Smooth, simple and to the point. Thorough and hands on training. Great instructor. On anothernote I AM TERRIFIED FOR MY SAFETY AND THE PUBLICS because of a couple of people in the class I was in. They have no business around a weapon alone. I would not of gave them a certificate. They should of got their money back and sent along their way. There are rules for carrying a weapon or owning a weapon and they need to be enforced thoroughly for people like this. Nothing against them. They just need more training and taught how to handle a weapon.

I went to the MLC class and the training was unbelievably good! Both instructors were well-versed and taught the class with ease so I was able to follow along and understand the basis of fire arms. I highly suggest going here if you are looking to brush up on skills or for any first timers!! You will not be disappointed they are amazing!!! The basic fire arm safety class is really good for everyone- even for me who is a first time gun owner. If I could I would give this rating more stars!!! We shot at the end of the class after going through a couple of power points and a discussion about gun safety and the laws. Again thank you so much to Boston firearms for having such an amazing class! I will send anyone I know or anyone that is looking to you guys. Thanks again!

Really enjoyed the firearms safety class and I'm looking forward to taking more self defense classes here! I was concerned that the firearms safety class would be boring since I've already taken similar courses in other states. The instructor gave valuable information on MA laws, applying for an unrestricted LTC, and brought real life experience to the class. My favorite thing about Boston Firearms is that they focus on real life situations and real self defense material.

Really fun and enjoyable class! Took my basic firearms safety course and walked in nervous as I have never held a gun before, but walked out there with a new level of confidence. Instructor was very thorough and patient as my nerves were all over the place. Will be back for more classes and training as I know I will gain great knowledge. Kudos to Boston Firemans you guys rock!

The basic firearms course was completely straightforward. For my experience level which was a bit higher than average, to my wife’s experience level which is beginner, we both walked away with new tools under our belt for success. 10/10 would recommend this class. Attending concealed carry next.

I had the pleasure of taking the Firearm Safety Class on a Friday night. I found that Tom and his father were absolutely outstanding instructors. The class was very diverse and not only in color but experiences. The room was full of fear and insecurity, but the way the class was structured, the care and details in the content made a very nervous experience informative and successful. Outstanding !!!

While I was hoping to get some experience with 9mm, any handgun training at all is valuable. The gentlemen running the training are great at hammering in the importance of each part of proper firearm handling and ownership as well as the different regulations for not only MA but other states as well. I will certainly be returning for my concealed carry training.

Today I took the Basic Firearms Safety course and could not have been more satisfied. The instructor teaching the class was extremely knowledgeable and made sure everyone in the class felt comfortable from the very beginning. Going into today, I was very nervous. I had never held a gun before let alone shoot one. When it came time for live shooting at the end of class I was so nervous. In fact, I asked the other instructor to make sure I took the right steps in doing so. Immediately he said of course and helped me one on one. Overall, this experience was a great one. I highly recommend this Training Center to all. (Just keep your nails short....mine were too long and it became challenging!) Thanks Boston Firearms.I will be back!!

Tom was a very knowledgeable instructor who deeply believes in practical application tactics which really works by his instructions. I had taken the Firearms Safety Course along wit Conceal Cary I course which I believe is worth getting trained with a holster. He really showed the use well. I can say I will continue my courses with Boston Firearms in the near future and look forward to training in the proper way.

The instructor was very professional and took the responsibility of teaching the course very seriously. There was constant review of the material; prior to the revolver review; prior to the .9mm review and again prior to the live fire exercise. I had a difficult time with my first two live fire shots. Prior to the live fire exercise the instructor was quite clear that if there was a problem while we were in lane firing we were to raise our left hand. When I raised my hand the instructor was with me immediately and he knew why my gun was jamming. During live fire it could be intimidating or nerve wracking to ask for assistance but the reassurance we received, during the course, from the instructor made me quite confident to ask for assistance. Additionally, during the training I had made a cardinal mistake and it was brought to my attention and to the attention of the class by the instructor in a way that did not embarrass me and also instructed the whole class. Lastly, by splitting the class into groups I was able to continue to practice the format with each weapon by following along with the instructor from my seat. As the instructor repeated constantly, "practice, practice and practice". I also thought the posters with diagrams which were hung on the walls throughout the site were also very instructive and for those who learn by reading and thinking through the format the posters were quite beneficial. I will take additional courses at this facility. I left confident that I can handle a firearm without exposing myself or anyone else to unnecessary danger. I look forward to another class and additional training at Boston Firearms Safety Training Center.

Tom has always been a great instructor ( I took a F.I.G.H.T. class back when I was 19 ) and he still has the same demeanor. He's very knowledgeable and stressed on key things you NEED to remember for gun safety (red is dead 😉 while also keeping things light during class by making casual jokes. He made sure everyone in the class was on the same page and was comfortable loading/unloading guns before we hit the range which gave me more confidence holding/using one. I also have to applaud his organization, I made a mistake registering and he called me right away, he made sure to send us detailed directions to the range, and generally was really on top of his stuff, I really can't wait to become a member so I can practice more!

