** Covid-19 Notice, we are OPEN and providing training. You will receive your certificate to apply for your Massachusetts LTC, however, live fire training is temporarily suspended until ranges allow training again. Monitor our site for updates **
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 Basic Pistol Safety Course, but focuses on the specific needs of each student. We offer our students expert live fire training in a one on one training environment.
Our basic Firearms Safety Class is a private, one one one class (you are the only person in the class) that fulfills the Massachusetts firearms safety class requirement to apply for your Massachusetts license to carry (Mass LTC). The LTC class includes class time and live fire range time. We provide the ammo, targets, firearms and safety equipment. The laws in MA and neighboring states and where you may and may not carry a firearm is part of the curriculum. Students learn about semi automatic pistols, revolvers, single and double action mechanisms. You will learn the different types of firearm & ammunition malfunctions, how to deal with them and where you can and cannot carry a firearm. We discuss the licensing process in Massachusetts.
Class room training is conducted in Rockland, MA and runs approximately 3 hours. All Live Fire training is conducted in Braintree, MA at The Braintree Rifle Club. Live Fire Training runs approximately one hour. Training is conducted during the week, with classes starting at 9:30 AM in the morning and also beginning at 1:30 PM in the afternoon. Weekends and nights are a very busy time at the range, so we do not hold weekend classes. Training is conducted on a one on one basis, or one on two with prior arrangements. The fee for the Non-Live Fire LTC class is $150*. LTC classes are handled on a one on one basis. Bring a friend, share a private class together and save $25 per person.

We estimate it will be several weeks before we can offer live fire instruction and the Private Live Fire class will be available to students who have attended our class once ranges have reopened to instruction at an additional cost of $100.
LTC holders in need of “brush up” instruction, or re-certification are welcome. We take pride in our ability to help shooters understand the proper techniques that will lead to a lifetime of safe and competent firearm ownership.
South Shore Gun Training is fully licensed and insured. All of our instructors are licensed, certified and insured.
* Due to Moon Island live fire shooting qualification requirements, Boston and Brookline residents will require extra training at an additional cost
