Hello guys, I bought my first gun before going off to college a couple months ago. I heard about this place through a poster at a rifle range I go to. I mainly joined to ask why the charity description on Amazon Smile has every single word capitalized.

Hi all. Just moved back to San Diego after 5 years in Portland, OR. Learned to love duck and deer hunting, as well as target shooting while up in the Pac NW. Have been lurking on this forum since I found out we were moving earlier this year, and finally got off my butt and signed up

Welcome kes.

Don't get confused with that other guy that has a similar name.

He plays rough sometimes.

What's going on Calgunners! I'm new to the site and to the world of guns. Just moved from San Diego to the Bay Area. Looking to learn more about the topic, just for the FSC and excited to get my hands on my first handgun

I am looking into the Sig Sauer p226 line. It's between the MK-25 and the extreme, but leaning towards the extreme because of the built in SRT.

Hi all, WDL1982 here.
Just got my green card yesterday, bought my first 3 guns to start my collection today.
Sig P226 Navy Mk25 9mm
Ruger Mini 14 5.56mm
VEPR AK 7.62x39mm with grip wrap (featureless). The shop I visited just got this one in today after a distributor found it in the back of a warehouse (inside the USA, imported a long time ago). I snapped it up.

I'm in the SF East Bay area, probably moving to Sacramento area soon. Originally from Belgium, came to USA (SF Bay Area) in 2013.

I get to pick them up on 9/29, which happens to be my birthday, Happy 35 to me!

Signed up a while ago and thought I posted previously, but just posted a WTB and shows as my first post. Soooo, I moved to Orange County back in mid 2015 from Denver. Sold half my CA illegal and not needed guns before coming out here. Should have brought them and offered them to everyone here.

Anyway, sad to become familiar with all the Democratic useless legislation that we are all having to deal with. I'm pretty much all set with my collection except I'm now wishing I had bought a Springfield EMP in 40S&W before I left Denver.

We'll see if I end up with one.

In the mean time, cheers to everyone here and thanks for all the help in understanding how the CA gun laws and processes work!

Eric
