  1. Proposed Laws as Constitutional takings?

    My question, as basically stated in the subject line, is does the proposal amount to a Fifth Amendment Constitutional taking? It's not at all uncommon that many gun owners have hundreds, if not thousands (especially under recent market prices) of dollars in magazines that will become illegal...
  2. Arms Sales Soar - In a foreign land...

    So many issues, parallel and otherwise, that I submit this without comment. (I've never "linked" a story before, hope this works) http://www.thenational.ae/news/world/south-asia/afghanistan-arms-sales-soar-in-lead-up-to-troops-pull-out
  3. Info re: Carroll County Fish & Game Club or Bearcamp Valley Sportsman's Club in NH?

    Looking for contact info for either of the above-named clubs. If there are any NES members that belong to either I would appreciate the chance to hear some details about either place. Specific contact info for either would be much appreciated. If there are any other places in the...
  4. Olympic swimmers in trouble over posing for photos holding guns.

    Follow the link. Unreal. The hypocrisy is numbing, given that the Olympics feature at least one sport where firearms are used. I guess all guns aren't created equal... http://www.cnn.com/2012/06/08/world/asia/australia-swimmer-gun-photos/index.html?hpt=hp_t2
  5. Army Navy Store on Rte North around Peabody/Lynn/?

    Ironically, on my way to the Army Barracks Store in Salem, MA, we passed an Army Navy store on the northbound side of Rte 1. Now that I think of it we I'd guess we were around Peabody/Lynn. There was no convenient place to turn around and head south and then turn back north again, not knowing if...
  6. "Over-scoping" / what's "too much" scope?

    Hi all: To expand on the subject line: I am picking up an Trijicon Accupoint in 5-20x50. I have several guns that I would consider mounting it on, including whatnis basically an SPR clone (5.56 18" free floated match barrel, match trigger,etc...), a Loaded model M1A, and a soon to be...
  7. Duracoat/similar gun refinishers in New England?

    Looking to get some stripped AR parts done up, an upper and lower in particular. Would prefer to keep the job local if possible. Anyone have any names? Not looking for anything too fancy here, not planning on a camo job or anyng like that, but someone who does this stuff regularly would be...
  8. Any info on Peruvian or Malaysian surplus .308 ammo?

    Subject line pretty much says it all. A friend saw some available and was looking for info. Any help would greatly appreciated, as always. Thanks guys! Steve
  9. Survival/Preparedness books for Kindle and others?

    Title pretty much says it all... Anyone know of any on-topic books for e-readers? Stay cool! Ozman
  10. Guns in t.v.'s "Falling Skies" tonight.

    So, I'm sitting here watching this scrappy human survivors vs. aliens show, and all I can think of is, where did they get all these full auto AK's and AR's with folding stocks and the like, if this show is supposed to be set in Massachusetts? Now that's science fiction! Steve
  11. Legaity of Magpul PRS and request for link to CMR/MGL link on rifle stocks.

    First, I hope this is the right forum to ask this question. I believe it is since its a Mass law question. Does anyone know if the Magpul Precision Rifle Stock is legal under Mass law? http://store.magpul.com/product/MAG307/84 I am under the impression it is not covered by the spirit...
  12. Ammo can Faraday Cage?

    Been looking on line, but thought I'd see what this group had to say. I'd like to use a few of my larger ammo cans as Faraday cages for ham equipment and other radio gear. Questions: 1. Do I need to remove the rubber gasket from the lid? 2. Can I use foam padding as the "insulator"...
  13. First AK 47...couple of questions.

    As the title says, I just bought my first AK. (Thanks Whitey, great transaction!) It is a one year old WASR. Great shape. Came with three 30 round mags. I know they are a different animal than the typical AR quality-wise, but I am surprised at how much play there is with a seated magazine...
  14. SEAL shooters: What did they use?

    Surprised there hasn't been any discussion on this. A non-shooting friend of all people just asked me out of the blue what I thought they might have used. Since specualtion is the new national pastime, I'll toss it out there until some sort of official confirmation is issued. I'll add a...
  15. Trijicon Tri-Power vs. Eotech 5 series?

    Subject line pretty much says it all. Anyone tried both? On paper, lots of good things to say about the Trijicon but looking for some real world opinions from the group. As always, Thanks, Steve
  16. Grace Periods, Renewals, and really cool guns.

    An update on a previous thread that generated some, lets say, interesting back and forth... For those that don't recall, I asked what I thought was an otherwise simple question about Mass. LTC grace periods, particularly as they relate to purchases. Heres how it shook out in the real world...
  17. This Saturday (17th) at Braintree

    I see they have a DCM match listed for this coming Saturday. Can I assume this is a regular CMP/DCM match open to the public or am I missing something?
  18. Grace Period (for purchase only)

    Trying to clarify this. I have a rifle on hold at a local shop which most of us here know and love. Total brain fade on my part finds my LTC "A" set to expire on my birthday, this Monday. The store is closed on Mondays. Short questions is this: Can I buy this long gun on Tuesday? As...
  19. Fibreglass stocks CMP/DCM legal? (On M1A)

    Subject line pretty much says it all...For DCM/CMP legality, does the stock have to be wood or can it be fibreglass and still be a legal service rifle? Specifically I'm referring to a "Loaded" model Springfield Armory M1A with a bunch of National Match goodies. I know that M1A's are being...
  20. A3 style AR legal in Hi Power/CMP?

    Looking to get back into Hi Power competition and am planning on purchasing a Bushmaster comp model. Sort of one stop shopping, y'know/ My question is, they list an A3 flat top (comes with carrying handle) along with the "standard" A2 model. For a variety of reasons this option appeals to me...
