Certified by the Massachusetts State Police, this 3.5-hour course teaches beginners to safely handle, load, store, transport, and fire handguns. Instructors cover the essentials during a lecture-based session before participants head to the high-definition video simulator. Residents of Quincy, Sharon, and Weymouth require a Live Fire component for certification that is not included in this class.
Massachusetts Gun Safety
As an alternative to traditional ranges, Massachusetts Gun Safety relies on a high-definition training simulator similar to the ones used by police. The computerized system presents different targets and scenarios, and users fire laser-based weapons toward a 70-inch screen.
The training simulator uses laser-based firearms, which accurately mimic the look, feel, and recoil of handguns such as a .40-caliber Glock.
At a Glance
Though Massachusetts Gun Safety empowers its students to safely handle and operate firearms, you’ll never hear the sound of live gunfire within its locations in Woburn and Quincy. That’s because all target practice takes place in each of the the school’s virtual simulators, which complement the quizzes and lectures given by instructors. These experts delve into the basics of gun safety and state laws.
