Sportsmen's Club hosts regularly scheduled firearm training courses which will qualify first-time applicants for
either an FID or LTC in Massachusetts or for a Connecticut Resident or Non-Resident Pistol Permit. During the summer vacation
months this course may be suspended if there is insufficient demand. Note that Massachusetts does not require live fire,
but Connecticut does.
Occasionally we offer specialty
courses such as Youth-Only or Women-Only Courses, the NRA Range Safety Officer Course, NRA Certified Instructor
Courses, the Utah Concealed Firearm Permit Course and even the Multi-License Firearm Course (MA-CT-UT-FL-AZ-ME-NH), etc.
These courses can be scheduled on an as-needed basis for appropriate sized groups.
We do not currently
offer the Basic Hunter Education Course that is required to qualify for a hunting license in Massachusetts. Please refer to
the Bulletin Board page for a link to the MassWildlife Hunter Education course schedule. All such courses are scheduled by
the State, not by the clubs that may host them.
Firearm course announcements will
appear below when scheduled. For additional information, please contact Robert McDermott, Instructor, at 413-232-7700.
