It's a pretty save bet

Assasin Bug?
I'm not an expert, but looks a lot like Rasahus thoracicus (Western Corsair) to me:




Nice looking bug, Natalie -- what a treat to see! If my guess is correct, yours would be the first submission for this species from CA.

 
Thanks!
I'll move it over to the Rasahus page for now and hopefully someone will be able to assign a definite species name for it.
