I just realized I've been lurking around Calguns for the last 3 years, and I don't believe I've ever posted. I just want to thank everyone who has taken the time to contribute information to this site. I probably won't post much since I'm mainly here to soak up knowledge.

Default Getting Back Into Guns & Shooting

New guy here, been looking at Calguns for about a year now. I'm a retired LEO (32 + years) and after being away from guns and shooting for about 10 years I wanted to get back into it. I like the way the Calguns Forum works and respect all the really good advice and great information I've seen here.

I have been on this site for a short time & I must admit this is a very impressive site. Everyone is kind & courteous & all the members really know there stuff with facts & not opinions. I am glad I found this site & I recommend to many people I meet through my business. This site is a well oiled machine & I am happy to be part of it. I am going to link it to my site or try as long as its within the rules & of course if I can figure out how. Perhaps some of the senior members can advise me on this. Keep up the great work and I will spread the word. We may start seeing more Texans soon. Good evening

Hello everyone,
My name is John I am a OEF vet. I have been a fan of this site for quite some time and a fan of firearms since I could walk (Thanks dad ). Currently I am working on obtaining a CCW for work (Ventura).

I am interested in Hunting (pig), survival techniques, tactical shooting, long range shooting, Cowboy action and black powder. I have a pretty good arsenal of versatile firearms although, it has slowed some since I got married . haha.

I look forward to meeting some friends and getting in on some good topics!

Hey everyone I'm new to Calguns, I got out of the Marines two years ago and now im looking to add a few more guns to collection. I'm most interested in building an AR and have been reading on the info posted on here. And will probably be asking a few questions in a short while. Thanks in advance for all the advice.

Default I am a total newbie - Great Site!

I have gone through the "New to Calguns" posts and I have to say I am glad to be a member. This is a very robust website/forum. I have a ton of questions regarding posting private firearms for sale? Can anyone tell me if there are mentors on this site that can help you through the process?

I am in Orange County, CA.

Thanks ahead of time!

Hi y'all,
I'm new to calguns but not to guns. Very much a part-time user but a full-time owner - maybe because I'm better at owning them than using them. I'm looking to expand the collection and spend more time at the range (and out in the vast open desert) so I'm looking to learn more about the guns I own and the ones I wish to.

This looks like a good place for that.

See you around.

My name's Austin and I'm fairly new to guns. We recently started going to Burrow Canyon range and my whole family's hooked! I get to pick up my first gun (XD 40) in a few days and couldn't be more stoked. I hope to learn a lot on this forum and look forward to contributing what I can.

Newb to everything. Guns and this forum. Well, I'm not a forum newb in general.

Checking in and doing lots of research. Gonna look into my first handgun. I like service weapons, but have been referred to the Beretta px4 storm 40.

Lets see what happens.

Hi, I just registered. I'm interested in emergency preparedness and thankfully stumbled across this website. I'm born (1964) and raised in SoCal and don't plan to leave. I'm not a seasoned gun owner; never hunted or been in the military.

I bought a nice Ruger 10-22 about 20 years ago. Nice wood stock on SS. I've taken it out to the desert about 20 times (my dad is a Vietnam vet living in LHC, AZ).

I also 'inherited' a Mossberg 88 12 gauge a few years back from a roommate, which I have never shot, and about 15+ years ago inherited a 410 shotty from my uncle (I IDed it many years back but forgot what it is), which I have taken out about 12 times. My dad and I have have fun shooting up clay pigeons with this gun; shells are much cheaper.

So I intend to buy my first handgun very soon, and this CA only gun site looks great! I'm gonna search around for a few days to find ansers, and if I can't, I'll start a thread.

Thanks for taking me in.

Long timer shooter, new to Calguns. I like shooting highpower rifle, rimfire rifle, and pistol. I primarily shoot at the SLOSA range just off Highway 1 in San Luis. I was there today testing our some loads for my .243.

I reload .308, .243, 40 S&W, 45 ACP and 9mm (for my daughter).

I also like McDonald's hot fudge sundays. In fact, I am eating one right now.

Hello, everyone! I'm Matthew; I currently live in Oceanside and I've lived in California for fifteen years. I'm originally British, but I've been here for a while.

I was introduced to guns as a member of the Royal Air Force cadets as a teenager, and shot many thousands of rounds there, mostly 7.62mm NATO through the L1A1 SLR (British licensed version of the FN FAL but built to Imperial measurements).

Haven't shot much since, but interested in getting back into the shooting hobby especially since finding I can buy a California-legal FAL! So looking at my options.
