    Man I hate that state! I am so glad I don't have to live there any more. I was finally gonna bite the bullet, shell out my $100 PER YEAR, jump through all the hoops, and apply for the out of state CCW permit so I could carry on my annual trip up to liberal la-la land for the wife's family reunion. But now they've made the change that not only do you have to have taken a safety course, but it has to be taught by a Massachusetts Certified instructor. Give me a break! What instructor outside of New England or New York is going to bother getting Mass. certified? Looks like they're succeeding in the "If we can't ban guns outright, we'll just make possessing them damn near impossible" game.

    From The Berkshires!!!!

    Well I am way out here in the Berkshires!!
    Most people I run into think Springfield is the end of Mass. but there is more out here.
    I got mad at the $100 renewal back in 2005 or so. I let my LTC laps.
    Now I decided I should get it back & protect my rights!! Well I had to take the Basic Pistol Safety Class.
    I wasn't happy about taking the class, but I did and was not sorry.

    I got to meet some great people, found a firearms dealer I did not know was within 10 miles of me. I was able to shoot a variaty of pistols as well.
    I then rejoined the NRA and started looking at these forums.
    There is a lot of stuff out there. I will keep watching this one for more Mass members.

    I'm sure that most legal handgun owners are here in Mass. (rolleyes)

    We can't buy a weapon, we can't buy ammo...

    One if by land, two if by sea...

    TADA! I'm outta' here.

    Maine awaits.

    I just found this forum.

    Hi, I'm from Mass too. I didn't know HandgunForum even existed until I stumbled upon it this evening. I like the way it is set up and organized. There seem to be a lot of interesting posts that I am looking forward to reading. I'm in Plainville. I have some Walthers which I like because they all fit my hand really well. I like Glocks too but I have trouble gripping them so I sold my Model 22 (.40) because I skinned my thumb knuckle every time I shot it. And of course some S&W revolvers.

    I am a safety instructor and have helped many people get their permits. The more I teach, the more I realize I don't know, but that's good. We're all in a growing process to make ourselves better shooters and better people.

    I'm going to see if I can get some more Mass. people to check this out and join.

    I successfully escaped from MA a bit more than a year ago.

    Left partly for the weather, I actually like snow, but I hate the wet icy shyt or the multiple of damn cold rain instead of the snow everyone freaked out of for the last week, so I can't buy toilet paper or milk if I need to buy it for something other than hording. Atleast in SD we get snow, we know how to drive properly, and no one goes into apocalyptic survival mode. If it bothers you that much, get a snow blower and some ice melt.

    The politicians there have always disgusted me. How do a bunch of private school educated liberal layers know what the people of the state need and want?

    Even the towns were a pain. I someone wants to put up a shed, garage, or fence, they have to go to town hall and get a bunch of paperwork. Here if you want to put up a fence, go to where ever you buy lumber for the posts etc, and start digging some holes. Biggest dilemma is the decision of whether or not you need to pick up a case of beer for your weekend project.
