About Us

About Shade's Landing Inc.

Shade's Landing Inc. is a family run corporation specializing in personal protection and concealed carry firearms training. The company is CO-owned by Gary and Susan Shade.

Shade's Landing Inc. began in 1984, and in 1988 we changed the company's name to Shade's Landing on moving to Minnesota (land of 10,000 lakes, 20 million mosquitoes, and just as many taxes.)

The company was incorporated in November of 1995. From 1995 - 2003, our primary focus was on creating, hosting and marketing award winning web sites for some of the biggest names (individuals) in real estate.

In 2003, the company recognized a need for firearm and personal protection training that was not being addressed and they became the first Minnesota firearms training company to offer a "Multi-State" carry course in the Midwest (September 2003). In July of 2009 we became the first Minnesota company to offer the Minnesota permit lecture portion of the course online.

Today we offer a full range of firearm safety and personal protection classes and have trained over 11,000 people in the art of firearms handling, safety, and personal protection.

We believe that: "The World Is Run By Those Who Show Up" and that's what drives our business and the business of our clients.

Our company's goal is to be the best - not the largest. We believe in personalized service that comes with a solid commitment to online security and quality in all of the products and services that we offer.
