I agree with your correction.
Indulge me for a minute though.
Without a MA CCW, transporting mags is covered by 'free passage'.
If you have a MA CCW, resident or non, it implies that you will be in the state for more than one microsecond. Of course the argument can be made either way, and driving across the state is legally OK with post 94 highcaps. I'd prefer not to argue that with any LEO however. If I were spending more than 5 minutes in the state, basically getting out of the car, etc, I would avoid doing it with a post 94 hicap, just in case.
I just got assigned to my company's office in MA. About to go for my nonres. Been 8 years since leaving PRM. If I get the nonres, the commute wont be so bad.
If traveling thru as a NR, even if you possess a MA NR LTC, hi-caps are no problem as long as you follow FOPA. Most MA LEOs have no idea what is restricted and what isn't anyway and they will never know what you have if it is locked up in the trunk.
NR LTC is costly, but otherwise the State issues them hassle-free, compared to what most cities/towns do to their "subjects"!
Condolences on being assigned to here.
