      There must be someone else here from MA

      I saw there was no activity in here so here's at least one from MA. Although I'm sure Tom Riley would be more than happy if there was no gun activity in MA!

      An LTC in Canton? Is it an ALP? I thought that was about as rare as hens teeth.

      It looks like your in the market for a Ruger SBH Hunter or SRH Hunter! Maybe even in .480 for all those large and dangerous animals we have here in MA! Oh wait, TK isn't listed in the abstracts, yet.

      Sounds like you need a Blackhawk, I see them used, and quite reasonable around here from time to time. (And no, I don't get a kickback from Ruger, just a Ruger nut )

      Sorry

      I'm with you there. I grew up in Amherst, moved to Westfield, then to Easthampton. Finally escaped 4 years ago to Florida and now have landed in NC. I get dragged back to the PRM once a year for my wife's family reunion. That's as close as I get to ever moving back there.

      Boy, you guys are brutal, what's wrong with MA., everybody is bailing, we have a new governor now that most folks here think is the warm and fuzzy type and will make everything right again.
      Well of course your not going to buy any new Kimbers soon but what the heck you can run down to the local gun shop and pickup an AR before they get put on the list, oh, class B, well skip that, tell me why it was again that you left Florida and moved to NC, any good gun clubs in your area, just curious you know.

      We left MA because we were sick of freezing our butts off each winter and tired of how high the cost of living, mainly property, is. We were married for 4 years, made OK money, and most decent houses were still out of our price range. Unless we wanted to be "house poor" and spend all our income on a mortgage. So we left for FL.

      We left FL mainly because of my son. He has Autism and we didn't really like the programs that the public schools were going to be offering him when he started. So we researched areas and found NC to have some good school programs and we moved. It also didn't hurt that we rode the real estate bubble and made a good profit on our house.

      Gun laws played no decision to move, but I have to say it's nice to be in the South and able to buy whatever gun I want and not have to worry if the capacity is too high or it's on "the list". Also getting a CCW here is pretty easy. There's a decent indoor range not too far from here, but nothing great that I've found. Although I haven't really looked too hard.

      Well it has been a strange winter so far,warm sorta,but things are going to get worse with the new gov. and AG I believe..Not being a doom sayer but all things point to more laws and restrictions..
      They can't enforce the laws on the books now so what good will new ones do but make more hardship to the legal gun owners..
      Sorry about the rant but am stuck here and don't like it at all..Why ?? Well we won't get into that at this time..

      I had to make an unscheduled trip to Western MA a week before Christmas. My father-in-law had a minor stroke (he's fine) but my wife wanted to go see him. She flew up and I drove up with my son since we had plans to go to VA for Christmas. It sucked because I was planning on carrying in VA since they have reciprocity with NC, but since the trip was detoured to the PRM before we headed back down to VA, the guns had to go in the safe for over a week. Talk about feeling naked!

      My advice is ... run away! Get out while you can and before you lose the will to live!

      Another new guy here from western MA. Holyoke-Southampton boarder to be exact. I've been out the game for about 6 years and just started buying again. It was strange to walk into AAA Guns in westside and see the limited selection as compared to that last time I shopped there. Still more guns than anywhere else, but all from a select few brands. Not for nothing, but the new gov doesn't give me either a warm or fuzzy feeling. He is known in the circles I run in as "The Devaluator" refering to the effect his politics have on property value and the "Mass" exodus we are having in our great state. Damn, I wish I never sold my Kimber Gold Match...

      Walther P99 Compact Vs. Smith & Wesson M&P Compact

      I'm about to enter the market for a Compact .40 or 9mm to conceal and carry in the state of MA. The MA Attorney General's Office has recently (MAY 07) allowed Walther P99 Compacts and Smith & Wesson M&P Compact to be sold in the state of MA. I was wondering what any of you would prefer between the two or any other compact pistols.

      Attleboro here

      I am from Attleboro, but live in SD CA for now, Navy. I actually just applied for my class A and will pick it up next time I am home. I see alot of people talk down on Mass, but it is not as bad as CA, trust me.

      Mass hole. No answer for you but a question. Obviusly there have been some changes in MA in the 10 + years since i moved over the border. Didnt know specififc guns now needed to be approved for sale in MA. Where can I find this info? I grew uo in western ma (no not springfield, I said wester lol) and now live just across the border in NY.
      Thanks
