Our course is approximately 6 hours long, consisting of 5 hours of classroom time and approximately 1 hour of range time. Periodic breaks will be taken during the class. We cover various topics including, but not limited too: applying for your permit, reciprocity, where you're prohibited from carrying a gun in MN, laws regarding use of deadly force, and more.
The classroom portion of the course also contains an overview of shooting principals, efficient weapons handling, and safety. The remaining portion of the class is a shooting qualification to ensure that students can competently and safely manipulate a handgun.
