Greetings. My name's Chris. Nice place you have here.

I've plinked (city boy - I'm a camper but not yet a hunter) a few times since the 1970's using friend's guns, but only just purchased my own firearms beginning last spring. I patronize the corner gun store, Martin B. Retting in Culver City, where I've purchased a CZ 527 Carbine chambered in 7.62 X 39. I also found a very clean, little used S&W Model 3000; a beautiful 12 ga pump shotgun (a clone of the 870) made by Howa. Additional barrels for it are difficult to locate. The factory-equipped barrel is a 30" full choke and is great for birdshot and clays, but I also wanted to shoot buckshot and then have a slug barrel and a short barrel.

So I "needed", see, that clean, used Wingmaster (28" barrel, integrated modified choke) that had just landed in the used rack and then I bought two additional barrels for it online; a 24" rifled slug barrel and an 18.5" security barrel. Both barrels are manufactured by Mossberg as 870 Replacement Barrels, made in Mexico using U.S. steel. I've not yet shot the rifled barrel because I'm unsure of the exact type of slug rounds that barrel requires. I have shot Winchester rilfed slugs through the security barrel, and, yeehaww! they hit hard. I shoot the carbine and both pump shotguns out at Angeles Shooting Ranges in Tujunga Cyn.



Glad to have found Calguns.net. Mark over at Retting suggested you folks.
Thanks for being here!

Hello from SoCal! Nice forum! I have been finding links to this forum with every firearms related search I do on Google, and I have learned quite a bit as a result. Seems like a nice place to hang out and share ideas. I have been interested in firearms and shooting sports since I first learned how to properly handle firearms with my uncles 25 years ago. Nice to be here! Thanks!

Smile GTF (Gun tot'n Fisherman)

I am a new member and not from CA, but does that eliminate me from using Calgun? I grew up in SD, hunting and fishing, own many guns from an AR-15 to .22 pistols. I am a commercial salmon and tuna fisherman, fishing in CA, WA, and OR. My home port is Newport OR ,http://twofishersgourmetseafood.com/ and I am getting ready to retire to Pahrump, NV. I have a Family Diamond membership in FrontSight and am looking forward to getting more gun training after I move this fall. I am a retired 34 year Navy Master Chief Petty Officer now living in SeaTac Washington. I was the Mayor one term and the Deputy Mayor two terms, but lost the election this year and can’t wait to get out of town and enjoy my retirement. The liberals and progressives put me out of politics by hiring the “occupy group” to doorbell against me. They are also after our guns folks and that is why I have been an NRA member for over 40 years. Actually I paid for NRA life member today. I am also a life member for VFW.

Default Just Joined the Forum...What a Great Site!

I just joined the forum, and I am really impressed by it. I used to shoot recreationally with a handgun and just got my first ever two rifles before the stupid CA ban. Then my kids were born about a month after and I did not shoot at all until now since my kids are older now. Once I get back into it, I plan to expose them to responsible ownership and let them make up their own minds.

Well, I look forward to being part of the forum.

Cheers!

YMAN (aka Scott)

Default Thanks Calguns

Hello All, I have looked around here a bunch and now had to join due to the lawsuit just filed. I have always asked gun shop owners why I need to wait 10 days each time. I was always told it was a way for the state to make money. So thanks and I hope Calguns wins !!!

About me... Moved to Cali with the Navy a bunch of years ago. Raising a family in San Diego now. I used to shoot a bunch as a kid and now am getting back in to the sport. Looking to attend an Appleseed event in March. Thanks to the many people here answering questions.

Post New from Sacramento

Just wanted to say hi to all members & I'm new to Calguns. I don't currently own a weapon (gun), but am looking to purchase my 1st (of several possibly).
I served 8 years in the US Army, with my last 4 under the Special Ops umbrella, and am now back home in CA.
So I'm very familiar with several different weapon systems, but I'm slowly learning the CA weapons laws & of all the bans & restrictions.
I'm just looking to really enjoy the weapon I personally buy, without feeling like I had to settle because of our state laws.

thanks in advance for any comments, questions or suggestions.

