    Well, moving out of MA would be a good start.

    Leave it to someone in law enforcement to force you to do something. That was terribly rude of him wasn't it.

    Concerning my firing of the Sig Sauer P239 chambered in .357Sig. As Paul Harvey would say, "Here's the rest of the story." The Sky Marshal was teaching a newbie how to shoot. He had carried in enough Speer Gold Dot ammo to start a war, along with the largest pile of targets I've ever seen one person bring to the range at one time. (I didn't know when he brought all that stuff in that he was a Sky Marshal. That came later, as conversation between shooters is inevitable.) He'd hung a large silhouette target no more than 10ft out from the bench. When all was set, having instructed the new shooter on the workings of the P239, the newbie fired a round from the P239 using the Weaver Stance. There was a very long pause. Then I heard, "Where's the hole? I don't see a hole. I think you missed it. Try it again." A few more seconds then, BANG. Another long pause, then, "I still don't see a hole. You must be shooting way low." I remind you, this was a 3.9in barrel shooting about 10ft. I was 2 stalls to their right with no one in the stall between us. I stepped back and watched him fire a 3rd time with similar results. That poor guy. That's when I asked the Sky Marshal if he would like to let the new fellow try my Sig Mosquito. Being a 22lr, and having the same controls in the same locations, (slide release, decocker and mag release) he might feel a little more comfortable and perhaps not so apprehensive with a round that didn't snap. He "much obliged" me and we set the newbie up with the 4 mags I had loaded. He proceeded to quickly acquire the target at the same 10ft. I let him fire 100 rounds through the Mosquito. He gathered himself and built some confidence along the way. It felt good to help out someone that was interested in firearms and wanted to learn how to shoot. This was how I inadvertently opened that "Shoot my P239" door. After the first mag, I shot it one-handed exclusively. After the second mag I ran the target all the way to the end of the range (indoor). My results were no less impressive than they were up close. What a fine caliber. I ended up shooting 8 mags through it. I also let the Sky Marshal shoot my P220 Compact. His quote, "The 45acp! God's gift to man!" I'll remember that day always.

    he can't see but he sure do smell.

    Why only Class B? Class A LTC requires same documentation. Most police depts hold the safety class at no charge, so that you can get the Class A LTC. By the way, in MA, you can't buy a new handgun that holds more than 10 rounds. However, you can buy a pre 1998 Glock and large cap mag manufactured before 1998. So, you could have a Glock 9mm with 17 rounds.....only with a Class A LTC.

    Yeah its crazy here. If I qualified for a Class B then I qualify for a Class A. Its the same qualifications and I had the required training. I might get a Ruger Mark II or III for fun. I know that 22s don't matter with the high cap law.

    Thank you! I will be looking into both of those. The Kimber looks like something I would really love. I will have to see how it feels in my hand. I have big hangs so not everything is comfortable for me. I will try it out tho! Thanks!
