    Here is a town list, type your town and the color and someone will make the edit. Although we will do our best to keep this list accurate and updated as always your local issuing officer has the last say. This list is compiled from the experiences of NES members. Remember we don't know everyone's full story, so take it for what it's worth.

    When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are undisturbed. Luke 11:21

    When you are dead, you don't know you are dead. It's difficult only for others. It's the same thing when you are stupid.

    Ok, everyone in North Attleboro that I know...they only put ALP on thier app and they've all gotten it, including myself.

    So I would say that we're green as well.

    Maynard renewed me ALP no problem all the time ( July 2004 and it's still the same chief and SGTs) but I have no idea of new applicants.

    First, a request: can the folks supplying their experience state when it happened? It would be good to know how up to date the data are.

    I had no trouble in Bedford. First license, no extraneous crap required, and the only reason I listed was "All Lawful Purposes". This was in January 2004.

    Well, just renewed in April and still only listed ALP. So I would say pretty up to date for North.

    I got my LTC-ALP last December, first try, first time applying.

    Oh -- my sister got hers in Hubbardston -- ALP -- so Hubbardston is green also.

    Bolton First application in the town must meet with the chief.

    My Very first LTC under the Chapter 180 rules came from Acton (I was so lucky to have my old one expire at just the right time. At that time Acton was Green and the License Authority said that to keep things simple it was Class A ALP or nothing. Things might have changed. BTW, that first LTC was number 103.

    Before that I was in Ashland, but Tom Kinder was my Football coach, and Robert Gonfrade used to hang out and hunt with my best friend's dad. (^_^) Kinda made the whole license thing a moot point. (^_^) So glad i'm not in that town now, I hear that Melnik is as corrupt as mumbles.
    A clip is not a magazine, a mag is not a clip.
    Neither is a grip a stock, and "stock" does not mean grip.
    A bullet is not a cartridge, nor is the converse true.
    Folks should be more careful when they use the words they do.
    A revolver has a cylinder, but only one you see,
    and cylinders have chambers, five or six most commonly.
    I do not wish to nitpick, but improvement would be seen,
    if we could bring ourselves to say exactly what we mean.

    - Lieutenant Colonel John Dean "Jeff" Cooper
