New Guy in Oakland
 
Hello CG board-

I am a California Gunner in Oakland. Most of the time is the lady and myself at Chabot or SL Gun Club. Both of us shoot 1911's. I am new to .223 plinking with a SU-16CA that is currently being customized to meet my needs (fore grip, muzzle break).

Looking forward to the site!!

David

Hello, I am one of the new guy. I found this site doing research for a friend of mine who wanted an AR type of rifle and CA compliant. I thankfully am one of the lucky ones that bought before the ban.

Hi Everyone,
I'm also new to Calguns and think this will be my new home because it addresses the unique needs of the California gun owner. I just sent out my Email to all of the assembly members on AB2062 today.

Ding126 04-08-2008 5:07 PM

Hello,
Just wanted to say hello. I currently live & work in Az & Ca. I'm one of the lucky ones. I work and live in the Bay Area, grew up in Pacifica and now live in Fairfield, Ca. I also have a home in Arizona where all the fun stuff is kept.
Anyone in the area, please say hello.
I use the same screen name on all the sites I visit.

Welcome to CalGuns RomanDad.. I am pretty sure that you will find CalGuns a very pleasant place to learn/teach and find new CA gun owners to go shooting with...

Hi USN CHIEF!

naft 04-16-2008 9:59 PM

Soon to be CA resident
 
I'm currently living in Oregon but am moving to California shortly to finish my degree. I worked in a gun shop in the Portland area for three years. My problem is that I'm very familiar with firearm laws in Oregon and at the Federal level but don't know much about California's stipulations. I need some help figuring out what I can bring and what I must part with.

I did read through the “DOJ-large-cap-magazines-2005-11-10.pdf” as referenced elsewhere on the forum but, as seems to be the case with BATFE and other government agencies, the response seems somewhat ambiguous.

I know I can't bring:
RRA Entry Tactical
The ever-trusty CAI AK47 variant
Yugo SKS with Bayonet and grenade launcher
Any mags with capacity over 10rds.

I'm not sure about:
Mossberg 500 12ga, 18”, standard stock (somewhat “scary?”)
Mosin M44 (Integral bayonet?)
Steyr 95 (Bayonet Lug?)
'98 Mauser (Bayonet lug?)

I'm pretty sure I can bring:
Ruger 10/22
Rossi .38spl, 5shot
Sig P6
Sig P226
Kel Tec P3-AT
Sporterized 1903 in .270
1911, 8rd capacity

One more thing – do I need to register these firearms when I move of does that only apply if I purchase a firearm in CA?

Sorry for the long post, your help is very much appreciated!

Thanks everyone for creating this forum!

Nom de Guerre 04-17-2008 7:06 AM

naft,

This reply, from Librarian in the Handgun section to a question I posted not long ago, should answer some of your questions...

fat felixxx 04-17-2008 7:11 PM

Hey everyone,

I've been lurking a bit here at calguns.net just doing research finally decided to introduce myself. I picked up my first firearm, a glock 19, about 2 months ago and have been thoroughly enjoying it!

This 'sport' or 'lifestyle' sure is addicting! I'm already in the process of pieceing together my 'AR.'


And I was also wondering if you folks can point me in the right direction to buy some less boring/traditional targets. Just looking for something with some color and a bit more creativity. I remember seeing a target that was supposed to resemble Osama Bin Laden.

Any help will be great!

cj1026 04-19-2008 6:58 PM

Hi all. New to the site. I have been reading a lot of different topics on here and there is a ton of great information. I think I will be spending a lot of time on here and I already have a ton of questions.

hss0p 04-21-2008 8:49 AM

New guy here from Clovis. Great site you all have here, looks like all the members really contribute to it. I have already read the FAQs and stickies etc., and have a good understanding about what is CA legal.

I know a good amount about pistols and shotguns, but not too much about semi auto rifles.

