Good afternoon. I'm an FN 5.7x28mm owner in the East Bay. I've known about CalGuns for some time now, but this is the first time I'm posting here. I try to make it to the open-carry events so if you see a guy sporting a blackhawk serpa for the FN, that's me.

Cheers.

Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. I am currently in the Navy. I have been doing it for the past 7 years. I just bought my first gun. A basic Glock 17. I am looking into buying a Mossberg 590A1 for my second gun. I have been doing a lot of reading on this site. Thanks for the great place to learn.

Greetings Calgunners! I'm somewhat new to shooting (plinked a bit as a kid, but just got back into it a few months ago). I've got a Taurus .38 and will be riding an S&W 686+ after Tuesday (the anticipation feels like Christmas in August!). Just want to share my enthusiasm for a great sport that is fulfilling in so many ways. The people seem great too!

Hey there. Started shooting a couple months ago (only been to the range twice due to budget constraints). Been a firearm enthusiast since I was 12 or so. I've got some leftist politics, some right, but unilateralism and political parties can eat it in my opinion. Living with my folks, in between high school and college (starting in Winter). We've got a Charter Arms .38 Snub-nose, a Firestar M43, and a Norinco (yeah, I know) 1911. Once I get a job I'm thinking of picking up a Mossberg 500.
Also a huge William Gibson and general Cyberpunk fan.

Hey Gunhead -- No shame in being a little left of center. I tend that way myself...there are a few of us non-right-wingers out there.

thats awesome that you just bought your first gun...bought mine (mossy 500 all tactical out) about 5 months ago...its become an awesome hobby of mine...either my mossy or my glock 27 are stock...i love upgrading them and i pick my s&w m&p15 sport(cheapest ar 15 that is california compliant out the door for 750) on th 16AUG and i already bought all the parts from the picitinny(spelling) rail to the magput collapsable all in od green of couse....and i have plenty 30 round mags(6 actually) which are a felony for me to use apperently but i can legal possess in my home, supposedly, cause im non resident military from a state where they are legal so i went and bought 10 rnd spacers for all of them...so i get the look of the 30 rnd mag and only paid a total of 40 bucks to convert them. thats way cheaper than buyin feakin 6 30 dollar 10/30 pmags from the internet or a gunshop which would cost me even more...i also found a bullet button ring that i got for free after buying a bunch of ammo of this website that goes on the middle finger....obviously by now u have relized im so excited to pick it up at the shop and shoot it and customize that i look for any reason to talk about....my wife is sick of hearing it....she always tells me if you talk about guns one more time ima shoot you with own gun!lol

politicians can not be trusted period...its like listening to a compulsive liar....mostly crap and very little truth....gun laws are getting stricter(VERY BAD)...marijana laws are getting looser(i like the idea of legal pot although i dont smoke it myself but i know some stoners feel alot safer with them behind the wheel or holding a gun the some wasted ******* stumbling outta the bar) dont get me wrong im a drinker but outside of moving my shotgun to couch where i sit when i get home incase i gotta use it i dont mess with it cause people get stupid when theyre drunk....wow now im debating with myself...see i think by pot being legal its giving permission to smoke and drive(and its def not a safe alternative) but it is definantly safer se as how my stoner buddy always drive the speed limit and are 10 and 2 not swerving or nothing. your not a better driver under the influence of anything but being high on weed i think make drivers be more careful cause they dont wanna get charged with DWI...but back to driving stoned people never have DD when drinking....llets face it its hard to get one....but if someone goes to the bar and gets stoned all night after a long night of smoking weed they will be sober within an hour or hour and a half....so all they got to do is quit smoking at 12....they usually start getting bunt out by then anyway....so thats my left wing side....but my right wing side is all about american religous values and the fact our country was originally fought by individual gun owners....and godamn it i aint that religous but the day they take god outta the pledge of allegence is day i move to switzerland cause at least there are very few gun restrictions there...and guess what! they love thier freedom...individual gun owners helped to keep nazis outta there and kept the independent during WWII! armed nations stay independent...unfortunately the people in charge know were not happy with the way this country is ran so they use every chance they get to make gun laws stricter

Default New to CalGuns, and shooting in general

Hello CalGunners,

I am relatively new to the shooting world and although I have never fired a shotgun, I'm thinking about buying a shotgun.

I'd be really appreciative if somebody would help me out with a few questions about shotguns, especially 1) how a beginner can gain proficiency AND 2) how to buy a good beginner's shotgun that fits.

I'm in the Sacramento/Woodland/Davis area and would also be very interested in some quality shooting ranges.
Thank you so much.

