Minnesota Permit to Carry

Permit to Carry - Minnesota

Just to clarify that Concealed Carry Permit, CCW, Carry Permit or Permit to Carry all mean the same thing, in Minnesota it's called a Permit to Carry.

This Class teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to the safe and efficient use of a handgun for protection of self and family, and to provide information on the law-abiding individual’s right to self-defense.

Using a firearm for self defense is more than
just being able to "know how to shoot a gun".

You will be instructed of the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to become a responsible permit holder.
