    Yup, Once she got back her MA residency she could xfer it to you and it's completely legal. Thats why I'm stocking up on stuff I like while I'm living in VA before I move back. Whats messed up is per the FRB ( I called a while back) those restrictions apply only to FFL's, So it's BS that they won't xfer them. I think it's there way of fighting the list. If we get the guns we want without them..who needs them?

  4. messed up in MA

    Talk about encouraging back room deals. If people want something bad enough they will get it one way or another. With that said MA police departments use Glocks. Good enough for them but not the people. Welcome to MA. I can't wait to move out of this state.

    It's a Federal law than any interstate purchase of a pistol must be transferred via FFL's, so no you can't avoid the restrictions on banned brands.

It is easy to tell on Glock magazines, and there are pre-ban magazines on the market including in MA. Glocks manufactured before 10-21-1998 (effective date of current law) that are on the EOPS roster are commonly found in MA gun stores.

    If you move to MA, you can bring your guns as long as they are locked in a suitable container. They do not have to be on the "list". You have 60 days to become licensed. Your non-resident license is void upon your relocation to MA. You have no duty to report guns that you already lawfully own. MA still has an assault weapons ban that mirrors the old Federal ban, so no guns with "evil features" unless they are pre-ban.
    This is also how I understand the law to be. Keep in mind you can own any handgun you want, an FFL "mistake" is their problem, but a banned magazine is YOUR problem and you could be prosecuted for possessing a new hi-cap magazine.

    Only guns on the roster of approved firearms are allowed to be sold here in MA.

    No Glocks, No Colts, No XD's, No Kel-Tec... Here's the list...

    Absolute BS... It's the result of liberal interpretation of the Bill of Rights...
    I believe these lists started with the previous attorney general. And there are two and for civilians specific models must be on both lists. For LEO's, only one. I can't keep them straight but I believe links to both lists are posted on the Four Season's (Woburn) gun shops web site.

    I'm confused. Doesn't the list show Glocks as approved as of March 2011 or am I reading this wrong?

    Glock redesigned their extractor to serve as a "loaded chamber indicator" to comply with MA law. I don't understand why that was required. Every semiauto pistol has a "loaded chamber indicator" that works quite well. You grasp the slide serations, pull the slide back, and if you see a round in the chamber, that "indicates" that the chamber is loaded.

    I checked into this DEEPLY (multiple calls to the CHSB/FRB and MSP over the course of a week asking the same questions and checking for consistent answers) when I though this would be the year I moved back because I own newer Glocks and a Kel-Tec, Anything you move into the state with minus totally banned assault weapons are legal, and bypass the approved roster. The approved firearms roster controls what an FFL can xfer to you, NOT what your allowed to own. Once your a MA resident it's also legal to sell those guns via F2F xfer. The only exception on getting stuff into the state this way is the mags, still gotta trade in the standard cap for crippled ones but thats not that a big of a deal.
