Do you want to get your license to carry? Do you plan to carry daily, or are you more interested in target shooting or hunting? Becoming a competent shooter is a process that requires expert training with real firearms. Each type of gun is suited for a specific range of needs. Selecting a the right firearm is like choosing the right golf club. Our LTC course contains the core curriculum of the NRA Home Firearms Safety Course, but focuses on the specific needs of each student. We offer our students expert live fire training in a semi-private training environment. You MUST take our non-live fire basic firearms safety class in Rockland BEFORE taking our live fire class.
