  1. Speedy New Hampshire

    It seems that folks on this site are perrenially interested in "How long did it take . . . ?" Here is one data point: I dropped the renewal papers for my NH P&R (non-resident) in the mailbox a week ago Monday. On my street, the mailbox is collected about 2 pm. My new license came in the mail...
  2. CZ 527 in 7.62 x 39

    I am not an expert with the CZ rifles, so take the following with a grain of salt: I bought one of these a while ago and, like most folks, started off by shooting a bunch of the cheap, Russian, steel-cased ammo. Functioned flawlessly. I then bought some factory brass cased ammo (PMC) for...
  3. "Must Read"

    "Liberty's Last Stand," by Stephen Coonts. About $9 from Kindle, which is a bit much for a Kindle book, but worth every penny. Normally, I don't presume to tell folks what books they "must read," since everyone's tastes are different and no one's tastes are "right" for everyone else...
  4. Obama's "New" Background Checks Executive Action

    After all the hoopla, our President's "new" action with respect to who is a "firearms dealer" (and who, therefore, is required to make a NICS check before completing a sale) comes down to an AFT "Guidance" document. The document can be found here...
  5. "Customer Service" from NH DPS

    In this age when it is common to complain about treatment received by licensing authorities (sometimes with warrant), I thought folks might be interested in my recent experience renewing my NH Non-Resident Pistol Permit: Last Wednesday, I received a letter advising that my license would...
  6. RCBS Customer Service

    There have been a couple of threads over the years lauding RCBS customer service. I'd like to add one. The round is .32 S&W Long. Not a round I load very often, but I picked up some new Starline brass and was sizing and belling it. The expander in my die (had it for a very long time)...
  7. One Man's Opinion

    The recently-closed thread that started with an innocuous question about a traffic accident is not the first thread on this forum eventually to evoke one or more responses that indict police officers as a group with broad negative generalities. In fact, as a group, police officers are human...
  8. Arizona Law: District Court Decision on Preliminary Injunction

    I have received and reviewed (albeit a bit quickly) the decision of the District Court on the United States' application for a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the so-called "Arizona Law." 1) A copy of the decision is attached in full. Folks would do well to read it in its...
  9. Flash: Patrick Kennedy to Retire

    Kennedy will release a statement tomorrow morning (already leaked to AP) to the effect that he will not be seeking reelection this year.
  10. Court Decision re: Storage and Heller

    A Superior Court judge has ruled that the Massachusetts storage laws are not prohibited by the Second Amendment, per Heller, because they do not apply to firearms on the owner's person. Note that this decision assumes that the the Second Amendment applies to the Commonwealth (that is to say, it...
  11. RCBS Customer Service

    I noticed one day last week that the support stem in my RCBS primer pocket swaging kit was bent. Went to the RCBS website but could not find an item for a replacement stem, so I sent them an email. Got an email back saying that replacement stems were one the way "under warranty." Sent a...
  12. CCW OK on MBTA

    One Scott Wadland was shocked, shocked, to observe a uniformed security guard apparently commuting to work with his holstered firearm. "Are there any policies in place (like those on Amtrak) that prohibit weapons on the train?" he asked. No. "The carrying of firearms in Massachusetts is...
  13. On Children, Parents and Planes

    The underlying thread having been closed before I got back home, I feel the need to add my $.02: I actually recall my first >1,000 mile train ride as a child and my first plane ride (Super Constellation, just slightly after open cockpits) as a child. On those occasions, as on any other, had...
  14. Paul Beaudry RIP

    For those who might have missed it, today's Northwest section of the Glob reported the death of L. Paul Beaudry. Paul was a former president of Woburn Sportsmen's Association, a force behind GOAL and an active shooter for many years. The obit contained no information about arrangements.
