Multi-License Firearm Course©

Our Multi-License Firearm Course© is a proprietary 1-day course that will qualify participants to apply for a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit, a Massachusetts License to Carry (LTC), a Connecticut Pistol Permit, a Florida Concealed Firearm License, a New Hampshire Pistol/Revolver License, an Arizona Concealed Weapon Permit and a Maine Concealed Firearm Permit. The course is based upon the Utah Concealed Firearm Permit course and our proprietary MA Pistol License course (LTC-020).  If you apply for all six licenses/permits, you can legally carry in 39 states!

The course qualifies you to apply for a license in Virginia, although Virginia is also covered by both the Utah permit and the Florida permit. We can also do a classroom-only version of the course for Massachusetts residents without live fire, but it does not qualify for licenses in Connecticut or Florida (Florida is also accepted by New Mexico) so you will only be legal in 36 states.

State Requirements - Utah requires the complete presentation of their current course curriculum before adding material specific to other states' requirements, so we have structured the course agenda to fully comply with this requirement. The firearm safety and practical exercises that are Part 1 of the Utah Concealed Firearm Permit Course are 100% synonymous with the corresponding part of the Massachusetts Pistol License Course which we authored and Massachusetts State Police has approved. We also wrote a Connecticut course supplement, that when added to the Massachusetts Pistol License Course, has been officially approved by the Connecticut DESPP Special Licensing and Firearms Unit.

Live Fire Training - Both Connecticut (see Live Fire Required) and Florida (see paragraph following 790.06 2-h-7) currently require live fire to be included, so we add that segment last. We use real guns and real ammunition on an actual indoor or outdoor firing range. Note that computer-generated programs, dry fire, other simulated shooting tools, plastic bullets, air guns or any other alternatives are not acceptable to either Connecticut or Florida. We are aware that some competitive courses, especially those that supposedly qualify you to apply in Florida, do not include the live discharge of a handgun as noted above.

Student Materials - Students will receive a comprehensive CD which contains the current Utah curriculum, Massachusetts FAQ's, Connecticut FAQ's, application forms, interstate travel FAQ's, etc. A Utah application, Utah fingerprint card, Florida application package, etc. is also provided. Firearms, ammunition, eye protection and hearing protection are supplied by the Instructor.

Curriculum - The Multi-License Firearm Course is a carefully structured, fully compliant and approved course. We won't bend the rules, and we adhere 100% to the official lesson plans and curriculum for the courses as noted above. The process of writing and receiving approval for the Massachusetts Pistol License Course to compliment the Utah Concealed Firearm Permit Course, plus writing and receiving approval for the Connecticut supplement, has taken over two years. We know of no other course that legitimately satisfies the same requirements.

Pre-registration is required. See the Schedule page for current course dates, then go to the Register page.

Why should you attend the Multi-License Firearm Course?  One course qualifies you to apply for 6+ firearm licenses, making you legal in up to 39 states. This is a comprehensive course, and includes legal requirements, safe gun handling procedures, firearm familiarization, maintenance, concealed carry methods, hands-on live fire, etc. 

Why take a different course to get your Massachusetts license if it does not include live fire, and does not qualify you for licenses from Connecticut, Florida or other states in the future? Why not just take one course, pay one reasonable fee, and then choose from several licenses/permits that this one course qualifies you to apply for?

The Multi-License Firearm Course  will save you both time and money. It's perfect for RV'ers, truckers, business travelers, vacationers, second home owners, big game hunters, handgun enthusiasts, competitors. etc. Join the thousands of others who have already taken this unique course - sign up today.
