I believe the limits without a permit from the fire department are:I have heard about a round limit you have to stay under so you don't have to pull a storage permit with the FD. I have never heard of having to lock up your ammo though.
I believe it is a fire code regulation not in MGLs.Please show where that is in MGL.
Ch 140 Section 131L only mentions locking up firearms:
13.04(1)(e) says you have to keep it locked up and in original packaging.
Get a tall locking cabinet. Easy peasy.
No one who has a serious amount of ammo considers just ONE of those.No one who has a serious amount of ammo can fit it all in one of those. That's like a "starter kit."
This works good as an ammo cabinet if you have the room.
I just stack it all on shelves in my basement. There is no requirement by law for me to "lock it up" so don't feel a need to do so. I know.....fire code reg....I don't give a flying f*** what fire Marshall bill thinks about my ammo storage.Looking for some convenient ammo storage ideas. I have been using a few large military metal boxes with clamp on lids and locks but it’s a pain to access and a pain to sort through stuff. I think they are old rocket or mortar boxes. Please share ideas and or pictures of things you have found convenient.
I was in there yesterday to buy triple 7 pellets, saboted bullets, etc.Yes. Next time you are at the MA Cabelas, grab an empty plastic ammo box and try to pay for it without showing your LTC.
The computer forces them to check.
Maybe we should stsrt a petition for them to also ask for an LTC for hunting clothing. It is for the children.
