Sat., Dec. 5, 11 am.

New Life church, (1/2 mile west of of Streiff's) 54438 344th St., near Warroad.

Private classes are also available (contact us for private class offerings)   

Minnesota permits are now valid and North Dakota and North Dakota Class I (enhanced/shooting requirement) permits are valid in Minnesota for the first time in years! Minnesota did dump some states, though and vice versa. So, taking the MN and UT combined class still gets you states you can't carry in with a Minnesota permit alone, and qualifies you to apply for Florida's permit if that's important to you!

Sign up for the next class by going to the Classes page.
