I am NOT saying you are wrong because I know ****!! I am debating and discussing which should be healthy enough amongst adults without be "frustrating".

    With that being said, could you please decipher or translate what I found regarding MA law? I can only ASSUME you are talking Class B and I am referring to Class A. Not saying anybody is right. I want to know what YOU think it means.

    -----

    (a) A Class A license shall entitle a holder thereof to purchase, rent, lease, borrow, possess and carry: (i) firearms, including large capacity firearms, and feeding devices and ammunition therefor, for all lawful purposes, subject to such restrictions relative to the possession, use or carrying of firearms as the licensing authority deems proper

    It seems to me like you tend to believe the LEO because he's an LEO. Anyway....even with an LTC-A you can't have post 9-13-94 mags greater than 10 rounds. You have to understand the legal definition of high capacity.

    Also- subject to such restrictions relative to the possession

    Fair enough, which is what I am trying to do.

    I guess the part that gets me is, when one is preparing for your driver's license, you are given a book to study that contains the rules of the road and some of the laws but yet there is nothing in "black and white" regarding carrying and are on your own to figure out the laws. Makes no sense.

    Your instructor is required by law to review Mass law or give you written info with detailed explanations. It sounds like he did poor job. High capacity firearm = semi auto, capeable off accepting a mag that holds 10or more, mags post 9-13-94 holding more than 10 are illegal. For example, a brand new Beretta 92fs that accepts a 15 round mag is perfectly legal with a LTC A. You can use a pre ban 15 round mag in that gun and that's fine. That's all you need to know in that regard.

    hogwylde- You should think about taking More classes......."In Home Defense", "Out of the Home"..etc. I'm sure you will, but for now take things one at a time.
    This is a GREAT forum....there are alot of smart folks out here. Take the time to read, search and ask.

    Good luck!

    Im actually going to be applying for a Class A LTC as well in Westfield MA. One thing i am now confused of. I keep reading all these posts stating that its illegal to carry a pistol with a high-capacity magazine... Yet the Mass. Government website states that as of June 1st 1998, anyone with a Class A permit can carry any rifle, shotgun, or handgun with a high-capacity magazine. Please explain this to me.

    LTC-A will allow somebody to posses a PRE-BAN high cap mag, which was made prior to Sept 13, 1994. You may not have any high cap (over 10) round mag manufactured after 09/13/94. Somebody with an LTC-B can not have a high cap mag, even if it's preban.

    Snatale42 is correct in stating that. You also are not allowed to carry at all with a LTC-B, which to me, makes the LTC-B useless.
