    Hey fellas, Rick here from Easton Ma. checking in. I learned about this forum from a coworker awhile ago and joined back in 2017 but never got around to posting. Great site with some really good info. I'm a member of the Taunton rifle and pistol club and looking into joining the Ames rifle club here in Easton as well. I've been into the hand guns for awhile now but just getting into the long guns. I recently acquired a pre-Healy AR lower and in the process of building one now. My other interests are old cars and motorcycles. Anyway, glad to finally make my first post.

    Hello from Ky. I have a variety of semi auto hand guns and long guns but my current addiction is for revolvers. I belong to many forums but stumbled upon this one while searching for information about big bores. My son got me a .38 air weight smith last fathers day which led to a gp 100 which led to a redhawk. And so it goes.

    Some of my best shooting experiences are with my kids. Getting the kids into the shooting sports gets to do more shooting. And it's great family time.

    Hello all, my name is my username, couldn’t figure out how to change it lol. I’m 32 Years old live in western mass, I served 8 years total in the Marines 4 years was active duty Infantry in a line company. My firearms experience started there until present. I’ve shot a lot of things from pistols to 84mm rockets and was a designated marksman in my platoon. I currently own only a pistol and shotgun but plan on upping those rookie numbers as money allows me too. I’m 100 percent disabled and a stay at home dad.

    Hello all. I signed on a year or so ago and have decided to go green after taking in so much from this site. It is a true oasis in the communist enclave I sadly wade through each day. Being the way things are, I found it prudent to change up my name as the previous one was far too identifiable for me to comfortably do anything more than lurking. I'm thankful for a place of common sense and the experience you all bring to something I wish I had become involved with a long time ago. ;) Carry on!

    Hi Ryan, looks like your name got changed after all. Thank you for your service in the Marines. We look forward to you chiming in on threads around the forum... and thank you for going green!

    Cheers,
    Cindy [mg]

    Hi Noel, thanks for going green! You're absolutely right, this is a great little place for gun owners to come together. Look forward to you joining the discussions around the forum.

    Cheers,

    Hey all! I'm Raven!

    I admittedly have very limited firearm experience, but am very interested to learn more! Most of my friends and family are very anti-gun, so I don't have a lot of people offline who would be able to help guide me through the crazy world of Massachusetts firearm laws.

    My main reason for wanting a firearm is so I can learn to hunt. I'm an ex-vegan (I had to give it up because of a medical condition.) From an ethical and environmental standpoint, I'd feel much better eating wild game than farmed animals.

    My only hands on experience with firearms has been shooting at a range with the Boston chapter of Pink Pistols (an organization that teaches firearm skills to LGBTQ folks.)

    Hi Raven,

    Welcome to NES! Hang around here some and I'm sure you'll make some friends and soon, you'll be hitting the range with them soon! Lurk around before asking questions, a lot of answers can be found just by searching around the forum but if you can't find what you're looking for, just ask in a thread. We (most of us) don't bite :)

    Cheers,
    Cindy [mg]

    I'm a bit ashamed as I joined this group in 2009 but did very little on here. I guess it was the political climate making it potentially hazardous to peak out of the trench.

    I'm a USN Vet (Submariner MM 3 (SS) USS DALLAS). I have been a N.R.A. Member and G.O.A.L. for over 25 years My finances are better now since the 2008 recession and I want to join a shooting club here in Mass. I'm interested in Reading Rifle. If any of you who are members of this club and want to meet for breakfast at " As Good as it Gets " Café in Wilmington or some other spot. I'm Looking for sponsor's. I'm interested in High power rifle competition. Pistol as well.

    I work in Wilmington, MA at Scully Signal Co. About 20 years total. My eyes are still pretty good.


    Thanks,


    Frank Scully

    Glad to see you posting Frank. You do not need to be a member of Reading to shoot the high power matches. Look at the schedule and make an appearance.

    Hello all, new resident of Massachusetts ive started the ltc process (interview and prints) i am looking forward to getting back out on the firing line. Any recommendations on a range/club on the south shore (Norwood Dedham) area? I think ive come across two that look appealing but membership dues are drastically different. As well I believe one is indoors pistol only the other having both an indoor an outdoor range. I own rifles but that may change with an ltc. is that a common factor when choosing a club, pistol only?.
    Thanks in advance for any input its all appreciated, tons of info here, ill head back to lurking and reading now.

    Hi Mike, welcome to NES! Glad to have you here and looking forward to your posts around the forum.

    Cheers,
    Cindy [mg]

    Hi Hairless, welcome! Not sure about the Norwood and Dedham area but go check the gun ranges and club section and see if you find what you're looking for there. If not, ask and you might get more responses there. I'd say having indoor and indoor is definitely better than just indoor... the more options, the better. Maybe you can contact the club and see if they have an open house day or something and you can go to the facility and see it in person before really deciding.

    Cheers,
    Cindy [mg]

    Welcome to NES. For future notice, this thread is just for checking in. Start a new thread for any specific questions in the appropriate forum.

    Beautiful rifle. Note crescent and star from Turkey's flag and Ankara being the capital of Turkey. Googling tells me is an Ankara Mauser. The image is blurred but it looks like yours is stamped 1938 model, though that's not necessarily the year of manufacture. It's certainly just before they starting including "K.Kale" as below to show they had moved manufacturing to Kirikkale during WWII

    Those facts and serial number ranges found at these links.

    Hi, I am new to the forum and recently moved from California back to MA, currently in Framingham. I was put on to your site a while back to refer to in regards to gun laws, which, crazy enough, are almost as bad as California. I would like to get involved with selling and trading some firearms. I stick to antique firearms and older battle rifles. I look forward to contributing more to the forums now that I am a permanent resident in MA.

    Hi Ligas,

    Welcome to NES! There may be open debate if MA is worse than California depending on who you talk to :p

    Look forward to you posting around the forum.
