    Stateline is the premier shop of the area. Anywhere else you go is basically a shot in the dark. Dan up at Stateline can transfer guns to you in Shirley. He's great to work with.
    Four seasons is OK. They tend to have what you're looking for but the shop is always cramped and crowded.
    North shore is disorganized and a few of the guys are far from a pleasure to deal with.
    Avoid the old mill gun shop like the plague.

    Aside from that the rest are not really noteworthy.

    Welcome to ftf.

    I think your towns licensing officer is an a$$hole. If you don't want the person to carry just be honest and give them a class B. A class a restricted is just a kick in the pants. It's like saying you're good enough to buy whatever you want but you can't carry it.
    It Sounds like you might be from fitchburg.

    Four Seasons may be small but the service is great. They will spend the time that you need and answer any question that you may have. Carl probably sells more handguns than anyone in the State and his prices are just one of the reasons along with the service. It is the place to go

    Thanks guys i will be checking them out soon. But I did find this one place ( gun and sport north ) I went in today to check what they had in stock and in look to purchase my first firearm and I asked him if he carried any taurus 9mm and he told me "no you won't find any taurus around at all" did he mean mass .? If so why not ? I am sure they have mass compliant firearms I will double check taurus site.

    Yeah looked it up , but it's kinda sad I wanted the pt111 to be my first handgun , but since that's not happening I'm thinking of making my first firearm a shotgun if not the s&w sd9ve . What do you guys think
