Turbinator, I'm in Kern County. We've got a firing range nearby, open on Saturdays, but I've heard that some ranges won't allow ARs, even if you tell them you have a "legal" one. Once I get mine, we'll see. The nearest gun store is in Bakersfield. What am I looking at? Over $500 probably, right? Unless I build it myself?

Default Hello...

I've been lurking for a while and finally got around to registering.

This site is wealth of information and I plan on visting here often as I have recently contracted a severe case of blackrifle-itis
and need to keep working on a cure.

I just won a CA-legal lower on GunBroker and am looking forward to assembling and configuring my own personal AR

Regards

Rex

Hello everyone,

Just found this site. My wife and I just recently purchased our first guns: A Kahr manufactured Auto-Ordnance 1911 for myself (from what I have seen online the quality is much improved from before, with the exception of the front site getting loose on some), and my wife found a nice XD-45 tactical. I have always been a firearms enthusiast and finally decided to start my collection.

We pickup our new guns on Tuesday, and if I can find some ammo by then we will probably be found Wednesday night at the OC Indoor Shooting range in Brea. We live in Chino Hills, so Brea is pretty close, and the couple of times we rented at the Brea range we were really impressed with friendliness of the people who work there.

I already am thinking about my next purchases. I really want a Mosin-Nagant, and with them being fairly cheap..... Interestingly enough right now it seems easier to find the 7.62x54r ammo than .45 ACP... Outside of that I want to aquire a Makarov and a Sig 226 in 357 SIG, and then a good number of impulse buys.

-Sean

Hello all,

I may have made a few posts before posting here, whoops.

Anyway, my name is Kevin McCluskey. My username 'Plisk' comes from Snake Plissken minus the 2nd 's', if anyone is familiar with him.

I recently turned 18, and I'm a Socal boy (whoop-e....) and am in the market for building my M4. I've got some ideas and I'm sure I'll have a thread up about it soon. But first things first, M4s cost money, living costs money... I'm sure I don't need to explain that to you everyone You've all been living it longer than I've been living. So in lou of that, you should find a thread of mine in the job section here.

Anyway, I've been lurking around this site for a while; and I'm very impressed. This is one of those somewhat hidden gems that for some reason no one ever told you about. I love the site, and I'm sure it will be a daily stop for me for a long time to come. It's also a late-night drone for me as well; it's past 4am as I write this! I really need to get some sleep.

Hope to meet more of you on the site in the morning. G'night!


-Kevin

Hello Rex, Sean, Kevin -- I'm new here myself. Looks like a very informative site. Found it via survivalistboards.com, another good site. Kevin, wake up...

Bill, just waking up... geez, hate this daylight savings time -- the extra hour of sunlight always burns my grass...

Look forward to meeting some of you when I move back later this month.

Hello,

I'm new here aswell. I'm 25 from Southern California (Fontana, CA). I just purchased my first firearm last sunday at the Glendale Gun show. Picked up a Glock 23 from Ammo Bros. I should have it by the 19th of this month. I bought it primarily for home defense. Before this i use to shoot with my dad with his Ruger 10/22 and his 9mm Smith and Wesson. Aside from firearms I've been airsofting for about 5-6 years. I love the photography, the outdoors, my 2 pitbulls, motorcycles, and cars. I hope to gain more knowledge and more firearms through this site.

Hey there,
I recently joined the forum, though I've been lurking for awhile. I'm just getting started on my gun collection -- have a Sig P226R in 9mm and a Desert Eagle in 44 mag -- and am in the middle of building up an OLL. Looking forward to experiencing the Calguns community.

Here goes my first post to Calguns.
My name is Allan. My wife and I own Armed and Safe fire arms training.
I met the Calguns people at the Cow Palace gun show Feb 28th 09. God bless em. My wife and I had a small booth just a few table down from them. We are Utah instructors from Reno NV. Our goal is to grow the gun base in CA. We are working with several CA CCW instgructors to teach the Utah CCW class in their areas. These are instructors who have not yet got their Utah instructor licens yet, or just simply don't want to. our next class will be with R&D in Napa. April 5th. We are looking to set up classes with CA instructors to teach the Utah class for their students.
Like I said, we want to expand the gun base in CA. To this end I salute the work of Calguns. I will be at the Reno Tea Party on April 15th. Sponsored by the Nevada Republican Assembly. Find a Tea party in your area by googleing Tea Party. And make a stand for freedom.
Allan <><

Thanks to all for the website content.

I had a good time meeting a few Calgunners at the Cow Palace show a couple weeks ago. Bought a CG hat to help with support even before registering. Now here to say hello and thank Vic, I think, and Wildhawker Brandon for the warm welcome.

Enjoy history of the 20th century. Semi-auto, pump shotguns and milsurp bolt action.

Hope I'll be able to add info as well as share experiences, but first
I'm reading up on posts, it's well worth it.

Good evening folks.
Been having guns here in PRK for a few years already.
Finally got around to signing on here.
I like old German Lugers and Broomhandles as well as more modern Walthers.
My primary defense piece is a Springfield M1911-A1 .45.
A couple of P99s, a P5, and PPK/S round out our family defensive arsenal.
