Happy New year and Hello from Santa Cruz (on the Monterey Bay), California.

I'm originally from Montana and moved to Cali in 1972 after serving 3 years in the military (U.S. Army).
I'm not a "Brand" fanatic - I love most types of rimfires and own both longguns and handguns including Rugers, CZ's, S&W's, Savages, & others.

Thanks,

Bruce

Welcome to RFS Bruce.

Some warm California sunshine would be really nice right about now. Where I live it warmed into the 50's yesterday, rained and melted all the snow, and then the temp dropped like rock over night. I woke up this morning to 15 deg temps and the stomach flu. Hooray!

I look forward to seeing you around the site.

Welcome to RFS Bruce. Sounds like you will fit right in here at our friendly little forum. I am not a brand fanatic either. As long as it says CZ on it I don't care what model it is. :D Ok I just may be a little tiny bit partial to the CZ brand, but I do own a couple other brands also. Welcome to the site.

Happy Shooting!!! Chance...

Welcome CH....,
Love the Montery Bay area... always thought if I won the lottery I'd like a winter place on the other end of the bay in Carmel Posted Image . Wife has a brother a few miles north of you in Saratoga.

Thanks all,

It's raining & in the mid forties - no sunshine 'til April here.

Yep, spent some time "on the skids", crewed Chinooks & Hueys for Uncle Sam.

And just so you know, I purchased my first CZ (452 Special) a couple of years ago. Now I have three of their rifles & one of their handguns.

Welcome, there are not many from the Left side of the country, they dont treat us any different, even though we have to live the with strange laws we do.

This forum does like their CZ's, I should say We like our CZ's, but I only have 2 :D

Maybe I don't want a "winter home" there after all? I've only been there in the spring or summer. I remember stopping down the coast at Pismo Beach one time... cold, cloudy and rainy, asked the guy at a convenience store how long the weather had been like this... got a funny look on his face and said, "I've been here 3 years and it's been like this most of the time.".
