Welcome, Brett. Do you mean start a new thread? If so, find the appropriate subforum and click the "New Thread" button on the far left.

Hello All!

I will be moving at the end of the month from IL to CA for a change of employment, scenery, and weather!

I have a few AR's I need to sort out before then and this seems the best place to figure out what I need to do!

Hey,

Los Angeles born and bred here, been shooting off and on since I was 7. So far the locker has 2 handguns, 2 rifles, and a 12gauge. Started the 10-day on another long gun yesterday.

I've found a fair bit of good info on here on occaison but haven't really trawled through much of the forums. Looking to get questions answered or at least discussed here so thought I might as well sign up.

Salutations

Hi
Back to shooting after 7 years hiatus.
Looking for rifles capable of shooting 200 yards.

You got plenty of options out there. What's your budget?

I was thinking of 17HMR or 22WSM as a cheap way teach my kids to shoot at 200 yards. But I was told that won't do.

Budget ? 700-900 with scope ... I looked at the CZ-527 ... but the rifle alone is over 700 !

Welcome WSBK.

Think about your requirements, budget, etc. and post a thread in the "General Gun Discussions" section.

You will get a variety of comments to think about.

200 yards is not much so there will be a lot of choices.

Bolt, lever, semi.

Good luck.

Hello all. Jasper here from Los Angeles.

I will be a first time gun owner, just waiting for the transfer to complete next week. I bought a Glock 19 for target shooting, and researching for a good AR to built.

Welcome sil40sx.

Don't you just love waiting 10 days for that first gun?

Welcome!

Yeah, that helpful ten day cooling off period. Because you might change your mind.

Itís even silly that CCW holders, gun owners, and LEOs have to wait 10 days.

Lots to learn here. I learn something every time I visit. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hello CalGuns!

I've been living in California for all of my life, and can't imagine living elsewhere (except for the sake our insane firearm laws).

I currently have an AR-15, a Glock 19.3, and a 1911. Can't wait to be part of the family here.

Hey all!
New gun owner here. Very much interested in education and marksmanship. Bought my first gun in August . Itís a barely used SIG P229 .40cal. Old though . Says Sig Arms , I guessed about 1996 from serial number. Got it for home protection before I realized how much fun it was. Took a basic pistol class in Vacaville and met the kind folks at A.S.P. Have been going as often as I can. Hope to get some useful knowledge here. Before I bought this gun I never realized how silly the gun laws are.

Haven’t been on for like 2 years, had some life changes, financial stuff, been settled in and have been able to actually shoot more regularly. Sold my Glock still have my Shield, but thanks to friends I’ve been learning other platforms and getting to see what I like. Probably going to work towards my CCW and add to my arsenal. This place is always good for help.
