My priorities are making more money so I can give my daughter a better education than I had. I can't make that kind of money living in the sticks but if I was singke with no kids then I would love to

Frankly, even if NH were to enact gun laws similar to Mass, I probably would not move.
I believe rurak stated he moved here of his own volition and if and when it becomes intolerable (or he comes to his senses) he will do so again nothing silly about that.
Personally I treat the Mass. border like the Berlin wall and stay away from it because whatever is in the water in Mass. seems to corrupt the thought processes and turns normal people into flaming liberals! There is a reason we call them M*******s ask me sometimes and I'll throw my own little rant.

Yes, I caught that. But he also stated in the post above that his priority is to make money. For some of us, firearms are a hobby, and we don't have the desire or means to uproot our lives for it.

Agreed, but a State's firearm laws say a lot about the general level of freedom and opportunity in that State. Plus it may also somewhat dictate your safety in that State. Don't you wonder what would happen in the South side of Chicago if a bunch of those people were allowed to either concealed carry or open carry?

This in news to me and I don't miss much. You'll need to post a link to the law change.
You were given a pin number when you got your license. You are supposed to keep it on you at all times in the event that finger printing doesn't work. Which happens often, scanners crash, break and sometimes just plain don't work. Some people are supposed to use the pin rather than fingerprints (usually law enforcement or military with special clearance). If this is the case for you, you should have been informed.
It is likely that the range just doesn't use the fingerprint scanner. Many FFLs use the pins for simplicity often times the fingerprint scanner takes multiple tries or the FFL just doesn't know how to set it up.
Unless you can find the link to the law change, you should just assume you were fed a line of BS.
I do understand your aggravation though. You should get used to it. You will have many more aggravating moments revolving around guns and living in the state of Massachusetts.

I feel for you. Great gun pick BTW.
If you're in your 4th year you may want to start looking into your renewal, it is seriously taking many people up to a year to get it. My buddy went in 4 months before his birthday. His 90 day grace period is up in a week. He was just told he will be looking at another 3-4 months. That's 3 months of not being able to even take his guns out of his house. Complete BS.

Man I'm glad the only PIN # I need is for my debit card on purchase.
Sounds like Massivetwosh1ts is not a place I would want to visit let alone live. and I thought the Pats was reason enough to not want to go.
