Yes, Our class meets the requirements set forth by law in Massachusetts to obtain a Massachusetts License to Carry, a MA FID Card. We suggest applying for the LTC if you are 21 or over. You must be 21 to apply for an LTC in MA, but you do not need an FID to apply for an LTC. Applicants can apply for an FID card, from the age of 15-17, with a parent’s permission.
Where do I apply for a license to carry in Massachusetts?yptadmin2022-10-09T13:39:53+00:00
Your Local Police Department in the City or Town Where you live is where you will apply. Your local Massachusetts municipal Police Department (i.e. the police department in your city or town) issues Licenses to Carry (LTC) and Firearms ID Cards (FID) from the police department licensing officer. You will need to attend a firearms safety class before applying for your firearms permit in Massachusetts.
Do I need to take a Live fire class to get my LTC, or FID?yptadmin2022-10-09T13:38:13+00:00
Students who live in Quincy, Weymouth, Hingham, Rockland and Sharon are required to take a course in Live Fire training before applying for their license. Brookline residents have a specific range qualification requirement. If you do not live in one of these communities, we suggest taking the live fire class after obtaining your license, so the information is fresh in your mind when you are prepared/ licensed to buy a gun. You MUST take our Basic Safety class in Rockland, FIRST, before taking a live fire class.
Will I receive a “Restricted” license from my Town?yptadmin2022-10-09T13:37:40+00:00
This is going to depend on a number of factors including how a given firearm fits your hand and your specific reason for carrying daily. We can discuss these factors and come up with some suggestions that will work for your specific needs.

Before you schedule your class, we will take a look at the town you live in and their track record of issuing licenses. As a part of our curriculum, we provide you with a copy of the required application for your LTC.

Tom is a great instructor. He knows the area very well and does a great job answering questions and making you feel like you learned something. I found his class through Google and it worked out very well.
Tom is top notch. Clear and concise about a very serious subject. Your life and your family’s lives. Do not hesitate to use him as your instructor.
Great class, very informative and helpful. Tom has great energy and is very engaging. I would recommend the class to anyone looking to apply for a LTC or FID.
Very knowledgeable and makes the course engaging. Would highly recommend
Great class. Tom is first-rate all the way, deeply passionate about safety and keeping everyone educated and protected. Thanks Tom!
I attended the South Shore Gun Training MA LTC basic firearms class a month ago. The instructor, Tom Weitbrecht, was a FANTASTIC teacher for my first introduction to firearms training. The class was easy going, welcoming, and I feel prepared for my first foray into becoming a responsible gun owner. I would highly recommend this course because Tom is both friendly and super knowledgeable! 10/10
The class was very informative, comfortable, and concise. Everybody attending walked away as safer and more responsible gun owners
Tom is a great instructor and very knowledgeable. He gives a lot of info not just on safety but on gun laws so you are very well aware of what you are allowed to do or not do. The laws are very confusing and he does a great job explaining them. I’d give him ten stars if I could.
Very knowledgeable teacher. Did very well at keeping everyone's attention throughout the entire 3 hours.
Went to south shore gun training, not sure what to expect. Class started on time Tom the instructor was very knowledgeable in the topic and class moved right along. Lots of information, but enough for you to wrap your head around. Thanks Tom for a very well presented class. Graham
