Hey everyone, nogunz (with PAL/RPAL) from up north here. Just moved to the BA and looking to pick up distance target shooting as a hobby! Any recommendations for how to get started, considering I'm here on visa?

Welcome alad.

Maybe run through this section a bit to get a feel for what goes on.
https://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/...play.php?f=372

If you have a question about visa issues, I suggest posting a new thread here as to what your options are.

I don't know all the abbreviations above, but depends on the visa you are on. If it's an immigration visa, you shouldn't have any problems, if it's not (do you have a local ID?) it will be difficult even to rent guns from a range (I know the one down south didn't even want to rent a gun to someone who had an out of state ID). You best bet in this case would be a friend with a rifle and go to a free in-nature shooting range (either way 'long distance' in a regular range is not that long ).

Dropping in to say hi. As a prospective first time firearm owner, I found the community super informative and helpful. Grew up in a household deathly afraid of guns, but after becoming an adult, I discovered shooting through some good friends who shoot/hunt on the regular. It’s been exhilarating! (I’ll be tagging along on a hunt soon).

Default Just showed up here! Intro

Hi All,

Not sure what is appropriate so hopefully i am not breaking any rules. We just opened our Calguns vendor thread under Ammunition1 in the vendor section. We opened our ammunition store, The Copper Jacket, in Thousand Oaks 6 weeks ago and are new to Calguns. We also just launched our ecomm site servicing Socal with buy online and pickup in store at ammunition1.com. Hopefully you all love it and it can help you out. Response so far has been great.

I am reading through all the forums but wanted to introduce myself and thank you all for creating this space.

Hello there, first post.

I am moving to California (from Texas) in the next couple of months, somewhere around Agoura Hills most likely. I am going through severe cold turkey at the moment as I am selling off some of my toy collection to keep it legal when I get there.......excuse me I just need to go snivel in a corner for a moment.

I now need to figure out the administrative procedure for bringing my pistols and a couple of shotguns over. Oh the masochistic joys of bureaucracy and paperwork.

Thanks for the welcome.

As a civilian nowadays I am mainly a pistol shooter (school of Bill Rogers) and enjoy shotgun (school of Louis Awerbuck, and Rob Haught). But, you know how it is, as a bloke you buy toys, because thats what blokes do. What I have sold off were in no way, shape, or form going to be legal in California. So tragically ( I shall be holding a small service of remembrance in the future ) they had to go to another home.

I am just bringing over a family of Glocks, a couple of Caniks and a couple of Mossy 590A1's.

Hello! I just moved to California from Hawaii due to work. I will only be here for about five years before moving back (never sold my home there so I can go back). After I fully establish residency, I plan on purchasing my first gun. Hope to learn a lot from everyone.
Mahalo!

PS - Yes, I'm a big fan of the show Ted Lasso. Specifically Jamie Tartt because my grandparents are from Manchester, UK.
