Although I joined this site nearly 2 years ago, this is my first post ever. I got hooked into firearms about 4 years ago. My first pistol I got is a Springfield XD 40. Then I got a great deal on building my AR-15. I was then gifted a Remington 597 .22lr, it's fun but the mag causes the rifle to jam a lot. I then bought my fav gun, the Colt 1911 70 series. And I recently bought a Savage 111 in 30-06 and is almost sighted perfectly. I'm looking to expand my Colt handgun collection which is one of the main reasons as to why I joined this site. I look forward to socializing with everyone.

Welcome from the East Bay. You shoot at the Richmond Range or Chabot? I used to live in the EB as well. Glad you count make it.

Believe me I know, I love shooting Colts even though they are few and far between. But I really love the way they look, and what they offer. I'm trying to get my hands on a Python and an Anaconda right now.

If I take the rifles I go to Chabot, otherwise I go to the range in San Leandro on Davis St. next to the city dumps. And sometimes I go to Milpitas when I wanna rent a gun.

Welcome to Calguns. I understand the 597's can be problematic but having a .22 in the collection is always a good thing. Don't overlook adding a Ruger 10/22 or a Marlin model 60 or 795 if the opportunity presents itself.