Signed up for the Basic Firearms safety class via website and able to do all paperwork online! I had to switch the class time which wasn’t a problem at all. The training center is located in an industrial area in Everett which has plenty of parking. The training consists of 3 parts: PowerPoint lecture which was boring but I assume is mandated by MA law. A video going over the basics of a revolver and semi-automatic handgun. The final leg of the training is the hands on. After a quick demo, we got a chance to practice multiple reps with real guns (and dummy rounds so we keep safe) under the guidance of the teacher. He had clear and simple instructions and emphasized safety above all else. I really enjoyed this part and think it was really important. The final part is live fire training which was fun and I felt very well prepared given the reps we had in the classroom. He then gave us plenty of time to ask questions. I plan on coming back for further training!

Informative and Fun. This is not your typical sit and listen class. You are encouraged to participate and he speaks in layman's term to ensure everyone in his class understands the nuance of firearm safety. The hours just flew right by and having to be able to do live fire is a plus. I heartily endorse Tom & Boston Firearms Safety as THE place to check out to get certified and for lane rentals!

I took the class this weekend and loved it. The instructor (Tom) made it not only informative and knowledgeable but made it fun with his method of teaching. They taught so much on the safety of things that some might just take for granted. This is a first rate learning facility and I'm looking forward to going back for more with other types of classes and practice with shooting. If your considering a place to take your class for a LTC don't waste your time elsewhere you won't be sorry making this your first choice

Wonderful course. Learn about safety and then move into real training. Practice loading and unloading both a revolver and semi auto pistol. From there you move to live fire.This is my first time with a firearm, and I would highly recommend this course. Plus, they offer other courses if you wish to continue training.

The course at the Boston Firearms Safety Training Center was timely, well organized, thorough, and enjoyable. The instructors were knowledgeable of the law as well as the operation of firearms (both revolvers and semi-automatic handguns). At the end of the course, we had the opportunity to shoot down the range and practice our newly developed knowledge of handling handguns. I even had the option to bring a guest for free, though for her to shoot, she had to pay a $20.00 fee to reserve the lane and cover ammunition costs. All in all, I strongly recommend this facility for certification to obtain a license to carry in MA.

Speaking of which, Tom has courses that train you to protect yourself in the case of a car-jacking or an attacker while you are in bed...in the dark. Nicely situated next to a brewery, this facility is top notch. Boston Firearms for a safer America

Great introduction to learn how to shoot and an introduction to understanding the laws in Massachusetts regarding self-defense. Shooting stance could have been discussed in greater detail (isosceles vs. weaver etc.), but other than that the course was thorough and covered essential topics like targeting, firearm maintenance, and drawing and readying your weapon.

The class is very informative and relaxed, nothing to stress about. The instructor Tom is friendly and has a good sense of humor. While we were taking the class to get our certificates, his dog would occasionally join us in the room. Since I was the only left handed person in the class, he made sure to let me know exactly how to hold the gun in both hands.

Thanks to Tom and Boston Firearms for a great class! As a veteran and a southern gal, firearms have been a part of my life. My 21 y/o son and I took this class together this week. We have taken classes w/ other companies and this was, by far, the best experience. Tom was professional and extremely knowledgeable, but also funny and accessible. This class was a perfect mix of information given through multimedia/classroom and hands on. Materials were presented in such a manner that everyone, from the beginner to the more seasoned, gained information and insight. Don’t shop around, just call and book here!!! Best Mother’s Day present! Can’t wait to go back and take more classes!!

The basic firearms safety course is four and a half hours long and is divided into three parts. The first part discusses laws and applications when to use your firearm, how to store your firearm, where to store it, and what kind of firearms and ammo are legal to obtain. The second part begins with state certified and approved education on how to take apart your weapon, clean it and than put your firearm back together properly, the third part explains and trains you on three main rules 1) always point your in a safe direction, 2) make sure your finger is off the trigger until ready to fire, 3) always make your your firearms safety is on, unloaded properly, and safely stored. The instructor also teaches you on how load and unload your firearm properly, along turning the safety on and off properly, proper aiming stance and grip, and last but not least applying this information in their gun range under instructor supervision.

Tom is highly knowledgeable and easy to learn from, plus his dad knows how to work a room and keep us laughing in between learning. Great place.

I totally enjoyed the multi state class on 12/14/17. The entire session was an awakening to current laws and regulations. Tom Cheffro and his father are both proson safety,rules and regs. and gun handling.The bonus package they provide you with contains a wealth of knowledge. The enclosed cd is NRA produced and the the follow up email with all the links is absolutely amazing I don’t believe there is anything more you could ask for. It’s all there in print and photos. Thanks for a my the bang for the buck(no pun intended) I highly recommend you to any of my family and friends

The instructor was extremely helpful and very easy going, I thought that I was going to be anxious and nervous since I have never fired or handled a gun but he made handling a gun feel natural and I had no worries. By the end I felt way more at ease and confident in feeling that I would be just fine I would definitely recommend and am definitely planning on going back to do more training.

