    States issued FID/LTC application form
    http://www.mass.gov/Eeops/docs/chsb/frb_fid_lic_app.pdf

    some police departments refuses to accept that ( like Boston ),
    instead they have their own on their website
    or you must pick-up in person at police station

    Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Website
    http://www.masschiefs.org/

    List of Massachusetts Cities and Towns Police Departments Link
    http://www.masshome.com/police.html

    For a Concealed License/permit, you must apply to the chief of police in the city/town you live in.
    or that you have a Business in.

    Class A allows FULL CARRY/CONCEALED CARRY

    Class B , allows carrying only on your premises,
    or UNLOADED, LOCKED in a container, and separated from ammo in a vehicle

    Issuing agency has been known to RESTRICT Class A-LTC
    eg: Target and Hunting Only
    or Sporting
    or Work Only
    so a restricted LTC does NOT allow Concealed carry, but it allows you to purchase Large Capacity weapons and any other weapons legal on the AG list or thats not banned

  4. It's worth noting that NON RESIDENT Class -A licenses are apparently Shall Issue. If you have a home state license, and jump through the hoops, the Mass. State Police will issue you a license. I have never heard of any non resident being denied. It is just too lucrative a cash cow

    I personally have renewed my Class-A license 4 times. For those who don't know, the non resident license is $100.00 and only good for 1 year.

  5. non-resident LTC

    Caldwelljoe,

    I am from Ny and just got my application for MA non-res.

    based on your experience, can you give me any advice for filling out the 'reason for carry' section?

    Thanks.

  6. Tenter, I just put "Protection of Life and Property".

    Thats all you put

    did you receive a NR permit from Mass ?

  8. Tenter, Yes, that is all I put. That what I put when I applied 2 years ago and when I renewed last year.

    Do you have a NY license ?
    or any other NR license ?
    you must have a license already to get a MA NR LTC
    maybe you can get a Florida or Utah NR permit and then apply for MA
    NH is like MA, for NH N-R, you need to already have a license/permit from anywhere, homestate or N-R will do for NH
    not 100% sure about MA accepting N-R licenses

    Thanks for your reply. If it worked for you, I will use that. It is going to take me some time; I have to take an approved firearms course and get a doc from the Bureau of Criminal Records showing that I am not a criminal, as well as all the fingerprinting.

    Yes, I have a NY (home state) permit. It has target restriction though. I also have PA and NH non-res. My FL expired, so I am in the process of getting a new one.
