Smile I Love Guns

Nice forum. I am alarmed by all the gun laws California has. I've always wanted a Thompson copy (semi-auto only) with a 50 round drum clip but I see California will not allow it. Holsters, some or all, cannot be shipped to California. Whose idea was this to enact these laws? Just because someone gets a fingernail blown off by a firecracker does not mean all people may no longer set off a few firecrackers. But in California, it does. OK. The only way to get the laws changed is to write the politicians. I've been raised around guns. I bought a SS SW 5 shot snubby and 50 cartridges around 5 years ago and I have not fired that pistol at all. It's just sitting in my gun case. Ho hum. I'm not an active shooter. But I am alarmed that any good citizen has less choice than the good citizens have had for the last 200 plus years.

Just joined after attending Turner's shooting fair in Corona. Had a great time, so did my twin boys (age 12) who had never shot anything before. They can now say they have shot the AR in 5.56 and .308, AK in both calibers,.22's, westerns six shooters and rifles. They still can't stop talking about it. looking forward to more happy shoting in the Rancho Cucamonga area. Best regards to all, Tankerdan.

Howdy!

Grew up in the San Fernando valley, now reside in Colorado. Still have a lot of family in SoCal with whom I visit.

Been curious about how things differ in Cali to other states.

New to the site. Was doing a Google on CCW information and your link to this website showed up. I've trap shot back in PA, but now would like to get into sidearms, and would like to learn the right way, by the right people.

I'm glad to be here and look forward in meeting some of you and getting to know how to be safe and sane.

Greeting all!

I'm coming to California next month for a training class, so I figured this would be a great place to learn about CA laws in relation to guns, magazines, etc.

Hey all!

Was recently referred to this site by a friend. Lurked around a bit and finally decided to sign up.

Currently getting back into shooting after a long hiatus and selling my rifles, I sure have missed going to the range with friends.

I purchased a Springfield XD .45cal I like it but that ammo is darn expensive so I'll be looking into something of a plinker....maybe a Sig p226 with the 22lr conversion kit.

Have a pleasant evening!

Thumbs up

Hello, and thank you calguns fora great site! I made my very first trip to the local range (Insight in Artesia) a couple weeks back with my brother in law to put in a couple hours with his Glock 19. Nice gun, but I am looking for a .357 magnum revolver, 4" barrel, as a first gun and for home defense -- funds are tight, of course, but I'm looking for used Ruger GP100's, Taurus', or Rossis, prefering the Ruger based on what I can gather from the folks on this site .

I've fired 22 LR's in the past, but the Glock was my first time with a handgun, and I did fairly well . Now I've got the itch to get better / more comfortable and overall just master the first one I pick up. I'm worried about the economy and have a wife and kid to protect... but it's also a fun of course (always will be safe & responsible!).

Anyway, thanks for this great resource and for any advise you can bestow upon me... or even point me in the direction of a good deal on a Ruger GP100 .

Thumbs up Another Newbie

another newbie???? Yuppers !
Been lurking and reading for about a week now. Interesting stuff.
Retired now and looking for a good pastime. Shot long ago (in my yute) and enjoyed it, but haven't touched a gun in over 20 years. Now just looking to see how (much) things have changed; rule wise. [ie: what you can have, where you can shoot, etc]
From what I've read so far, it looks like this is the right place to start.

oh, and yes I said 'yute' on purpose.

Hello from NC!
I've been a long time reader over here, but never took the plunge to join since I'm not in CA. But I may be moving within the next year or so so I figured I would lay down some rifle roots! I'm looking forward to being over here.

Thanks for having me!

Hey guys...I need some help! I've been viewing Calguns for years as an excellent reference tool. I joined to post a fundraising competition that my Rotary Club is putting on at Wes Thompson's range. It's posted as the 1st Annual Labor Day Shooting Competition at Wes Thompson's Range. This should be a great event and we're giving away four nice rifles as prizes. What do I need to do to get the word out? I've had zero comments to my threads posted under the 'Shoots' and 'Competition' forum. Please advise....this is a worthy fundraiser and will be a lot of fun!

Hey all. I've been shooting since I was a kid but I recently turned 21 and received a beautiful S&W .45 Long Colt for my birthday and have since bought a .22 LR for messing around with at the range. Might even bag some small game with it. Anyways, I stumbled across this site and it's awesome. I look forward to reading through all the great info here. Cheers!

Hi All,
My name is Kevin and I am in S. O.C. Got into guns last year and now understand why my uncle is into them. Mind you my uncle is only 5 yrs older than I. Anyway I am starting the process of building a .308 for which I picked up a "22 fluted barrel for at the last OC fairgrounds show. I am looking to sell my wasr 10 that is a year old to pay for the .308 build. Hopefully a guy at work comes through as a few others have flaked on me. I am also looking for sks parts minus the receiver for another build I have on the back burner. I saw the booth at the last show but was kind of shy about walking up as I don't know more about guns than I do so instead of looking like a 47 yr old dope I just kept on moving along!

Hello all. Just joined. Love the amount of info here...wish I'd found this site much earlier. East SF Bay resident, but I fly for Uncle Sam (ANG Enlisted C-130 Crewman), so I'm ALL over the place...ALL the time.

Seems like everytime I leave home, I come back to new and yet more cryptic laws, regs, and attitudes. Nice to see a CA specific forum I can peruse while on the road or OCONUS...so y'all can keep me informed on what ELSE ends up illegal (or proposed to be illegal) in my absence(s). :-/

I'm new to the site but I've used this site for all my CA gun questions and since I have used it more often I figured I'd join up and also have a friend on here. "Warning Bagpiper is Armed" she is getting a Saiga which I had a hand in by letting her shoot mine. So thanks you guys and girls for answering my questions and looking forward to some good posts.

Hi Guys,

New to posting, but have been lurking for awhile. I grew up with guns around the house, but only recently purchased my own - M&P .40 and Mossberg 930spx

I design, exhibit booths, furniture - just about anything. So, when I got to looking into building an AR, I was pretty excited to find this forum.

Please be gentle as I am sure I will be asking basic and redundant questions.

D.G.

Welcome lurkers!

Tons of info here.
Be sure to read the rules for the For Sale section before responding there.
It's a good idea to give your general location in your profile (upper right corner) since CA is such a big place.
You might find other CalGunners right in your area!

Greetings from the central mountains...I was born and raised in California, but just moved back here after living in Nevada for a while. I am interested in getting to know the California gun community a little better, and get caught up on all of the gun issues here that I have missed while living out of state. I have been shooting since I was 10 or so, but I know there is always room for improvment and hope to learn quite a few things during my time here.

I mostly lurk around here, and just thought I'd say, "Hello!" I appreciate the wealth of information here (mainly in the CCW subforum) due to the hard work of those responsible for making an effort towards CCW reform in CA. Your work is appreciated.
