MN Permit to Carry FAQ’s


Florida Out-of-State Carry Permit Process

What are other students saying?

“I want to thank you again. Your class made me stop being complacent and not moving. Last night when I went to bed is the first time in more than 12 years that I fell straight asleep. Knowing that I can protect my family and not just be hoping nothing happens sure did take a load off. When I woke up, I went through my morning routine knowing that the fears that I continually had been dwelling on were changed from worrying to planning.” – R.B. White Bear Lake, MN

“Chris runs a very informative class and covers much more than concealed carry. Instructors in previous courses I have taken focused mostly just on the law and the firearm.  He brings a complete platform for self-defense that previous courses never addressed. I highly recommend you take this course and look forward to taking it again in 5 years.”
– M.V. Shorewood MN. – 

“Take his class. Excellent teacher.”   B.C. Minnetrista, MN – Private

“The class was informative and way beyond any other classes I have taken.”
– M.G. Watertown MN. –
