My name is Jeff and I live in Visalia. I mostly film guns in slow motion for Youtube videos. I'm always looking for private land to shoot things ranges won't allow, but can still be done safely.

I am planning on filming some SAPI plates being shot with various calibers. The plates are rated for up to 30.06 armor piercing rounds.

Wow, am I the first from Madera?
Not too many special skills at 21. I'm part time in college studying to be who knows what, and trying to find a new, full time job that can help me live a bit more, "comfortably." One thing I want to do is attend the gunsmith school in Lassen, but I'm not sure how the job market is.

Anyone ever shoot up in the Sierra's?

Bakersfield here.

My screen name was created when I registered here last year because I was off duty awaiting a back surgery. Well, it holds true again because I'm awaiting another back surgery. So since 2007 I've been "offdutyalot" from CDC because of: Foot injury from work resulting in injury, a quick battle with Leukemia, back surgery, gallbladder removal surgery, and now another back surgery..........but, I have alot of time to be more involved at church, shoot, now reloading, hanging with my kids, and much of the things I didn't have time to do when I had to work. Hopefully this will be a successful surgery and I will be back at work so I can make some extra money for more guns.

Hey there, I'm located in Hanford. Just started shooting this year. I'm 21 years young, have a Ruger 10/22 and just bought a Sig Sauer P2022. I have been shooting at the Fresno Pistol and Rifle Club, but I'm thinking about signing up for the Lemoore Sportsmen Club.

Bakersfield here. I'm a Brit and am here on a working visa so have just completed my Hunter's Ed course so I can get a hunters license and be legally allowed to touch a weapon!!! Primarily looking to do some range shooting and got my eye on a .22 long and then hoping to move on to an AR-15.
I'm a process engineer working near to Lost Hills but have a background in industrial instrumentation and control equipment as well as a 3 year stint in pretty much everything IT based.
Other than getting into shooting, i'm a computer geek and online gamer.
Let me know if I can help with anything ^_^

Scott in Tehachapi. The wife and I have been wanting to shoot for awhile now and we finally took the plunge and purchased our first firearms. Very much noobs but looking forward to learning and practicing! I've shot rifles various times, but handguns are new to me. Picked up a Beretta PX4 full size for myself and 10/22 for Appleseed. Wife went for the Glock 19. Looking forward to range time!

Edit: Forgot to add I'm a systems engineer and work with the Internet and computers/servers professionally.

Hey everybody. Name's Wes, I'm in Fresno. I just recently became a gun owner. Picked up a M&P 9mm. Looking to add to the collection.

I don't have any special skills other than I've been playing guitar for 14 years or so.

The wife and I both have memberships to The Range here in Fresno so I'm sure I'll see some of you there.

Happy hunting!

I was born in Fresno and recently came back for the first time in 36 years!

My last residence was in a completely free state and unfortunately, I had to leave a lot of items back there. I started shooting when I was probably around the age of six or so on the grandparent's ranch in Reedley. I purchased my first pistol the day I turned 21 (HK P7M13) that I still have today. I enjoy and reload for .308, .223, .204, 9mm and 10mm. I used to shoot USPSA Production class (Glock 34) but am not very good.

Other than that, I enjoy fly fishing (trout/steelhead) and tying flies, hunting (upland game, waterfowl and varmints), sailing (RC and Hobie's), and gaining weight. I really don't excel in one area in particular. . .I'm really pretty much average.

It seems that many here are into aviation and helicopters. I'm a retired Naval Aviator.

^^ Thanks for your service.

I'm a Cal Poly grad living in downtown Fresno. Which is usually better than it sounds. I work for a manufacturer of fluid power and fluid control products which is based out of MI and NJ respectively.

I average about 30k-35k miles a year on the road, plus many more aboard commercial airlines. When I'm home, I shoot as often as I can. I've never been hunting but I'm willing to bet that I'd pick it up pretty quickly which is good because the only time I'll probably ever do it is in a survival situation.

I've worked on mechanical stuff since I was a kid, I'm usually pretty good at fixing things. I've got a nice little arsenal going, and I'm always looking to add more.

Going to the Visalia Sportsmans Association range with EmmanualM (post 215) this saturday, hopefully we can see a few of you out there. I'll have my Mosin Sniper with me.

Located in Los Banos (Merced County) but originally from the Bay Area and travel there (and Modesto [Stanislaus County] often).

New to this site, want to become more involved... I have found a passion! I am hoping that the litigation with my county gets resolved such that I can apply for my CCW without fear of instant rejection. But, for now, I am simply doing all I can to learn!
