    Hi all--long time lurker, medium term member, short term contributor. Never made a proper intro. when I joined so here goes. Earliest memories of NES date back to my time in Indiana (circa 2010; yes, I moved BACK to MA--I'm either an idiot (highly probable) or an American patriot of the highest order who answered the call of the constitutionally oppressed and returned to a life behind enemy lines to engage in an epic battle for the second amendment (not necessarily true but a significantly better story)). Metrowest native and still in the area (this, combined with the location listed in my NES profile, may give you a hint). In the years I've been lurking around the site I've taken both a tremendous amount of enjoyment and knowledge and look forward to be able to give some back. Finally made the effort to go green this evening (way overdue). Looking forward to continued contributions.

    Hi,

    Moved into Boston about 6 years ago from PA. Was a very active shooter before getting married and having kids, did SASS, GSSF and IDPA for many years. Started the LTC process last September and still waiting not so patiently...

    Hi sahozza! High five for Quincy! I live in VA now but I'm originally from Quincy and visit there quite often still. Welcome to NES and I hope you'll enjoy our stay. Post in the threads and share in on the fun. And thank you for your service. If you're looking for a local gun shop and don't already know about it, I recommend checking out The Sportsman's Den in Quincy... on 3A / Southern Artery. Ron is a great guy.

    Cheers,
    Cindy [mg]

    Hi Mike. Welcome to NES. I don't really used the classifieds but it looks like you should be able to just go there (Firearm Classifieds), find the category of your item (handgun, shotgun, etc), and hit the "post a new thread" button near the top and you should be able to add your description/picture there. Let us know if you're still having troubles.

    Cheers,
    Cindy [mg]

    Hi Man, welcome to NES. Whereabouts out west? I used to work in Somerville for several years (Davis Sq). Thanks for taking the time to post your intro after lurking for a while. Glad you're finding the community helpful. See you around in the forum.

    Cheers,
    Cindy [mg]

    Hi bauer, welcome welcome welcome all the same. Thanks for the intro post here... many of us do enjoy reading about our new/old/lurker members. Thanks for going green and showing your support of this great community. Whether you're an idiot or not, we welcome you back to MA to re-join the fight ;)

    Cheers,
    Cindy [mg]

    Hi DeadEye, welcome to NES! That's ok, just think about what you're gonna buy once you do get your LTC. Think of it as a celebratory purchase even if it's not your first. It'll be exciting nonetheless. And wait a minute... you applied in Sept and you're still waiting??? My condolences. I hope it'll go through sooner rather than even later for you!

    Cheers,
    Cindy [mg]

    Hi everyone, I have a quick question before I step on any toes. First off if I need to pay for a dealer/industry account that's not a problem. I work for an engineering firm in the industry and I'm hoping to get some feedback from folks on here. We have a market research survey going for 9mm pistols that'd I'd like to post. We're giving away a Glock 19 with custom laser engraving and cerakote as part of the survey. The custom work will be done locally, here in NH, by 2A Engraving and 603 Coatings. Thanks for the consideration!

    Hi All,
    Been lurking here for a long time. Recently retired so I have a lot more time to pursue my hobbies, one of which is firearms collecting and shooting. I live out in the woods is a secluded area with a range right off of my back deck. Load my mags on the picnic table or if the weather is bad right inside the sliding glass door on the dining room table (I have a very understanding wife). I have received a lot of great info here and I am excited to now be a member. Hopefully I can post some things that might be of interest or helpful to others.

    Welcome to NES! Like I always say, many of us are ass holes, but we are your kinda ass holes.
    I already don't like you because...
    1. You are retired and I am not.
    2. You can shoot off your deck and I can not.
    3. You have a very understanding wife. Do you have any idea how many beatings that took?
    [laugh][laugh][laugh][laugh][laugh][laugh][laugh]

    Obviously kidding. Welcome aboard!

    I'm more interested in what jmorrison stands for. It has long been rumored that Jim is not dead. If this is really him, I hope he gets the band back together.

    Meh - he sucked when he was 25. I can't imagine what he would be like at 76.

    Just wanted to say hello. My name is Mark I live in North Attleboro, Heard about the forum through guys at my sportsman’s club. Old shotguns and rifles are my passion (pre 64 model 70s, Winchester Model 12s, Remington model 31s ect) and they are all I shoot. I love the craftsmanship that older guns were made with. Hand fitted and smooth as silk and the history that I will never know but can fully appreciate. Glad to be here.

    Just wanted to say hello from Upstate NY, retired LEO, and avid gun collector, I especially love Colt's and U.S. military arms. Nice forum you guys have here, I am surprised I have never seen it before.

    Howdy folks.

    I lurked on the for the past few months. I learned a lot about the LTC process and I received mine last fall.

    I live on the south shore and have decided to apply to the Holbrook Sportsmen Club. Hopefully I'll be to drop off the paperwork this week.

    I guess that's all for now. Thanks everyone

    Hi everyone, My name is Steve from New Bedford, Marine Corps reservist right of high school, 8 years. I had my LTC in "95" but between life, work, family ect.. never really did anything with it. I'm in sales for a basement waterproofing company. Couple buddies at work got their LTC and sparked the interest again. Currently going into my 10th week of waiting for the renewal to come in. I'm glad I found a local forum to research and absorb peoples experiences. Plan on joining Goal and a local gun club along with pursuing different classes to further my education and awareness.

    She has a Ruger SR 22 but loves plinking w/ my Marlin 39a and ive got an H&k VP9.
    Next on the list will be a Mini 14 hopefully.

    Whats up, My name is Gabriel. Originally from Boston, took the course about 2 years ago but waited until I purchased property outside of Boston to apply for a LTC. Just purchased a home in Brockton last summer. Interviewed in December and just got notice my LTC was activated on 3/15/19. Just waiting for the delivery process. Im really close to the Holbrook Gun Club so if any you have an opinion on it that be great. I usually go with family to his club in Braintree which is alright. looking to pick up a Shield as a nice carry option which I have a bit of experience with. Im glad I came across this forum and will def be involved as time comes. Thanks guys!

    Welcome. Check out both Holbrook and Braintree gun clubs. They are both great and offer somewhat different ranges, so pick the one that most closely accommodates your interests. Both have websites you can check for basic info and then a visit on a Sunday morning might get you a tour by whatever members you run into there. Just bring ear protection with you.

    I believe the one I attended was Braintree not Quincy and I did like the 24 hour access availability, Holbrook Gun Club is less then a mile away from my residence.

    Yeah, there isn't a club in Quincy so it sounds like you went to the one in Braintree. I was a member there several years ago but then I moved out of state. If I were to move back in and in that same area again, I wouldn't hesitate to be a member there again. 24/7 indoor access without RSOs is amazing. And an outdoor range to boot. Can't beat it. Those really aren't a thing where I live now, unfortunately. I've only been to Holbrook once, no real comments there as I don't know the facility or the people.

    Hi guys,

    I'm a middle-aged guy living in Pepperell, MA who's pretty new to shooting sports. I currently own a Ruger Mark4, S&W 627, M&P 15-22, and a Beretta Silver Pigeon. After I put a trigger kit in the Mark4, I may try joining the Bull's-eye League at the club and I definitely want to break some clays this summer. And plain old target shooting and plinking is always fun! :)

    I've been here a few times before for information and at a recent GOAL seminar he mention this site. I probably should have joined awhile ago but I really try not to sit in front of a screen too much if you know what I mean. ;-)
