California Root Borer

Hi Lucas,
You have encountered a California Root Borer,
Prionus californicus, a member of the Longhorned Borer Beetle subfamily Prionini.  There are sixteen known species in the genus in North America that look similar and you may read about them on the BugGuide information page for the genus.  Your specimen is a male as evidenced by his well developed antennae.  The males are frequently attracted to porch lights.

thank you i appreciate the speedy reply, i guess i have never seen them before 🙂
