NRA Pistol Blended Learning Goes On-Line

The NRA BNlended learning model for the Basic Pistol course has been in development for the last several years, and has finally gone live as of 2016.

Using this new model all of the "classroom" instruction is now completed in an on-line forum. The student can glo through the materials at their own pace, at a place and time that is convenient to them.

When you're done you can contact an NRA Instructor to complete the firearms handling and shooting portions of the course.

What's New at Response Ability Firearms Training, LLC

Response Ability now offers NRA Instructor Courses!

Our Chief Instructor has recently completed the NRA Training Counselor Workshop, and has been appointed an NRA Training Counselor, authorized to teach NRA Instructor Courses for Home Firearm Safety, Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun and Personal Protection. We have already received significant interest in instructor level courses, so check back often for scheduling.

Response Ability Firearms Training, LLC now offers Massachusetts Approved Training!

Well, it has been a long road, but it's finally done. Our instructors have been authorized by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to teach the courses necessary for a License to Carry.

While these are the same courses we've been teaching all along, people attending will now have the option of receiving the Massachusetts Training Compliance Certificate as proof of training required in the licensing process. Those opting for a Massachusetts Training Compliance Certificate will receive additional training in the Massachusetts laws pertaining to owning, carying, storing and transporting firearms.

We are very excited to be able to offer this benefit to our clients.

Response Ability Firearms Training Pepper Spray

Pepper spray is a portable and inexpensive addition to your self defense toolbox, and can be a potent means of stunning or disabling an attacker. Response Ability is proud to announce that we has added Pepper Spray training to our course offerings.

We have added two courses; a certification class for Law Enforcment agancies and officers, and a basic pepper spray training for civilians.

Join the NRA

Join the NRA Today, the media and opportunistic politicians are attacking gun rights and the NRA as never before. Whatever your view, it is a sure thing that if the NRA did not exist today, we would now be living under gun laws as bad as those in Great Britain and similar countries. "Needs-based" licensing, registration, arbitrary bans on whatever is called the criminals' "weapon of choice" by those seeking to make easy political points at the expense of law-abiding citizens, storage requirements that make defense use practically impossible...these are the laws we would almost certainly be living under today, if the NRA did not exist.

Aside from their political advocacy of gun rights, the NRA also provides a number of valuable community services: gun safety materials and classes, shooting competitions and criminal justice reform policy suggestions that would punish violent criminals HARD. In fact no single organization conducts more firearms safety training than the NRA.

The truth is that your second amendment "right" to keep and bear arms is the only right guaranteed to you in the Constitution that you need a permit to exercise. It is also true that gun control laws only affect the law abiding. Criminals, by definition, really don't care much about the law.

So what can you do? How do you preserve and protect your rights? One man, standing alone, can not do much. But when we stand together our collective voices are heard. The NRA brings us together, and provides that voice.

There is not a more effective voice for the firearms owner in this country, and there is no organization that does more to protect our second amendment rights than the NRA.

Protect your rights. Join the NRA today and receive a $10.00 discount on your annual membership.
