Firearm and Safety Courses at C.S.C.

The Centralville Sportsmen’s Club offers several firearm and safety courses conducted by NRA certified instructors. Courses currently offered are the “NRA Safety Course”, “Refuse to Be a Victim”, and “MA Gun Laws for Citizens”. All courses are held in the clubhouse. Dates and times are posted at the top of the home page.

For all courses at the club, checks can be made payable to “Centralville Sportsmen’s Club”. Cash is also accepted but we are unable to provide change. Once confirmed, if your plans change and you cannot attend the class, please try to give us at least two days’ notice so we can allow someone on the waiting list to attend in your spot.


NRA Safety Course

The NRA Firearm Safety Class consists of a power point presentation, videos, hands-on exercises, and a live fire at the end. All equipment, including guns, ammunition, eye protection, and hearing protection is provided. The class runs for approximately three to five hours. Participants are welcome to bring snacks. At the end of the course you will receive the certificate needed to apply for your License To Carry ( LTC) in Massachusetts. The cost for this course is $75 for C.S.C. members and their families and $100 for non-members. Class size will be limited to six participants. Note for Lowell residents: By completing the basic firearms safety course with live fire, such as the one offered at our club, you will be eligible for a restricted (sporting) LTC, which allows you to possess, purchase, and own a firearm for sporting and home defense purposes. For an unrestricted LTC in Lowell there are several other requirements that need to be met  in addition to the course we offer..
