Hello all! Long time lurker that finally joined, been gaining a lot of info from the site and hopefully I can give back in some way... I even convinced my wife to get her first gun ( Sig 9mm) and pursue her CCW also!

I'm into woodworking, photography and the outdoors in general.

Thanks much, yes, she tested several guns last year and settled on the SP2022 only because we're so limited in things that fit her hands. And she so far prefers a DA/SA gun. Since then, she's been to the range 4-5 times where she also shot an AR! We'd like a smaller sized gun for her to carry, so we're currently looking...
She likes the feel of my CZ PO1, but she can't rack the slide at all.

Welcome NorCal! (I happen to be in far Northern CA, too)

Re: "... we're so limited in things that fit her hands. And she so far prefers a DA/SA gun..."

See if you can find a Kahr P9 for her to shoot. 7 +1 9mm DA pull (light & smooth) same each shot. CA legal.

Default New Member Introduction

Hello Everyone,

I haven't provided a formal introduction.

I am a new firearms owner in California.
You guys may have seen some of my posts regarding my passiveness for using firearms on people in California.

Or my craziness in servicing/fixing/maintaining my Walther P22 CA.
Or my craziness in upgrading/fixing/maintaining my S&W M&P 15-22 on other forums.

My story is that I used to race cars at sanctioned events.
I raced in rallycross, autocross, and HPDE events all across California, including a full day at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

What happened was that I lost $18,000 due to a car that I was racing that broke down in the end. I settled that liability for $10,000 and needed a cheap hobby to satisfy my craving for something enjoyable to do.

So I thought shooting firearms at paper targets was the thing to do.
I hope to learn more from these forums and at competitive rifle/pistol matches in California.

Originally, my decision to purchase a firearm was not with that intent.
But I have decided in the end to just keep it as a hobby and collector's hobby.

Some of my firearms choices came and were motivated by my choice pistol/rifle's in CS:GO. Also I don't own a karambit in CS:GO, and was amazed at how easy it is to get one in real life to add to my collection. Given that they cost $500 in the game on the Steam Market.

You can see what firearms I own here:
https://youtu.be/qjXfI5U7-E4

I own a Walther P22 CA 22LR, and S&W M&P 15-22.
I am also waiting for a $18 shipped Karambit style knife to come to lock with my rifle at home.

I hope to learn more from the others in the forum and appreciate the advice I have already received.

Thanks for the welcome.
