Firearm Courses

Firearm Safety Courses


The Stockbridge Sportsmen's Club hosts regularly scheduled firearm training courses which will qualify first-time applicants for either an FID or LTC in Massachusetts or for a Connecticut Resident or Non-Resident Pistol Permit. During the summer vacation months this course may be suspended if there is insufficient demand. Note that Massachusetts does not require live fire, but Connecticut does.   

Occasionally we offer specialty courses such as Youth-Only or Women-Only Courses, the NRA Range Safety Officer Course, NRA Certified Instructor Courses, the Utah Concealed Firearm Permit Course and even the Multi-License Firearm Course (MA-CT-UT-FL-AZ-ME-NH), etc. These courses can be scheduled on an as-needed basis for appropriate sized groups.

We do not currently offer the Basic Hunter Education Course that is required to qualify for a hunting license in Massachusetts. Please refer to the Bulletin Board page for a link to the MassWildlife Hunter Education course schedule. All such courses are scheduled by the State, not by the clubs that may host them.

Firearm course announcements will appear below when scheduled. For additional information, please contact Robert McDermott, Instructor, at 413-232-7700.


We have just scheduled  what will likely be our last firearm license course until the Spring of 2021.  
This course will fill well before the course date. Sign up now so you don't lose out. If you sign up,
and later must cancel for any reason, please let us know so someone else can have your seat. 
Please read the course info carefully: It provides details about what to bring, how to pay, etc.

The October 10th course is full. We expect the November 7th course will also fill well in advance.
