honestly I don't know them. It's just learning a new language I guess. So ANY help would be appreciated.

Thanks again!

long time lurker, first time poster.

was brought up around guns and law enforcement. i now work for DOJ/BOP and i am a FIRM believer in the SECOND AMENDMENT. it IS what has protected this country for many years from foreign invaders.

i have had my share years ago of ak/sks type rifles and have let them go. i recently purchased a AR lower to build, but after pricing out ALL the components that i wanted, i just ended up purchasing a RockRiverArms LAR varminter. i couldnt argue with the price as it was the same as if i were to build it!!!! so i bought it at a local show. i also have several other "toys of enjoyment" and may post up at a later time and the appropriate blog.

whom ever decided to put this forum together, THANK YOU. it is wonderfully set up and very easy to navigate. i will be here for a long time, WITH my 2nd Amendment rights.
