question - LTC application
I will be applying for my LTC in MA in a couple days. I've completed the required training, have my letters of recommendation and am pretty much ready to roll.
I want the LTC so that I'm able to purchase various firearms with larger capacity so I'm not constantly reloading while practicing on the range. I'd like to be able to target shoot with pistols, rifles, etc for well rounded skills. Of course in the back of my mind, personal protection in the ungodly event that it is needed....
But, I've heard that some licensing authorities don't like to hear 'personal protection' as a reason and if you just state 'target purposes' you may end up with restrictions saying you can own the larger capacity and pistols but cannot carry them concealed.
Now, I really have no intent of keeping a pistol on me in day-to-day life and will probably not be carrying day in and day out. But, I don't want to be restricted...obviously.
My reasons for requesting the LTC are lawful target/sport/practice, the ability to learn and understand different firearms, and possible job opportunities in security/armored transit in case my current job goes away...still gutta pay the bills.
What are some other reasons to justify the LTC that can augment my current justifications?
