Hey guys, new to CalGuns and pretty new owner of guns in general though I’ve spent a good amount of time and money at the range already.

Quick question though. When purchasing on this site and people are offering to ship, is there any sort of recourse if they are scams? I see there is a feedback system but would there perhaps be something of an escrow system for shipping transactions?

Welcome, 5amm0.

I personally would only do a face-to-face transaction unless the seller's I-Trader was really strong or the item was of little value.

Welcome 5.

No escrow system.

Buy from established members with high iTrader ratings.

Be extremely careful with new members with zero or low ratings.
There are a large number of scammers that show up.

Face to face meetings with cash is the safest way.

Similar to Ebay if you've ever shopped there in the sense of there is a feedback system. My way of ruling out scams is to see if the person selling you something has good feedback and their post count as typically scammers don't care too much about having either of those 2 in high and good standing.

Nice to be back. Children moved out, getting back into the hobby.
Used to enjoy going to "the firing pin" in West Sac.

Greetings from the bottom of my heart to everyone! This is the topic with which I've decided to start my time here. I stumbled across you when searching for shotgun user reviews and decided to read anything that struck my attention. I decided to join the forum and participate in its activities after a year.

Hi everyone! I found this site about a year ago and checked in and out over the months but finally decided to make an account. Looking forward to interacting with other people who actually like guns inside of Cali!

Default Hi everybody

Hi volks. I'm a total newb here. I've got absolutely no idea about gun ownership . Just shot some rounds at the range. I live in Los Angeles county
and have a green card. I work as an unarmed security guard (independent contractor) and was thinking about getting a gun. I googled and searched the forum for some info. So far I learned that I can have a gun inside my home. It's soooo confusing. Specially the part about having the gun on the job inside my car. Please let me know which thread I should ask these questions or kindly answer them here. Thanks for the community btw.
If I'm on the clock can I have the gun I purchased on me? afaik I need a BSIS exposed firearm permit to to carry but do I need a permit to have it in my car just in case something happens. I mostly watch expensive equipment in trucks parked on the side of the street (public property) and also inside parking lots (private property). Do I need a CCW permit?
Thanks

Welcome ss

You can search in the Concealed Carry section for some of the answers.

Instead though, I suggest you list each of your questions 1 though X in a new thread and let the members provide the discussion.

Some of the allowances may be what your employer will allow you to do so that is up to you to check.
What we say may not fit your employer/employee contract.

Good luck.
