    NRA Certified Instructors offering Firearms and Remote Medical Training and Certifications

    AFTS specializes in Firearms education and training courses to fit your learning styles. We offer individual and small class environments to facilitate learning with "your pace" in mind. AFTS offers customized trainings and curriculums to foster experiential learning. Courses are scheduled according to your need and availability.


    Our mission is to create a highly adaptive and experiential learning environment for all participants.


    A.F.T.S. uses “live fire” training and exercises. Although there is some benefit to computerized firearms simulators, we feel there is no way to exactly replicate muzzle flash and recoil management. Whether you are taking your first shots, interested in home defense or tactical applications, we have the courses to suit your changing needs. Our curriculum will grow as your skill level develops.

    AFTS is a modern firearms school that is based on experiential based learning. We specialize in firearms licensing certification, education and training. We also specialize in wilderness/remote medical training and "everything outdoors!"

    I'm a new pistol instructor but I have been teaching classes for over 17 years. I try to be as accommodating and comfortable as possible. When you're done taking a class from me you will have a solid understanding of pistol, revolvers, and shotguns. No live fire during kids classes or group classes. Live fire is required for the NRA basic pistol course. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

    I conduct classes for the MA LTC class once a month at Faneuil Hall Marketplace on the second Saturday of the month. My next class is on August 12th. The cost of the course is $75.00. I also provide instruction/certification for the Utah CHP. Both of these courses are no live-fire. For those who reside in towns that require live fire training, there is a slight additional cost to cover range time, handguns, targets, and ammunition. If interested, PM me or call Practical Defense Concepts at (617) 973-6441.

    As many here know, my primary expertise is Mass Gun Laws and how to stay out of jail as a legal gun owner in this Gulag.

    Mass Gun Law by and for Non-Lawyers - Seminar
    • 6+ Hour course on the intricacies of MA Gun Law (constantly updated to reflect any changes in information or proposed legislation)
    • This is designed to keep you out of legal troubles and goes a lot deeper than any other course on MA gun law (or BFS course) and it is taught in plain English not legalese!
    • Currently taught at Mansfield F&G www.mansfieldfish.com regularly on Saturdays & Sundays. Also available during the week for a private class if requested at no additional cost.
    • Available to teach this for a flat fee at any gun club that provides a venue.
    • Available to teach this for any gun shop as well.

    NRA & MSP BFS Courses
    • NRA Home Firearm Safety (enhanced version with live fire - 6-7 hrs) for your MSP BFS Certificate
    • NRA Basic Pistol (Instructor Led Course) - only taught upon request for those needing it for non-MA licenses
    • NRA Personal Protection In the Home (10 hour class plus pre-work)
    • NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home (NRA requires that you take PPIH first) (~16 hour class plus pre-work, over 2 days)
    • Refuse to Be A Victim - not a gun course but covers lots of things to avoid ever having to use a gun in self-defense!
    • LEOSA Certification Course - annual certification needed to keep your LEOSA status active, taught privately upon request.

    Additional Training
    • Moon Island Training (required by Boston & Brookline PD to obtain a LTC or for renewal) - Taught upon request
    • Defensive Handgun 101 & 102 - Taught upon request.
    • Additional training 1-on-1 with the instructor - Taught privately upon request

    Complete Schedule of Courses is always posted at http://2atraining.weebly.com- not everything is posted here on NES.

    ALL Courses are taught at Mansfield Fish & Game Club.
