Default How to leave/recieve feedback for sales

Hey guys, I've been on Calguns for a while but have never done any transactions. I just sold a Lower Build Kit and was wondering how the other guy leaves me feedback. Will also help when I buy so I can do the same. Thanks!

Have the Buyer go to the sale thread and click on the "0" in your iTrader, right side of page across from your username. This will take him to the iTrader page for you and allow him to leave feedback. Remember to have him copy the address of the sale thread.

New here, lived in Cali (Livermore) now for 4 years.

2 Ruger 10/22's
Moss 500 shotgun
38 special revolver
just ordered
Colt 6920LE and a Remington 700 5R

Looking for fun shoots, plinking, friendly comp with similar guns. Nothing like going out in the back woods with friends and having a little .22 shootout. The playing cards/poker at 100 yards is a blast, as well as tic-tac-toe...


Great sight, lots of info. Thanks!!!

Nate

New here. I've lurked a little before. I'm from way up in NorCal (almost Oregon). Been hunting and shooting all my life but recently I've become interested in AR's, so I joined up.

I'm heading to Redding on Saturday to do some looking around for one.

Another newbie... researching AR topics before building one.

It's shocking to me what I could do as a kid with a rifle (not in CA) that kids can't do today.

I'm glad there are places like this to help me navigate through the weeds though.

Hi to all
My name is Rod but to you all I'm katranch. I spent many a day trying to figure out what our lovely state had decided they would let me call my very own. I went from one gun manafacture catalog offerings to the Ca. approved list, back and forth I went trying to match letters and numbers and getting very frustrated. Than I found Calguns and the clouds parted. I found at this web-site the answers to my questions. I cant thank you guys enough for providing to me what I had been looking for.

Default Noobie, newbie. new guy, SORTA KINDA

Returning to the United States after serving 21+ years with the U.S. Department of State as a Foreign Service Officer (Information Management), preceded by a 20+ year career in the Marine Corps (retired as a Master Sergeant in 1988), I've landed back in California with my small collection of firearms.

Wow, how things have changed in the US - read, California's very restrictive gun laws. Back in the day, I had an easy to obtain FFL (expired), and honestly speaking, got it only to get a better deal on firearm and ammo purchases, and to help a friend open up a gun shop - back when outfits like Shotgun News and other sale points were doing business in print. Clearly, those days are long gone.

In today's terms, I'd like to give a 'shout out' to CALGUNS.NET for those of us that live in California; for their running/working/managing this great website for regular folks like me - and, all of the recreational shooters, occasional buyers over the Internet, collectors and in general. advocates of the 2nd Amendment. Kudos.

Talking Hi. Newbie Here.

My name is Bonnie. My husband, is a gulf war Marine. I have never owned any guns but my husband has inherited a gun collection and I will eventually inherit one from my WWII Army vet dad.

We are in the process of moving and doing a major remodeling on a house, so unfortunately we have no space to store the collection safely (with vendors in and out). So I have a couple of questions for ya'll and I am not sure which board to post them on. If you can advise I will make sure I post them in the appropriate boards.

Q1: Can anyone recommend a few good places for appraisals in the Bay Area?

Q2: What is the best way to transport the guns when I am driving to an appraiser? I am not sure what the laws are in California. Is a cardboard box in my trunk sufficient?

Q3: If I take photos of the guns and type up all the details is it possible to get an appraisal online?

Q4: If we choose to store them in the Bay Area or in Los Angeles, are there companies that offer secure storage for a reasonable price that anyone can recommend?

Q5: If we choose to sell them, which is the better place to get a good price, Los Angeles or the Bay Area.

Thanks in advance for instructions on where to post.

-B.

