Our Massachusetts Licensing (LTC/FID) course is designed to cover the basics of pistol, rifle, and shotgun safety for residents interested in obtaining a License to Carry (LTC) or Firearms Identification (FID) card in the state of Massachusetts. This course includes in-class discussion as well as hands-on experience where students will have the opportunity to handle a variety of pistols, rifles, and shotguns in the classroom. We will also cover the fundamental knowledge and approach to handling, operating, possessing, storing, and transporting a firearm safely and in accordance with state and federal firearms laws.
Upon completing the Massachusetts Licensing (LTC/FID) course, students will receive the Massachusetts Basic Firearms Safety (BFS) certification, which is required to apply for an LTC/FID license in Massachusetts, and the Home Firearm Safety certification from the National Rifle Association (NRA). Our students will also leave with a copy of the Patriot Firearms School law packet that covers the Massachusetts licensing structure, MA state and federal laws, proper storage and transportation of firearms, a Massachusetts application, and a list of resources to useful web sites and groups.
