Smile Intro.

Warm greetings from the mouth of the Mad River! I'm Ray. Looking forward to picking the brains here. Been researching various AR-10 platforms recently and it's blowing my mind (and budget). Hope to own a big black gun soon.

Thanks for having me and I look forward to learning more and making new friends.

Default Who exactly is a Calguns member?

I joined this site because after reading about how Calguns is fighting for our 2A rights in a manner other than just lobbying and pandering to legislators. They are getting the job done in the courts by picking their fights wisely and I believe it is the right approach. But I've been reading all over this site but yet to come to a good answer to "Who is a Calgun member". Obviously the Board of Directors, Regional Directors, etc are members. But Junior member? How does one get the title of "senior member"? Based on how much time you have been in the forum? Volunteerism? From reading the donate page it seems you get to add "contributor" to your posts, but does that make you a member?? Are there dues to be a full fledged member or is a member of Calguns just someone who signed up for this forum? If its just who ever signs up to be on the forum is a member, I suppose any member of the Brady Campaign or any anti gun group can sign up and say they are a member. Just very curious.

Ray,

Welcome to CGN! looks like you picked up the BRD (Black Rifle Disease) also.
The only cure is $$$ and a trip to the centerfire rifle section. Glad to have you aboard.

SWalt,

Welcome! You're very sagacious.

The different members you see under each handle are base on # of posts, pure and simple.
Juniors are 0-99
Member is 100-499
senior member is 500-2499
veteran member 2500 -4999
calguns addict 5000-9999
i need a life is 10000+
Be warned as number of posts doesn't always equate to quality of posts.

Contributors are those that have decided to contribute ($) to Calguns (CGN) and receive "contributor privileges" (you can find out more about that here)

It is true, everyone can sign up to be a member, brady or otherwise.

However, many of the legal actions taken to overturn frivolous, archaic, and capricious laws are taken up by the Calguns Foundation (CGF) which is operated separately.

Hope that helps.

Just to add to Ubermcoupe's post...

Calguns.net (CGN) doesn't have a Board of Directors. It's a private forum owned by Head Janitor, Kestryll. Further, it's not to be confused with The Calguns Foundation (CGF) which is a 501(c)3 non-profit. CGN does have a Board of Directors.

Finally, members of the Brady Campaign and other anti-civil rights groups are welcome to join us and discuss issues. Polite conversation between opposing positions is always encouraged.

Welcome to Calguns.

CAGLS,

Welcome to CGN! Congrats on the purchase(s) and glad you're taking the right steps to protect your family and the proper safe guards to insure against negligence.
Although, you might will need a bigger safe for that growing collection.

Hi all,

Long time shooter/lurker, new member here. Just wanted to say "thanks" for all the info. Months of researching this site helped me to build my first AR-15 the way I wanted it (CA legal of course) instead of settling for a complete rifle that was just "close" to what I really wanted.

A0,

Welcome to Calguns! Glad you finally joined up and hope you stick around.

Just found this great site and wanted to introduce myself.... I'm looking into an AR, and will most likely have a bunch of questions in regards to the model I am looking at, and the legality of it in Calif. I have read a bunch of the legal stuff on AR's that are deemed legal for Calif, but the terminology seems way to vague to be absolutely sure one is in compliance with the law. Again, looks like a great site!!

Hello All

I've been lurking for a while, mainly watching the San Joaquin CCW thread. Recently became the owner of my first gun, an FNP-9. Currently halfway through my waiting period on a Ruger 10/22 that I'm going to use to introduce my two sons (11 & 14) to shooting. This will be a big departure since, even though my dad kept guns around the house, including three on a gun rack by our front door, touching, asking or inquiring about them was expressly forbidden. Actually shooting them was not even a topic of consideration. As such, I grew up with thinking guns were some kind of WMDs that were to be avoided. Only recently did some friends talk me into it and finally, at age 38, I joined the masses in expressing my 2nd amendment rights. Now the question is, do I want to eat dinner or add to my growing collection!

Ernie,

Welcome to Calguns! Be sure to check out the Centerfire rifles section. I’m sure it will help with your AR questions.

Ian,

Welcome to Calguns! Good for you for getting your sons involved. I still remember the first time my old man opened my eyes to the shooting world.
Thanks for checking in and I hope you stick around.
