Mike has taught with the Gun Owners’ Action League (GOAL), Worcester Pistol and Rifle Club, at the Assabet Valley Center for Continuing Education in Marlboro and with the Milford Community Adult Education Program. He's been a member of the Worcester Pistol and Rifle Club and Gun Owners’ Action League since 1989, has been a Firearms Owner since 1984 and is formerly the  the Pin Shoot Chairman at Worcester Pistol and Rifle.  

Mike has also participated in Concealed Carry Courses for personal protection by GOAL and Tactical Defensive Pistol Courses by Personal Security Institute. Mike prefers to instruct in small groups to give everyone personal attention. However, should the need arise to instruct a larger group, Mike will utilize other instructors that have some of the same training as does Mike. Links to GOAL, NRA, and the State may be found on the Links of Interest Page. Other instructors that may assist in training have also undergone the same extensive training that Mike has.

Our intent is to provide our clients with all information and experience necessary to:

Help them and their families stay safe around firearms and prevent any accidents from occurring.

Satisfactorily complete a training course so they can obtain their License To Carry (LTC) or Firearms ID Card (FID).

Make them feel comfortable with the Use, Storage, and Transportation of Guns.

Teach them various shooting positions.

Offer tips on how to select, clean, and maintain a firearm that is right for their needs.

See what some of our clients have said about our instruction on the Who Should Take a Course link.

If you need to take a firearms safety course for an FID or LTC, we suggest lessons from Mike. Both the NRA Home Firearm Safety and the NRA Basic Pistol courses are conducted in a personalized, low stress, fun atmosphere. 

Our Pistol Shooting and Home Firearm Safety Courses are certified by the National Rifle Association and the Massachusetts State Police and satisfy the basic firearms safety training requirement necessary to get an FID or LTC in Massachusetts or LTC in Utah.

We also buy firearms. If you have any firearms that you no longer want or use, please contact us. We'll evaluate them and determine a value or will gladly accept them for class instruction.
