I developed this curriculum after experiencing my own frustration while obtaining my MA LTC in 2002. The class I originally attended was rated highly and taught nothing. I was left unprepared but legally able to carry a firearm, which is a dangerous combination.
I took it upon myself to become educated in every way possible to ensure that I adhered to all gun laws and regulations. I spent time learning everything I could about my firearms, how they functioned, and where/when/why it is safe and appropriate to carry a concealed weapon.
In 2010, I decided to become a Massachusetts certified instructor to help pass that knowledge on to others so that I could help prospective gun owners be more than just legally able to carry, but to be ethical, responsible, and lawful gun owners. I have obtained several NRA certifications along with my MA State certification to teach several approved courses that allow attendees to apply for their MA LTC Class A permit.
