I've lived in Massachusetts for some 38 years and have had a class A permit since the present licensing system came into existence. From my own experience and from talking with others, I think that in general class A permits are easier to get in rural areas, especially western Massachusetts where I live, and much harder if not impossible to get in and around Boston. Of course, once you obtain a license, you still have to deal with a very limited list of handguns you can legally purchase. In Massachusetts, specific models must appear on not one but two lists in order to be legally offered for sake: the Gun Control list and a separate Consumer Protection list. A number of manufacturers - Springfield Armory, for example - have simply refused to submit the number of test firearms Massachusetts requires for certification, citing the expense of doing so.
