    New guy in MA

    Hello all. This looks like a great forum to be a member in. I'm looking forward to learning some new things and having good discussions with all of you.

    I'm in MA, so unfortunately, the federal gun ban lives on, Massachusetts style. I envy you guys in the states where you can buy just about anything you want, but at least I can be happy I'm not in a state like CA...

    I'm an industrial automation programmer/technician professionally, and a DIY kind of guy everywhere else, including when it comes to the safety of me and my family. (Even though the wife wears a badge and a gun on her hip when she goes to work)

    I've got a few different firearms, and don't think I will be buying any new ones any time soon, although I have been spending some money on upgrades to the existing ones during this year. In the collection to date:
    Pistols
    1. Carry gun - S&W M&P 45 Full Size w/o external safety or internal lock with Laser Grip.
    2. S&W M&P 45 Full Size w/o external safety or internal lock (stock)
    3. S&W CS45 Chief's Special .45 ACP compact alloy frame.
    4. Berretta 21A in .22LR

    Rifles
    1. Bushmaster XM15 (Massachusetts edition - i.e. no scarey bayonet lug)
    2. Ruger 10/22

    Shotguns
    1. HD - Mossberg 590 8-round mag, ghost-ring sites, ATI pistol grip, MAKO picatinny rail foregrip with MAKO pistol grip, tac light and laser.
    2. Mossberg 500 with Marine-Cote, rifled slug barrel with scope mount.

    You are allowed to carry concealed in the People's Republic of MA?? I was thinking about obtaining an out of state pistol permit and when I saw what was required i said NO WAY. Too much hassel.
