I'm in SF. Bay Area Calguns has been at best haphazardly organized since I've been a member. I'd be delighted to meet other calgunners.

I am interested. I will do what I can to help out, and I am interested in shooting events. I split my time between Concord and placerville, and stay right next to USI when I am here. I have a ton of handloads to test out.

Hello everyone! Long time lurker, finally made myself an account. Early 20's, male. Used to be based in Pleasanton, now I'm in Brentwood (a place, I like to joke, that is on the outer fringes of the Bay Area, Stockton, and Sacramento, but not quite belonging to any of them). Livermore is still my go-to range, but occasionnally I like to go to Federal land. I own a pair of Lee-Enfield rifles, and don't plan on buying any more guns until I move out of the state.

Hello. I'm out in Solano County and finally picked up my first gun (4" Springfield XD) and enjoy going to the range when I can (and when my wallet can afford to buy the ammo). Eventually, I'd like to start getting into IDPA out in Richmond as that's something that's certainly piqued my interest.

Hey everyone,

Sunnyvale resident, Santa Cruz Mountains born and raised, 6 years USMC. I try to go to SCC range as much as I can (can't beat $15 for a full day of shooting), but I'll settle for Reeds if I have to. Markelys in Watsonville is a great standby too.

I'm slowly building my armory, and spending my paychecks, but am adamite about showing each of my 10 guns equal love. Have pipe dreams of a SCC CCW, and will send paperwork in within the next couple of weeks, and standby to wait 2 years to hear nothing back! Going to go for my UT CCW so at least I can cover most of the states.

Hello,

I'm fairly new to calguns. From Solano county and I shoot at Asp, guns fishing, and I USED to shoot st twin sisters. When I'm closer to SF, I go to Jackson Arms. I currently have a g17, mpshield9 and mp40. Just put in my ccw app in April and my appointment is in August. Still a newbie and looking to learn more and take classes.
Looking at new potential pickups: g43, g26 but that pinky bite sucks, or a HK p2000sk . But...I really want a Walther PPQ, HKVP9, or Sig 226 or 229. ����

I am not new to Calguns but I am moving back to CA from NV. I am originally from the Bay but got into guns while I lived in So Cal and met a lot of the So Cal guys through monthly shoots and now we are moving back. I have tasted freedom and due to opportunity and circumstance I am coming back behind enemy lines. SO GET READY CA ME AND MY OFF ROSTER GUNS ARE COMING BACK, hopefully not permanently.

Hi guys! New to Calguns. Dublin resident. Home range is in San Leandro. I only own handguns in 9mm and 22LR. I'd love to begin IDPA soon and meet other range buds off this forum.

West Contra Costa County resident here. New to calguns and fairly new handgun owner. Have a Smith & Wesson M&P 15 sport 1st Gen and a Sig Sauer P226 mk25. Cousin and I will be doing the USPSA match in Richmond the first weekend of July.

Though I think I am more interested in IDPA.

Cool Dave in Pittsburg Cali.....

Hi everyone. Just became a member of calguns. Im Dave. Im in Pittsburg California. Im 40 and just getting into guns. I am looking to get my first gun which happens to be a SIG P320. But unfortunately the roster says nothing about it being sold by a dealer in California. I shot an SP2022 at the range (rented gun) and it felt very nice. I really like the SIG's. Anyone have any input at what I should look for in those style guns? Or where I can find someone selling a P320? Im a noob to all this so please understand.

Hello, any one ever fill out a firearm ownership form. I am stuggling with the date of acquisition question. Some firearms I just don't know.

Hey all. Jumping back into firearm ownership. Sold all my guns ages ago to help fund moving back to California from Georgia.

Was initially planning on an AR, but had a hard time getting excited about the whole featureless thing. Ended up buying a Springfield M1A SOCOM. Ten day wait is killing me. Really looking forward to putting some holes in paper.

Hi all. I'm an Advertising Creative (Graphic Designer and Writer) who lives and works in San Francisco. I grew up in SoCal in the 80's and I recently moved back to SF after two decades in New York City, where gun laws are even worse than in San Francisco ($350/gun for a home ownership permit.. that is if you are even lucky enough to get issued a permit and that's just to store a firearm in your own home. Forget about CC unless you're a cop, politician or celebrity)

I've been shooting pistols most of my adult life but am relatively new to long guns (other than my old Marlin .22LR). My regular ranges are Jackson Arms (pistols) and Santa Clara/Metcalf (AR and shotgun). I just created my first review video for my first shotgun.
https://youtu.be/raLE86wctVc

I'm looking forward to meeting and shooting with other responsible gun owners and CalGuns members.

Hi all, WDL1982, or Walter here.
Born and raised in Belgium, moved to Bay Area for work in 2013. Obtained green card Sept 2017, one day later, walked into a gun shop and bought:
- Sig P226 Mk25 Navy
- Ruger Mini 14
- VEPR AK featureless (grip wrap). The gun shop just got the gun in that day, after it was found in a US warehouse, shoved in the back somewhere, imported pre-ban.

I've been shooting with a few friends and a few times at the rental range, looking forward to owning my own hardware.
Always interested to get to know fellow shooters and learn about good places/ranges to shoot.
Live in Concord, CA, probably moving to Sacramento area later this year. Work in Palo Alto, CA as software license compliance manager.

It seems that we have a lot of people are interested in doing a together or meetup. I know when I was in So Cal, I used to attend the monthly shoot by fellow Cal Gun members out at Burro Canyon and the Firing Line in Burbank. The problem is usually location. Burro Canyon had a lot of space where we could shoot under an RSO, BBQ then eat right on the range. I don't see that happening anywhere here. Even the meetups at the Firing Line in Burbank the range opened up a meeting room to the group to hang out in. I wonder if we could get something going like that here. I believe that would do a lot for morale here for Bay Area Members.

I was at Jackson Arms and I ran into a neighbor who've known for over 10 years and didn't know he was into firearms. I have a group of friends that meet from time to time that participate in may aspects of shooting sports from plain shooting at the range to trap and a lot of us have started shooting local matches. If anyone is interested in meeting up please PM me.