Hi All,
Been hanging in the shadows - reading and learning. Great site, lots of great information and discussions. I live in northern Cali. - Sonoma County. I presently own 2 Handguns - a 1991A1 Colt and a S&W Model 500 Revolver. I am working towards rounding out my beginning collection with an AR type rifle. Not really looking to put one together from parts but am looking at buying it complete up front - in spite of the kooky California restrictions I am looking at 3 model choices - The Colt M4, the Sig 516 Patrol or 716 Patrol or the FNH Scar 16S or 17S.
So I am new to the Rifle scene but have already gained alot of insight from the members of this forum.
Might as well ask if anybody has a favorite dealer in the Sonoma county area who might stock these models - From what I have learned they are being made as California Compliant with the dumbed down features.
Any insights to these choices are more than welcome.
Thanks for all the posts and discussions.

Hi all

I hope you're enjoying your Holidays and getting ready for a wonderful New Year's Eve celebration. I just wanted to say HI and say that I'm looking forward to learning and participating in this forum. I just got my first firearm as a gift from my wife - H&K USP 9 and I'm looking into getting a rimfire rifle next (soon) for plinking.

Stay safe and enjoy the celebrations!

Hello all,

Found this site from a link on mods to make a 10/22 more user friendly. I've had mine since 1964, still works great. Looking forward to learning more about the 10/22 and other things here. Good shooting to all.

Hello all,
Just thought I would drop a line and introduce myself. I grew up shooting and hunting in south GA, but haven't been hunting in 12 years. I get my new Savage 7mm Rem Mag this saturday. I never thought 10 days could take so long or suck so bad. I have a 20ga pump and a 30-06 at my dads in GA, but needed something out here. Can't wait to get in some deer and hog hunting....

Matt
ROLL TIDE!!

Greetings Calgunners! I am joining especially to learn about local shotgun learning opportunities. Especially skeet, but it seems I have fun every time I make one go bang and then smell the smoke curling out of the breech. Wish I'd never picked one up, but now I'm hooked, so I expect I'll spend most of my time on the Shotgunning side of Calguns. Been very pleased so far to meet a lot of very warm and welcoming people, thanks for that!

Hello, another new guy here. What a great site! I've been lurking for a little while and finally decided to join.
I've been shooting a variety of guns for over 30 years now.

Ok time to get off the computer and go put some rounds down range.

Thanks, Jamie

Exclamation New guy!

Hi Calguns!

New to the forum and new to shooting as well. Have shot some rifles and pistol but never owned. Just recently got my HSC and am looking to purchase a semi auto pistol in the near future. Looking at either .40 or .45 caliber for my first gun, however I intend on shooting everything in between to see what suits me best. Have been reading some rave reviews on the SA XD series and am looking forward to firing some rounds through one.

Looking forward to sifting through the forums for any valuable info on the many topics posted...

Default New to forum, returning to gun upbringing

Hi All,
New to the forum and the SF Peninsula - Redwood City area. I was raised in Norcal and learned to shot my grandpa's .22 when I was 5 and a variety of guns on through my teens. Haven't shot in a loooong time, but now I'm married with kids and need to pass along my heritage. Down the road would like to get into reloading, at least for my shotgun.

Hoping to cover a basic pistol safety class with the wife in a few months, and start the kids in a few years.

Would like to connect with other enthusiasts in the RWC area - especially if you have a shooting spouse.

I work in the tech sector and have experience in web development, ecommerce, and leading programmers. Also grew up in the trades, so I can swing a hammer and sweat copper too!

Hello from the latest FNG. Have been directed here so many times in the past from Google while searching for information I figured it was about time I join. I live in the Temecula area and enjoy shooting as a hobby, one carried over from previous career.

My home Armory includes a Springfield - TRP Operator 1911 (New as of Saturday), S&W MP15X, and a Walther .40 P99QA. For a project rifle I am looking to purchase & build-up a Springfield M1A over the next year.

Have a good 1
