Salutations Everyone! My name is Angel, recently moved from Los Angeles to Riverside County, looking to buy my first handgun and get a CCW as soon as income allows me too. Recently picked up a Maverick 88 Security as my first gun as a home defense gun in the meantime, though it is my first gun I have experience shooting handguns and shotguns in the past, but Iím well aware that I could use some more training and range time before I consider myself properly proficient with it. Only barriers right now are ammo prices and supply still being finicky, hope that changes sooner than later. Been an FPC member for three years now, been keeping up on the 2A longer than that and have voted in every election no matter how small ever since I was legally able to with our rights in mind. Wish I had started owning a gun sooner so I could have started training sooner but it wasnít until 2019 that I started researching a shotgun that would be budget friendly and a quality firearm and by the time I settled on something COVID-19 hit us all like a bag of bricks. Hope you all have a great weekend, thanks for welcoming me here!

Welcome arc

Welcome greeting revoked until the issue with superman21 is resolved.

(I am sure that will be a major penalty.)

Edit: Scammer removed.

Hello. I'm an SF Bay Area native and an inexperienced black powder shooter. There's nothing too complicated to say. I like flintlocks and bought some, the Goex factory closed and all the black powder is sold out for now, and I ordered a pair of percussion guns to shoot with substitute black powder, but one of them I have to build from a kit, and neither has arrived, yet. It's my first ever kit, so building it is going to be an experience, and I forsee having to ask quite a few questions.

Welcome AB.

First gen. yankee from Ontario parents.

If you have any good stories of what it’s like to buy your own guns in Canada nowadays maybe start up a thread in “general can discussions” so we can have something to chat about that’s new.

Hi everyone! I've been reading these forums anonymously for a while as this is an excellent source of information. After hearing about the off-topic forum from a friend, I finally decided to finally join. I was born and raised in California, and I'm glad to see a community of people who aim to protect it. Thank you all.

Welcome. I recommend getting the Tapatalk app and liking your Calguns forum to it. Looks more like your Facebook wall than an old school forum. Easy way to find you way around.

Hello everyone my name is Sahand. I have been lurking for a while and my coworker finally convinced me to join. Just want to thank the forum at large for the breadth of knowledge that has been made available here. I havenít been active on a forum since my early car enthusiast days but I hope to be a positive contributor.

Thanks!

Hello all,

I have been a lurker for a while and recently joined up. This forum has immense information on pretty much everything from CA firearms to anything 2A related which I visit all the time. I am in the SGV area and my hobby is to grow my collection. Great to see a big community here, we need to band together.
