I know that you cannot store more then 10k rimfire rounds at your house in Mass without a permit. I am getting close...err.... very close to exceeding that limit and think maybe I should inquire. I called my local fire department and they said one wasnt required. which I know is BS.
Anyone have one and how easy is it to get it???
I want to buy as much 5.45 as possible- that is why I have so much ammo in my basement.
I've had a permit since the 70s. It is legally required for powder (reloading), primers and ammo over set limits.
It required that I walked into the FD, talked with the chief or deputy and requested a powder/ammo permit for the max allowed under MGLs and CMRs. Walked out with the permit in hand and paid $10 for the privilege!
Very simple, especially compared to getting a LTC/FID!
