Been in CA since 1962. Old enough to remember a gun friendly conservative state with good schools, good roads and good jobs. My wife and I didn’t have a lot of time or money for shooting while raising 5 kids. But, now we’re making up for lost time.
CA really isn’t as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Just kidding, it really is that bad. Too many friends and businesses have left over the years. We chose to stay and fight. We’re both firearms instructors, (she’s the best) specializing in teaching new women shooters.
Never met a shooting game or gun we didn’t like (except a Bersa thunder 380 and a lightweight Taurus Judge).
