Talking Pre-newbie entrance

Hey, I am the new guy...(insert laughs and jeers)..ok, thats out of the way. I am new to owning a gun and have been attempting to make them since I was 3...out of wood, which Is why I grew up to be a carpenter. I just "discovered" the exhilaration of shooting. You know, pulling the trigger, feeling the blast of the gunpowder, destroying a little rubber troll your mother gave you for christmas when you were six instead of what you really wanted (laser tag), and you kept it anyway because it was a gift that never got played with and ended up lasting a lot longer than you thought because it got stuck in storage..and you discoverd it while looking for targets on the day you purchased your first real gun (twelve gauge, coach shotgun). Now that we are all on the same page, my second gun is an all american GSG 5 (well maybe not ALL american). I hear that all you guys just love them!(Sarcasm) I have played airsoft since my dad bought me a bb gun when I was twelve (back then we used metal instead of plastic bbs). My first plastic shooter was an MP5 look-a-like, hence the purchase of GSG 5. Ok, enough..I also own an RRA lower-soon to be rifle. So Hello, and thanx for reading.

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.

There was some calgunners thre, including me. Stick around.

Just a quick intro. Moved here a few months ago after getting married, been reading up on some of the pure idiocy spewed out as "gun laws" here in CA, and went looking for a place that pretty much gathered everything together in a somewhat easy way to understand. Only took me about a week or two of mostly very lazy searching to happen upon calguns.net, but now that I have, I'm quite happy. Still have TONS of questions, but I do tend to search before asking. Just need to win a lottery or something so I can actually get everything I want.

New guy here, I have always been a levergun and revolver shooter, but with the strong chance of another federal ban I plan on building an O.L.L. AR and picking up a saiga. I will be the one with all the stupid questions so please be kind...

Hello all. I am a socal area resident, and recently began my first OLL "build" upon researching and finding that such things are indeed legal.

I am a fed. LEO, and have been busy "educating"my LEO coworkers and friends. I know that I had no knowledge of the "legality" of OLL's until I saw one in a shop while purchasing another item, and then found CALGUNS.NET and researched some more.

I don't have any experience in "building" beyond basic stuff for pistol and shotgun upkeep. Hope to to find answers to questions I have here on the site.

I lurked for awhile, and must say that the site has been very helpful. Thanks.

Another New guy.

Hi everyone. A guy named barry (don't know his s/n) told me about this place when I met him at Oak Tree Gun Club in newhall, ca.... Been surfing around here for the past few hours in absolute awe of some of firearms and photography skill!.

I have a few Shotguns and Rifles but now am looking to get into handguns. Been taking my fathers revolvers to the range but neither one feel like "Me"... one is a S&W .38 special and an old .22 Ruger revolver. Spending more time at the range im looking for one of my own.

Im a 26 and a Truck driver in the Motion picture industry. Been with my girl for 5 years who also enjoys going to the range and gonna grab her a Beretta Neo .22 6" (her favorite rental) soon.

Anyhow... just thought I would introduce myself.

JOe

Default Hi

Guess this is where I should have posted my first hello message. I've been a lurker for longer than I've been a member. I live in the Bay Area so, I hope to meet some of my fellow shooters at some of the local ranges here. I also drive a Land Cruiser, so I may already know some of you from my other hobbies. I don't have a great many firearms, but I am slowly increasing my collection. I have a TTR (Tactical Take Down Rifle) from HS Precision in 300WM, S&W 500 Magnum 8 3/4" revolver, Ruger Mk3, Benelli M1014 Shotgun with the now banned skeletonized stock, and several other various caliber semi-auto pistols.
I do all of my own reloading on my trusty RCBS rockchucker, but my boss recently gave me a Dillon RL450 that I will probably upgrade to a RL550 in the near future.

Well, thats about it, I hope to be able to contribute something to the forums. I've thoroughly enjoyed the time I've spent lurking and reading all the various posts here.

so, nice to meet you all.


jon.

Default Hello Calguns

Hello everyone,

My first post here on calguns. I have been a long-time shooter, starting at the ripe old age of ten years old, and I still enjoy a good day at the range. I own a variety of blackpowder rifles, bolt guns, pistols, and a few autoloaders. My newest purchase is an AR15 with Stag lowers and LMT uppers, which will hopefully arrive soon.

Which leads me to the question- has anyone else here dealt with LMT before? I ordered my uppers on Oct 30, and they still have not shipped. Is this wait normal, or should I give them a call?

Thanks in advance, and I'm excited to be a member of the forum!

Just signed on and figured I would say Hi. About a year or so into the scene, starting out with a Stag Arms Ar-15 2T, Glock 22, and 2 mossberg 500As. But hopefully purchasing a 1911 and maybe another rifle tommorow.

Hello all, just thought to say hi! I am a recently avid shooter, though have owned guns for years. I have competed, albeit poorly, in IDPA and do take a couple of training classes per year. My father is also a retired lifer in the Army, before going into civil service and a Viet Nam vet, a former hunter (too sick to hunt these days) and all my cousins are hunters and shooters of one sort of another. I'm transplanted from the mid-wes 'lo these last 20 years.

Hi everyone. I've been lurking this forum for a while now, so it's time I signed up to look for parts for my new Stag Arms 2HT. I live on the east bay (SF bay area). I also own a Remington 700 PSS .308 and a Sig P228. I hope to utilize and contribute to the wealth of knowledge this forum has to offer. Cya around!

Sup guys Gio here from the East Bay Area!!! I am a soon to be gun owner myself, my dad has several .22LR rifles and my grandpa's old military issue Colt 38. I am still somewhat new to guns in general so take it easy on me I recently purchased a Kimber Custom II 1911 .45 from a local gun shop and I am due to pick it up this Friday the 21st at 5PM w00t! I also ordered 2 Sun Devil lowers.

So yeah, besides guns I like cars of all types. I drive a nicely modded 2004 Subaru WRX STi. I also like my RC Cars as well, I have 2 Team Associated 1:10 scales cars. Well one is a truggy and the other is a tarmac racer turned drft car

I plan on building up my AR's with 16" kits, possibly using 4 Rail handguards, or just using the regular hand guards and then modding them as I get more into them. But for now at least I will have them before the ban if indeed AW's get banned here in Kommiefornia

Oh yeah thanks to Karleric for telling me to join up here, also I would like to say hi to DLouie87 as well, sup my STi buddies

-Gio

Red face NOOB !!!

Hey all,

Guess I should post a hello and knock off the lurker thing. HELLO !!

I'm a bud of Impactco on this board, and returnig to firearms as an obsession after many years. I own a few handguns and shotguns, but Impactco has infected me with a serious case of BRD !

Got an AK currently in DROS, and 2 AR OLL's in the pipe (builds TBD), plans for a couple C&Rs (MN M-44?, Garand ?)very soon, Sig or Glock 9mm, mini14 target, ......plans are easy to make.

Pic below of my new 10/22 "tacticool" build plinker.

No apology needed.

Got to fondle the new AK @ AmmoBros earlier today, and then had Chicken Kiev for dinner at home (appropriate, NIET?) What a marvel of Kalashnikov simplicity and purpose !

Tomorrow,... cup-o-noodles... (I need 500 rounds of non mag 7.62x39, stat !)
