    How has everyone been? What has everyone been up to? I'm hoping to be back on the forums more, seems like the last time I was on was years ago LOL. I started a local area Zombie unit. Hoping to have it up and running soon, still working out everything. Hope all is well..

    Nothing much. Just enjoying collecting S&W pistols (three in three weeks) and looking forward to some NRA-certified training next month at the Wilson Hill Pistol Club.

    My wife and I are taking the NRA Basic Pistol Class on 8/11, and I'm taking the NRA Personal Protection in the Home Class in September.

    What about you?

    Nice! M&P's? Or just Smith and Wesson pistols in Gen? I have been up to a lot the past year or so. I have been working on the Rail Road so to speak,LOL. I got a job working for a small rail road in the area and I doubled as a NH licensed public way master. It was a nice job with great pay and benifits, it was a federal job as all rail road jobs are under the federal rail administration. Sadly when my full benifits kicked in they claimed they no loner needed me. I think there was more to it then that, due to someone else not doing their job I hurt my back. So I needed time to let it heal up before doing any major lifting. That combined with the fact I refused to commit illegal acts by over loading trucks and signing the weigh bill. So now I'm back at home with the kids enjoying them and the time off. Thinking of starting my own gun shop, got all the ATF paper work filled out and I'm slowly working on the rest. As stated above I did start a local/state zombie unit(more of a local militia.) Still laying the ground work for everything but I have some of it done already, such as the patch design. Hope to sponsor a blood drive here soon and we plan on doing a food drive and trash pick up as well.

    The unit sidearm is the S&WM&P 40 LOL...

    The multicam patch is the one we are using on the units BDUs and the color one is for t-shirts and window decals among other things..

    Hey guy.

    Sorry to hear about your job. It's great you'll be able to spend some time with the kids, but based on my wife's recent "sabbatical" that lasted about 9 months longer than she expected, there's no time like the present to start putting feelers out for the next gig.

    Our current S&W armory consists of a Gen 3 model 4567, a brand new .45 ACP SW1911 Pro (178011), and my wife's SD9 VE. I was surprised at how buttery smooth and consistent the SD9 VE was, and how easy it is to break down. The 4567 is my primary CCW, but I've been walking around the house like John Wayne with the 1911 at the 6-o'clock position as an oversized BUG trying to get used to it. :)

    Good luck with your LGS effort.

    - Dave

    Well stranger...I guess that makes two of us back on this forum. I actually came back on maybe a month ago but still off and on. Not much shooting in my "range" at home after having an incedent. Had a few folks over and it got carried away. Now I got a neighbor pissed at me along with the law stopping by and somwhow my home insurance got wind of it. Pretty much put an end to it................for now. Back at work but still having the same Back issues and right now in the process of getting over a shot I just had last friday. Have not purchased any weapons lately but still carrying as always. Took awhile to get my renewal LTC for MA., since I was out with my Back I didn't renew it in a timely manner at the time. Now I got it and I carry right here in good ol MA. to and from work.
    I read your post that you were back working and now you're not...that sucks. Now, what is this "zombie unit" you're talking about?
    (All the above are MY opinions/suggestions ONLY....AND, I like to bust ball's, it's called having a sense of humor. In other words, no intent to offend anyone, so get over it)

    I'm doing well. I would be up for a zombie hunt at some point. The only thing that has happened lately is getting kicked out of Pheasant Lane Mall. (Still need to write others about it though.)

    I have a resident pistol permit in NH, and was really interested in a non-resident LTC for MA, but after hearing the horror stories of how difficult it was for residents to get LTCs, I gave up on the idea. I also work in MA. Can you tell me how hard it was to convince the MA Staties to grant you a non-resident permit? Did you have any special justification or need that swayed their opinion?

    Thanks!

    Hey, Sambo.

    Long time to Chat, LOL. I learned first hand how the whole back problem thing works, some jackass left me with the full weight of a rail tie in a semi bent stance. Carried it for as long as I could, ended up dropping it when I heared and felt something in the middle of my back pop. Still kinda hurts when I bend over and pick things up, for months it any time I pulled my arms down from above my head with any weight. Felt a sharp pain and like a tearing feeling.

    Glad to hear you have your MA permit again, I just got my renewal for NH.

    Right now I'm using the time off to study for the police exam and spend time with the family.

    The Zombie unit and above unit patches are kinda a state/area militia. We are still laying the ground work for everything, we have a gear list and we are working on the operations manual. Call signs and ranking system etc.. Went with MC for the units BDUs, OD green plate carriers, they picked the S&WM&P40 as the units sidearm, main weapon is user choice, com gear etc.. Everything is coming together, most of the stuff they picked is low cost and budget friendly. Your welcome to join if you want, we plan on having training days. Live fire range drills and class room classes, PT day. As for community out reach days we hope to sponsor blood drives and food drives as well as doing litter pick up events. They are hoping to take some classes as a group at the sig arms academy.

    The as for ammo cost we are planning on having a community(as in unit) bank account, every member puts up what they can afford for the cost of ammo.

    One major thing they are wanting to do is set us apart from the misguided militia's, they kind that promote racism and the Timothy Mcveighs of the world..

    Open to suggestions as well, only major policy they have so far is the three, three rule, meaning drugs, alcohol and firearms, Never shall the three be mixed at unit events..

    THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!

    You sign over your first and second born childern, agree to an inbeded GPS tracker/ kill switch. renounce your US citizenship and swear an oath to your new country of PRMA, swear to harass all law abiding firearm owner's. All while spreading the message of fear of firearms, damn things are so tricky you never know when they will jump out of the holster and start shooting on their own..

    LOL, but for real now. You need to complete training class and range test, pass your state police interviews and back ground checks etc.. From what I hear they can be real pricks if they want and say no, becasue of that J-walking ticket from years before...
