Default Hello from communist Western Massachusetts

Hi guys, long time M1 shooter (my father's) just bought my own finally, SA 1954.
Married, 2 daughters, just paid off the homestead, YEAH!, And as you are all aware of I'm sure, Massachusetts is anti-gun. Well let me straighten that statement out, EASTERN Massachusetts aka Boston area is anti-gun. 2/3 of Massachusetts is rural gun country. The problem is the majority of people live in Boston and its massive suburbs and the majority of them are liberal anti-gunners.
We fight the good fight and hope someday to be a 2a friendly state again.
Anyway, love cmp and the opportunity it provides for generations of gun enthusiasts.
I have already received much help from the forum community and will strive to be a positive member.
Thanks Mike D

Welcome Mike D.

We need another patriot in New England. (isn't that a pitiful statement)
My In-laws are Boston. I will have to admit I love the place - if it just wasn't so infested with Yankees. Every place has its problems.
Again, welcome!

Hi Mike, I am up in Greenfield, I grew up in Feeding Hills near Westfield. I shoot at the Leyden MA rifle club, a CMP, NRA range. It's very very rural. We have a 50, 100 and 200 range for the HP matches.

Welcome to the forum! If you ever get run out of Mass, come on down South. Plenty of open space, country ham, BBQ, and M1s. Bet you would eventually grow to like grits!
