Default Teach me how to build & modify AR-15ís / Shooting Buddy (Sacramento Region)

I am new here to Calguns.
I am new to firearms.
I have specific interest in the AR-15 platform
I have interest in handguns as well.

I grew up around firearms as a child and would like to rekindle that spirit as an adult.

Hopeful to find someone who wants to either learn to together and is new to this all just like me, or someone with experience that is patient and understanding and wants to share their love/ experiences/ knowledge of firearms to someone new to it all.

***(UPDATE)***
I am Specifically interested in someone who can teach me how to build my own AR-15 and to do upgrades and modifications to one that I am purchasing here very soon (1-2) weeks.

(Iíd prefer to meet up in person for this so it is easier to learn, Iím definitely a visual learner)

If you think your willing to. Meet up, hang out, make a new friend or just looking for a shooting partner, please PM me. More than happy to exchange contact info and go from there.

Welcome!

Lots of seasoned folk around here with way too much info floating around in our brains.

I’m a girl, so I’m nicer, in general, so if you wanna run questions by me first so you don’t have 18 men telling you you’re stupid, I’m okay with that. I have a “backstage pass,” to gun knowledge. I don’t know everything, but I know how to get answers.

(Italian accent): I know a guy.

Sending you a PM. I like to practice a lot of rifle and pistol drills, and I like to train often. If you’re interested, let’s go shoot sometime.

Welcome to Calguns. It's great that you're learning how to build your own AR; it's a great way to familiarize yourself with how the AR works. Before you start putting on accessories and gadgets, just make sure to familiarize yourself with CA AW laws, specifically 30515. Other than that, have fun customizing.

Oh yea Iím familiar with it, I already know Iím going the maglock route so I can have as much evil as I want haha. Minus grenade launchers haha.

Definitely going centerfire AR-15 platform based.
Juggernaut Hellfighter Kit all the way (whoop whoop!)


AR-Pistols Laws are are too much in the grey area and the risk does not outweigh the rewards.

Maybe a couple projects or years down the road when Iím more comfortable and have 2a attorney guidance, legal advice, and representation Iíll go that route. I do want to eventually have an AR-Pistol with that 300 Blackout so it goes BOOM! Haha you can probably see my enthusiasm for my new growing hobby now.

Who? Men? Or Italians? I usually like Italian men, well, except Fredo Cuomo, of course.

Weíre doing alright. How about yourself?

No not at the moment Iíll be picking up a complete set up. This coming week. Looking to do some modifications to it, nothing overly extravagant, however it would be nice to have someone walk me though it and show me.
I am typically free (Thursday-Sunday), Sunday are hot and miss so not always Thursday. Please feel free to me a PM and we can exchange contact info.
