The Minnesota Permit to Carry class will enable you to apply for your Minnesota Permit. It is also a great gun safety class. Gun safety and proper mindset are key components to the class. This class will also qualify for a non-resident Florida Concealed Weapon license. The Florida license gives you greater reciprocity if you plan to travel with a firearm.
You do not need a gun to take advantage of this class. We can arrange a loaner firearm in 9mm or .22LR. If you go through with getting your Permit to Carry, your permit will act as your Permit to Purchase. Minnesota law requires a Permit to Purchase or a Permit to Carry in order to buy a handgun or an “assault rifle”.
