Why pay for a Non-Live Fire Course somewhere else and only be able to apply in Massachusetts. If you take this course you’ll be able to apply in MA, CT, RI, and many more states for your license to carry a pistol.  

(Great for people 15-20 years of age looking to get their Firearms Identification Card.  And people 21 years old and older to apply for your License to Carry permit)  (LTC)

This is a SHOOTING course.   The only way to learn is by seeing, hearing and doing. 

You will learn:

Safe handling of several different types of firearms, firearms storage laws, self-defense laws, transportation laws and much more. . (This course completes the live fire requirement that Springfield, MA, Ludlow, MA and Chicopee Police Depts.  require to apply for a License to Carry Permit.)

 Topics covered in this class will be Massachusetts & Connecticut General Laws pertaining to firearms, safe storage of firearms, safe handling of firearms, child proofing firearms, Identifying and unloading different firearms, cleaning firearms, different types of ammunition and laws pertaining to transportation of firearms. This class is also great for people who want to get into Airsoft guns (To learn safe gun handling). If these guns are handled improperly, there could be some accidental discharge resulting in injuries. If your child wants to get into Airsoft training then he/ she should take this class on gun safety.

At the conclusion of this class you will HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS AND CONFIDENCE NECESSARY FOR OWNING AND USING A FIREARM SAFELY and receive a Massachusetts State Police Certificate and a Certificate of Completion to apply to many other states . This course exceeds the requirements to apply for your Firearms Identification Card (FID) or License to Carry/ Concealed Carry permit in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Florida and any other state that requires a LIVE FIRE firearms safety course.

If you’re not sure if you want to train with us then please check out our reviews on our website or Facebook.

    This was my third basic firearms safety class, and by far the best! Dave is very knowledgeable of state laws and his class is in depth with scenarios for various concerns, involving firearms. Lots of valuable information to be learned in class but fun also…and best rates in the greater Springfield area!

  2. Donna Mancini says:

    Can you tell me how long this class is valid for to apply for a LTC? My son is 17. He could get his FID. Will it be valid when he is 21 to apply for his LTC?

    What a great course. Ive heard other classes can be quick and not very thorough. This class is the opposite. But that doesnt mean its boring and long. Dave knows his stuff, and keeps it interesting. He let us know all about the laws of firearms as well as massachusetts specific firearm laws. Alot to take from this course. Then we finished it off with a well orchestrated training range session. A great sunday indeed. Thanks dave and the rest of the ssd crew!
