    Hello from Massachusetts

    Greeting from the PRM (People's Republic of Mass). I'm a long time firearms owner/user, military veteran and retired public safety (10 years on the LEO side and nearly 20 on the fire side). I was very active shooting and reloading back in my LEO days, but became less active during the past 20 years. I got very active again over the past year or so.

    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones in my state, since I have what they call an LTC-A ALP which allows me to carry concealed and for all lawful purposes. I've had that since my LEO days and I kept it up due to threats I had received on the job. It's probably a significantly reduced threat now given the passage of time. Nevertheless, I'll keep it. You just never know!!
