My son is moving from North Carolina to Boston's North End for work. He loves trap shooting and wants to take his shotgun. I understand that firearms in Boston can be a problem. How does he go about making his shotgun legal there?

Also, are there places around Boston to shoot trap?

Thanks.

I am sure your son has moved by now but I thought I'd reply for future queries.

Yes in MA you need an FID card for OWNERSHIP of long guns and a Permit for OWNERSHIP & CCW of handguns. I think you have something like 60 days to apply once you move here. You apply at the Police Dept of the town you live (or work??) in. Yes Pistol permits are MAY issue. Check with GOAL.org if you have questions. No need to debate this issue here, it is what it is.

Most towns outside 128 have small private clubs and most have trap. There is a club in Billerica (I think) with a very large Trap and Skeet set up. I have looked them up but not been there and at this point in time pretty much all public events (at all clubs) are on hold.

The Billerica club is Minuteman. It's a wonderful facility.
