Hi folks - I am moving to CA from WA and going though my safe generally thinning the crowd and occasionally selling "evil" toys like Beretta CX4 Storm (I hate this process!) , as well as studying CA firearms laws... they are weird.

I am so happy to have found calguns.net ! Awesome site and seems like a great collection of good people.

I'm not new to the list, but I have never posted before. The 5th of February I will be coming off a 10 year no guns ban by Kalifornia. I intend to build my collection back up again, so I will be using the "For Sale" part of the forum, a lot. BTW - What does it mean when you "bump" in the for sale area?

hello everyone, my names will but you can call me salt.
I'm not from California (Washington state) but your sight seemed like a cool gun community.
I'm a aircraft mechanic for Boeing, and i used to be a custom home builder, so i love to build things. I also love to draw, paint, and sculpt.
Recently my cousin got me interested in customizing my guns, right now I'm working on customizing my Mosin Nagant.

GUNS I OWN:
Mosin Nagant M91/30 - sporterized or rather in the process of being sporterized
FNH 57 - w/ green laser and silencer
Serbu Super Shorty/ Moss 500
Saiga 12 - converted
Henry lever action 22
LWRC REPR .308!!!
Crappy 22 rifle - gave it to a friend, i hated that gun. It was a marlin

Talking FNG reporting for duty.

Hi everyone! I'm another new guy here. I was directed to this great site by my local gun shop. I have always wanted to own a firearm and finally decided to commit to buying one. Was doing som research and trying to educate myself before I buy. That's what led me to the shop and ultimately here.
Thanks, and I apologize in advance if I end up asking som obvious questions
Chris

When a post starts to get old it moves down the list as new posts are added. By proofing to the post it " bumps" it to the top of the list making it relevant again. Sometimes the person has nothing to say, but just wants to move it up so they type "bump".

Hi, all.
Been shooting off and on since I could a gun. Getting back to shooting more lately, a current member doing a FTF at turners in corona told me about cal guns.

I look forward to sharing...

Been reading this site for awhile and decided to join and throw my 2 cents in on occasion. I was born and raised in CA and it certainly isn't the state it once was. I do think Calguns has the right approach in trying to stem the loss of our rights and moving the ball forward in our favor, hence the reason for joining. Hopefully we all can make a positive contribution.

Cheers!

Hey everyone! My name is Jason and I'm new to CalGuns, and bought my first firearm about a year ago, a Remington 870 that i've set up for home defense. I bought my second gun a few weeks ago, a Daniel Defense M4V5 from riflegear.com. I haven't even gotten the chance to take it out yet! Hoping to soon. Looking forward to growing my hobby through knowledge gained by perusing and contributing to the forums!

I dont know if this is an obvious answer or not, but can I be part of this forum even though I am not from CA? can I buy/sell/trade guns if I am not from CA?

I just joined Calguns! I've been roaming the forums for quite a while and decided it was time to join this awesome place. I have been enjoying collecting C&R guns for a while thanks to this site and now am looking forward to building an ak-74 rifle as well.

Just set up my account on here, bought my first revolver 627 Taurus Tracker and this weekend me and my wife will be going to the range to break this puppy in. I'm looking forward to purchasing some more guns so I can get my collection going and I also am looking for one for my wife. So I hope I can find some good deals on here.

Greetings all. Been reading this site for the year or so I have lived here and decided it was time to join the fray.

Moved out here for a job from the great state of Michigan. Been shooting and hunting for about 15 years now, shot my first Winchester .22 when I was 9 years old and have never looked back. Looking forward to being part of the group!

That’s perfectly okay. Some us here are here for more than just shooting, like the community and to take a stand in CA for our civil rights (yours included). Welcome to CGN!

Of course you can! One of the great things of this site is we encourage the knowledge and learning of the gun laws in CA, and having more folks out of state understand CA laws always helps the cause. Welcome to CGN.

Welcome boiler! It’s cool that you get to shoot with your wife, I wish my came with me more often. Be sure to check out the market place for deals. More often than not there is one (or many) but you have to be quick.

Hi all,

New to your forum. Was born in the Bay Area, but the parental units moved us all up north when I just a wee one. Still just up the road from y'all in Orygun (where subguns are water-cooled). Interests are mostly current or recent martial small arms; seem to get a kick outta shotguns (punn intended) and am trying to learn more about their employment - kinda seems like a lost art.
