Special Permit Class Opportunity 

 We offer special permit classes in conjunction with our Handgun 201 pistol training courses.  The classroom teaching for this permit class will take place on Friday evening before the class date.  The next day you will join us for Handgun 201 to complete your permit class.

We are very excited to offer this class as it allows us to teach you all of the legal MN requirements in a class room setting, followed by a full day of hands on practice with your handgun (a limited number of loaners are available).  Please visit our Handgun 201 page to sign up.  We look forward to seeing you there for this premium permit class experience.
