  3. 1911 Stuck with Live Round in Chamber and Not Quite in Battery

    Hey everyone I've got a Ruger SR1911 full size, and three different types of mags. It came with a 7rd, 8rd, and I bought some Chip McCormick mags as well, I was using Tulammo .45 230grain (this combo has been working fine since I bought the gun). Yesterday, I took it to the range and ran into a...
  4. Do I really need a barrel block? AR-15

    Hey everyone, I'm going to build my first upper from parts. I've got an upper vise block, but I read that it's dangerous to use the upper block to put on a muzzle device and that I need to use a separate set of barrel blocks. Is that true? I see a lot of youtube videos of people just using a...
  5. School me on safes!

    Hey everyone, Now that I've moved out of a condo and into a single family house, I'm thinking of upgrading my cabinet to a real safe. I know that some are really shitty, but only the $5k+ ones can actually withstand more than 10 minutes or so of a determined, well-tooled person to break into...
  6. Legality of temporarily storing guns and ammo (some in locked ammo boxes) in a car

    Hey everyone, As I get closer to my move, the logistics of my firearms are coming into play. The movers don't want to move the ammo or firearms (I wouldn't let them touch the firearms anyway). Most of my ammo is in locked ammo boxes, but some is just in the cardboard boxes and is being used to...
  7. Firearms storage while in temporary housing situation

    Hey everyone, As I've posted about before, my wife and I are moving from our red city and are still in the process of finding a home in a nice green town. With that said, we already sold our home because we got an offer we couldn't refuse. The new owner is letting us stay until the end of May...
  8. House Shopping - School Zone Question

    Hey everyone, still on my quest to move to a more green town (shouldn't be hard coming from Brookline). My wife and I found a place that we love, fits all of our requirements, but I realized after we left that it MAY be in a school zone. I searched a little on the board and google in general...
  9. Stripped Lower Storage Requirements

    Hey all you fine folks. Here's a question, I've got a stripped AR-15 lower, I don't have an upper for it yet, so I'm just leaving it stripped, no LPK or anything. I know I don't need to file an FA-10 until it can actually shoot, but do I have to treat it like an actual firearm for locked...
  10. Moving from red town to green town

    Hello all you fine folks! I currently live in Brookline and have T&H on my LTC-A. My wife and I are thinking of selling our place and buying a house in either Arlington, Natick, Needham, Newton, or Dedham. I know I need to send registered mail within 30 days of moving to both new CoP, old CoP...
  11. Building my first AR

    Hey everyone, I'm one of the remaining victims of the Winter Ares 80 group buy! I'm tired of having a stock and lower parts kit sitting on the floor in my office, so I'm going to build my first AR. I've been watching lots of how to videos on youtube on building an AR and I think I understand...
  12. First 1911

    I'm looking for my first 1911, there's so much awesome information out there that it's overwhelming. Right now, I'm leaning towards the Ruger SR1911, from what I've read it's one of the best sub-$1k 1911s that I can get in MA. If anyone has one, I'd love to get their feedback on it. Also, is...
  13. Tavor scope mount height?

    Hey everyone, I'm looking into buying my first rifle scope and mount. I have an IWI Tavor, so I've read on a few other boards that I may want to also get a riser. Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm thinking right now about the Vortex PST 1-4x for the scope. As far as the mount, is...
  14. My newest acquisition... IWI US Tavor!

    For my birthday, I decided to find a way to get the rifle I've been lusting after for a long time... So, I got a tavor. [smile] Getting a Tavor in Massachusetts is way easier said than done. The rifle by default is not AWB compliant. Luckily there's no "stock" so there's no worry about it...
  15. Lifting Restrictions?

    Hello! I've had my LTC-A w/ target & hunting restrictions in Brookline for a year now. I'd like to try to get my restrictions lifted. I know Brookline is "red", so any replies pointing out I should pound sound aren't helpful, but if anyone has any advice on how to go about it or whether...
  16. Zeroing new rifle sights

    Hey everyone, I added a pair of magpul back up sights (MBUS) and I'm going to zero them this weekend. Does anyone have any info on this? Can I still use the A2 25m targets? Should I mechanical zero first, do I follow the same guidelines as the A2 style for the front post, level the plate...
  17. Mass/NY/CA AWB Compliant AR-15 across state lines

    Hello, I'm sure this has been covered before, but I'm not exactly sure what to search to get the information. I have a friend in Mass who used to live in NY, he purchased a Mass/NY/CA compliant AR-15 back when he lived in NY and left it at a friend's gun shop in upstate NY. He wants to sell it...
  18. IDPA near Boston

    Hello, I'm an absolute newbie when it comes to competition shooting. I'd like to get into IDPA or some other action competition shooting. I live right outside of Boston, can anyone recommend a club/range within a reasonable distance that does that? Thanks!
  19. Topping off an M&P?

    Hey everyone, I recently purchased a S&W M&P 9mm Range and Carry Kit. So, I've got the MA 10+ lbs trigger and 10 round magazines. I can't top off my pistol by chambering a round and refilling the mag. If I have a round in the chamber, the magazine will not click back in and sticks out maybe...
  20. Newbie looking for a range

    Hello, I got my LTC-A today in Brookline, so I'm looking for a range/club close to Boston. It looks like the range I was planning on joining may not work out, don't want to go into it, but I'm looking for suggestions in the area. I have a car, so I can definitely drive somewhere. I don't own a...
