Keep it simple ... something along the line of "all lawful purposes" or "personal protection". Your best advice will come from a knowledgeable FFL or lawyer in your area who has played the game before.

I lived in CT for many years, and it was originally tough to get a CCW because applicants had to go through their municipalities first, then the state. Numerous local authorities simply refused to sign off on the city permits. I believe several class action suits were filed over the years, and once the state law was changed, the process became significantly easier. I also had a non-rez MA permit for a while, but decided not to jump through the inane hoops every year, or pay the outrageous fee. MA is not a state I anticipate visiting ever again, so I'm not particularly concerned.

Good luck with your application.
Thankyou Sir, "keep it simple" duly noted and taken to heart.

Also, I appreciate everyone's responses. Thankyou so much for all the help. It's been my pleasure and honor to talk to you fellow Patriots. Thankyou so much!
