Default Are there any good clubs/militia type groups in socal?

I get that some may not want to respond on this thread, PM me if you want. I am trying to find a well organized "club". I'd like to learn survival and shooting techniques, as well as make friends with a good group of people that are prepared to band together in the case of a state or national emergency. I have already noticed that calguns.net has some really awesome people that have offered to take me shooting with them and teach me some things. I'm looking to take it a step further and pay some dues to gain some benefits and chomrodery.

Well no Civil servants or government employees are going to respond.....they'd be potentially breaking the law in CA to do so.

Good luck!

Your OP was in-artfully phrased - one might almost assume you are a plant, looking for someone stupid enough to admit membership in a type of organization that is illegal here in Kalifornistan.

My advice is to spend time at a local range and network. You will eventually meet people who like to go shoot.

Look at your local Appleseed Project. Plenty of Patriots involved there. You can no doubt meet some prepper types and get connected as well.

I see nothing about subversion or anti-government in the OP, just someone wanting to be prepared and self-sufficient should the SHTF.

The times I have gone to Appleseed training there have been a fair amount of military and LEO there with family and friends. Again, nothing subversive.

Militia doesn't mean subversive. I highly recommend reading Patriots and getting informed.

Check out the Military or a Reserve/Guard component. California also has a State Military branch you might look into.

There are two groups in California that run organized gatherings, sponsor shooting events, band together in the case of a state or national emergency 9like we saw recently with Hillary) and many of the really awesome people here on Calguns.net are members of BOTH clubs. And your wish to take it a step further and pay some dues to gain some benefits and chomrodery is granted - well, I'm not so sure about the "chomrodery" aspect, but I do know there is a lot of camaraderie involved - they are:


- The NRA
- CRPA.





Welcome to the clubs.

Hell's Angels. They have a clubhouse in Bakersfield and I think you can do the application right at the local bar.

Comrade, these "militias" are not allowed for your safety. Guns kill people. And if you join illegal "militia", you will most likely die. Is for your safety we don't allow.

You are too possessed of material things. In event of problem, the State will provide. Trust us.

Seriously though, the PRK couldn't allow militias because that flies in the face of their anti-2A stance that only "the police and army should have those guns". If you allowed organized, local militias their argument would hold no weight (although it doesn't hold much, if any now). And then it would be chaos. Everyone would have a gun. It would like the OK Corral.....or so the illogic goes.

I didn't see that coming. It's hard to join any club if you are anti-social.
