This is a classroom and range live-fire course that will certify you to apply for your resident or non-resident Connecticut State Pistol Permit. This course can also certify you to apply for a Massachusetts Resident License to Carry or FID Card, or a Non-Resident Massachusetts License to Carry at no additional cost.

Upon completion you will receive your NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course Certificate. Any student that also wishes to apply for a Massachusetts permit may also receive a Massachusetts Basic Firearms Safety Certificate.
