    I'm not giving up on Massachusetts by far, in fact, I'm still in the MVM and I'll still be paying attention to local firearms politics (I'll need to maintain a non-resident permit of course).

    I'm sick of the firearms laws here as well as the attitudes of some (not all) cops with regards to citizen rights. Not the least of my problems is that my father wants to pass down his old Colt .38 M&P to me but I can't legally take possession of it in Massachusetts.

    I'm looking forward to getting another 1911A1 or H&K USP to replace the ones that I sold before the '98 bans.

    The question that I have for NH residents is: Are there any neighborhoods on the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border (Nashua, Pelham, etc) that I should avoid?

    Not sure about the south, I'm from Northern N.H. where gun ownership is like out here in Idaho. But while I was in exile in Mass last year, we did shoot at the Nashua gun club severaltimes. Nice bunch of guys and have a good long range rifle range.

    I can find their number if you want it, but will have to dig around some.

    I live right on the Border (The Wrong Side). Salem, Pelham, Plaistow are all fine border towns. Nashua Fish and Game and Manchester Firing Line are good places to shoot. In fact, those two places are where I do all of my shooting now, unless I'm on Dad's farm.

    If you're talking about places to LIVE, then you should try to move further North, cuz the housing prices South of Manchester are as high as MA, and the Real Estate Taxes are much higher than MA.

    People who live in Southern NH but work in MA take it up the rump both ways. They pay the MA Income Tax, and the high NH Real Estate Tax.

    I will be renting, and as far as I can tell from the classfieds the rent is a shade lower over the border.

    I work in Andover at Merrimack College, so I won't be able to avoid paying MA income tax. If I thought I could get a similar job in southern NH I would, but as it stands I really like the job I have now.

    I have heard tell of the Manchester Firing Line and will doubtlessly visit at some point after moving. I'll also be perusing the selection at Riley's. :D

    Lake Sunapee & Newport. Too close to Ruger and too many guns so close by.
