Minnesota Permit to Carry

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.

This is not a quick in and out the door class!  FSE offers you a very comprehensive permit class.

This is an five-seven hour course, includes classroom and range time.

The Permit to Carry Course participants must be law abiding, adults (at least 20 years old), and be experienced shooters
(shooters must be able to show mastery of the basic skills of safe gun handling and marksmanship) to maximize what can be learned from this course.
Proof of shooting experience can be one of the following:
Intro to Handguns,  NRA or other pistol course, previous permit holder with the right training, law enforcement or military ( DD 214 with pistol qualification) background.

Take the Quiz to see if you have the knowledge necessary to take a carry permit class or should you consider a beginner class first.
