Q: What is the minimum age requirement?

A:  In Massachusetts, you must be over 21 years of age to be approved for your LTC (license to carry) and over 15 years of age – with parental consent – to apply for your FID (Firearms ID Card).  The state of Massachusetts will allow someone who is 14 years of age to take this class so that the paperwork can be approved on their 15th birthday.  However, Massachusetts will not approve that application for an FID until you actually turn 15. If you are under 18, you MUST have written parental consent to take this class AND to apply for your FID.  And if the student is under 18, the parent does not need to be present for the class.
