HK SR9T

HK 45 ACP
HK SP89 PARABELLUM
STEYR SPP
HK SL8

Hey CG:

I got refered here by a friend and thought I'd write a quite introduction.

I've grew up around fire arms so they've always been something I was aware of and trained properly how to operate. Back in the 70's & 80's my family owned a gunshop in San Diego; this was before I was born I'm a youngin'. For one reason or another they closed up and my father sold most of his collection. I've since started building my collection now I have some extra income. I've recently inherited my grandfather's Springfield 1911 service pistol which is my first handgun of the collection. 5 years ago I got started with an $80 Mosin which has mostly sat in my closet until recently. There were no indoor ranges I could use it at close by.

Yesterday I took the plunge on buying a 7.62 Saiga after seeing the short special Turner's was running on calguns. Too cheap to pass up and I don't have to deal with those silly bullet buttons. My enthusiam has re-inspired my father to get back into it and he was looking at a M&P15 sport or an entry level AR.

-Sean

Hello to all Calguns Members.

Just recently joined the forums after my cousin introduced me into the world of guns and collecting after shooting his AR-15 at the range a few weeks ago. I just turned 26 last month, born and raised in South Sacramento. Currently in the middle of piecing my own AR-15 together so the forums have been a great help.

Default Hey there Calgunners,

I am really proud to be on such an active site with lotsa kind folks.

I am Masteryor and have been since the first days of HALO...raised around guns and hunting on the Texas coast....now a disabled semi retired minister, computer consultant and gun restorer to name a few. I hope to start up an online store where guns, computers and God are well mixed.

A FAIR WARNING... I am a die hard lover of the .22 mag (WMR, OR WHATEVER) and actually working on a few projects with gun manufacturers and ammo companies to show how effective and useful the new .22 magnum truly is...

My CHL is clear that self defense means center fire ... Yet I and several others contend that may be a bit archaic...(pocket 5 shot .22 mag revolver).

Glad to be in and lets get to the good stuff...

Masteryor (age 63).

Hi everybody. I just joined calguns.net today. I have known how to shoot since I was 10, and I've gone shooting from time to time throughout my life, mostly with my shotgun. I live in Sacramento county, where the sheriff started issuing concealed carry permits in 2010. I figured I'd better get one while he's still doing it. Today, I friend of mine took me to the range to try out a few of his pistols, since he already has a CCW permit and carries frequently. I learned that I shoot a Glock 9mm Model 19 Gen 2 the best of all of his guns, so I'll probably want to get a used one of those. I also liked his S&W Airweight .38 spec. So, my next trick is to find a Glock 19 on calguns.net. Cheers, everyone!

Figured I'd say hi from socal. Been trapped in the area for five years now and figured I'd join Calguns to shoot the bull with other like minded individuals from the area and also keep up with any current events. I'll see y'all at the range.

Freshest meat on the block taking a moment to say thank you all for your incredible depth of knowledge and willingness to share. I have already spent countless hours on this forum and figured I should officially "join up". Looking forward to learning more.

Joined the forum a few months ago and want to get started in some conversations.
First off thank you all for supporting this Hobby, and sport.
Being on........ a way... on the other side of young this a perfect way to be out of the house and city for fresh air and the smell and sounds of igniting gun powder.
I do want to pose a question, but not sure what category and how to start a new thread.
See you at the range.

All my life I loved guns the outdoors and meat for some reason it took me 45 years to put those three together.

Firm believer on the balance that guns provide in all aspects of life.

My name is Mark. I go up to the high desert and shoot guns. Rifles, shotguns, and handguns. I go up there as an annual trip for guys including my dad's co-workers, my brothers, dad, friends, and nephews. We blow up tannerite and shoot targets. Great time.

Hello folks my name is Greg, I am from California, born and raised however I moved/transfered to Arkansas (thanks IBM) back in 2006, then transfered to Louisiana in 2009 (again thanks IBM) Upon settling in from my move to Arkansas and the culture shock... I recieved junk mail flyers from sporting goods stores and about had a heart attack, I was looking at fishing tackle and came across the gun page and that was all she wrote. Before I knew it I purchased a dozen weapons/guns and started going to gun shows (better then porn!) I am getting old and have always wanted a M1A/M14, AR15/M16, etc. Honestly I haven't even fired most of my weapons. Now I have a opportunity to relocate back to California and after some research most of my weapons are not legal. This is why I have joined your forum. I have many questions. I don't want to spend my retirement at club fed.
