The new Chief in Pittsfield does issue unrestricted licenses. All of my students who have applied in the last year or more did receive an LTC-A unrestricted."There is nothing more exhilarating than to be shot at without result!"

I applied for my first LTC in Randolph and I was talking to the officer in charge of firearms licensing and he says that he usually gives out restricted LTC-A when someone doesn't have alot of firearm traning/handling. I just wanted to post for other's information. FYI I did get a unrestricted LTC because I do have significant training with firearms.

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
