Would you like to have the option to legally carry a gun when you choose?



The Minnesota Citizens Personal Protection Act of 2003 is the law that outlines how we access our 2nd amendment rights.


This Permit to Carry Course is a required prerequisite to get your Minnesota Permit to Carry a Gun. This is a one-day class. Whether your an experienced shooter, new to pistols or somewhere in between, when you finish our class, you'll be ready to take your certificate to your local sheriff and apply for your carry permit.

Is this a hard class?

No.  This is a fun 8 hour class!  Approximately 5 hours of classroom instruction that consists of power-point discussion & video, followed by 3 hours on the firing range.  Class is held at the Willmar City Auditorium, 311 6th Street SW, Willmar, Downstairs.   Register Now.


How much does this cost?

The cost for this class is $150.00 and includes coffee, donuts, lunch, pop & water. (Sure it’s class, but we like to keep it fun as well !)

What will I leave with?

When you complete the class, you'll receive your signed certificate, assuming you preregistered. You'll also leave with the applications that you need and with several handouts. Mostly, though, you'll leave with a thorough understanding, as required by Minnesota law, of the fundamentals of pistol use, successful completion of a shooting exercise, and legal instruction on pistol possession, carry and use, including self-defense. Your Minnesota permit allows you to carry a gun in 24 states. Our class instruction also qualifies for the Florida and several other state's permits which brings you up to 35 states or more!  Register Now.
