  1. Shotgun Muzzle Devices In Massachusetts

    I literally am asking for a friend. He seems to have been informed somewhere along the line that there are restrictions regarding muzzle devices for shotguns in Massachusetts. Specifically breaching devices. He's looking at a brake that is marketed as also being good for door breaching...
  2. Anyone want to pool resources and acquire this mobile over-watch station?

    So with the election approaching, Facebook has started to generate some new and interesting suggestions on marketplace. Looks like they are aware that I'm a discerning individual with advanced prepping needs. Anyone want to team up on this beauty? Maybe someone who can weld so we can armor up...
  3. Enlarge Gas Port vs Lighten Buffer/BCG... What's the difference?

    Okay gurus and brain trust, I have an AR gas system question. As I understand it, there is an "ideal" cyclic rate, which is to say there is an ideal bolt velocity. If the bolt velocity is too low, you can see things like failure to strip off a new round, failure to lock open, or even stove...
  4. LTC Interview In Harwich, Anyone Recent?

    I have a good friend who asked me "what should they expect" in their LTC interview in Harwich, MA. I didn't have an interview in my town, so I was curious if anyone has been or heard of someone going recently to get an LTC in harwich and what the process was like.
  5. Carbine training courses in New England

    I've looked through the training section, and done a little bit of research. So far it seems like one of the better/best options for carbine training in the MA/New England area would be Onsight Defensive Carbine course. Has anyone been through this course? Any other similar courses I...
  6. Preban AR Pistol... does such a thing exist? But wait... there's more...

    Is there such a thing as a preban AR pistol lower? I realize it needs to be in AW configuration pre-94 to be a AWB exempt. I also realize you can't convert a RIFLE into a pistol, regardless of manufacture date. But are there any lowers floating around that were built as a pistol back in the...

  8. Evidence in support of the .40/9mm debate. Exhibit A.

    https://www.capenews.net/falmouth/news/drunken-man-taken-into-custody-after-riding-bicycle-with-a-loaded-gun/article_3895e270-db59-526b-825d-4e35ee807e86.html Very curious if he actually does any time for this, or if laws only apply to law abiding citizens who slip up.
  9. $350 Surplus SKS

    Just thought I'd share in case someone is looking but wasn't aware. PSA has surplus cosmoloved SKS's for $350. If you live in a free state shipping was like $17. If you live in MA, there are plenty of NH FFL's that will take delivery and then transfer to your LGS. Ends up being closer to...
  10. AR in x39?

    So I want to keep training, and I don't want to switch platforms to AK, and I don't want to burn through my stockpile nor do I want to pay the price that 5.56 is going for. Naturally, I decided to build a frankengun, and will be building an AR Pistol in 7.62x39. I found a nice build kit for...
  11. FEDS setting traps on facebook now?

    Saw this on my facebook feed today. I wonder if its a targeted program meant to trap me because I'm on some list? Or if this is really a vendor trying to pawn these off and getting through facebooks screening process.
  12. Hypothetical in Mass, involves Bourbon

    Okay, so my understanding is that massprudence says carrying and alcohol are basically zero tolerance policy. Frankly, this is logical to me. No need to mix those two intentionally. What about defense of your home? You are enjoying a nice bourbon, sitting on the couch with the misses, and...
  13. Possible homicide in Hyannis

    No news article yet, listening to the scanners. Saw a friend post a traffic alert and said it was due to a "possible shooting". BOLO relating to a homicide went out over the scanners for a person of interest. A google search of his name reveals previous involvement in suspected shootings...
  14. Immigrants and self defense

    I have a good friend who is here on a work visa, and on track to receive his green card by end of next year. He called me asking my thoughts on what the outcome would be if he used a firearm in self defense in his home. Apparently a good friend of ours received a package with a brick of...
  15. I'm Green Fellas!

    Thanks for all the advice and content so far. Realized I've gotten enough advice and info from this site to date that it far exceeds the cost of a membership. Purchasing my first home in Falmouth, so if anyone is a Monument Beach range member I'll be coming to the next general meeting and...
  16. Should ranges/gun stores know the law?

    I'm a little flustered. I was practicing with my carry gun tonight at my range, which is also a store, and while talking to an employee I mentioned that I owned an HK USP. He promptly stated something along the lines of "watch out, that's not mass compliant, you should be careful". We spent...
  17. Someone has to be first... getting the AWB overturned...

    Okay, I know the law as far as the state (mass) is concerned. There are varying levels of interpretation. If you ask Healy, any AR pattern rifle is illegal, but she just won't prosecute based on a magical date. Great. Screw Healy, screw her date. If you ask CMR/MGL you find that bayonet...
