Comprehensive Permit to Carry Course
9:00 AM - 5:30 PM
This is a class designed for people who are serious about self-defense.
Many Permit to Carry classes serve a single purpose of meeting legal requirements. While this course satisfies all requirements for a Permit to Carry in Minnesota (as well as other reciprocal states), it goes above and beyond to help participants develop and maintain practical shooting skills, decision making, the mindset of self-defense, and the practice of careful and responsible gun ownership.
If you’re looking for the “Fastest and Cheapest” Permit to Carry Course, this isn’t it. We strongly believe that getting your Permit to Carry and carrying a gun are serious responsibilities and it’s our goal to ensure you’re adequately prepared for it.
Even if you already have a Permit to Carry and are looking for a renewal, this course will provide you with an excellent refresher for both your knowledge of self-defense and the law, and fundamental pistol skills.
