Hey guys. I'm coming from El Dorado County.
I don't really consider myself liberal anymore (due to their misguided opinions on gun law, nuclear power, etc.) but my political views are mainly progressive with a few libertarian aspects. Most importantly though, I'm a California Secessionist. So if nothing else, I should at least bring some interesting conversation to the table. :)
Currently I don't own any guns (I'm only in high school) but I plan on getting a Taurus PT1911 or a Beretta Px4 .45 when I come of age, and openly carrying. I definitely consider myself a gun enthusiast though.

Just saying Hi
 
Howdy,

I'm only recently discovered this site; but it is quickly becoming of of my 'most visited' sites according to my Firefox toolbar. I have found particularly useful the discussion on Bug Out Bags. Up until now my bug out gear was basically my Burning Man gear, with a few extra supplies tossed in. Thanks to the discussion here, I'm making some significant additions.

So, I just wanted to say Hi, Thanks, and I'll see you in the Forums.

Yo!

I was referred to this site by a buddy of mine at work, who will remain anonymous. Well, I don't know his user name. Sucks. Thanks for having me. Oh, I just picked up my CMMG Lower today from Irvington Arms. Can't wait to build up the AR. Just wanted to introduce myself and say, nObama!

Where are you going to be stationed?

Big048 04-10-2009 7:25 AM

Hello all. Been trolling your forums for a couple days and I like what I see. I'm not a gun expert by any stretch of the imagination but I am an enthusiast. One other quick note about myself, I am a Manager at a Bay Area (South Bay) Big 5 Sporting Goods. So feel free to ask me anything about Big 5, no complaints please, I only deal with those while being paid. :yes:

Roadrunner 04-12-2009 4:30 PM

Test test test. Is this thing working? I'm brandie newie here so please cut me a break. All of the stuff I've been hearing about Obama and guns prompted me to do some local searching, and then I found this website. It seems like people here are also pretty fed up with what's happening, so am I at the right place? I think I'll look around and save my questions for later.

By the way, Happy Easter.

Welcome aboard.
New guy brings the ammo. Luckily you work with it so it'll be easy for you:)

I don't know that we have that many actual experts but we each know plenty about something and that adds to the collective knowledge of Calguns. We'll pick it apart until we get a good answer.

See you out abd about,

Hi guys/gals

I am 19 and a resident of the bay area, san jose to be exact.

I was referred to calguns by a gentlemen I met in Big5 searching for some 91/30's, which I still cannot find ;____;.

I hope to learn a lot from this community

GJC 04-13-2009 6:52 PM

New Here from San Diego area
 
Well been lurking for a couple days and decided to join. I was taught to shoot and responsibility about firearms from my Awsome Grandfather. Have finally decided (should have done so a long time ago) to purchase my first handgun. I settled on a SIG SAUE SP2022 in 9mm. Can't wait to start taking it to the range often. 8 days and 12 hrs to go :rolleyes:

sleepiemonkee 04-13-2009 8:12 PM

Hello!
 
Hello guys,

Same with GJC, I've been lurking around reading up as much as I can on OLLs, PPTs, FFLs, and all the crazy acronyms that goes with our great state's gun laws. This site is professional and informative. Thanks for all the hard work and dedication to make this site so.

I'm currently waiting my 10 days (finishing up on the 21st of April) to receive my first pistol which is a SIG P225/P6. As I'm a big fan of SIGs, I'm currently on a personal mission to collect some semi-rare models to shoot and have as a personal defense gun.

I look forward to many more intriguing threads!

Big Cholla 04-14-2009 2:41 PM

Ditto on all the "Hellos". I lurked for all of about 5 minutes and saw that this was a quality site. I live in So. Nevada and am about to retire from active Law Enforcement to play with my guns, gunsmithing and motorcycles. I will contribute when I can, comment when I am compelled to do so and will enjoy reading the learned posts by my fellow gunnies. ........... Big Cholla

Hi to all from norcal/bayarea. I've been reading so long here and finally decided to jump in. Be safe everyone.

Hello,

Im in So-Cal, I have wandered in here after increased chatter after the election. I am happy to have found this place. I really enjoyed reading about the UOC events and responses.

Well hello to all, and good luck to us all.

yarry23 04-16-2009 2:47 PM

Hello all,

Names Yarry, and I live in sunny Santa Cruz, CA. Been firing rifles forever as a kid up in the Santa Cruz Moutains where I grew up, and have been shooting long rifles with my Dad ever since.

Just got into pistol shooting (got myself a Kimber Eclipse2 1911) and boy do I have a lot to learn! I met an awesome guy named Chris at the Scotts Valley Range today who not only helped me with my firing stance (getting me to actually herd my shots towards what I had intended them to hit) but turned me on to you guys. Now I have two things to thank him for. ;)

I am one of those rare breeds of "Gun Toting Librals", but hopefully you wont hold that against me. That being said, I *AM* interested in seeing how I might get an AR-15. Hopefully these forums will help provide me the answer.

