Hello Everyone,

My first post here. I wish i could find this forum earlier. I wanted to purchase S&W pre lock revolver and found one on GunBroker. Nice 66 no dash from the first one who only fired couple of boxes only .38 no magnums. Well, since i was new and naive i though that i could have it since i saw few S&W in gun store, so i purchased it, FFL shipped and FFL here told me that i can't have it since it is not on the roster, so i had to ship it back. Now i learn my lesson and know much more about purchasing guns in CA. Hopefully will learn a lot more from this forum and become a contributing member. David.

Hi all, brand new to Calguns. Out four-wheeling this weekend and met some new folks out there. told them about a recent purchase I had made for my first semi-auto pistol. The recommended this site, forums about getting the no stuff. I'm still waiting delivery for my sig. Glad to be here looking forward to learning a bunch of stuff. Future plans are to buy two more handguns and just embrace and enjoy our right to bear arms.

Hi everyone! New to calguns, and new to forums in general. I joined a few weeks ago but don't really know how to contribute given my limited knowledge of guns. However, I thought I'd at least say hi here! Looking forward to learning a lot and hoping to pick up my first gun soon! Cheers!

Welcome Bear.

Ask questions here as needed, that gives us something to talk about.
Be prepared to sift through a bunch of opinions.

What gun do you want to get?
Might either take a while or extra cash considering current supply.
Good luck.

I'm new to this forum. I'm not the class valedictorian........but I'm not the village idiot either. I'm 60. I've owned a little bit of everything from living 56 years in Kentucky. I move to Upstate NY to be close to our 5 grandsons. Things sure are different here than they were in Kentucky......gunwise.

Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum.

My wife and I moved to CA 2years ago and it's definitely one of those best choices. Owned a few guns, not enough, but a few. G34, G17, p229, sp5 and beretta 92FS.

Great site!

Welcome cpdean.

Good start.

Fair warning: If you ask what to buy vs. another, the answer will be "get both".

Welcome J125.

Which Glock?

Good luck in the hunt.
Check the Market often, there are deals or at least "fair" prices once in a while.

Try to pick an FFL that will release on "undetermined" status.

Reading posts and stuff was not so bad, but posting and attaching pictures, that's another story. Very antiquated.

if after 10 days of waiting period and your status is in the limbo (not denied). the ffl can release the gun to you. some ffl will not release your gun in undetermined status that is why it is important to ask the ffl whom you are buying your gun from what is their policy on "undetermined status."

Question for the senior members. I think see some people posting that no one should trust newly joined members or those with low post count or those with some kind of rating. what's this all about? whats the point of joining?