I will be making my first AR15 style (prob Stag-15 with A.R.M.S. #40L model 2T preban) sometime this week. Very excited!

jazman 04-21-2008 10:56 AM

Hello from new guy in Bay Area
 
Hello all-
Glad to be here. I am an equal opportunity gun liker, I pretty much like them all. Have a few guns, favorite auto G19, favorite revolver Colt Python, favorite lever Rossi SS .357 trapper. I also hang out at LeverGuns, Ruger and Colt forums. Looking forward to being here. Jazman

lchurch 04-22-2008 9:53 AM

hello calguns!
 
My name is Larry Church and I'm a shooter.

My earliest firearm recollection is sitting on my father's lap and him showing me his .45 ACP Government issue 1911. This was during the "Occupation of Japan" and he was required to be armed -- that would make me 3 at the time. Perhaps that's why I'm a 1911 bigot!

I started shooting in Boy Scouts (at about 10), and purchased my first guns around then: a single shot, bolt action .22 and a 12 Ga single shot shotgun -- both Winchesters!

I have been a competitor in ISPC, IDPA, and 3 gun.
I have been a reloader (and Dillon fan) for many years.
I've been an NRA firearms instructor since the 1980's.

I currently teach NRA courses with BAYPROFS (see: http:www.bayprofs.org).
I also teach the occasional Utah CCW course.

I'm a Gunsite graduate, and have taken classes from many other famous and not so famous instructors.

DMG 04-22-2008 12:57 PM

yep, I'm new
 
Great site ya got here. I'm on the wait for my first handgun @ the local outfitter. My wife has already noticed the addiction is beginning. As she put it "you don't even have it in your hands and your already shopping for more."
Picking up an sw99 9mm in a week, but found myself @ Big5 yesterday looking for rounds and had my eye caught by the mossberg 500. After I get permission (not coming soon) for that one next will be a 10/22 for some fun out on in the canyon.

Best regards,
David

gcvt 04-25-2008 9:28 AM

Hi all - just posting up to introduce myself.

I'm just beginning to research building an AR for myself and this is clearly the site to be on!

Current weapons include:
Sig P229 .40
Ruger 10/22
Remington 870

I look forward to hanging out with you guys :cheers2:

Noah 04-25-2008 8:12 PM

Hello
 
Hey all,
I am new to Calguns, and wanted to introduce myself and thank calguns. I live in Northern CA. I have been shooting as far back as I can remember. I learned to shoot rifles on my Fathers 22lr and learned to handle a pistol with a crossman air pistol. I have shot many others over the years and I have recently had my interest in target shooting and firearm engineering/function rekindled when I purchased myself a new shotgun last year. I have been to the range more in the last year than I had in the previous 10 years. Also, I will be teaching my first child to shoot this year and have already begun talking to her about gun safety and the rules about.
Anyways I have been wanting a more accurate rifle that is fun to shoot for the range and I am plan to purchasing a few pistols this year if funds permit. I make blue collar money so I try to carefully concider big purchases. In the process of doing some research on the web I came across Calguns and have found such a great deal of information, ideas, and helpful people on this forum that I thought I better say hi,
AND more importantly say Thank You!

Thanks to the folks who came up with this site! CA is a boon-doggle of laws, lists, and beurocracy. This place meets a great need and gives a wonderful balance of general gun info and talk, with added info and members that live in or are familiar with our laws here in CA. Great idea!
ALSO Thank You! to all the members that have taken there time to answer peoples questions and share the knowledge you have. Thank You.

I found and incredible amount of answers and information to many questions I have had here.
Calguns is truely awesome, THANK YOU!

Noah

USN CHIEF 04-27-2008 2:00 PM

Chief, ricochet.......... thanks for the welcome.

Anna 04-28-2008 10:38 AM

Just wanted to say hi. I've been lurking around this site for a couple of weeks, and I've already learned quite a bit.

I'm a total gun newbie. Am in the process of acquiring my first firearm and my CCW application is already in the final stages (I'm expecting to get my CCW license in the next couple of weeks). Never shot a gun before four weeks ago when I took a CCW class, but then I discovered that I really enjoyed shooting. I also strongly believe in the idea that people should be able to protect themselves, no matter what the legislators in the State of California think.

Thanks, ZombieKiller, I like the name. The many Zombie refferences, I catch in many of the threads here on calguns, always make me grin and laugh to myself. :)
