New Aquisitions, firearms fun :D

I posted a comment on another blog and realized it’d make a good blog post.

Bill & I decided we moved Sarah Brady beyond bawling her eyes out, to searching for the razor blades this past week.

After nearly 3 month process, we finally got our permission slips from Mommy-state Taxatwoshits this past Tuesday.

On Wednesday we picked up a Springfield 1911A1, a Baretta 92FS w/2 pre-ban hi-cap mags (stupid MA AWB), and a Ruger Security Six.

Friday Bill went out and picked up a nice little Ruger Mini-14 in 5.56mm.

Friday night I spied a Sig Sauer 556 for private sale that was actually MA compliant, and we snapped it up Saturday afternoon.

Much fun was had at the range this past weekend (despite freezing our tails off in low 20F weather) and I can’t stop grinning like an idiot.

There are pictures up at Bill’s blog, along with a range report.

The Licenses came in!!!

OMG, WHEEEE!!!   The licenses came in!  I’m picking them up tomorrow morning!  WHEEEE!   Now I’m sure they’re Class A LTC -sporting, but that was already known given Lowell’s (stupid) policy of not issuing any un-restricted LTCs (unless you are in law enforcement or have enough power).

I just put in my application

I just put in my application for my LTC class A in Lowell this morning.  I’m excited!  The detective who did the processing is very nice.  Lowell is a PITA, though.  They flat out refuse to issue unrestricted LTC class A licenses.  I’ll have to settle for the sporting restriction, at least for now.

Frankly, I’m just happy to be getting licensed so we can begin hunting for what kind of handgun I’d like to own, and get out to the range for fun.
