So let's start there. You can only possess/transport low-capacity long guns with that FID card within MA.
NH allows ANYONE to possess and shoot long guns. Transportation must be unloaded (can't have a loaded long gun in a vehicle at any time).
I don't know CT laws, so I'll leave that to others.
The best place to go to get answers to these questions is the state-specific sub-forums under Gun Laws forum in Northeastshooters.com - Northeastshooters.com News
The only thing I'll say about CT for the OP is BEWARE of the CT banned list, as MA allows any brand/caliber of long guns whereas CT does not.
The NH RSAs are real short and easy to understand.
Thanks for this great info. Sorry, wish I was 21 again;-) More specifically, have class A license, but only to target and hunt, not CCW. Could I ask you to re answer with those facts. I am only talking about a handgun, not rifle. Thanks. You can PM me if this is going to long... appreciate your answers.
[I wish I was 21 again too, instead of multiples of it! ]
OK, you have a restricted LTC-A.
That allows you to get a NH NR PP if you want, a one-page form and $100 for x years (bill is in process that might extend it, I think it is 4 or 5 years currently). It is currently taking >1 month to get it and the form can be DL'd from the state website.
In NH, the ONLY thing that the NH PP is good for is CONCEALED CARRY, it is NOT needed (or relevant) for possession, transportation, or going shooting somewhere in NH. NOTE: NH requires a permit for you to carry a loaded handgun in a motor vehicle as well.
I'll let the CT folks answer for CT but it is my belief that we aren't allowed to transport a handgun in CT w/o a CT NR permit. I've never bothered with CT as it is never a destination for me where I could bring a gun even if I had a permit. I've had my NH PP for 13 years and vacation in VT, NH and ME so I am familiar with their laws. I am a "subject matter expert" on MA gun laws.
The rest of the info in my prior point is still valid.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
I thought that card was for buying ammo in the people republic of Mass.This was a knee jerk reaction to the murders of
the two Kennedy Brothers.The rest of us got the gun control act oif 1968.What pisses me of if Bobby had not double crossed the mob both him and his brother probably would of lived a long life.Screwing Castro didn't help either as he want some payback for Bay of Pigs and numerous assination attempts on his life by the CIA.New Hampshire got dam greedy as just three or four years ago they were a mere twenty bucks for non resident ccw.Hey guy, you want to target shoot bring your firearms to Maine we ask no long rifles or shotguns can be loaded in a vehicle.Best thing put your ammo in the truck or rifles in car or
vicecy verusa.We ask you that you are 18 years of age to buy your ammo.Maine is a welfare state and a vacation destination
so we are dam pleased to take as much money from you as we tax the hell out of everybody;almost as good as little Washington aka Mass.Guys please chime in on the age there uised to be an age difference on handgun ammo you had to be 21 to purchase that and 18 for long rifle I remember making a point witha salesman pointing out camp carbines all use pistol ammo as long as I tell you I am using it in a rifle you'll sell it to me and the wallworld wingnut saidyes!
CT also requires an NRA Certificate showing that you had taken NRA Basic Pistol (other courses won't do according to what I've been told), so it is a bit of a PITA to get their permit. NH requires nothing but the form and a check, plus a copy of your permit from any state.
