Good morning! I've just joined the forum after learning about it from a local gun store owned by an acquaintance. Not new to guns by any means but haven't really been active with them for a while.

Main form of entertainment for the last few years has been riding my Harley with my wife. Then some grandkids came along and they became more the focus.

I've been looking around in here and see some interesting topics. Looking forward to spending time here!

Default Hello!

Good morning Calguns!

First, thank you to all who make this forum possible and to all who participate! This has been an invaluable resource as I begin my lifelong journey asserting my Second Amendment right. I am new to both firearms and Calguns and look forward to learning and being part of the conversation!

Morning all and thanks for the nod. I'm no where close to most of you but since I enjoy shooting and reloading I belong to a couple of different sites.
I have a Lyman DPS II that I was trying to find a power cord for. When I did the google thing a thread popped up here so after reading it and looking around I decided to sign on up. I look forward to hanging out more in your reloading area.
I'm an avid shooter, reloader and now that the kids are getting older it's a real pleasure to have them in there dumping powder and getting to spend some quality time with them rather than them in their Iphones and laptops.
I mainly hang my hat at handloadersbench.com where I'm a Board Founder but I love to read and learn so like I said I'm on a few other boards as well, all under the same user name as here.
Once again thanks for having me and I look forward to being part of community.

Take care Be safe Poacher.

Hello. I haven't logged into Calguns in awhile. I feel new again. So Just wanted to say I'm back and will probably be on more. I wanted to read about people's opinions on the new law about buying ammo in CA.

Also my new GF of two years well, I will finally be taking her to shoot for the first time this weekend. Probably rent an M&P Shield 9mm.

Far as me, I'm probably going to be looking for a new/used handgun for concealed carry. My last log on I was almost going to buy a Springfield XDm .45

Hello All,

I live in the Bay Area (for now). Married to a wonderful lady and three step-sons; two of which plan to join the Navy when they graduate from High school. My hobbies are anything construction related (I guess thatís my professional life too), anything with a motor (old and new Harleyís are my current hang up), garage machinist and whatever task my wife throws my way....Iím a jack of all trades, master of none. Which has lead me here.

Iíve owned a few rifles over the years. Assembled an AR for fun and most recently two 80% 1911.

Iíve finally been issued SN and now Iím looking for someone in the Bay Area who can properly engrave everything for me. They donít give you much time to get it done! 🤔

Look forward to learning from those of you who have been around the block on all this stuff.

Iíll either make a post regarding engraving or find one that has current discussions to chime in on.

Thanks in Advance!!

Alex

Hey everyone- new here.

Have owned a 9mm Springfield XD for several months but needed some place to come for all my questions (especially with CA's super confusing laws!) about my AR15 that's soon to be here.

Definitely looking forward to getting good advice and having some of my questions answered!

Good morning. I learned of Calguns online just today. I've had a Springfield Armory XD9 for about 2y now and recently acquired a Hi-Point 995TS. As I am new to carbines and the like (new to pretty much everything firearm I'd say) I am looking for guidance and advise to keep within CA guidelines.
Thanks for having me.

Hi everyone.

Long-time lurker, first-time poster here. My name is Chris and I live in the San Gabriel Valley, La Puente specifically. Google has led me to Calguns almost every time I search for something gun-related, so I finally decided to join.

I have to admit that I am relatively new to shooting. My first trip to the range was two years ago with my girlfriend's cousin. That day, I must've shot everything from .22 to .45 - a Desert Eagle, lever-action .44, .357 revolver, 12 gauge shotgun, several AR's, and other pistols that I can't remember. Needless to say, I was hooked. Since then, I've bought a Glock 17, Smith and Wesson 929, and a Heritage Rough Rider. Of course, I am looking to expand that collection greatly. I'm looking to buy a Mosin Nagant next and/or build an AR-15, hoping both happen sometime this year. I'd like to get into 3-gun shooting someday and maybe even cowboy action shooting if I can muster up the courage to dress up for it

Other than that, not much more to say. Looking forward to becoming an active member on this site and helping others when I can!

Hey everyone! Just got onboard here and recently purchased my first gun, a CZ-75, from 2nd Amendment Sports in Bakersfield. Already looking at the H&K USP Elite and the SIG P226. Looking forward to learning from everyone here as well as contributing as much as possible.

Default New to forum

Hi all, I'm new to the forum and wanted to say hi :-)

New to guns actually as well, I started shooting about a year ago. Started because my son joined the Marine Corps and he had also never shot a gun so we figured would be a good idea to take some classes and shoot some firearms.

Since then he has graduated bootcamp and SOI earning the Marksman badge, and I have acquired 2 handguns and a rifle and am currently awaiting approval of my CCW packet from Placer County (all requirements are in).

Anyhow -- hi everyone :-)
