I had a chance to shoot the Fostech Origin 12 shotgun at the IraqVeteran8888 2015 Range Day a few months back and had a great time seeing how quickly I could dump a 30 round shotgun drum.

San Francisco's last gun shop, Highbridge Arms, has closed after years of anti-gun pressure from local and state politicians. The final straw that broke the camel's back was proposed legislation by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors which would have required firearms and ammunition transactions and personal data be handed over to the San Francisco Police Department. The invasion of privacy and additional overhead costs became too much for the store to handle.
Highbridge Arms expected to lose customers to neighboring gun shops outside city limits where customers would retain their privacy. There was no explanation how this invasion of privacy would have helped decrease crime in our city. This is the real travesty. Anti-gun politicians pursuing an agenda that won't have any effect.
Last week I picked up my last batch of firearms from Highbridge Arms, a fantastic collection of Mossberg shotguns.
I am thankful for all the years of support Highbridge Arms provided me and my career. While I'm generally an optimistic person, I'm pessimistic that any new gun shop will open in San Francisco any time soon. Now that Highbridge Arms has been removed as an obstacle for the Board of Supervisors, I won't be surprised when new anti-gun legislation is introduced to target individual law abiding gun owners within city limits.
San Francisco is supposed to be a city for people from all walks of life. Especially those who are considered on the fringe of society. Law abiding gun owners abhor the gun violence in our cities and communities, and it takes the gun community acting as a collective whole to make our goals clear. We want safe communities for our children, our families, and friends. This is actually a goal that both pro-gun and anti-gun people share. Let's focus on the criminals and the mentally ill as a way to prevent the next gun crime from occurring.
Bay Area friends! I'll be teaching an intermediate pistol course this coming Tuesday, November 10th at Bullseye in San Rafael, CA from 6-9PM.

I was recently featured on Al Jazeera America TV talking about how San Francisco is losing its last gun shop, which is my home store.
I'm very sad to lose Highbridge Arms to an anti-gun agenda, hear more about this situation in the video below.
My friends over at AllOutdoor.com have written an editorial piece on mass shootings which I think is a good read. Here's a blurb, and if it tickles your fancy then you can click through to read the full article.
Every time we have a mass shooting, both sides of the gun debate follow the same script. The anti-gunners come out in full force, waving the latest bloody shirt and blaming the tragedy on the NRA, the second amendment, guns, and gun owners everywhere. They’re not grasping at straws or flailing about looking for targets of opportunity; they know exactly what they want. They have a list of specific enemies that they use the tragedy to smear, and they have a specific list of legislative proposals on file that they immediately begin introducing in state legislatures.
RECOIL Magazine really gets it in their article titled "The Second Amendment is for EVERY American."
Here's a choice snippet:
That Second Amendment is for EVERY American. That’s a true story, regardless of your personal opinion on any LGBT issue. Pro-gun individuals come in every shape, size, background, sexual orientation, faith, creed, political affiliation…you get the point.
The video the article refers to is a piece by The Guardian where I'm one of three gun owners featured. Check it out!
Eugene Volokh writes an interesting article for The Washington Post asking a great question. Find out the answer in his informative write-up:
Fox News contacted me regarding my home gun shop in San Francisco closing. Here's a snippet of what I had to say:
“This is yet another piece of thoughtless, superficial, anti-American, anti-gun legislation that is a dangerous threat to our freedom and Constitution,” Chris Cheng, winner of The History Channel’s Season Four TOP SHOT, and a San Francisco resident, told FoxNews.com. “High Bridge Arms, like many gun shops around America, was a place for well-to-do folks to gather and talk shop about firearms and freedom.”

Hear Chris Cheng on NRA News from Wednesday, September 23rd where he talked about San Francisco's last gun shop closing as a result of onerous anti-gun legislation proposed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
It could have a chilling effect and deter other gun stores from trying to open up not only in San Francisco, but in cities across the country. The train of thought here is that many cities take cues from what other cities are doing, and so we could see LA, NYC, Chicago, and other cities consider similar legislation and create a more hostile, anti-gun environment.
Cam and Chris also talk about how San Francisco is creating a "Minority Report" type of pre-crime environment where the police and politicians try to predict who is going to commit a crime based on how much ammunition they purchase.
