Greetings.

My venture into CALGUNS forum is to learn all I can to protect my rights, while enjoying shooting. This seems to be getting to be a tough bill to fill in CA!

I've put this off for too long. It has been over 15 years since I've done any target practice or hunting, so I know there is a lot to re-learn, and a lot of new stuff to come to grips with.

Hello, US Army veteran out of active duty and looking to put the fun back into California. Still trying to figure out how converting off-list handguns works out.

New guy....have a few BEAUTIFUL guns that I want to sell. My wife contracted cancer, and I damaged my right wrist, so my "recoil management" is WAY down. Any ideas how I can post a rifle, shotgun and handgun for sale on this site?
Your help would be appreciated.

Look at the Marketplace Forum here and post a new thread.
One for the handgun, one for the long guns (separate Marketplaces).
Also suggest reading the rules before posting.

Location and price are required, pics and a description of the condition is useful.

Good luck.

PS: And: Welcome.

New to CalGuns. Grew up in SoCal. Moved east to Maryland, Texas and now am festering in People's Republic of Massachusetts! Have a place in NH though so I can escape the craziness!
I still have family in CA so I have a vested interest in keeping up to date!

Welcome rusbus.

You can post now.

Go where you want and go to: forum tools, then start a thread.

Sell the handgun in the Marketplace.

Read the rules first.

Price and location required.
Pics and a statement on general condition useful.

Good luck.

A sometime lurker, I used to be a member, but being a bit slow I forgot my username and password so I have rejoined. Moving to the Golden State soon so I shall be taking more of an interest from now.

I have shot for a few years ;-) , ex-army, ex-cop, I like IDPA and general pistol work, I've been to Rogers a few times to be abused and be shown how slow I am - best course in the world, even the best learn something about their shooting there.

Greetings! I'm new to guns and very grateful for this forum especially in a State as complicated as CA.

Eager to soak up as much knowledge as I can, and this seems to be a pretty good place to start!

Hello, I am not knowledgeable about guns, but would like to gain the knowledge and skills to support self-defense. When I got divorced about 25 years ago I decided to get a gun for home protection. The store I went to really didn't have any guns that were specifically for women, but the salesman talked me into a Taurus Revolver. It fit in my hand well and I was planning on getting lessons. I did go to an indoor shooting range and had a private lesson from a police officer. I still never felt comfortable with the gun and it has lived in it's case since then. Recently a friend posted a picture of a beautiful Tiffany Blue Glock that I loved, so I read about it and was sure this would be a comfortable firearm for me. I ordered it online and had it delivered to the local gun shop. In the meantime, I found a local gun club to join with a nice indoor range so I was eager to get started and also sell my Taurus. The shop called me to let me know my order was in but the first question asked was if I was law enforcement and since I am not, was told I could not have the gun. Needless to say, I was sad and now have to eat the cost of the return shipping (no mention of the need to be law enforcement on the website, so very poor customer service). I guess California has stringent gun laws compared to other states but I find "the List" hard to shop on as the names mean nothing to me. Is there a list that includes a picture of the gun with a description? Thanks for any help and if I have posted this in the wrong forum, my apologies, please move as needed.

Vamp:
Welcome.
You are close enough for a start.

I suggest you post a new thread in the "California Hanguns" forum.
Tell us basically what you have in mind for a pistol.

I assume the Taurus was not fun to shoot due to recoil.

A typical suggestion is going to be go to a range and rent several choices.
Go to a gun store and put your hands on several as well.

What Glock did you try to buy?
The Glock gun seller is as much or more at fault than you are, they should be aware of CA restrictions.

Reading about a gun or buying for the look is not enough, you need to feel it and shoot it if at all possible.
Get a good gun for home defense, then buy whatever you like for fun.

There is a Ladies Forum here as well that talks about what a lady should consider when buying.

I do not think there is a direct link from the DOJ roster to pictures, but most can be looked up by name then check details.
I suggest you do this after asking us what might work best for your needs.

Where are you located?
There are Calguns monthly shoots in a few places.

Good luck.

Thank you so much, never thought about renting, what a great idea. I was looking at the Cal Handguns so will post there. I am in the Sacramento area. Appreciate your help.

No problem.
Most ranges require that you bring your own gun or a friend with you to shoot for liability reasons.

Hang on to the Taurus until you get your new one.

Check the rental rules in your nearby ranges, some charge per gun, others charge just a one-time rental fee.

Post up a thread to see what range has the best selection of handguns to rent.

Thanks...I am reading the basic guide on here, but saturated already...LOL. Yes, I will keep my Taurus until I get something I like better. I am thinking I should join the gun club in the near future and take a class. I am crazy busy at work so going to take this slow. Appreciate your help.

If I may make a suggestion.

Find a local shop and buy from them. Buying online is not difficult but can take some "advanced" knowledge.

A good local shop/range/club is going to pay off.

Also suggest taking a Women On Target class. The program is 100% fundamentals and safety. A great way to acquire the knowledge and attitude that will help you be confident with your firearm.

Welcome to Calguns and good luck.

Hello everyone!

I'm 34, servicemember and I bought my first gun in 2014, since then I've enjoyed learning about the craft, I hope to start hunting soon and possibly become an FFL down the line.

Cheers!
