    Angry Gone adventuring in MA

    Wish me luck, tonight I have to disarm for an extended period for the first time in months. My wife and I are driving up to MA to visit family and to have a memorial service for my Dad... it's been 5 years since he passed. Of course, given the destination and all that lies between, I can't bring my XD - hell, even if I had a MA permit, I'd have to buy new magazines just for the trip. So, here's to hoping that flashlight/knife will be sufficient for the trip, since even OC requires a permit (or at least FID card, not sure which.) See you all back here on Tuesday.

    Have you tried to get a nonresident Mass. license? They can be had.

    I feel for you.

    Watch your back, which you should do all the time anyway, and see about applying for a Non-Res License in the future.

    You may have to change guns or magazines, but that is better than being totally unarmed. I probably will get one in the future, eventhough I'm covered under LEOSA.

    Safe travels.

    I just got back from North of Chicago - and while I was OK for carry en route thru OH and IN, once I got to IL I was SOL. It was all down then to OC and my big stick.... oh and of course plenty of situational awareness.

    I can identify all too easily with your impending nakedness.

    Sorry to hear that MA is one of my all time least favorite places to visit...unfortunately I find myself there quite often. Think I'm going to start springing the $100/year for my non-res permit.
    Stay safe!

    If I still lived in NH, I might consider it. This is one of those necessary evils, one of the 3-4 per year visits to the family. I guess if I considered it a $10-a-day tax to carry, it wouldn't seem so bad.

    Actually, the magazine restrictions only apply to the PURCHASE of firearms in the state.

    I feel your pain, though. I live in Southern New Hampshire, and every time I cross the border it pains me to know that the cost of my non-resident MA permit is 400 times my NH permit.

    JG1222 - negative.

    If you aren't LEO, then any magazine in MA must either be pre-94 or 10 rd max. postban high caps are illegal in MA.

    There are seperate AG consumer laws on what guns are available for purchase through dealers, but private party sales are not restricted.

    I bought some 10 rounders for my Glock for trips to California. A few days later I remembered I own a 1911 too.

    I hope you don't take your own advice!

    It could cost you up to 10 years (per mag) in our state prison!

    Mere possession by anyone (except LE) of post-9/13/94 of hi-caps mags is worth 1-10 years (Felony). Read MGL Ch. 140 S. 131M when you have a few minutes!

    NO exception for visitors!
