The way I understand it; NO mags above 10 rounds, period.

The funny thing is I can drive 10 minutes over the NH border and buy all the 30 rounders for my ar and all the 25 rounders for my 10-22 that my bank account can handle. OBVIOUSLY an upstanding citizen of MA like myself would never do that

So if you have a 10 rd mag & you load one in the chamber before locking in a full mag that makes it illegal right.

No because you haven't changed the capacity of the magazine. Good question though.

I would agree, that would be OK to do that.

Ah, yes, the good old "not recognizing of the rhetorical

Well, maybe I'm especially obtuse, clr8ter, but it appears as though

your state legislators aren't being particularly tourist-friendly. It's

OK, I still have WYOMING, and about 42 other states to explore.

(As opposed, of course, to B.O.'s "57" (?) states...)

Did not realize your question was rhetorical, therewolf. I'm not sure what being tourist friendly, (or not) is, but either way, I don't really keep track. I don't know, it seems pretty tourist friendly, or at least tolerant, about leaf-peeping time....

Frankly, even if NH were to enact gun laws similar to Mass, I probably would not move.

Also, sorry about the rant.

Good point Clr8ter, but you are missing one thing. In most cases it is not just one law. Take the situation with the "SAFE Act" here in NY.

Yes I do have serious problems with the provisions of this blatant attack on the second amendment, but it is not the only reason my family is exiting NY, stage west. Over half of our laws are based on the "needs" of NYC, not the entire state. Our taxes are some of the highest in the nation, so high that in the 23 years I have lived here we have lost close to 250 businesses from my end of my county alone, both large and small, to other states and in some cases, countries. Our bigest export is currently recent college graduates, and the full time jobs have all but vanished in this region of what was once a great state. The solutions our elected "leaders" come up with are almost entirely ineffective in the short term, and totally Effed in the long run. IOW, Rats on a sinking ship.

When it was just one law, the pistol permit requirement for instance, staying is still logical and fairly easy. Pay for the class once, do the paperwork, get you references, go to the clerk for your picture and prints, wait, pay for and pick up your lifetime pistol permit. about $200 later you are good to go. I have had mine since 1998, so it was issued as a lifetime liscence. Under the new law, I have 5 years to turn it in, and get a new 5 year one, and there is no word of any changes to the cost. Why is it that my dad, my uncle, and I are not grandfathered under the new law? This was just one of the things that has made it clear that I need to leave NY ASAP. Don't get me started on how many unconvicted felons I know of due to the "SAFE Act" and it's provisions, while at the same time, our governor enacts a law in NYC decriminalizing small amounts of weed to cut down on prison overcrowding, and to lessen the harassment of "minorities" due to stop and frisk searches. here in the rest of the state, you will still be charged with possesion if there is even a speck of resin on the bottom of your shoe.

See where some of us are coming from? How long would you just stand there and take it if every day the same person walked up to you and pizzed on your shoes? What would happen if one day, he started taking a sh!t on them instead? " Just one law"? It's never just one law.

Sorry I couldn't live their. Money doesn't mean happiness to me. I can make better money in other states but my life revolves around hunting and fishing with my family. I live were there is a remarkable lack of gun laws. With a CC I can walk into a gun store, and there are 27 within 35 miles of me, and buy 100+ guns with no call in. The 2nd amendment is the most important one because without it the others don't exist. Just my opinion but life is about choices and quality of life. Each of us have different opinions on what that is. Mine is less money in a rural, friendly, beautiful state where freedoms of all kinds are still available. I have not a single regret for living here and laugh at those who compromise there freedoms for money.
