    Qualified my G27 today

    Well, today I went to the range and qualified my 27. California makes you qualify each and every gun you plan to carry and it must be listed on your permit. 10 rds at 7yds in 20sec, 10 rounds at 15 yds in 20 sec, 10 rds at 20yds in 20 sec, and 10 rds at 30yds in 20 sec. I did pretty good and kept a nice tight pattern. But that 27 is so accurate it probably would have done well if I was blindfolded, haha just kidding . Now a trip to the sheriff this week and I will be good to go.

    I just don't get how they expect anyone to ever have to take a shot with a handgun past 15 yards defensively.

    Hmmm...is it just because the state wants people to fail?

    Amazing they want 30 yards!!!

    I mean - it's always great to be able to get good results at longer ranges but seems a bit far fetched going out that far. I shoot 25 yards regularly if doing PPC and way back did a lot of that distance but hardly ''combat'' shooting compared with say 10 yards!!

    Anyways - good on ya - great to get it done.

    I bet if you shot someone at 30 yards they would use it against you in court as being too far away.

    WOW! 30 yards with a 27 is stretching it imho. If it were me the target would have to be the size of a garage door.

    Congratulations on qualifying your new pistol. At 30 yards I'd need a scope to qualify.

    Congrats! However, it is not the State of California that made you qualify like that...it was your Sheriff Dept. The State leaves that up to each issuing authority.

    In my county in Central California, I only had to "qualify" with one weapon (they didn't care which one) even though I have six listed on my permit. There was no round count/time count/distance requirement. My county approved instructer watched my wife and I fire a couple of magazines at 7 yards...saw that we knew what we were doing...and spent the rest of the range time doing combat drills. Very cool.

    You will love carrying in CA though...virtually nobody posts "no guns" signs since nobody seems to think there are any CCWs to "worry" about.

    Seems that the 30 yard deal is a means to put someone in a position to fail. For the average citizen this is a clear setup, meaning that you went to the range and qualified at 30 yards without the adrenaline rush and now when you need to use it in a defensive situation you may very well hit the target but there is more of a chance you may not.

    Thinking of 30 yards and the G27, I participated in an unusual bowling pin match back in 2002. We shot the pins at roughly 21 feet until the last two people were left and decided to shoot the last round at 70 yards (the longest distance available) and the fellow with a G27 won the match. Goes to show that this gun in competent hands can hit the mark.

    Hey, how about that! Someone finally had something good to say about CCW in California. I guess it is true that no one will be looking for concealed weapons since everybody know that nobody carries any.

    California Qualifying test

    Ruger: I was under the impression that Calif. makes it hard to get concealed carry permits, but obviously you passed. If they issue cc permits they why doesn't Calif. recognize the permits of any other state? Is that some of Dianne Feinstein's handiwork? How long does your permit last? (Here in Tennessee it lasts 4 years, and then can be renewed for $50 - so far).

    Any idea what would happen if a person from Tennessee with a permit got caught carrying in California? I love to hike in the mountains alone and want to be armed and protected.
    Any info you can provide would be appreciated.

    It is good for two years. If you got caught and everything was legal, ie., gun registered in your name and you are clear to own it legally it would be a misdemeaner. But check on Packing.org for the real deal. I don't know all of this for fact.

    It is very hard to get one in CA but you have to have a reason. I also live in the county under the Sheriff's jurisdiction. In the city where the chief of pd makes the decision - it is noway.
