    I thought about taking that instructor course but when I tried to gauge the level of interest in Massachusettes permits, it didnt seem like a productive endeavor for us.

    I'd be interested in your thoughts on how the instructor class/process was...

    It has to be. That way the LTC does not interact with the acidic tissues of the anti-gun bureaucrats....

    Well, in an 8.5 hour course I lost count of the number of times the instructor pointed a gun at me....lost count at 600. Funny thing is, that was not the worst of it..:what:

    Another instructor, for the shooting trainer, (no live fire thank God!) checked peoples sight alignment by getting on the other side of the gun and looking down the barrel at the shooter....:what::what::what::what::what::what::wh at::what:

    I even got 'talked to' by the classroom instructor for pointing the gun at the ground whenever he walked in front of me.

    Bruce, I've been thinking about the MA permit since the rest of my family lives there. The cost and the uncertainty of the process is what's been holding me back. I would hate to go through all that and then not get a "Class A" permit. My understanding is that you have to take a new class for renewals, too. I'd definitely be interested in learning more about it.

    I escaped from there a long time ago, but was very active in GOAL (their version of VCDL) while I was there.

    PM'd you my contact info.

    Do you happen to know if the Massachusett's permit requires some sort of registration for the firearm and ammunition to be carried while carrying concealed. If the answer is "yes" then I'd probably avoid getting it, but if the answer is "no" then I might consider it just because my employer has an office in Massachusetts and at some point I may be asked to travel there.

    I do not believe it is 'welded' to a gun or ammo. Just a firearm in general.

    I have my MA non res LTC. I did not have to take a special class for it. As long as the permit that you carry for the the state you live in is non restricted than you will have no problem. Do to an incident that happened some years ago involvinga womanfrom out of state disarming before entering MA then being killed at a rest stop all Non-res permits are aproved, period. Just put "personal protection" for the reason you need it and that is it. MA does not require a non res to register his or her firearm for the permit or for carriyng. You must follow their hi cap laws though which means only ten round mags or less can be used.

    hope this helps
