Massachusetts approved firearm safety courses for handgun permits and Firearm Identification cards.
We pride ourselves on providing the best course in the state! The fee includes full hot breakfast, lunch, and all course materials, including ammunition. You will shoot both revolver and semi-automatic pistols. (Real ones, not simulators!)
Please note this NRA Basic Pistol course is a full 11-hour class, including 1 full hour on MA gun law as required by the MA State Police. Both NRA and MA certificates are issued. Breakfast starts at 7am and class ends at 6:30pm. Instructors are certified by the NRA and State of MA.
Pre-registration on this site is required and the class size is strictly limited to sixteen students.
Students must be at least 16 years old. Students under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian throughout the class day. (no extra charge for parent/guardian)
