Hello DonnaBrazillee, there is a lot of info here about the AR platform, laws and 2nd Ammendment issues. Have fun.

Thought I would introduce myself. I live in Murrieta, CA. I am a martial arts instructor, NRA Certified Instrutor, and I also am a Utah CCW Instructor.
I have been reading the BBS for awhile, just thought I would say hi.

Hey y'all! I'm a relatively recent transplant to the Bay Area from the Midwest (born and raised in MI). I've always thought the shooting sports were fascinating, starting from my time in the Boy Scouts (props to the NRA for providing support on that) and I've always supported the 2nd Amendment. Now that I'm out of my parents house (Mom hates firearms) - I'm looking to get into shooting.

I signed up for an NRA Basic Pistol Course over at the Sunnyvale Rod And Gun Club that I'm definitely looking forward to. I hope to glean valuable knowledge from the experienced users on here.

Hi there, I've been lurking for nearly 2 years. I've already made a couple of posts so I figured I'd better introduce myself.

I live in SoCal in the Antelope Valley. I work aerospace and offroad as a hobby. I was active/reserve Marine Corps late 80's, early 90's and did some time during Iraq 1.0. I have a Glock 19, SW 686, & Enfield 303. I'm researching to build an AR-15. Not exactly sure what I want, most likely a carbine built as light as possible in a 6.8.

Thanks for a great site!!!

Hi everybody,
I just found the site and am impressed with how much information is available.

I have been shooting (handguns and shotguns) for 7 years now and have just started researching my first CA legal AR build. I will be starting in about 10 days when I receive my OLL and decide on which LPK I will use.

Love the site and can't wait to get started.

Rob

hey everyone, im new i been coming on here for the last few weeks reading on a few things so i thought i would join as i like what i see (for the most part). i might be young (22) but i was first introduced to firearms at the age of five and when i was able to acutly hold one up and fire it my father and i went to sacramento vally range almost every week. my teen years i kinda fell away from the range as school and other things kept me from it, but now as im buying a house in elk grove and probably will be comeing into my fathers mass colection of fire arms i will definatly be seeing the range allot more. anyone recomend one close to elk grove? sacramento vally range is kind of far of a drive. i know of the gun room but i hear some good and bad about it from some cal gunners and other people i just talk with in weapon shops. never been there myself though been meaning to see this horrid place myself. also anyone know of places who like to buy used amd not used but older fire arms? i am probably coming into a large collection and i can not afforde nor have the space for the mass of safes needed to hold them all. thanks again to all of you. and thanks to who ever is keeping this place going, i think i found a new home here.

Hi,

I'm 33, live in Simi Valley, CA. I read a lot, post very little.

I have:

A wife & 3 kids. Also,

AR-15, Mossberg Breacher, g23, m&p shield 9mm, sig232 .380...

I like the outdoors, and I like to train a lot. If your first question is "Train for what?" My answer is this: "I train for war. What do YOU train for?"

Hi !

I am 28 and I am from Switzerland.

I am a shooter and a gun collector and own approx 30 guns. this goes from 1847 Colt walker replica to a DoD Stamped Colt M4 (M16A1 lower) , and of course my Swiss issued SiG550.

I started collecting western era replicas (Uberti's 1866s, 1873s, henry, Quigley Sharps, SAA) but I ended up collecting whatever throw lead at a significant speed

My last buy is that M4, and since it is my second, I will now transform my 1st one (XR-15 M4 SDI, semi only) into a mk18mod0 replica.

I was introduced to this forum by a member, on AR15.com , and also heard about it on THR.

I'm sure I'll find many interesting things to read in here.

^regards,

Default Hello

I joined the site today. Lots of interesting information. I grew up in California and was raised to respect guns, but not be afraid of them. I've been told I'm a good target shooter, but really I just do target shooting occasionally and my youngest daughter is now expressing an interest in guns. I look forward to passing onto her what I know about gun safety and a healthy respect for gun ownership.

- Rick

Default Hello nice to meet you all

I have recently started shooting guns, which was much easier to get into than in my native Holland! Got this site recommended from a colleague, who's name here I don't know. Enjoy a lot of the reads on this forum! Got my mind set on my first gun, which is likely to be a p226 I am sure I will let you all know what it turns out to be...

Hey there everyone. First a little about myself. I'm a 20 year old college student from the San Fernando Valley. I got into guns because of my dad and have started studying all I can about them and collecting old surplus military rifles. I found this website while searching for info on owning an SKS in California. I'm looking forward to learning much more.

Default Hi everyone

Hi,

New guy here. I've actually been surfing this site for some time now...just got caught up reading all the threads before I could even introduce myself. Nice site...lots of info. A little history of myself...at least firearms wise...My first rifle was a Ruger 10\22 from my pops. My cousins introduced me to the black rifle and gave me an intro on what needed to be done to make it legal. Found this website and fed off all the info you guys provide. Thanks! So I acquired me a LCW-15 and built my 2nd rifle...an AR-15. Took me a year to acquire all the parts because I collected bottles and cans to save money for this build! Don't worry, I didn't have to dig through dumpsters...I had a lot of daily donations from work and the apt. complex I used to live at. 3rd firearm was a Beretta 21A I got on consignment just 3 weeks ago...pristine condition in box w/ manual, never been fired...$175. Now...I'm trying to go through the hoops in acquiring an AR pistol. Thanks everyone....and Help!

Been lurking for quite a while now and finally joined a little over a week ago; figured it was about time I got sociable and introduced myself...

I've been shooting since I was very young, although in deference to my wife I took a long break after my kids were born. They're shooting now, and have shot .22s rifles, 12ga shotguns and .50 muzzle loaders over the last few years. Lately I've been teaching them how to use handguns.

I'm definitely a no-frills guy as far as guns go; I like simple paired with enough range time to maintain my marksmanship/skill (to the extent I can call them that). For years my primary handgun was a S&W Model 19 Combat Magnum (.357, 6" barrel), which was replaced by a Glock 17 ~14-15 years ago. I still own the S&W, just don't shoot it as much anymore. I've also owned a Mossberg 146B .22 rifle for most of my life and will be adding a new Big5 Mossberg 500A shotgun combo later this week.

Look forward to seeing you on the boards.

Default New from Hesperia, Ca

Hello All - just wanted to check in as I've been browsing the site for a week or so now, and just got approved to post. Just a fellow gun owner and gun lover from Southern California.

Stopped by the gun show last weekend in Ontario. Picked up a couple of CMMG stripped lowers from my buddy Adam over at Cold War Shooters. It will be my second AR-15 build once I decide exactly the kind of AR-15 I want. I also own:
Ruger 10/22
XD40 Service Model
Sig P239 40 S&W
AR-15 (Doublestar lower, Del-ton Upper)
Remington 870

Hope to see you all around.
