Class Description

Handgun and pistol training in Massachusetts
This class is for anyone and everyone. If you don’t know what gun to buy for target practice, personal defense or competing then this class is for you. All information presented in this class is a compilation of information that is based on the knowledge obtained from the past 36 years of my being a gun owner, 10 years as a gun dealer, 30 years of being a competitor, and 15 years a firearms Instructor.
This class discusses target / practice guns, defense guns and competition guns. Which guns are good to buy and which ones aren’t. How to purchase the correct defense gun for you. Defense rounds and the ballistics on some of those rounds, how to pick the right holster, the pros and cons between a semi auto and a revolver as a defense weapon. The different types of competitions and the equipment that is needed to compete in them.
Taking notes is recommended since this is an intense class with a lot of helpful information.

We offer Massachusetts State Police approved training for those interested in obtaining their Massachusetts Class A license to Carry (LTC) or Firearm Identification Card (FID). Those seeking a Mass firearm license must show proof of this training prior to applying for their license. At the end of one session you will have your certificate.
The certification course we teach for Mass. firearm licensing certification is the National Rifle Association (NRA) Home Safety Course (LTC-007). This is the most popular course approved by the NRA and it is perfect for those with no experience with firearms as well as education for those who have experience. Men and women are both equally successful.