Cheers, and look forward to getting to know you folks better!

Hello calgunners,

My name is Andrew and im from the southern california in the city of Alhambra and i have a problem...I like guns Lol

I am a proud owner of a ar15 in which i begun my collection last year so im fairly new to owning a weapon. In july ive taken the task of building my first two ar lowers, but as fast as everything started up for my projects i was quickly cut down to size. A month later I believe i was molested by the system and stripped of all weapons (real and airsoft alike) due to poorly informed law enforcement. So here i am today to support my fellow california gun owners as well as receive support. As well as chat about something new and cool from the ar industries :)

Islanti 04-17-2009 10:51 AM

Hello folks,

My name is Adrian and I live in Coto de Caza, a small community in South Orange County. I'm not a current gun owner but have always been interested in gun ownership. A variety of factors led me here. I'm looking to educate myself more in advance of purchasing. My wife and I (and eventually our two sons) are both looking to learn to handle, clean, and shoot guns properly.

As I've been researching gun ownership in California I've become increasingly frustrated and confused. I'll try to keep the questions to a minimum and read to soak up the collective wisdom.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to participating.

Hi,

I've been a frequent guest visitor to Calguns for a little more than a year now, and I figured today would be as good a day as any to start getting actively involved.

Thanks in large part to the information provided on this forum, I was able to purchase and assemble my first OLL rifle, and am in the process of acquiring a second.

That's all for now.

SkyCopTSN 04-21-2009 9:23 AM

Hope this works. I'm a little tech challenged so bear with me. Joined today to further my ability to interact with similar minds. I'm an Orange County attorney and recent casualty of the "New Sheriff in Town"s Draconian crusade against CCWs. Look forward to participating, particularly in the legal and political arena.

New to Calguns
 
After searching the net, I was lucky to find this site. Relatively new to forums and tried searching for my question but to no avail. I own 1 post ban Eagle Arms EA15 and 1 Post Ban Armalite M15. Both were registered as Assault Weapons before the 2000 deadline. I brought them to a range 2 weeks ago after being in my safe for 6 years and I was denied entry because I did not have my registration paperwork on me. I thought that was weird but like I mentioned, I have not been out in 6 years. So paranoia aside, I should be ok if I go back with my paperwork right? Also after exhaustively searching the net, it seems that I can add whatever features to my rifles now since they are both registered right? My EA15 has a collapsible stock and I wanted to add a new 16" upper. Considering purchasing the LaRue Stealth Series with a 16" barrel, flash suppressor, and RIS. I'm ok dong that right? Also on my Armalite M15 it's a standard 20" but was considering making it another legal length carbine. Am I doing anything that is not legal? Any advice is welcomed. Thanks for having me and looking forward to sharing tips/advice/stories with other folks that are in this sport.

P.G.C. 04-24-2009 2:12 PM

Hi everybody, I've been enjoying this site for years and appreciate all of the good information that I've read. I watched the transition from Gunscal to here and just finally joined. I know, I'm slow =)

Hey everyone,

A little about myself. I'm a proud combat vet who likes shooting, golf, and beer! I also like to do web design and developement on my free time. I live in the San Fernando valley outside Los Angeles.

I look forward to this forum and to see what others have to say.

umoja 04-28-2009 1:03 PM

Hey everyone, just registered because I've lurked this site before for good info on California laws (this place is almost like it's own encyclopedia), and figured I'd register so I could support the cause. I like California but I hate the gun laws here, and I figure while I'm here I might as well do something about it.

DoubleAgentM 04-28-2009 7:28 PM

Just starting out...
 
Hi everyone,

I just registered a couple days ago and just placed an order for a MEGA Gator lower and charging handle assembly :)

This will be my first build and the first owned firearm. I am looking forward to reading all the informative posts and seeing all those awesome black rifles.

Thanks,

Danny

damilfman 04-29-2009 10:17 AM

hey everyone,

I've been a long time visitor on this forum, but I finally stepped and registered. Everyone for the most seems to be humble and friendly here. I hate the state we live in but hopefully by the end of the year if things work out Iwill be moving out of here into a free state....yyyyyaaaaayyyyy!!! Anyways I hope to pick up a lot of valuable info from here as well as contribute.

paintballergb 04-29-2009 10:43 AM

Hi I'm Thomas from Stockton. I'm active duty military currently serving in Afghanistan. I'm avid gun enthusiast, I've had an opportunity to shoot a lot of different weapons, I'm much better with some than I am with others. But I'm looking to learn as much as I can from the other members here and continue honing my skills. And maybe I can pass a little knowledge on to someone else as well. Glad I stumbled on the site.
