  2. Taking non-US residents to the range

    I've got a number of coworkers that work in other offices around the globe. I've had a working relationship with some for close to a decade, and once in a while we have some small talk about gun laws in our various countries. Anyway, they often come to the US for business, and I'm wondering...
  3. Possession of relic weapons

    Curious about this subject. I've been watching videos on Youtube of guys pulling rusted out, disintegrated k98's, mosin s, STG44's and other various firearms from the eastern front. For the sake of this question, let's assume the firearm is beyond any sort of restoration and is just a rusty...

    Asking for a coworker who I frequently take to the range with me. His son is coming up for the holidays, and he wants to take him shooting. I'd like to take them myself, but my schedule is booked solid for the holidays. Other than Bobs in Salisbury, are there any ranges he could go to...
  5. Surrendering C&R 03FFL License.

    What's the procedure for surrendering your license? I have reasons for not wanting my C&R right now. Simple reasons, but I'll keep them to myself for the sake of not posting too much info online. I've read online a few difference sources on how to do this, but wanted to see if anyone...
  6. Any shops stock .300 BLK, 6.5 or 6.8 Normally?

    In looking to build an upper for my AR other that 5.56. 9mm is an option as well but I know that it is easy to get. I am not set up for reloading just yet, so any shooting I do with this new upper will need to be done with factory ammo. We all know how hard it is to order ammo to MA. Do...

  11. Any local shops have Nagant revolvers?

    Have you guys seen any? I have my c&r, and d know where to order one for $99 plus shipping, but of local shops had them for not that much more, I'd rather give them the business as well as being able to examine my purchase first. If it costs me $115 to ship one to me vs $125 or so at a...

    Been trying to find and m44 for some time now that wasn't going to cost me in the ballpark of $300. I wised up, got my C&R license and promptly ordered two mosins shipped to my door for the price of a local M44. How I love this little price of paper :) Anyway, my new '44 Ishevsk. Typical...

  16. Supply of Mosin Nagants drying up?

    Ok, well I know the supply isn't dry yet. You can still buy from certain vendors with a C&R, but I've always been a "buy in person" type of person. I bought a Mosin 91/30 over the summer directly from Four Seasons. Very nice quality rebuild and was sort of in the mood to buy another...

    Just bought an M&P15 Sport from Four Season, now just want to be clear on a few things before I start traveling around to ranges with it. I'll have a hard case for it, and the case will be locked. Am I allowed to keep loaded magazines in the same case with it at all times? Or do they need...
