Default Newbie in search of guidance

Just starting out with target shooting and looking to buy my first rifle and handgun in the near future. Found a lot of useful info on this forum so figured I'd join. Doing a lot of research 1st and considering what Hand guns and rifles might be best for starting and getting comfortable with shooting. Gone to the LA Gun Club range about 5 times already and now am seriously considering getting my own rifle and hand gun for target shooting. I'll find where I should post to get other opinions on some of the Rifles / Hand Guns I'm considering.

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I'm out in Redlands, CA (SoCal). Not new to firearms, AR's, etc. but in light of recent events I thought now would be a good time to get on a forum. Look forward to meeting and having some good discussions with you guys.

Hello, I am fairly new to the site. Great info, but so much, wow!
I have been involved with shooting and guns since I was a child, 40+ years.
I am mostly a pistol/revolver guy.

I have a question regarding hi-cap mags for my pistols - I owned them prior to the great gun grab and wonder about the issue of using them at the range and shoting in public. I got beefed recently at a local outdoor range for my pre-ban/legal 20 and 30 round mags for my Mini-14 (range guys insisted they were illegal) and wondered if I will get beefed with my pistols too (Browning Hi-Power, Glock 22). Any thoughts/answers/advice?

Please re-direct me if I should ask this in another place. Thanks.

Hi, new to the forum and new to guns as well. I bought my first gun. A shot gun Remington 870 tactical. I am still in the 10 day waiting period. I plan on picking up some hand guns as well probably 45's. My wife and I will be taking our first gun class this month. I am in San Diego. I have already found the information here very helpful. I don't know how much I may be able to contribute with my little knowledge but will when I can. Thanks

New member, but been viewing a while. Wanted to say thank you to the contributors who have helped me with valuable info on searches via web, pistol info, as well as tips/tricks and a bunch of other stuff already.


Mid 30's guy living in Yolo county, only been hunting and collecting firearms a few years now, but thankfully have family and older friends raised in the environment to learn from. Looking forward to learning more, and helping out where I can.

Hi Everyone, Thanks for the Semiauto rifle ban flowchart as it helps simplify the laws. I'm in Los Angeles, have 2 handguns (Glock & Taurus pre-ban) and a new DPMS Oracle.

I was planning to purchase an AR-15 this summer after Turners Shooting fair but I got caught up in the craziness of the potential assault weapons ban and bought what was left figuring it was better to have one than none. I was looking to "buy once and cry once" but I may buy another if I get another chance later when stores restock in 6 to 12 months.

Hi everyone! I've been reading around these forums for a bit and finally decided to register. I'm a long time gun enthusiast, and have recently picked up my first AR. The only other guns I've owned is an older 1911 (kind of a family heirloom from my grandfather), a .30-06 (my very first rifle), and a standard run of the mill 12ga shotgun.

Now that I have my AR (and can't find squat for it like everyone else), I'm looking for another .45 to take to the range. I've got my choices narrowed down to a few models, but haven't pulled the trigger so to speak. Looking forward to getting to know some of you and expanding my knowledge. Cheers!

Checking in from the great state of Alabama!

Found the site while looking for pics of non-black AR's and thought the atmosphere was most excellent. Hope you guys don't mind a southerner (NOT a redneck/hick/hillbilly!) in your midst. I promise not to tell y'all how we do it "here". LOL!

FWIW, I have been to California several times drag racing with my family. We ran in Bakersfield, Pomona, and Sonoma back in the early-mid 90's.

Hi, Sarg

I'm one of the Calguns Coordinators in the Sac general area. We have tons of stuff to do in January and at least two planned shoots in February. Here's a link to the Sacramento Chapter Forum, where you can see what's happening.

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/f...play.php?f=289

Especially, you might want to join us for the Sacramento Monthly Shoot, at the Sac Valley Shooting Center in Ione. Look for the announcement in the Sacramento Chapter Forum

Hi All,

I'm Iran and I'm new to Calguns, but not to firearms. I'm a US Army Veteran and split my time between Chicago and SoCal. Ok, no jokes please! I've recently done quite a bit of research on CA gun laws and everything I've needed to know Calguns covered, so thanks to all of the Calguns Family!

I look forward to being apart of the forum!
