Howdy NFG here new to this outfit. Introduced through Marine8541. Looking to replace my P7M8 9MM that was stolen on my way to shot show last month. I have been on this site before, not as a member. Finally joined. Lots of great people and education. I am told if it's out there, you have a way to help find it. Gunner/ Semper Fi

Hello All! With all the California gun drama, handguns falling off the "drop test" list and impending conciseness of our great state's legislation, i figured this was the best place to keep current on all the info!

Hello everybody!

Another FNG here who has been bit by the firearm bug. Just can't seem to get enough guns and ammo.

Just found out about this site from a guy I was talking to at the ammo section at Walmart. So I figured I would join.

Hope to learn more about firearms, and maybe pick up a few more!

Talking Hello and salutations

Just wanted to take a minute and introduce myself and say hello. I'm am Southern California resident been here all my life. Just recently got into firearms. I bought my first gun last year, a Ruger 10/22, and was bitten by the gun bug. In 2 months time I got a Lee Enfield no.1 mk3*, and have started working on an AR15. You could probably guess I like rifles, although I'm hoping to purchase my first handgun this year. Hopefully California repeals some laws or things don't get too stupid making it either hard, or too expensive to purchase something I want.

Other than that I've been married 12 years and am a new father, my baby girl is 1 year old. Hopefully not TMI but there it is... and here I am!

Default hiya

the name's kerry. found this forum while searching for something and decided i should put in the effort and stick around. especially considering i have the free time now. for starters i just recently bought a brand new from the factory savage model 111 trophy hunter edition .300 win mag with the accu-trigger (was in the caliber i wanted so i rolled with it). it's a nice little toy. also currently trying to breathe new life into a pre 64 winchester model 94 .32 spec. but proving to be more work than anticipated.

Hi, thought I'd register and share an experience with a third party 308 upper I finally got to sort of work - but that's for another thread on another day.
Here and now, hello and thanks for past info from this site.

Hello folks!!! New/old-guy from Motown. Checkin in on the west-coast scene, and have a friend in The LA area. I lived with him back in the early 80's.[helped him move out there] Right now, it's about 13 degrees...with about a foot of the white stuff on the ground.

Welcome to calguns,In-n-out. If your trying to sell, go to the home page, scroll down to Marketplace, and click on private ammo sales. I suggest you read the information for new members, also found at the top of the marketplace page.

Hi everyone, I a new member, but been reading a lot of great information from the site. Very amazed how informational this site is and very grateful for being a part of it. Looking forward to speaking with the fellow calgun members and learn as much as I can from everyone. I live in Suisun City (Solano County) and after many years of going to the range I finally decided to purchase one.

Yeah, that's my old prostocker. Winter gives us time to fix all our broken stuff....besides, it makes us appreciate the warm weather.

Hi Everyone, I just registered. Get ready for some newbie questions from me. Please direct me to links or threads since I'm pretty sure whatever questions I have someone has already asked/answered.

Guns I own:
Mossberg 500,
Glock19 (just picked up last week)
A stripped spikes tactical lower (first build in progress)
and I just ordered an xdm 3.8" 9mm

First question: Is there a CA restriction in the kind of 5.56 ammo I can buy?

Thanks,
Chris
