Ammo Saving Solution

Courses of fire can be adjusted to reduce the amount of ammo used in a private class if you like. You’re welcome to use one of my .22 pistols to do the bulk of a class then transition to a larger caliber to reduce the cost of ammunition related expenses.

Due to the current shortage on ammunition, I can no longer provide ammo to clients for a course unless you are using my .22 pistols. This means that clients will need to bring their own ammunition for all other calibers.

Please give me a call to work out the best solution for your training.

Massachusetts Basic Firearm Safety Instruction

Massachusetts Basic Firearm Safety Instruction now available! I have been approved to issue MA residents certificates which they can add to their application for FID (Firearms ID) and LTC (license to carry) cards. Please see the NRA Home Firearm Safety page or the NRA Basic Pistol page on this website for class details. Let’s get in touch today and schedule a class together!

Carry Permits

Why I ask for a carry permit for defense classes when the state of NH doesn’t require one and how it benefits you:

1. I owe it to my gun clubs to ensure them that participants in my courses are NOT prohibited possessors of firearms.

2. I want to make sure everyone who takes defensive shooting courses with me is a card carrying good citizen (you’ll know more when you take my defensive classes).

3. You benefit from the reciprocity agreement our state has with more than 25 other states in which you can carry with a NH permit.

4. In the event you interact with the police, they have immediate evidence that you are not a firearms restricted resident.

5. If you’re a NH resident, and you sign up for one of my Defensive pistol application classes before March 13th, I’ll deduct the cost of a permit from the class. The class can be taken anytime after that date as long as you make your appointment by March 13th!

It’s only a few bucks for 5 years validity and takes less than 2 weeks to get. Contact me or your local police department to find out how simple it is to get a carry permit today.

Here’s a list of states which honor our carry permit, then a link to get yours!

New Year, New Skills

In 2020, resolve to put time into becoming proficient at using the firearm you’ve invested in.

Thinking of purchasing a firearm for self defense? Don’t know where to start or think that it’s too intimidating? Resolve to overcome this hurdle – responsible, informative, intimidation-free training is the solution.

We all need improvement and skill refreshers. It’s tempting to envision a grand self training plan with big goals, but you can get more out of professional training which provides accountability and realistic skill progression… And it doesn’t take a grand plan; it takes a quick phone call.

Don’t wait for the mythical future day: “when I have more time”. Take the following small step: contact me and let’s set a day and time for you to begin incrementally improving your skills.

Clean your carry pistol and magazines

If it’s been a while since you have wiped down your holster, magazines and your firearm, be sure to do so and schedule another wipe down within a month or so. Carrying concealed introduces dust, dirt, lint, moisture (from the environment and from your body), and other things which can lead to unwanted stoppages. Taking down your magazines is easy and if you carry them in your pocket, you’ll be happy you took the time to clean them. Pocket lint, papers, and (if you have lots of daughters like me) hair ties and things can end up in your pocket even if you hardly ever put anything in there except your magazines. Those things can work their way into a magazine and may cause a malfunction if cycled through your gun! A good dust off on the inside of your holster may be needed while you’re at it. It’s a good time to inspect your gear for functionality, wear, and broken or missing pieces. Regular pistol maintenance and lubrication is a good idea. If you haven’t shot in a while, at least wipe your gun down and make sure your sights, trigger area, and external components haven’t accumulated a bunch of dust or lint. Be sure to check your firearms manual for magazine and pistol disassembly/reassembly and manufacturer suggested lubrication.
