Hello. Thanks for approving my request to join. Please don't take it personal that I don't remove the mask after I'm done singing. You can call me Transient, because that's what I am. And, that's all that matters. I'm a military spouse. My wife is active duty. She has orders to San Diego effective August 2020. I'm a veteran, and enjoy my firearms. I use to enjoy working on cars, but it became too physically demanding for somebody with a broken back and a bad left hip. Now I pay somebody to change my oil. I'll just sit at the kitchen table and build my firearms from the frame up. Btw, I'm also a multi-disciplined firearms instructor and have worked with police departments in some of the largest cities in the county in holster retention in hand to hand combat scenarios and use of force of firearms in high stress scenarios.

I'm aware California is "jacked up" worse than 48 other states in the country (Hawaii seems to be the only state that beat California in that race). It was either California or DC. I would've had more freedom in DC, but knowingly requested we take the orders for San Diego. Why? My wife and I are originally from Utah. 11 years of being east of the Mississippi was enough to be done with it. This gets both my wife and I closer to family. After unexpectedly losing my mother to lung cancer in November it was apparent we were too distant with our family members. Mut mother died while I was driving cross country.

I've been reading up on things like how to get a CCW in San Diego (it'll be interesting to see how a resident is defined under the law), importation of firearms, etc. It's clear to me California forgets members of the military are married. My wife isn't into guns. She's a noncombatant. I'm the gun owner in my house. There's no base commander to get a signature from, no denial/approval for me to do a large number of things, etc. Lots of grey area to murk through. My wife and I have maintained our residency in the state we're from during her entire career, and it'll stay that way while we're in California. In 3 years we'll be headed somewhere else, this we're transients.

I'm a firm believer that enemies of the COTUS should be dealt with in an aggressive and public manner, but there's no need for me to dive into that since this a family forum. Just recognize from the outside it looks like the inmates took over the asylum, and I'm pissed off about it. Unfortunately, the disease jumped and went viral, and ended up affecting Virginia.

For the record, I speak directly. It avoids confusion. It's not an act. Please don't be offended by it. Hurt feelings are the result of being direct. I don't enjoy puffing when describing things, so I won't do it to you.

Anyways, I need to get back to figuring out if I should plan a boating accident, or if my firearms self-identify as wall art. Maybe I'll buy some land on the Arizona side of the state line and open an att gallery. I'll talk to you guys later. Good night.


As for the mad mommies suckling from Bloomberg's teet who lurk this forum, I'm still waiting for that gun safety you all keep preaching about. I've heard rumors about trigger locks and safes. I could use several for the protection of my 3 kids. Until you actually provide a gun safety class, get out of the way of the only organization that does -- The NRA.

Sorry but I'm in LA County and can't recommend a place but I'm sure others will chime in. There are also regional subforums that may help.

Hello all, I am relocating from Utah soon and this forum has been very helpful to navigate the very different set of laws here. I have a fondness for the very first types of pistols (hence the name Wheellock); I also like Bullseye competition and a little of everything else. The new home will be Victorville area; I hope to meet some of you in person soon!

Hi everyone! Great site for gun owners. I just moved to CA, so I’m in process to register guns, searching for 10round mags.
I already see some are not available at all, like Xdm 10mm 10 round mag, ugghh.

Some people here are cautious with new sellers with recent join dates and zero I-Trader rating.
Nothing personal, but we do get scammers at times.

Keep in mind that in CA you can only have 5 handgun "transactions" in a year.
To keep that number down, multiple guns can be sold in one transaction.

Make sure that you read the Marketplaces Rules in the stickies section of the Market.

Also, proofread your post before submitting.

I understand,
I did not know about 5 handgun transaction a year. One transaction one person buyer? Or one transaction can be couple buyers?
Is there a scam seller should be aware? I-trader?

I-trader is when you buy/sell/trade with another member.
After, you can each rate the transaction, typically positive.
The rating is to the right of the username bar.

Since DROS in the name of the buyer, I don’t believe you can stack them to separate buyers.
One buyer could buy multiple guns on one transaction.
If you need to be sure, post up the question in “General Gun Discussions”.
Many better legal types will be able to help.

There is a scammer list, but it is far from comprehensive.

I am from Sonoma county and enjoy shooting when I get a chance.(went yesterday)

I have built some AR’s and am looking to connect with other like minded enthusiast.
I am also curious as to how the “positive feedback” works..,as I am looking into purchasing (pistol) from a listing on cal guns. The listing seller will not respond to my message without positive feed back....can you set me straight?

Look at the right side of my username bar.
There is a number 27 next to iTrader.
I have 27 feedback, all positive from buying and selling here.
Click on the number 27 and you can read the feedback comments.

Some sellers and buyers are hesitant with new members, you have no "street cred" shall we say, so they decline under the chance that you are a flake, scammer, etc.
Other members do not worry about it much or may want to get a read on you with a phone call or private messages before committing to a deal.

One way to build up feedback is to buy some items that you want before buying expensive guns, scopes, etc. and get feedback on the deal.
ASK the seller for feedback and give it to them as well.
It is not an automatic process.
Otherwise, be patient and find another seller.

This is the right place for posting new person questions.
Once you want more specific details, post up a question in the forum that applies.

There is a "707" thread here somewhere for folks in your area.

I'll see if I can find it.

Otherwise, maybe start a thread in "General Gun Discussions" forum and say hello, looking for some shooting buddies, locations to shoot/avoid, etc.

Edit 1:
This is not it, but may have some info.

Edit 2:
This is it.

Garv, thanks so much for the info. Really appreciate it. I understand and don’t blame folks for being cautious with the new kid on the block!
I will put some work into proofreading my messages before I post! Thanks!

First post. I have a few rifles but I'm mostly into handguns. I pretty much have an equal number of revolvers and semi-autos and don't really prefer one type over the other but I do prefer the larger calibers. All of my semi-autos are 45 ACP but I have a Glock 22 in 40 S&W on lay-a-way waiting for the thirty day law. Three of my revolvers are .357 magnum and one is .30 Carbine. All of the others are .45 LC, .41 magnum and .44 magnum so most of my posts and replies will be about larger caliber handguns.
I have lived in Southeast L.A. County since 1957 when my family moved here from Springfield, Missouri. To be honest, I would very much like to leave this state since it is nothing like the California I grew up in but I have three children and four grandchildren here so I'm not going anywhere.

welcome to new members. Our rights we need all the help we can get as tehy are greatly under attack and democrats are pandering to every group on every issue from being soft on crime to paying to gender reassignment surgery ( cutting a pecker off to make a vagina) to being soft on crime.

Hello everyone. New to this forum, but not new to firearms. Started out 50 years ago with a Daisy BB gun, been involved on and off ever since. Long time SF Bay area resident, former FFL holder, now retired and living out in the sticks of NorCal. The weather and right minded people in this area keep me here, otherwise the politics coming out of Sacramento would have driven me out long ago.

Just want to say how much I appreciate this resource and all those that contribute to it. And thanks for lettin' me join!
