Tombstone Trading Company began as a firearms training company in 1994 and still offers comprehensive firearms training to this day!

Our one-day class takes both experienced and novice shooters through the NRA's Basic Pistol Safety training class, which is a requirement for anyone in Massachusetts that wishes to obtain a Massachusetts License To Carry (LTC) or Firearms Identification Card (FID Card).

With over a combined 40 years of firearms training experience, we feel that we offer one of the best firearms courses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts!

Richard LaFranchise

For the past seventeen years, Dick has provided our youth, parents and adults alike, the opportunity to explore the shooting experience at the Mass Outdoor Expo (Big MOE), held each year in late September, where hundreds get to shoot Air Rifle, Rifle and Trap.

The shooting sports have always been my favorite, with competitive Trap and Handgun topping the list. As a past member of the Hamilton Pistol Team, shooting in several central Mass leagues, along with a teaching/training background, I am passionate as an NRA and Mass State Police certified instructor to pass along knowledge for safely owning and shooting firearms. 

My NRA certifications include Range Safety Officer, Certified Pistol and Personal Protection in the Home and certified as a Basic Firearms Instructor by the Mass State Police.
