Hello all. My name is Marty and I live in So Cali. Found this forum researching stuff for my Mosin Nagant. Use to shoot when I was a kid and now just getting back into it. Purchased a XD 9mm in december and have been having fun at the range with it. Just picked up my Mosin this month and have only put 40 rounds through it so far. I'm also intersted in reloading but havent been able to find a good local place to buy supplies. Anyone know of any good places.

Thanks

Hello! Happy to be here. I've been on Cal Guns for a few months now and I like what I see. I've actually sold a rifle of mine to another member a few weeks ago.
??? I received an "iTrader Rating", how do I view that??
Thanks.

Greetings from the sandbox ladies 'n gents. Been living in 29 Palms for over 4 years now and looks like I'll be stickin' around a while longer so I figured I'd start networking with some fellow gun "nuts" :-P Sold off my M&P-15 last fall *facepalm* but planning on getting an M&P 40 after tax season next year.

This site is rad! Been using TFL (thefiringline.com) and thehighroad.com for the past year (and will continue to do so), but his place is so much more CA specific! Really dig it. Thank you for the continued wealth of knowledge.

This is such an awesome site. My wife and I recently decided we would pick up a handgun for home defense. Although we both have many relatives who own guns, my general knowledge of guns was limited to a small number of manufacturers; process of how to obtain one was nonexistent. CG and it's members really helped open our eyes to what is available and answer a lot of my questions.

After firing a good number, we decided on a PX4 as our first (pickup is scheduled for next Mon). The new one isn't in our hands yet and we are already eyeballing a 686/GP100 next.

Thanks again
Derrick E.

Hello all. Hoping to join the OC CCW fight. I was forced to testify against someone that was sent to jail due partly to my testimony and he was convicted of attempted murder and got off on a murder charge years ago. I most certainly want to protect myself, seeing as he is now out of jail, thanks for the warning California; they tell me he's getting out, but won't let me protect myself. Hmmmm.

Default New to Cal Guns/Can't Find ANY CLASSIFIEDS

Yes I'm brand new to Calguns. I found my way here cuz I told a friend I just got a new tactical stock for my Ruger 10/22 and I want to sell the Deluxe checker walnut stock and the nice Ruger leather strap. He suggested I do it here, however, I can't find the classified ads where I would place one? Thx.

Never mind. I just listed them on Ebay. I didn't want to, but I couldn't find any Classifieds here.

Hi everyone, been lurking.. thought I'd join. Love the interaction and advice here. I'm in the Inland Empire. I'm not a gun expert or pro shooter or anything. Looking to be more active in shooting. I have a Ruger .357 Revolver, a Glock 19 that I just picked up last Monday and have yet to fire, and a 30.06 rifle. I'd really like to get involved in shooting groups or activities but don't know any. My goal is to learn my guns better, improve my accuracy and do what I can to protect our 2nd Amendment right. I just joined the NRA a week ago. I bought a Life membership. Anyways, thought I'd introduce myself.

Default Hello from a new member

Hello all. I found out about this site from a friend, and seems like a great resource. As soon as I get familiar with it, I will be posting my Kahr CM9 for sale...like new and broken in nicely (approx 300 rounds through it, slide racked about 2000 times, and several thorough cleanings...those familiar with Kahr know what I mean!). Look forward to lots of great discussion and learning. Take care and shoot straight!

Hello everyone, great forum. Googling for Ca gun laws and found it very helpful so far. I own a few handguns, rifles, and shotguns. OnTarget range is my closest local range, and I go a few times a month. I also just started reloading 45acp and 9mm, so far it's been fun.

I hope to keep up on Ca laws, places to shoot, gun reviews, and all things guns here.

Relative noob here but I have tried the search and it brought me here but I still cannot find what "SBF" means in for sale forum. I do like how what you search for comes up red in the forums but I could not make it through 51 pages! Maybe I just need coffee this am but if someone could answer I would appreciate it.

Cheers

Default HI!

Hey! whats up CalGunners

I have fired a few guns in my life and up until a couple months ago I have been very interested in the sport of firearms. I am not new to the world of forums on the net, but am new to this one. I'm looking forward to joining your community in hopes of learning the laws, safety and proper use of both rifles and handguns. A little bit about myself, I am 30, live in south cali, love to ride bikes and build custom pc mods.

See you guys in the thread!

Hi everyone. I found this site while trying to google how difficult it is to get a CCW in El Dorado County. I'm currently stationed in NC, but I am from the east bay originally, and I plan on moving to the sacramento area sometime in the next 6 - 9 months to go to college at Sac State. So far I've seen lots of good info up here, and I hope to be able to contribute sometime in the future.
