  1. Ball Ammo

    I've been shooting for years and usually just grab ammo when I need it and get whatever brand I can find at the store I happen to go get it. Recently I have been lightly reading posts about unclean ammo, steel & aluminum casings, etc. and has gotten me thinking about what I am putting through...
  2. NRA Course for CT Non Resident Permit

    As I understand CT requires a 10 hour course and at least 50 rounds of live fire to qualify for the CT Non Resident permit. In MA I am seeing NRA courses that are only 8 hours. Anybody have a lead on where I can get this course to fulfill the CT requirements somewhere in southeast MA?
  3. Confirm if correct or educate me please

    Found this in CT Law: No permit or certificate is required to buy, possess, or carry long guns. But people cannot possess them, if they (1) were ever convicted of a felony or serious juvenile offense, (2) cannot legally possess firearms under federal law because they have been adjudicated as...
  4. Stainless Maintenance

    Bought my first stainless steel gun (P220 Elite) and had a question as to what to do and not to do regarding cleaning and storage. Just do the same thing as you would with a blued gun? Or is there some other precaution I should take with the stainless?
  5. Shotguns 101

    I hate to start this kind of thread because sometimes it is viewed as the OP being lazy or inept in trying to learn about something. So at the risk of being ostracized I ask the many knowledgeable NES members to clue me in. I have neither held nor shot a shotgun in my life, but I want one. I...
  6. H&K P2000

    Considering one of these for my next pistol purchase. I have the USP40 and love it. Anybody have a P2000 they could give me some feedback on? Maybe a comparison to the USP or general range report. Sucks they are $1200+, IF you can find one in MA, but hey, love the H&K...
  7. Scopes - Expensive or cheap?

    I need someone to explain to me why a more expensive scope is worth the money before I sell mine. I am asking because I bought a Leupold Mark 4 1.5-5x20mm MR/T M2 from LaRue with their mount. I used it on my AR15 and liked it, I am getting some good grouping with it. Then I got a Ruger...
  8. Ruger 10/22

    Just looking to get opinions from Ruger 10/22 owners out there. I will be picking one up in the near future and wanted advice as to whether I should get the standard barrel or the bull barrel. I will only be buying one, now and forever. I do not plan on attending Appleseed, not sure if that...
  9. SIG 556 Barrel Work

    Has anybody with a MA compliant SIG556 threaded the barrel and added a compensator via a gunsmith? I have heard from a non-gunsmith that the barrel steel may be too hard to do so. I have called a couple gunsmiths, but they have not done such work on the SIG556 and do not know enough about them...

    Which is the better everyday 100-200 yd range ammo?
  11. AR Upper & MA Compliance

    I endeavor to build my own AR from parts. I'm a confused AR newbie with a question about MA compliance. Is it true that I could order say an upper from LMT that has the evil features such as bayo lug and flash suppressor and have it shipped to my MA residence since the upper is not...
  12. 200 yd + Ranges in Southest MA

    Is there a list somewhere I can refer to? Anybody know off hand? Thanks!
  13. My first optic has arrived...

    I have had a Colt HBAR for years and have not fired it in like 8 years and it is the only rifle I've ever owned. Recently I got the AW fever and picked up a SIG 556 and more recently a S&W M&P15FT. My optic just arrived I originally purchased for my SIG, a Trijicon TA31ECOS. Now this has as...
  14. Federal AWB vs MA General Laws

    In MA, what other restrictions would be imposed on us should the same federal AWB be passed again? I had always assumed that MA General Law pretty much covered what the AWB covered. Coming from NH less than a year ago plus me only owning one AR-15 (Colt HBAR) that I bought before the AWB in...
  15. Please help me, say it ain't so...

    First off I'll admit I am a through and through SIG Man with H&Ks as 'backups'. I own the P229 (.40) and P220 as well as a USP 40 Full and Compact. I had never shot anything but .40 and .45 handguns and also own a Colt 1911. That's it for pistols. The SIGs and H&Ks have always felt good in...
  16. Concealed Carry

    I have always mulled over the idea of when/when not to carry a concealed weapon. My personal take on it is quite simple and wanted to hear from others whom carry a concealed weapon. I think that the only decision to make is the most basic, carry or not. If you choose to carry a weapon, then...
  17. Beretta Thoughts

    Anybody have thoughts on the Beretta 92FS vs 96FS? Aside from the 9mm vs .40 S&W and associated round capacity argument, is there any other reason why the 96 is not the way to go? I am speaking mechanically, etc. for this specific comparison, i.e. has there been any issues with the 96? I...
  18. Model 1911

    I am looking into purchasing a new or used model 1911 for my enjoyment and collection. My only experience in the .45 caliber is my military days shooting the Colt 1911 (Navy-Expert). So, aside from my addictive behavior of collecting milsurp guns, what can anybody recommended to me as the best...
