    I received a couple of guns from my Grandfather when he passed away. I just went to my local PD and filled some paperwork. There was a voluntary registration form that I did and that was it. This is in NJ though.... can't imagine Mass can be any worse than NJ..

    I think you just tell them (if they ask) that your grandpa lost all his guns in a fire and none were left.

    Cbrown, see if you can find some kind of local gun owners group for the state of Mass. and contact them for advice. I'll see if I can help you out.

    Try contacting these guys and see if they can help you out.

    Too bad you have to go through all that. In Missouri, you just take them home. I wish I had something like that from my family. Treasure them, they are a link to your past.

    Since it looks like I'm retiring nowadays, Im glad I joined this
    forum. Been watching more outdoor tv lately, and sure is lot of
    hunting, etc for Mass, and I believe some gun makers are there.
    I used to travel in that part of country, and Im sure gun regulations
    can be feirce compared to here in Texas. But I hope you find help thru
    the link that was provided.

    Some good advice just expanding on it. Do your research before you notify who you think are the proper authorities. Walking into the cop station with a boat load of guns, wanting to register, may not be a good idea. Not trying be sarcastic here. You want to be legal, but not get the wrong people in an uproar. Just my 2 cents. Welcome to TFF

    + 1 million!!

    Talk to somebody in Mass. who knows the laws before any mention of guns is made to any offical in the state. Trust me, I use to be a resident of Massachusetts.

    I believe what Glocknut is getting at is the fact that you "have to register" your firearms. You should not have to. It is against your civil rights. The founding fathers of our country are probably spining in their graves right now at the thought that a citizen of this great country would have to register for something that has been proclaimed a right by the Bill Of Rights Of The United States Of America.
    Things in our country ain't going the way they intended. :( :)
