Hello everyone! I am new to CalGuns, but I've been shooting shotguns and rifles since I was in the single digits. My husband actually introduced me to the site. I recently purchased my first hand gun after seeing first hand that Oakland sucks. (I work in the middle of the ghetto). I generally prefer to live, so I'm going to protect myself. Also, going to the shooting range is fun, and now I get to practice my skills with my own gun. If you shoot in Vacaville or Richmond, make way for the little blonde girl. That's me

Kestryl, this is not a reply, but a question. For a prospective "personal handgun importer" (per California State definition), what can one do with handguns which are not included on California's "roster of handguns certified for sale," other than surrender them to the state, e.g., sell them to the state? Can one retain them? [I am referring to handguns which are legal to purchase and possess in states other than California and possibly Massachusetts. I realize magazines must comply with California's magazine capacity restriction.] I cannot find an answer on the state website. Thank you.

Roster does not apply to guns you already own that you bring with you when you move into CA. Enjoy.

Hi everyone. New to posting on Calguns. I've lurked for a number of years, but didn't register until recently. I just purchased my second hand gun and my wife purchased her first. I'd like to get involved with an organization that supports freedom and personal liberties rather than takes them away so here I am. Hopefully I'll be able to get more involved and attend some of the events.

well hope to here some opinions about this or i'm sure i'll learn alot from this site.

Greetings everyone,

Thanks to DJ for sending me to this forum. I am a newbie and am currently trying to learn all the codes "bump, etc.". When I find a list I'll print them out and try to bring myself up to speed as quickly as possible. I realize since I'm new there is a hazing period so go ahead and start.

Hi,

Founds this site from a friend. Fulltime LEO trying to make it to retirement without getting shot, stabbed or killed. Live in Socal Kalifornia. Personal views are I hate the bullet button, Gangsters carry guns daily concealed why can't the average law-abiding citizen, and the Police are here to protect the sheep from the wolves. With that said I hope I can learn about others experiences and knowledge to help increase mine. Thanks.

Greetings All,

New to Calguns, but not new to shooting. Started shooting with my Dad at age 5, he was a competition shoooter and brought me up hunting. Got away from guns for the last 25 years to take up bowhunting in a big way, still bowhunting, but making time to shoot the guns. Happy to be back to gun shooting!!! My wife and I met shooting so it's a marriage that is perfect, except for the cost of ammo and new guns. She also took a break for bowhunting, but she is strictly a guns person today.

Very appreciative of what i have seen in the format and content of Calguns.

Default Hey All

Hey everybody, I'm a new member and I just wanted to introduce myself on here.

Veteran of the seal teams, been in the community since '99. Work as a civilian gs employee at naval special warfare center now. I have been absolutely confounded by the madness of what is/not legal in the messed up state of California as I sought about purchasing a rifle. This place was recommended by a co-worker so I dropped by to ask questions and figure this whole mess out with the rest of the 2nd amendment loving Americans.

Cheers.

Jack B.

Hello Everyone! I am a new member here and wanted to introduce myself. I have been shooting actively for several years but I have been interested in firearms to some extent most of my life. I have used Calguns for reference info in the past and felt it was high time I joined in. My friends nicknamed me "phantom" so hence the name.

Talking New to Calguns and to weapons in general

Hi Everyone,
I am a new (but pretty old) member in Sacramento. New to firearms in general, just bought a Ruger 1022lr.
Have to say, after finding Calguns and reading the information available in here, i know i have a lot to learn. BUT, this forum is an excellent starting point to guide new people such as me to responsible gun ownership.

Hi Everyone.

I just relocated from Connecticut to Los Angeles a few weeks ago. I knew the gun laws in this state were going to be bad, but wow, I did not realize quite how bad. I had my LTC back in CT and was accustomed to CCW on a daily basis. Now I live in a more dangerous city and am less able to protect myself. Its an unfortunate cost to live in such an otherwise beautiful place. I'm hoping to join in the fight to bring our second amendment rights to LA county and CA in general.

I just joined, I came across this site while looking for a set wildcat reload dies for 38/45. I bought this set-up for my 1911 about 30 yrs ago from Bo Clarke, of Armory Gunshop, Glendale, CA. I've had no luck on line. I'm now in the San Diego, North Co., area. Thanks

Default My first post

I just wanted to write a quick post to introduce myself. I have great memories as a high school student of going to the range with my dad. I worked my way through a few NRA programs, including reaching Marksman 1st class in pistol, Sharpshooter sixth bar in target rifle, and Distinguished Expert in sport rifle.

After a terrible episode with local PD an uncle turned me on to calguns. The forums promise to be a treasure chest of information. And I love to see there is a wiki. Anyway I am glad to see this community exists and I look forward to benefiting from its knowledge.

Hi all:

My name is Greg and I live in Forestville, in Sonoma County near the Russian River. I have a modest collection of air rifles that I shoot at my small home range. Fun and really really inexpensive: high quality .22 caliber pellets run me about $16 for 500! Good for us retired folks

Nice to meet ya. / Greg
