Massachusetts Approved Basic Firearms Safety Course

You must sign up prior to the class date to reserve your seat.

This is a classroom course that will certify you to apply for your Massachusetts Class A License to Carry or Massachusetts FID Card through your local police department. Our certified instructors will cover the safe handling and operation of many types of modern firearms. Students will develop the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for the safe handling, operation, and storage of firearms and ammunition in the home, and proper transportation of firearms outside the home.

Classes are held select Sundays monthly from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Live fire will only be provided if required by your licensing authority. Any students that require live fire for their application will be escorted to the range at the conclusion of the class, weather permitting (the range is outdoors, so please dress accordingly).

This course is $119.00 per person. Upon completion you will receive your Massachusetts Basic Firearms Safety Certificate, as well as a $15.00 Gift Certificate valid towards your first firearm purchase.
