  1. Green Card Renewal

    So I am in a little pickle. My gun hobby has really taken a back seat to kids, work and other hobbies so I have not paid as much attention to it. I was looking in my wallet and my green card expires in 7 weeks. I also figured out that my C&R expired. As far as I know, I needed a C&R to get...
  2. Hunting target scope for SCAR 17s?

    I picked up a scar over the weekend and am trying to figure out the best optic for it. Research shows that the Scar is tough on scopes. I am looking to use this rifle for target shooting out to 300 yards and hunting hogs and whitetail out to 200 yards. I wear glasses so eye relief is...
  3. Selecting a 6.5 creedmoor platform

    A buddy of mine owns a ranch in South Texas and we hunt deer and hogs from various blinds on the property. Since we feed, all shots are less than 300 yards. Right now I am using a 308, which is total overkill for the white tail. I want to treat myself to a new rifle and was thinking about...
  4. Beginner airsoft rifle?

    Well I have decided my black rifles are too killy so I took a cutting torch to all of them and tore up my LTC.... Just kidding, anyway my 12 year old plays airsoft with his friends and really wants an AR-15 pattern rifle for Christmas. I have no idea where to start. Electric? CO2? From my...
  5. Strange dealer transfer today

    I went to a dealer today to do a transfer and they made a color photo copy of my license and the buyers license and then wrote the gun description and my PIN on the paper. I was a little taken aback by this process. If anyone finds this paper, they can buy as many guns as they want on my...
  6. WTB Converted M16

    Has anyone seen a converted M16 for sale in Eastern MA? Thanks, Chris
  7. Cleanest 9mm powder?

    Recently picked up a gen 2 KelTec Sub 2k which is pretty awesome, but being a left-handed shooter I am getting unburnt powder in my face. Right now I am using 124gn bullets with HS-6 powder. I am wondering if a faster powder would burn more completely or what my other options are. I have...
  8. UZI SBR with collapsed stock?

    I would like to build an UZI SBR with a 10.5" barrel. I would like it more compact than the traditional wooden stock or welded extended metal stock. Can I register it as a rifle with a collapsed stock? Since I will be building this on a new receiver that is post-ban would I have to weld...
  9. Driving a tractor on the road?

    Question for the police officers in the forum. One of my child's schools wants to have a hayride from a Halloween party as a fundraiser. I have a pretty good sized diesel tractor (20hp) and a trailer that I pull behind my car. I give hayrides every year for our block party and the kids love...
  10. Need a sturdy cheap rifle case?

    I was in Four Seasons picking up a few guns earlier this week and saw the SKB rifle case for sale. I paid $69 but now it is $59. It is an absolute beast of a case, made in America, and will fit a Garand. Not sure how it would fit a rifle with a large scope though...
  11. 1911 not locking back after last round

    Recently picked up a used S&W PC 1911 and it is not reliably locking back after the last round with any of my magazines including the factory mags. The same ammo and magazines work perfectly in my Ruger 1911 commander so I don't think it is the ammo. How do I begin to troubleshoot this issue...
  12. Machine gun dealers in Massachusetts?

    I called Zero Hour Arms today and the gentleman I spoke to was super knowledgable and helpful but didn't have any machine guns in stock. Who are the other dealers in the eastern part of the state that may have some inventory? I am looking for an UZI or possibly a M16. Chris
  13. why don't sold classified ads disappear?

    I have a bunch of guns that have been sold, I mark them as SOLD but they still stay in the forum why? http://www.northeastshooters.com/vbulletin/threads/274287-Jerry-Miculek-Mossberg-930-8-1-Shotgun-500-Westford-MA Chris
  14. Reloading 10mm?

    Had a strange experience at the range today. Just bought a S&W 610 10mm revolver. I shot a few clips of 40s&w and the gun shot like a dream. I also had some 10mm that I reloaded with 9.5 grains of 800x powder behind a 180 gn berry bullet. It was a fire belching round and I could see flames...
  15. So what is the C&R wait time now?

    How about 3 weeks door to door? Woot, woot, I must lead a boring life or the 57 CORI checks I get a year, so I can coach, volunteer in school, etc.
  16. Reloading for 308 Garand with 8208 XBR

    I need to develop a load for my 308 chambered Garand and have some 150gn bullets and 8208 XBR. I have read that modern factory ammo is "too hot" but have not been able to find any stats as to what that tangibly means. Obviously I need enough powder to cycle the action but when do I know...
  17. Move out of country, what to do with firearms?

    I may have an opportunity to move to Europe for a year or two and am wondering what I do with my firearm collection. I probably would keep my house but I am not sure. I don't have any firearm friendly friends here in MA that I could leave my guns with. Am I still a "resident" if I...
  18. Anyone reload 38 Short Colt?

    I am tired of fiddling with my 327 and 627 trying to load 8 moon clipped rounds into the chambers so I bought some Starline 38 Short Colt brass. I have read a few resources online that suggest using 9mm reloading data with the cases to make minor power factor. I grabbed some of my 158gn...
  19. Good S&W 500 starting load

    Finally found a 4" S&W 500 at a price I was willing to pay. I am no stranger to full house 44 mag loads out of a 4" barrel, but I have read this is a different beast. What are some good bullet weights and charges to get started with? I have read that Trail boss is a good starting powder...
  20. 4 face to face transactions a year appears in car sales as well

    I am thinking about selling my car privately and wanted to figure out my liability with the car. I found the following bolded text interesting. What is the deal with 4 transactions thing in Massachusetts? I buy/sell way more than 4 guns a year and am just an avid collector, not a dealer...
