Hey everyone,

Hi everyone!

Moving to North Sacramento next month (so says the military), just wanted to get on the forums before I moved out.

Currently working on converting my FS2000 to be cali-compliant. Gonna go post pics/questions now.

Greetings!

I just accepted a job offer in the Bay Area and will be moving out in the next couple months from Indiana where I am licensed to carry my glock 23 gen4 handgun.

It's better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.
I pray that my luck doesn't run out with the latter when my wife and I move.

On to my search for legalities and options for moving to the area....

Hello CalGuns, I got tired of my buddy perpetually sending me links from the site, and figured what better group to be a part of since I''ve been in Sacramento for 8 years.

I'll learn as much, and contribute as much as I can.

Thank you Ladies and Gentleman for making it easy to join. I have lived in the Sacramento area since 2004. Calguns seems to be full of information, and not beat up on the new guy (at least from the trolling I have done) too bad, so I thought I would join.

Thanks for having me.

Yes. I would like to change my user name, too. It got misspelled when I originally put it into the system.

This is my First Post today... it never let me post before!

Default Hello All!

Hey everyone, I have been on Calguns for a little while now, but have never taken the chance to introduce myself. I am from Las Vegas, Nevada. I was a police officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department prior to moving to Santa Cruz, California in 2011 after meeting my wife. (Santa Cruz is her hometown.)

I now work as a supervisor and firearms instructor for a major corporate security department. I am an NRA member and a certified NRA Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor. I enjoy teaching and training. I am looking for ranges near Santa Cruz where I can train utilizing mobility, tactics, and different courses of fire. I am proud to be a member of this forum and look forward to getting to know you all.

Greetings, I was a member in the past with a poor choice of companion that was a big of a troll.
Those days are past, I'm back under a different user name and I definitely am made of sterner stuff.
East Bay/Oakland co-founder of Alameda/Oakland Pink Pistols and range safety hen. I split my time between here and Washington.
If you encounter me on the line or at an event I may come off as serious. I won't bite, its just a thick skin reflex from being a 5'0 gal in a very male dominated world.

Hello All,

It's a great pleasure to have now registered officially for Calguns, as I was previously a lurker for the longest time. Also, I figured it wouldn't hurt and could only help since I already own some firearms and I'm very eager to learn more about firearms.

Hi from John in Carmichael. Just found Calguns in a search today. Happy to know that there is a place for present and future CA gun owners to talk and share. My main shooting range is Waldo Rd. behind Beale AFB. I'm the one with the white 4Runner who runs my armorplate targets up the hill. Best wishes to you all.

Howdy Folks!

A couple of coworkers keep talking about Calguns, so I finally broke down and registered to see what all the fuss is about

I guess my main goals here are to see what it would take to get an FFL as a private individual, see what I can learn, see what I can contribute, maybe spread some words here and there about civil war reenactments, and have a good time.

Default Hello and Man am I glad to be HERE

I just joined and am a bit perturbed with what the gun grabbers have planned for our state. That total disarmament proposed legislation by the guy in Sacramento gets me a bit concerned. What can we do about it beyond emailing my representatives (already did). Oh, btw, my name's Mike.

Hello all,
I am a new member here. Been a greedy user of info from this site for a long time and thought I would finally make it honest...

I have lived here in the SF Bay area my whole life and grew up around guns, hunting, knives, and general love of the outdoors.

Hope to get re-educated on all of the general nutiness of the ridiculous gun laws here in California. I own several firearms already, from precision rifles to AR's to Shotguns, and pistols. I have admitedly been away form guns for a while now and am thinking about purchasing a 1911 in the next month or so.

I knew that guns sales had been out of hand lately with all of the stuff in the news, but I have been shocked to find what its really like out there now that I am shopping for another gun lately.

Good to be here,
Erik

Hello calguns. I'm glad that this site exists. I'm a new gun owner and enthusiast. I want to make sure to follow all the laws of our wonderful State (CA) no matter how unreasonable they are... I don't want any trouble. I figure this is the best place to get all the info I'll need. Thanks!

Hi All , wanted to first say thank you for giving California shooters a resource to connect with one another. My military career was in Air Force Pararescue for 5 years until an injury, now in last year of surgical residency at a Los Angeles Trauma center. Looking forward to learning new things and meeting some fellow Cal gunners. Best-JM

Hey guys, found you today, while looking for Bowers on Google. Have an old Star loader with 38, 9mm and 45 dies and Lee loaders, looking for reloading components. I am in North Orange County.

I do believe we here in California are in for another fight and will have to stick together to protect our rights and educate other who just do not know or don’t care…yet.

NRA & CPRA Life member.

I will try to make it to the Stanton 2/26 shoot to meet some of you in person.

Hello,
New member to Calguns, but I've been using this site for reference for quite some time now. Glad to have all this great reference in one place.
I currently own a Ruger 10/22, but there may be more in my future if I can just find something!
