Mike has been extremely fortunate to have either worked or studied with some of the top firearm professionals in the country. Including:

All New England Tactical classes (e.g. Intro to IDPA, Defensive Rifle, Steel Challenge, Basic Concealed Carry) are taught
ONLY on an hourly basis.

These classes are tailored to fit your needs and level of experience.

You will learn up to date techniques and safe gun handling skills that will make new gun owners progress faster, and experienced shooters reach new levels of proficiency.
