My name is Tom Walker. I am an NRA and Massachusetts State Police certified instructor of both Home Firearm Safety and Basic Pistol. I’ve been shooting guns since I was a little kid and have always enjoyed teaching others how to handle and fire guns safely and effectively. Many of us were raised in homes without guns and may have even developed a fear or aversion to them because of what we see on the news or hear from others who disapprove of guns. It is my hope that I can help to educate the curious as well as the reluctant about guns and show that, with the proper knowledge and respect, guns can be incredible fun, valuable, and safe tools.
My teaching style is based on practical learning and application and my focus is on students who are new to firearms. The goal of my classes is to develop confidence and pride in my students by developing a core knowledge that they can continue to grow.
