Classes & Seminars
There are many reasons why Americans want to own a firearm. Personal Protection, Competitive Shooting, Recreational Shooting, Hunting, Collecting, and Constitutional Right are the most common. No matter your reasons for owning a firearm it comes with a big responsibility that should not be taken lightly. You MUST learn to safely handle and shoot your firearm. Responsible firearm owners hold safety in the highest regard.Even before you purchase your first firearm it is recommended that you take a firearm safety course. Patriot Firearms School offers the NRA Basic Pistol Safety course. If you are a Massachusetts resident this course is required to get your LTC-A,-B (license to carry) or FID card. You cannot purchase a firearm in Massachusetts without a LTC-A, -B or FID card. So bottom line, for step 1, it is recommended you take this safety course.
After you have taken the safety course there are really two choices for step 2. You can either purchase a firearm or rent one every time you go to the range. If you plan on only going to the range a few times a year then renting could be a good possibility but most people after taking the safety course and getting their license want to own their own firearm.Purchasing your first firearm can be very overwhelming! What caliber should I get? What brand name? What size? Revolver or Semi-Automatic? and so on…Or have you already purchased your first firearm and are not sure how to field strip it, clean it, or need some shooting tips?If you answered yes to any of the above then our First Steps Program is for you.
Step 3 is for the beginner or experienced shooter who needs brushing up on their skills or who desire a one-on-one instructional session with a certified NRA instructor. We offer a Supervised Range Timepackage that will help fine tune your shooting skills. Another great way to improve your shooting skills is to participate in a shooting competition. There are a number of locations throughout New England that will be glad to have you participate. They welcome new shooters! Please call 800-830-8848 or e-mail us with any questions.
