MN Carry Permit Training Program
This Program is designed for persons who can safely handle a handgun and
can demonstrate proficiency without coaching.
Our approach for carry is to conceal your gun (no one should know you have a firearm).
This program is taught assuming that you conceal your firearm when you carry. We back this approach throughout the course with reasons and examples.
Why our Program?...
This course is dynamic not static. What this means for the participant is a program that is always improving,
making positive additions and changes to your carry permit training. This class instructs the participant

your carry firearm. We include additional reading material and resources that provides the participant

instructors whose diverse backgrounds in education, firearms, and self defense, provides the participant with
a comprehensive education and training program.