Unsure Sorry

Q2: What is the best way to transport the guns when I am driving to an appraiser? I am not sure what the laws are in California. Is a cardboard box in my trunk sufficient?
Unloaded in cardboard box in trunk is sufficient. Trunks count as a locked container although glove boxes do not. Cardboard boxes should work to fufill the new "fully enclosed" law See more here: http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/Transporting

Q3: If I take photos of the guns and type up all the details is it possible to get an appraisal online?
Wouldn't be official but we have some very knowledgeable members here that could give you pretty good appraisals for free. Please give photos of each and mention any and all markings found. If they are older guns then the C&R forum might be your best bet

Q4: If we choose to store them in the Bay Area or in Los Angeles, are there companies that offer secure storage for a reasonable price that anyone can recommend?
Unsure sorry

Q5: If we choose to sell them, which is the better place to get a good price, Los Angeles or the Bay Area.
Both should be about the same
Thanks in advance for instructions on where to post.

Hi All!

Just retired from our local police department after 33 years of service. 8 of those as the Department Rangemaster.

Life member NRA and CRPA

Recently came into possession of a few samples of legendary shooter, teacher and gunsmith F. Bob Chow's work. Of greater fun was spending time, albeit too short, chatting with he and his wife a few years before their passing. What a cute couple!

Sharing my love of shooting with novice friends. One who is still recovering from a stroke. I am trying to see if basic bullseye shooting can enhance the reconnecting of synapsis of the brain.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

And to everyone on the list - a Very Happy Thanksgiving!

Rod

Default Retread!

I joined CalGuns about a year and a half ago (March 2012), but misspelled "MountainMike"! I GOT the name I misspelled (MoutainMike) and for the longest time could not figure out "why" I could not sign-in again.

Now I have another name, and want to "merge" the old name with the new name (MountainMike7) and carry on.

Oh yeah, Wal-Mart sold me 300 rounds of .22 LR ammo today - first .22 LR I have seen in over a year at a reasonable price, including online retailers, too!

I hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving, too.

Mike

Thanks for the welcome! I'm excited to join in on all the information and advice the forums have to offer. I am currently looking for a gunsmith in my area. I have a Winchester model 70 (circa 1958) in 30-06 cal that needs some magazine work. Cheers!

My parents have been sillouette shooters for as long as i can remember and i did it for a while also but lost interest when i learned about girls lol.Well now i have children of my own and am teaching them about gun safety and laws and thought this forum would be a great place to get info.I am also interested in learning about other types of shooting comps or activities llike 3gun or anything of that nature. Meeting new people/families to play with would be great too =)

New here from Bakersfield.

I'm a hardcore Striper fisherman in the warmer months, plinker/light hunter in the cooler months.

Stumbled upon a cheap lower AR from neighbor and found the site looking for uppers, and or upper advice.

Thanks and great site here.. Way more strict on member behavior than the fishing sites! LOL

Hi All,
I joined up after lurking and reading the forums. I'm an old guy that has been shooting since I was a boy back in North Dakota in the 50s. I retired and live in Tehachapi and enjoy going to our range here and punching holes in paper with my AR15 and AR10. Still have my first gun a single shot 22.

Hello everybody,

I'm in the city of Los Angeles and have been doing some tactical handgun and shotgun training, got the bug to move on to tactical rifle, and decided to build a semi auto 223/556. But am I ever so glad I was pointed to this site-- there's a lot to consider and MUCH caution to take. Yikes! Thanks to you for such a valuable resource, and thanks to God for guiding me to you.

Hi all,
I'm new to the site. I'm finally out of school, working, getting used to the house payment and so have some money for guns and hunting. Just taking hunters safety in a few weeks and looking for something that could possibly take down a pig or dear. Looking for advise, maybe something used.
I grew up shooting, but my father hated guns. I really enjoy them and want my kids to understand how to use them safely. Oh and I can't wait to get out on my first hunt.

Was a member (only a few posts though) here a while ago, but for the life of me I can't figure out what my username or email used was. Always great information on this forum. I'm in LA, have a 1911, a SW revolver and looking to get a browning 22 lever rifle for cheap target fun...hope to be part of a meet in the future.
