Whats going on people, how are things!? My Name is Bobby, I live in Lynn, Massachusetts. I am fairly new to firearms, so call me a novice. I am in the process of being granted my Class A license, just waiting on the phone call from my local PD, to let me know that my license has arrived. Definately just stubbled on to this web page, while researching firearms, and figured that it would be informative to join. I am looking for a midsize (compact) weapon for my first concealed weapon. I have shot a .40 Sig P229 and a sub-compact M&P 9mm. Looking at the Glock 23 and the Sig P229. I am leaning more toward the Glock 23 at this point, but the only glock you can buy in Ma must be used as you probably already know. I Would Like to buy new, if you have and input that you could share please let me know...

Hi, I joined up about a week ago, didn't realize there was a welcome thread.

Live in the hills of western Mass, would rather live in a 2A friendly state like Montana or Texas. [smile]

Have had my LTC-A since leaving the Marines in 1985. If my pants are on, I'm armed. If they are off, my weapon is within reach. My wife also carries, most of the time (working on it:) [thinking]

Big time hunter, into 2A issues and wood art. Member of Easthampton Fish & Game Gun Club and the NRA.

Found the forum off the GOAL link.

Thanks for having me.

Hello I just registered the other day. I did shooting when I was younger.
I firmly believe in the second amendment and want to be active in making sure the government doesn't take away that right. I also just enjoy shooting.
I joined the NRA and I will join more groups that will fund the "right".
I live in NH, and will be taking my basic in August and I look forward to taking more classes I want to learn as much as I can. I am currentl reading
The Gravest Extreme by Massad Ayoob, any other read recomendations??
Is anyone else from NH?

Hello my name is Bill and I live in Worcester. I just finished taking the Basic course in Foxborough. I am in the process of filing out the packet for my Class A license. I am retired military (US Army) and have had very little experience in the way of hand Guns, as I found out at the range. I am looking to start out with the 22 caliber to get the experience, anyone have some suggestions on make and model I would be greatful. I think Northeastshooters is great, and I am glad I joined.

Hi Bill,

Glad to have you here. I would recommend the Sig Mosquito. It's a great little 22 LR. Fun to shoot! [grin]

Hey, all,

I recently joined and am contemplating getting my license. This will, no doubt, be made more difficult due to my wife being one of those rabid gun-haters. She gives my son a hard time about his nerf guns and the "message" they send.

I've learned a tremendous amount about Mass laws just by reading the info on this site. Living in the PR of Northampton, I actually like the idea of having a license to carry amid the so-called intellectual elites around me who disapprove.

Anyway, this is a great site with tons of helpful information. Keep up the good work.

Oh, lordy, lordy, lordy... are YOU in for a rough ride. Hang in there, though, because it'll be worth it.

Oh, and welcome to NES. Got some of your neighbors here, in fact - one of our Mods, Mrs WildWeasel, is from that area.

Hi to All

I am a new here, but have been reading all the very interesting comments for the last couple months. I got my LTC class A last Oct. I bought an S&W MP9c for my first handgun. I have yet to fire it though. I guess I could use some moral support from a more exp. shooter. I learned to shoot in the service 30 years ago on the M16. I did not have any trouble at all at the time. Now, being older, I am having some fears of getting hurt, etc. Anyway, from the comments I have read, most here seem to share my views on the 2 Amd, and the rest. Well, nice to be here, and I hope to meet some of you FTF in time!![grin]
