Been to the forum a couple of times to look up information. Just thought it was about time that I officially sign up.
I was put on to the pew scene by all the great information Reno May put out, and I really appreciate all the great information everyone provided here.

I went from having nothing to a CA7 and two p/w 13.7" Aero/Ballistic Advantage builds.

Default Welcome to Calguns!

Hey guys, decided to join after my frustration on finding CA legal handguns for sale on gun broker and the insane 30 day buying period for new ones. Been an outsider gun enthusiast for a long time and Iím finally in a position in my life where I can purchase fire arms without any spousal or family drama.

Hi all! I was introduced to this site by a local shop where I received my first firearm recently. Looks like a great community so I look forward to learning and maybe contributing at some point.

I've been somewhat of an enthusiast for decades. Shooting since early high school days or maybe a bit earlier but never got around to owning my own until now.

One of my favorites that has stuck out in my mind since the first time I shot one is the Sig P226 (specifically the .40). Because I now have a family to think about, I finally decided it was time to buy one last year and ordered one but waiting since. I now learned that it seems like Sig has stopped producing the 226 in .40 so I may never get my order which led me here. I really hope I can get the 226 .40 at some point but if the shop can deliver the 9, I can learn to "settle" for that but no hurry. I will be learning more and testing out the AR-15 I have in hand so that should keep me busy for a while.

Welcome S IV

Head over to the Want To Buy (WTB) marketplace and place an ad.
Be careful, a number of scammers have been showing up recently.

226 in .40 shows up once in a while, but nothing wrong with one in 9mm either.

When in doubt, we usually suggest getting both. (Only partly seriously)

Thanks Garv! I've been browsing the sales section and there one poster there who has a few listed but he seems to have some requirements that I've never seen on a for sale ad so I might just wait and see how it goes.

Both sounds great but more practically, I might want to put the money towards something different like a shotgun. Then I'll have rifle, handgun and shotgun and have most bases covered, lol.

Thanks Barang! Yeah, it just feels right to me when I shoot it. I'm sure it's something I can get over but you know how it goes when you get your sights set on something.

As for the .40 Sig news, I think there might even be topics about it on this forum but if you look at their website, there are no longer any .40 versions of any products listed.

yeah! i remember when i was on a hunt for all stainless sig, kept checking the market section and gunbroker until one popped up on gunbroker (.45) first then calgun's (.40) market section. bought a couple of p229 .40 here on calgun's too so it's another option to you for your future buy. just be patient and keep checking everyday.

you're right! went to sig website and no more .40 line up.

Welcome new guys.

Agree, if you are patient, even random and odd rare items will show up FS, and sometimes they are priced below market

Hello!

Been reading the forums for a while now and decided to make an account since I purchased a Glock 19 recently. Although I'm new to all this, I hope to learn a thing or two from all of you.

I've been thinking about various AR-15 platforms, but with everything sold out or marked up, I might just build one. Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks.

Welcome, Rocket. I definitely think you should build (or assemble) your first AR. Maybe consider buying a complete upper and doing the lower yourself.

hello and welcome r463.

watch youtube on how to assemble ar-15 and see if you're comfortable enough to build your own. that's what i did, watch couple of them until i was confident enough to do it.

Default Howdy!

Calguns has been quite a helpful forum in the past, with good accounts from the common folks. Lots of useful info here has helped me understand these difficult California laws. Here's to hoping we can come up with strategies to make it better. Down here in San Diego, the SDCGO have made some great progress, for which I'm quite grateful.
