    Hello from MA

    Hi everyone,

    I've been lurking for a bit and figured I'd say hello. I really like this site alot and have found it very helpful.

    I live in MA, about the worst place in the country to live if you like firearms, but I've tried to make the best out of it. I have a Class A "All Lawful purpose" LTC and I shoot about 1-2times per week at my GC. My most recent purchase was a pre-ban Glock 30. I have a few other pistols and I'll post some pics to this thread when I get a chance.

    In addition, I work as Registered Nurse at hosptial in Boston. I see a ton of shooting victims on my floor, which is always interesting from a ballistics standpoint. In my free time, I'm into wreck diving and fishing.

    Wowee....a CCW-licensed MA resident....welcome.

    I'd be curious to find out more about your experiences regarding the effects of gunshot wounds you've witnessed at your job.

    Welcome to the forum! Great place for CCW issues here.

    I recall a few Docs as members of a former MA gun eList (this was a few years ago), also employees of one of the largest hospitals in Boston. If you are at the end of Mass Ave that I think you are, I wouldn't be caught unarmed at any time!

    Hey Diver - welcome to CC

    Indeed later sometime, without seeming too macabre - give your views on injury matters. No gore but some tech opinions.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    I don't know about you living in the worst place. There is always New Jersey, New York City and DC.
