    Purchasing ammo online

    I am sure the answer must be "NO" but the only stupid question is the one not asked.

    Can a resident of Massachusetts buy ammo online? I'm assuming "NO" since you have to present your FID or CCW in order to buy at a retailer.

    Purchasing ammo online

    Check the policy of the online supplier. Some keep a copy of the eligibility cert on file and that suffices. I know Chicago, NYC, are all no go for ammo shipments.

    Guess they can't ship to states where the Constitution has been nullified.

    I am not a lawyer, but my understanding is that while it is not technically illegal to ship ammunition to Massachusetts, the state Attorney General has a policy of harassing those companies that do to the point that it just makes more sense for them to adopt a policy of not shipping to MA. I have heard rumors that there are some companies that will ship to MA, but trying to get a random person on the internet to reveal them to you is unlikely to happen, there is a little bit of (perhaps justified) paranoia about sharing that information with someone you don't know in real life.

    I have had ammunition shipped to me, but only as part of a larger order that included C&R rifles. I doubt that made a difference, but I have no experience having ammunition shipped without a rifle in the same order.

    Thumbs down

    Basically, No, unless you are a registered FFL holder. In fact, this has reached a state of idiocy where most (if not all) online suppliers of handloading supplies (e.g. Midway) won't ship handloading supplies such as: primers, powder, etc to non-FFL addresses.

    Errrr, the State motto is :Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem

    So I guess the only online purchase would be only for a sword, maybe.......

    Ummm...again, probably not, depending on who you order from. Best bet for cutlery is to purchase from a seller on Amazon.com or Ebay- neither sites seems too concerned about where/what they ship and to where. I'm guessing their "catch-all" policy for "Buyer being responsible for following their local laws" covers them legally.

    I was in on a custom FG42 build from a shop in TX and had to back out because of our AWB here....bummer.
