Started a layaway on this colt 45
These are never cheap
Prolly change out the grips
Got this hungarian sa85 in June. unfired
Already got a Russian 74 stock on it
I'm just not a Glock guy but my life long friend is. Extremely dependable! That says a lot!
I stood in line for Cabela's to open to then stand in line to buy the sale item SigSauer P365. I was number 10 in line and they sold 11 units. Not only is the gun difficult to find, they had a sale that was difficult to beat. Friday the 13th was lucky for me.
It's chambered in 9mm Lugar and boast a 10+1 capacity in a sub compact package.
And I thought my G26 was compact!
I look forward to reading your range report.
A bit smaller yes. However, your 26 has an excellent track record and the 365 is the new kid on the block. It has a ways to go before you can truly compare the two.
I hope to get to the range today. I will report.
Got to the range and was impressed. My groups were a bit more open but not embarrassingly so. The gun was very controllable and was easy to reacquire target for a follow up shot. I've not shot a 26 so I can't give a comparison. I'm plenty happy though.
I lost my Firearms Identification Card (FID) issued in Boston MA back in the late 1980s. I'm wondering if renewing it would let me buy a shotgun.
No crimes commited, I'm a law abiding citizen. Should i just reapply?
I suggest going to a firearm dealer. They will know what you need do to be a legal buyer. Good luck.
You needed a special card in MA in the '80s to own a shotgun? In PA all you needed then was a valid driver's license. Had a shotgun and a couple of .22 rifles that were purchased from the sporting goods dept. of a department store.
@lunatic59: Yes. @olbriar: None in Boston except one that identifies as a "trader" in the back of local newspapers located in what is now called the Boston Innovation District and used to be a truly sketchy neighborhood.
In Mass prior to the mid nineties you needed a Firearms Identification Card (FID) that allowed you to purchase and own anything legal except pistols (separate permit). These permits were "VALID UNTIL THEY WERE SUSPENDED OR REVOKED." I still have mine and that was stamped in all caps in red. Whelp, a law of some kind was passed, which may have been the Brady Bill. Anyway, Mass revoked everyone's permit and made them reapply once you took and passed whatever gun safety courses they deemed you needed and got permission from your local police chief.
My Great-grandmas single barrel shotgun that i lost the firing pin too is illegal for me to keep in my closet. I'm going to break it down and put the stock on my kitchen closet.
Those firearm safety courses cost money.
Is there an exemption for military veterans with a relevant MOS?
You can likely google up your current state's requirements for gun ownership. The laws are likely in a pdf that you can read at your leisure. I well imagine it will take some time to carve your way though your state's requirements.
Being as you want to be legal, and well you should be, you might try contacting your local PD. I'm certain they will be more than happy to point you in the right direction for your rights and state requirements info.
Unfortunately for you, you reside in a state with very strict gun ownership laws. Good or bad will not be debated here but I'm betting there will be a cost in revenue and time to satisfy your desire to own a gun. Good luck.
It's hard out here for a Bostonian.
We just got a new Police Commissioner.
He might be more sympathetic.
Luckily BPD headquaters, City Hall and Government Center are a single short bus ride away for me. I just gotta get off my lazy a**.

Swapping grips around on colt 45's
These black grips
Will go on a gun like this colt competition 45
And just got these grips on the first gun
Meanwhile I continue to horde the tupperware.
Check out the new light on the 19x (coyote brown gun)
It's an inforce 1200 lumen I got on sale for $82 shipped
I need to shot something soon. If i believe the sniper in "Spy Game" you can pull the trigger way, way back before the shot.
No Gun I've ever shot works that way???
Have things changed that much since the 1970's?
I'm no expert on trigger pulls especially across the many manufacturers of today. I mostly shoot simi auto pistols. Though they are designed with a certain amount of travel before they break they are far from "way way back" travel. Some travel is a good thing. A touchy trigger is dangerous.
I own only one bolt action long gun. It's trigger has more travel than a pistol but it's not a forever pull before it breaks.
Are you asking for the legal gun owners or the ones that carry the throwaways
That's insulting @KBU2.
Stictly legal here.
Yeah, we keep things strictly above board here.
My apologies but you did not specify in your post
