5 Star Rated Class, in business 10 years, thousands of happy students.

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.

I took this gun training course on Dec 11, 2023 given by the owner / trainer Tom WeitbrechtI. I was very impressed with his performance and knowledge. He shared with the class a lot of information not only on gun safety but also on state and federal gun laws.

Great class. Very professional and informative. Tom really goes into not only gun safety but gun liability, which was super helpful. Great all around!!

Took the gun training class on Saturday morning not knowing what to expect. Tom gave a little bit of his background and then went into instruction of guns/ammunition, safety and laws of gun ownership. The class was very informative and included by-the-book instruction as well as real world knowledge. I know Tom will be there to answer any questions that I may have in the future. I would highly recommend South Shore Gun Training to anyone interested in getting their gun license. Thank you Tom.
HIGHLY recommend for anyone looking to get their LTC. Tom is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable - the 3.5 hour class flew by. You are doing yourself a favor taking the class with South Shore Gun Training.

I attended South Shore Gun Training in Rockland back in June for my MA LTC gun training class. I was very pleased with the experience and knowledge that Tom provided. He made sure to cover all of the information in a way that was easy to understand and follow. I went in not know much about guns, gun safety, or gun laws. However after leaving the course I had plenty of resources and notes on what Tom covered. I highly recommend taking your LTC training class at South Shore Gun Training! I also did my live fire training/Beginner Handgun Training class (required by my town to get my LTC) with South Shore Gun Training. For this course we went to Holbrook Sportsman's Club and my instructor was Joe Morgan. Again SSGT delivered a high caliber training with very useful information and practical steps to understand how to use a firearm. I had never even held a real handgun before this class but when I left I felt much more comfortable. One of the main things they stressed in both the classroom aspect and the live fire class is to practice and actually get some more handgun training. Be a responsible LTC holder and carry out safely practice your Second Amendment Right!
