About us....
What Friendly Village Firearms (FVF) is: First and foremost, for several years FVF has been an education service providing US Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) curriculum-based self-defense courses in firearms, primarily handguns.

Since LD652 was passed ("Constitutional Carry" - no permit required) here in Maine, many apparently believe that they know all there is to know about self-defense with firearms. First and foremost, they apparently also understand all the safety considerations and feel they're informed enough, so they believe they know what one should know to keep from getting killed or injuring someone who they had not intended to injure, or worse yet, to kill.

Although fewer people appear to be interested these days and whereas FVF had curtailed classes for the last year or so because of apparent disinterest, several visitors to FVF have said they would like to take a course, FVF has decided to continue begin firearms training again, but on a limited basis - only holding classes a few times a year. We intend to also continue helping folks select and purchase a firearm, ammo and accessories that meets their self-defense needs or their hunting needs or fulfull their recreational desires. FVF will also assist with private firearms sales and with other related purchases like ammo, holsters and such. FVF, of course, is also available to assist with firearms transfers.

What FVF is not: FVF is not a "gun shop" in the traditional sense. FVF still does not carry an inventory. However, plans are in the mill to soon have some "common-variety" ammo available, especially for hunters and plinkers. Also, FVF is not a licensed gunsmith, but we know a couple of good ones in the area. Finally, FVF is not a pawn shop. However, we are federally licensed to trade in firearms. Our "trading", however, is primarily online purchasing. FVF is a registered dealer with several major distributors, e.g. Cabelas, Brownells, Davidsons, Lipseys, and Zanders - to mention only a few. In addition to firearms, most of these distributors supply ammunition and accessories: firearms in 2-3 days; ammunition and accessories, in typically 5-7 days.