I recently took the class with Tom, I was lucky to be in a smaller group. He was able to give individual attention and was an engaging teacher. Safety can easily be a dull topic but he helped by giving us different ways to remember the information. He emphasized building good habits and the importance of continuing your education with firearms.

The trainer Tom knows his stuff and highly recommend to get basic firearm certificate here. Never shot a live gun in my life until today’s training. With the training provided at Boston Firearms, you will understand the basics and laws.

I went to Boston Firearms not knowing one thing about guns and after their safety course, came out with a whole new respect. Tom was superb with our class, as I'm sure he is with every class. Safety is his number one concern. Can't wait to go back for more training.

John runs a great class, fun and informative. You can tell he cares a great deal about the material he teaches. I will definitely be back to take the Moon Island practice course.

Tom is a knowledgeable and jovial gentleman and a great teacher. It's obvious that he cares a great deal about education, respect and responsibility with regards to firearms. More than that, it's obvious that he genuinely cares equally about those seeking to be licensed, as well as those on the other side of the barrel. The hands on instruction that this class provides is essential. A firearms training class is nothing without physical exposure and actual practice holding a gun. For some in the class, it was their first time holding a firearm and it can be overwhelming. It's important to have oppprtunities to have opportunities to work towards comfort in a potentially very uncomfortable situation that involves firearms. The attitude of the course and those giving instruction is the exact attitude required to deliver important messages about self defense as well as caution towards not making regrettable mistakes. The teaching techniques used kept the classroom balanced between active awareness and taking things serious when needed mixed with keeping things light to take the edge off as well as personalized feedback on firearm holding and firing techniques. Though I was raised around guns and taught to respect and not fear them when being behind them, this was my first ever firearms training course and I am very satisfied. I'm looking forward to staying in touch with employees to get through the application processes and hopefully for future classes. Thank you for this education and experience.

The Boston fire arms multi state course was great! Tommy was very informative and very nice. I had zero experience with firearms and was very nervous, but Tommy was friendly and walked us through everything and I was perfectly fine. Highly recommend his courses and this place.

I'm not a gun person and this was my first experience shooting a gun. I just want to be prepared with knowledge--and have been thinking about buying some land in a place I may need a shotgun--so I went to get my gun training at Boston Firearms. Thomas was very patient, a good teacher and I felt very safe and not at all judged for my spastic newbie-ness. I'd definitely recommend BF to a complete beginner like me.

Peter at Boston Firearms made this a really good experience, he explained every detail before shooting, those detail made me hit the bulls eye with the first shot I ever took. Great teacher, teaches safety properly, I was really nervous and his method of doing things made it easy to adapt!!. Will definitely continue going to Boston Firearms Training Center.

The Boston Firearms Safety Training Center is a true gem for anyone who would like to get their feet wet with firearms. The Center will allow you to learn about firearm safety, get necessary certifications to apply for a license to carry firearms, train, or otherwise improve skills. The Center offers a variety of courses such as a Multi-License Training course. The courses are taught by Tom, who is a PHENOMENAL instructor. He makes a rather dry material engaging and fun. After having attended one of their courses, I look forward to making other appointments to deepen my knowledge about firearm safety and use. I would highly recommend the facility to anyone.

Great class gave a good insight into safety and how to use a firearm; even for me a person who has never shot one before, now I feel more comfortable with a firearm.

I took the fire arms safety course to apply for my MA LTC and it was a very informative and entertaining course. You are given an overview of the safety guidelines of operating and owning a firearm then you are taught handson. Overall great class.

It was an amazing experience learning about something I'm so passionate about but due to legal restrictions it is only possible at places like Boston Forearms Training. The tutor Tom is hilarious and never misses to add up humor to the otherwise dry content (no offense Tom). I would love to recommend it to anybody and everybody interested in learning about guns, regardless of 'any/no prior experience'. Great experience again. Looking forward to advanced training.

Easy going instructors, emphasis on SAFE handling of firearms that enables confidence, I had experience however Tom gets everyone proficient in the use of firearms. Take the Multi State live fire. All the information and questions you may have will be answered.

The instructor Thomas was very knowledgeable about firearms and how to use them safely. I liked how the basic firearms course emphasized safety at every step of the process making it ingrained in our minds. Thomas also cracked jokes and made the environment stress-free. I had a great time and learned a lot about carrying a firearm safely and properly. The live fire exercise at the end was very useful and a must for participants looking to get their license to carry.

I love love loved this safety course I took! I learned things I never knew about firearms...pros and cons and I was able to shoot for the first time ever...such a rush! I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is interested in obtaining a gun license! You'll love it and the father son duo teaching the class is the best, they'll make you feel super comfortable, entertained and most importantly safe!

Tom and the crew at Boston firearms training were great. Our group was a mix of experienced and first shooters and Tom made sure to go over all of the basics and spend time with the new shooters while still managing to keep it entertaining for the more experienced shooters. The group was knowledgeable, professional and easy to listen to. I'd recommend the TLC pistol course to anyone. New shooter or experienced.
