Several on rt. 2 and 495. Check your favorite hotel website.
Take I-495 (in Massachusets) to Route 2 west. Immediately take exit 39. Turn left at the end of the ramp onto Taylor St. Take your first left onto Porter Rd. and follow it to the end. At the end of Porter Rd., turn left onto Whitcomb Ave. (Whitcomb Ave. becomes Littleton County Road). After 1.3 miles, look for a driveway on the left side (small sign, dirt road, easy to miss). If you reach Old Schoolhouse Hill Rd. or Cleaves Hill Rd., you've gone too far.
State Laws to be aware of:
It is the responsibility of attendees to know and comply with all State and Federal Firearms Laws.
Your rifle must be locked unloaded in your trunk or other secured container. Handguns may be possessed ONLY with a Massachusetts Class A License To Carry with either 'None' or 'All Lawful Purposes' for Reason for Issuance. - if you're from out of state, you need a MA non-resident LTC. MA has NO reciprocity with any other state. No 'assault weapons' - we still have an AWB that is the same thing as the old Federal AWB. ARs cannot have a flash hider, collapsible stock or a bayonet lug unless they are 'pre-ban.' High capacity magazines must be pre-ban as well. Non-residents CANNOT purchase ammo in this state. They have to bring it with them... or go to New Hampshire overnight. Check other State Laws.
Specifically, we advise visitors to:
1. Bring a printout out the relevant exemptions within MGL (Ch130, S131G: https://malegislature.gov/Laws/GeneralLaws/PartI/TitleXX/Chapter140/Section131g) as well as a copy of the event registration.
2. transport according to law (unloaded, locked container or trunk)
3. refuse to consent to any searches thereof.
What better place to be a Rifleman? A stone's throw from Lexington and Concord. See the re-enactments at dawn. Walk the Old North Bridge by sunset. Eat dinner across the street from Sam Whittemore's position. We shoot a lot. Bring 600 rounds+ If you bring less, that's fine, just pace yourself over the weekend.
One day events require approximately 300 rounds.
