Thanks @fencer . If nobody crapped on me in my first week, I wouldn’t feel welcome at all.
My first week I was the recipient of an epic beat down by Scrivener because I wasn't as smart as you and opened my mouth!
I was so pissed off that I immediately went green and have been ever since.
Then I learned not to take it personally, to grow some thicker skin, and that meh, it's the internet.

NES is my go to for everything from tractor and automotive advice, to current events and inside info. Hell, after watching a weather report about an impending snow storm, you gotta see what NES has to say about it!
It;s funny but we fall into basic categories. Those who buy snow tires, and those that do not. Those that like Glocks and Rugers and those who are smarter than that, and of course AK and AR folks. There are some subcategories as well. [laugh]

I’ve learned that my occasional carrying of a 40 makes me somewhat less than masculine too. 😆

In all seriousness, you’re right. I’m always on here because there’s a unique way of looking at things amongst our number. It’s not an echo chamber either.

New guy here. Transplant from Michigan. Now in Epping,NH. So far, so good. I am sure it will be a bit before I get myself into trouble. I am still a MOD at Michigan Gun Owners site. Just trying to get the lay of the land. One thing tho. You can cross a state line real quick and carrying a gun is a problem. Gives you a little pucker factor

Welcome! IIRC, we "met" on ARfcom. Yes, MA is a major problem and an easy one to run afoul of.

Len, I have a feeling I need to take a class or two of yours. I was teaching the Concealed Pistol class in Michigan. I am wanting to get my out of state permit for MA and I assume they want a class or two completed for that

MA requires a single course with a Mass State Police (MSP) certificate from a MSP BFS Certified instructor. Although I am certified to teach the BFS (and LEOSA) courses, I am now officially a Non-Resident of Mass and have to await my own NR LTC before I can sign off on those certificates. We sold our MA house and I sent in my notifications of moving as well as my application for my NR LTC.

Yep, I went to the range before my move. But, need to find something here as well. Some place that doesn't mind rapid fire. Currently waiting on the legal crap to be done with the FRT trigger. ATF playing games yet again

Heard they are still selling them on the website and other places. I'm sure they are in court atm. I'm surprised they didn't go after the binary trigger first. The gene pool at the ATF don't run that deep I guess.

Sorry to say that I don't know any clubs in your new area, however, you could go thru the following URL and check out the status of clubs near Epping online then follow up with a phone call.

I'm sure that the above-mentioned list isn't complete or totally accurate, but it is a start. Also, visit a few gun shops and ask around. Good luck.

Yep, I plan too. Once I get the house in order. Working on cars today. Taking a break from the work to sit a few and eat. Thankful it's not 90+ outside.

Good afternoon, new member. Recently moved to MA for work, pretty nice state even though the price of gas is making me reconsider my long-term future here. Currently reside in Arlington MA, waiting on my LTC to come (4 weeks and counting). Nice to see an active 2A forum for New Englanders.

Welcome to MA and the forum. I’m next door to you in Winchester.
