Im going to be moving from Cape to Boston by summer time and am looking for a good town to move to because I don't want to have issues when renewing my LTC. Currently I have an unrestricted class A and want to keep it unrestricted.My license is good till the end of 2015 but I'm just thinking ahead..Any suggestions>>>>

Just an update from New Bedford. Finally had my appointment to submit my application & interview this morning (after waiting since Oct 26th). Licensing officer was all business and asked very few questions. He informed me that the Chief does not 'usually' issue unrestricted licenses to first time applicants, and tried to get me to change my application to LTC-A - "Sporting". I told him that I'd rather not change my application, and that I was hopeful that the Chief would take into account the fact that I've held licenses and owned guns without incident in Missouri since the 80's, and am Treasurer for a non-profit org and a PAC, and though I am a first time applicant here in MA I do have a perfectly clean record of responsibile gun ownership for many years.
He basically told me that I'm welcome to make an appointment with the Chief and plead my case, but that I should expect to be restricted to "Sporting" for my first New Bedford issued license. According to the note taped on his desk, the "Sporting" restriction would allow target & hunting, and "to/from and during outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, skiing, etc.", or in his words "walking the dog". I don't like the fact that their definition of when carry is allowed under the "Sporting" restriction is so vague.
I'm on the fence about whether or not to make an appointment with the Chief and fight for unrestricted, or just wait and see what he does given the letter to him that I submitted with my application. Right now I'm not too optimistic....

Why not make an appt and plead your case?
It's too late after it is issued with restrictions! [It can be done but more hassle and less likely for them to bother doing so.]Mass. Gun Laws By and For Non-Lawyers (How To Stay Legal and Out of Trouble) - Seminar

JakeF, be sure to fill out the Comm2A licensing survey when you do receive your license. It appears that you've been abused and Comm2A is building a file on this kind of stuff. Link here:

I forgot to post after I recieved my LTC. I am from Bridgewater and it took about 5 weeks to hear from the sgt. and have the interview which was very casual he is a real good guy. after about 4 months (mostly due to my error on the app.) I received a LTC no restriction and the sgt. said this is how the new chief is doing the LTC. if you want a class A you get a class A.
