I guess I've just visited the wrong parts.
What part did you visit? Texas has a really diverse geography.

Forget the name of the town. A bit southwest of Lubbock.

Midland or Odessa?

Is this about what it looked like?



Yeah, it looks like it's a little sandy, but that IS desert land. If you went farther East, it would look nothing like that.

Close to what it looked like.

I would have remembered those names.

Not ALL mags are restricted. Yes, the AG does have a large capacity roster, with newer firearms on it.

The "manufacturers need to go through some B.S process to even sell their handguns in MA" - yeah, not a gun law. "Consumer Safety" regs/laws.

Full auto - covered by the NFA, where some states just allow the tax stamp (though, it's still the chief's decision, and can say no). Becoming a "bona fide collector" isn't difficult.

No, the laws aren't really as strict as you want to make them out. They aren't nearly as strict as CT, NY, NJ.. just to name a few. Hell, the rest of the lower 48 are strict compared to VT.
When you say "buy pre-98" you do know that a lot of people can't afford that. And there is more to the cosmetic feature ban than a bayonet lug, it also includes collapsable or folding stocks and threaded barrels.

And yes, all mags are restricted, it is illegal to have a post-ban magazine with a capacity over 10 rounds in the state of MA.

And regarding the process that manufacturers have to do to sell handguns in MA, it doesn't matter if it's a gun law or a consumer safety law, it's still bs and I can assure you that MA is either one of the only or the only state that has it.

I just wanna know, do you really believe that the MA gun laws are not that strict or have you just settled with them and don't feel like trying to change them?

My Sketchy Memories as a kid driving to NM through Texas are obviously not your reality. See what I did, I lumped Texas into one big sand pit like when folks talk about NY Like its one big City, I apologize! Those shots are beautiful, reminds me of NY without the hills in some ways. Still no fan of the heat and the Toxic Snakes but I could get used to those surroundings and Texas Laws.

WebFos, Texas is many different environments. many parts are heavily wooded with large trees, rolling plains with grass, piney woods of East Texas, beautiful desert scenes out in Southwest Texas, the beaches along the coast, the rolling hills of central Texas.

just about any environment you find in any other state, can pretty much be found in Texas.