Matt

Default Hello all you "WesterYankees" LOL

HI all. This Louisiana Boy grew up in the forest and bottomland. I've been hunting/shooting, collecting, and eventually even started modifying firearms starting 35 years ago. My wife and daughters all shoot as well. No grandkid shooters yet, but I'm sure it won't be long. I see some folks post their collection list. I don't think I have time or space for that much typing. hahaha
Anyway, I'm a little lost on how to do all this posting stuff, but feel I should try. The guys I know who know more about guns than me,... anybody else here have friends who build their own rifles entirely from scratch except the receiver?... These guys make me feel ignorant about firearms sometimes they are so knowledgeable, but not one of them would ever use a computer to talk to the new generation about it. "you wanna talk? Come over to the shop and talk..." So I guess I'm trying to drag them along with me by proxy.

I know that 35 years old thing is a joke, but where I live, it's normal for boys between 4-5 years to start hunting. Funny, how most of them shoot insta-kill spine or brain shots as the norm by the time they're 18. Start THOSE KIDS EARLY!!!!!!!

Check the shotgun forum. The only guy running a shotgun clinic at the moment is POWG. His listing is there.

Default New guys from Santa Cruz county..

Hey all..

Checking in from Aptos (SC County).

Grew up back East in a super restrictive gun control state (NJ). Went to college in Maryland where I really got into shooting. At the time, fairly lenient gun laws... Private party sales OK, NO registration or dealer involvement necessary. Walk in to a gun shop, pay and walk out with any long gun..

Had quite a collection (which I stupidly sold before moving out here) and shot weekly for my 4 years down there.

Have been out here for 20 years now. Love living here, but I can't believe I ended up in another brutal gun control state... and SC County to top it off.

Still owned guns since I have moved here but haven't done a whole lot of shooting. Hit up the range here and there to keep proficient with my home SD weapon, but that's about it. Unfortunately just really don't know anyone who is into firearms/shooting.

Recently got back into it all, with of all things, an air rifle. I found out by chance that I am allowed to shoot air rifles on my property (unincorporated SC County). SO I picked up a Benjamin .22 cal Nitro Piston break barrel. Been having a blast with the little target range I made. Shockingly hard hitting gun. Not the air rifles I shot when I was a kid..

Anyway, I have a Springfield Armory XD9, Beretta 21A 22LR and a Ruger 10/22 (besides a couple other airguns). About to convert the 10/22 with a Tapco Intrafuse stock for some fun, low cost "tactical" style shooting. In the process of getting my hunting license and picking up a new bolt action. Most likely a 270 Win..

Anyway, hi to all. If anyone in the SC area wants to go shoot hit me up. Shooting alone gets old..

Greetings to All,

A friend told me about this place and all the great people I would meet here. I hope to make some friends, and pick up some great info along the way.

My Father gave me my first gun, a Winchester 410, when I was about 6 years old. He also taught me how to Hunt and Fish. Even though he is no longer with me, he's still my Hunting and Fishing Buddy and Best Friend...and always will be.
He taught me a great way of life, but I don't think he knew just what an enthusiast he was creating. I've sent more lead down range than I can remember!

I'm currently stuck in "Kalifornia, The Peoples Republic of", but am working hard on making my escape to a "Free State"...lol
I operate a Cutlery Business, and hope to get my FFL after I leave here.

Well, I've rambled on long enough for now.

My best to all!

Hello Calgunners.
I'm new to the site.
I've gone shooting a handful of times.
But i am somewhat of newbie when it comes to learning about guns.
And also learning about prices, brands, and different type of ammo.

Right now i'm in the market for my first handgun and rifle.
I hope to learn a thing or two from this site and i'm looking forward to chatting with some of you.

Hey there,

Born in O.C. raised in I.E. and looking forward to the vast amount of support and info this forum offers. Will contribute if and when I have the extra funds.

California gives us plenty of hoops, but we can't let them keep us from jumping through them.

God Bless.

Greetings all,

New member here. Been a hobby shooter for decades - but never owned myself. Time is coming soon to change that! Hoping to learn a lot here - and enjoy the journey in the process.

Best,

akute

Hello to all!

New member here from San Diego. I'm not that new to firearms as I have served as a Navy Corpsman(8404) for 10 years and 4 of those years with the Marines. I've finally bought my first firearm a few months ago which was a Sig P229R and recently purchased an AR-15. Looking forward to learn as much as I can while I'm here and hopefully contribute to the community as well.

Thanks,
Jerome

Howdy, howdy, howdy,

New to the site, long time gun owner and Central Valley activist. I've successfully convinced my wife that guns breed in dark enclosed steel spaces thus explaining why more and more keep showing up at our home.
