Our NE chapter is quiet. Anyone fancy making it noisier?

Life's a bit hectic at the moment, but I'd be down for a GTG sometime in June or July.

Either a lutenist or a luter. Well, luthiers make lutes. Luters or lutenists play them. I'd buy a phat lute, I tell you what.

I've never made, played, or fixed a lute, actually. "Luthier", used in the more general sense, of being an instrument maker/builder/repair-person.

I've been offsite for awhile. Back now, at least off and on. I'd be psyched to have a meet-up at some point, even if it's just 3 of us at one of our local clubs...

I'm up for a trip North, if I can legally transport into Taxachusetts. :)

I know I can't transport into RI (where I spend a lot of time). Sadly, I'm sure the feeling is mutual wrt MA.

Are we a "meeting of any organized group of firearms collectors"? :)

Hi, from Boston. Looking for people to shoot with. I belong to Braintree Rifle and Pistol club, but their guest policy is rather restrictive. I think it is just one guest per year. Anyone else belong to that club? Any other places we can meet up to shoot? Thanks. :ugeek:

Created account, and submitted request to join. Wow, that was painful. Wasn't able to find a way to search for the group. Had to copy-and-paste that URL.

That 22 rifle might have been the nicest I ever shot.

Your Ruger was pretty neat too. Image

Checking in myself from the SE part of Mass!

I've just received my LTC and looking to purchase my first pistol (s&w shield) in the coming weeks. I'm an inexperienced beginner and I trying to learn all I can about gun safety.

A few questions,

1 - How often does this chapter meet?
2 - Are there any liberal friendly gun ranges in this state or do you guys (and ladies) find political affiliation is not a problem? I'm hoping that most places have a 'check your politics at the door' policy?

Will do.

We meet as often as we have cat herders to arrange it.

Please direct/private message me. I know your name, but never got your email or phone number. We always used Facebook. You took me to MRA to shoot. I had the "hand cannon", you had the 22 bolt action, along with that brand new 22 which kept jamming. Would like to meet up again. Thanks.
Oh ya. Please cross post to Facebook, if you are still on Facebook. Or directly to the person, if you know who I am talking about.
