    It took a year but I finally won...

    I applied for my Mass LTC for the first time in March. I waited until May to find out that I had been denied On the basis of "suitability". I got in contact with a VERY nice and helpful woman at the Firearms support office and was told that I could reapply with a few additional documents attatched. Yesterday I got a message at home to call an Attorney. I called the number today and learned that this gentleman was the director of the firearms support unit and had made the decision to give me my license. He was very nice and easy to talk to. Bottom line is, I will be licensed to cc in Massachusetts as a non resident in just a few short days or so. Like I said, I finally won.

    That's a bit sickening, but congrats.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Good work!!

    After traveling for the holidays through the Third Reich of Assachusetts, I have a re-kindled fervor to get mine.

    We went to RI twice and when I was going through the Communist Commonwealth, I put the gun in a lock box in the back, with the ammo is a separate lock box. Immediately upon leaving MA, I pulled over and brought it back up front with me. Incident free this time.

    Major: When I go to fill mine out, Ill probably have some questions.

    Above link from GOAL answers some questions about non-resident Lic.
    It's a $100/yr, to most not worth it.
    Also I believe traveling through Ma is a no go even with weapon locked up in trunk, unless you have Lic. or are going to pistol competition.

    A crying shame that you have to fight to exersize your Constitutional right to "Keep and Bear Arms". I thought the "back of the bus" days were long in our past.

    I thought a permit in Mass was a myth. Glad you proved me wrong. Ha, ha, ha. Congrats.

    If you were just passing through the state and was legal to carry on both ends of your trip why would it be a "no go". He followed all the federal rules for interstate transport of firearms. He unloaded the weapon and stored it in the trunk.
