Thanks for looking for the Friendly Village Firearms website on-line and finding it! Special thanks to Alex Royal and staff at Royal Technology Management (RTM) in Harrison, ME. I put the site "down" in late February to make the domain transfer and change web site hosting. In about a week RTM had it done! This was the smoothest web hosting change for me ever. (Spectrum Business tried for 6 months and couldn't do it! Go figure!) In time, I hope to construct a better site in time to replace this one. The mobile site will eventually replicate this main site. Just letting you know. It's "down" at the moment, but soon it will be back "up"! Thanks for your patience in the meantime!
I've decided to discontinue our firearms education effort. At this stage in my life and my wife, Ginnie's, life, conducting classes in our home now-a-days just isn't a sensible thing to do any longer - especially under the present COVID-19 virus circumstances. However, on the optimistic side, Friendly Village Firearms (FVF) will continue to ply the FFL trade for a while longer.
The plan is to build up some ammo inventory of common types for those folks who call me and wonder if I have this or that and I don't presently. Also, hope to eventually have a few handguns available for sale, new and used. Looking to carrying either S&W or Springfield.
Meanwhile, stay safe and 'practice' your home and self-defense during these stressful times.

(Notice that may is italicized and underlined!)
Food for thought:
Just because you have a concealed carry permit, doesn't make you an expert!
Carrying concealed with or without a permit is serious stuff; r-e-a-l-l-y serious stuff!
If the "hammer" drops and you have to defend yourself inside or outside your home, the law will more appreciate the fact you've received training and qualified for your permit.
Plan that there's a good chance that, without training, the book may be thrown at you if you screw up, which is more likely when you think you know what you're doing and you're thinking wrong!
When you carry without a permit, you should realize your responsibility.
Sure, you may have saved yourself the permit fee. Instead, why not spend a few dollars getting educated; trained; prepared?
Think about that! Remember the old, related expression? Don't go off half-cocked!
The greatest danger to your well being might be your over confidence.
