This course fulfills the Massachusetts State Police LTC Basic Firearms Safety Course Requirement Certification LTC-007 for FID Cards and LTC's. You will receive the Massachusetts State Police Certificate needed for the application process and an NRA Certificate, both suitable for framing.
Program Length: Approximately 4 1/2 - 5 hours (to complete the course in one session!)
Program Type: Non Live Fire, but you will handle Revolvers, Semiautomatic Pistols, Rifles and Shotguns.
This course has limited seating due to the amount of time required for firearms handling to stay within the approximate 4 1/2 - 5 hour length. It's also designed to be a non stressed, fun and friendly environment where everyone can learn what they need to know without any anxiety. You are not a number in the course and won't get pushed through like one. You get the individualized attention that you deserve.
Light refreshments and snacks are served. You will receive a Firearms Safety Manual and handouts covering Massachusetts Firearms Laws and the Application Process. You will also receive a $20 Gift Coupons for an area gun shop for successfully completing the course and a 20% off coupon for attending any First Steps Pistol Orientation or Concealed Carry Concepts Course.
