Major Waldron

Courses and Training

Providing a wide choice of training and courses in a variety of disciplines

Major Waldron’s has a large, dedicated pool of NRA certified instructors who volunteer their time to train people in the safe use of handguns for fun, sport and personal protection. We have a heated indoor facility with classroom, kitchen and restroom as well as a 10 lane indoor firing range. You are not required to be a member of the NRA, or Major Waldron Sportsmen’s Association to take a class.

The courses we offer are comprehensive and thorough, often exceeding the hours required by NRA standards to ensure that each and every student gets the maximum amount of exposure to the concepts and training needed to master the basics of handgun ownership. Our students come from all walks of life; young and old, male and female, athletic and not. Your only requirement is being a law-abiding citizen with a clean criminal record and a willingness to learn and have fun.

Major Waldron Sportsmen’s Association is conveniently located on Route 9 in Barrington, N.H. just a few miles off exit 6W of the Spaulding Turnpike.

Each activity provides an opportunity to shine and learn more about yourself and the world around you. Venturing is youth-led and youth-inspired. You’ll acquire life skills and gain experiences that will prove to be valuable regardless of where your future takes you, all while having a blast: leadership, event-planning, organization, communication, responsibility — the list goes on!


How will you lead the adventure?
