Welcome ypg. For fun, see if you can link up with someone in OC to shoot a Lee–Enfield. One note of caution, this could lead you down the dark milsurp path.

Hello people of CalGuns,

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest hunting small & large game with bolt actions and revolvers.
New to striker type handguns and sport rifles. Bought a Springfield XD40 and Saint from a co-worker. Intrested in good places to hunt in California and getting a CCW.

Hey Admins - I'm a longtime Calguns user. Unfortunately, I forgot the password to my old account and didn't have a valid email to reset it. Can you assist me with reactivating my old username and profile? I would hate to lose out on my iTrader rating that I built up. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Default Hi

Hi everyone Iím new to the group and just wanted to say hi and I look forward to getting to know you all. I have recently got back into shooting after a 30 year break. Allot has changed and this seems like a great place to get back up to speed. Fishing was my old addiction that seems to have been replaced by a new addiction for guns and shooting.

Firearm ownership is getting more difficult in CA. It wasn't like this when I bought my first 9mm Sig Sauer in 1990. For law abiding citizens, I hope these firearms laws, rules and regulations will have meaningful impacts on safety. Otherwise these new and incoming laws are just a big pain in the gluteus maximus.
