Default New SF South Bay guy...

Hi folks! New to Calguns, but not guns. Did a lot of hunting with my Dad and on my own when I was a young. Grew up, worked my buns off for 30 years, and just recently retired.

I still have my 30-30 Winchester from way back when. My Mom gave the rest of my guns away while I was in the service a long time ago (sigh).

So, I'm on an acquisition spree now to support my newly acquired interest in range shooting and HD. I also hope to eventually get back into hunting again.

Just picked up a 9mm pistol and am shooting that for now - expect to be out of ammo in another few weeks unless some 9mm starts showing up for sale soon...

So, I'm thinking another pistol may be required in a not so ammo scarce caliber. I'm currently looking for a good 20 ga semi.

Thanks for all the great info on this site. Hope to see some of you out on the range and make contributions to topics on the forum when I can.

Lou

Thanks folks. It seems all the gun shops in the area are closed! Visited 3 today trying to look at shotguns, and I guess everyone went to the SHOT show in Vegas....

Welcome from Los Gatos! I love shooting 9mm. Very inexpensive compared to most. Check out http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=397946 for great prices on reloads.
