    What sort of training?

    Take a look at Neshooters, LLC for schedules of their training as well as nationally known trainers. Folks that run this training are shooting buddies of mine.

    Mike, take a look at Bridgeport Shooting Range They have some training and I'm sure some top trainers come there to train others.

    It's not in your area of the woods but vermont tactical seems to be good. I havent been but I either read or watched about them in some gun media. Been thinking of going myself.
    The is also the sig academy in NH and smith and wesson might have something in sprinfield ma.

    NE Shooters has some classes and has some guest trainers come teach as well. I attended a gunsite class there last year. Held in westford, MA

    Neshooters, LLC is also running courses in Pelham, NH this year. Check the website for specifics. There is an easy way for NRs (without MA LTC) to legally bring their handguns into MA for a course (but with 10 rds only for post-9/13/94 mags). Talk with the folks running the NEShooters website for specifics.

    Thanks for that note, but I had no problem bringing my pistol (1911) into MA I just needed a letter saying I was attending a competition (which there was in the course, quite fun actually).

    Kirk,

    My comment above was for the benefit of others who may not know about this provision of law. I also quoted you to point out that some of the courses are being held in NH (free America), so if those that don't want to worry about MA hassles still want training, that might appease their concerns.

    It was funny because Jim Conway called me just as I was posting that response. I told him that his ears must have been burning.
