    Hi all. I grew up in NJ, moved to CA last year, and relocated to Portland last weekend to start a new job after being unemployed for ~10 months. Really excited to finally be living in a free state.

    Welcome to Oregon, but make sure to speak out to those who want to make us less free. Remember to vote down anti-freedom laws.

    Will do. One thing living in CA has taught me is to contact my representatives regularly to make my views known about any pending firearms-related legislation.

    Welcome. Remember to get rid of the CA plates so you get the finger less. ;)

    Make sure to join the Oregon Firearm Federation, they do a solid job at keeping people in the loop.

    :thumbup: They also do a good job either lobbying or getting people to communicate with our legislature. I believe without them we might have seen a number of bad gun laws pass.

    Thanks, really glad to be here. What's sad is that between being unemployed and the political climate down south, I haven't been shooting in several months. Felt good to re-install a normal magazine release button on my rifle - I finished building it in NJ in early 2012 and had to cripple it when I moved out west. Until now, I've been too disgusted with it to shoot it much. No EDC yet, but I do plan on taking some classes and applying for my CHL once I get settled.
