Hello people. I'm new here and new to buying firearms. I was wondering if anyone can answer this question or direct me to a thread that could. I've been wanting to buy a gun but had a few minor run-ins with the law only here in California. All charges were dismissed though. I've been wanting to buy a gun but wasnt sure if I could so my ffl told me to do a PFEC (person firearms eligibility check). The check came back saying that I was approved to both own and purchase firearms. So Itried to purchase a pistol and a rifle and about 5 days into the 10 day waiting period I got a call saying that I'm on a delay. I got a letter in the mail saying the possible reasons for the delay and it also said that I could get a livescan. Well I'm now 21 days in to the 30 day delay and still no change in status. Also this ffl doesnt release on undetermined. So I guess my question is is when or should I do a livescan and what exactly will a livescan do? Thanks for any help!

Welcome Michael.

There are informational threads here under "How CA Laws Apply To/Affect Me". http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/f...play.php?f=349

Check that out for background, then post up a thread in that section to get the right people viewing your situation.

Often our experts will need a bit of detail on your run-ins to see how much trouble or expense you need to go through to clear up your record.

Some issues are fixing the paperwork, some are "hire a lawyer".

Good luck.

Hello everyone. Long time site lurker. Finally decided to make an account.
Currently only have a CZ 75BD but looking to expand and also obtain a CCW in Riverside county. This site has been very helpful. Thanks!

Thanks Garv,

What’s next? Joined the NRA; now looking to add a more concealable handgun. G19 or 26 or 43, not sure yet. I did rent a G19 last time I was at the range. One fine weapon.

I'm coming back to San Jose after about a decade. Some of the old timers from 2006-2008 might remember me. If you see a younger Asian fellow shooting bullseye or in various positions at Metcalf, that's probably me.

New to the community. I have learned my lessons from past hobbies. Taking it slow and plan on keeping my collection short with 4 or 5 overpriced items. Looking forward to all of the forum shenanigans.

Hi everyone. I've been reading this forum for almost a year and finally decided to make an account. I reduced my felonies to misdemeanors last year under prop 64 to finally get my rights back. I'm currently waiting for my record review to come back, and once I see the reductions on it, I'll be buying a Glock 19. Currently my wife has an AR15 that I built with a kit from Ceratac, that we shoot (she bought the lower after my reductions).First gun I've ever built and it works great. After I get the Glock, I'm going to go for a CCW, in San Bernardino county.

Hello Everyone!

New member here! I've a gun owner for almost a decade and I've learned a lot from reading forums like this one. I'm very grateful for all the knowledge.

I've decided to embark on a couple of firearms projects, one of which is doing more pro Second Amendment outreach to the American Muslim community as well as Asian and Middle Eastern communities and get them involved in the political process. The other projects are more about firearms in general, in the hopes of demystifying firearms and reinforcing firearms safety as well as the hobby aspect.

I hope to use the knowledge gained from you all and pay it forward.

Thanks,

- Mohammad

Welcome AMGO.

If you need ideas for how to get people involved, lots of people here can help you out. Try to ignore the inevitable "It's hopeless, flee california now" and "don't make friends with the anti-2a enemies" comments that people occasionally give when someone talks about public outreach. Most of us here here understand the benefits of public outreach and will be happy to help you.

Thank you both for the welcome!

I certainly understand people's desire to leave. However, I have decided that our fight for our rights is here in this state. I am thankful for all the help I can get.

Thanks,
