Together with our team of highly skilled Instructors, we offer regularly scheduled group firearm courses for persons interested in both recreational shooting and lawful self defense. Our team approach provides more individual attention for students who benefit from the collective expertise of the Instructor team.

Experience Matters

We have trained literally thousands of individuals in New England , and receive many referrals from licensing authorities and former students. Group courses are offered in Connecticut and western Massachusetts. Private courses are available, but group courses offer the best value.

Firearm License Courses

Our comprehensive firearm license courses can qualify you to apply for licenses in several states. Courses include firearm laws, safe gun handling practices, firearm operation and nomenclature, shooting fundamentals, care and maintenance, etc. Prior experience with firearms is not required. Think of these classes as "driver's education for firearms".
