Product Description:

Eliminate in-classroom time with our new:
Minnesota Carry & Renewal Hybrid Firearm course!
Price: $85
SAVE $20 if this is a MN Permit Renewal or a returning student of ours
(Must provide proof of valid and current MN Carry Permit on Range Day)

 

We realize time is at a premium today and that's why we've adapted our Minnesota permit training and put the classroom portion online for your convenience. We have served thousands of permit holders with our online course since it was introducted on July 4th 2009.

This is our latest version of the  online / Hybrid Carry Course which requires approximately 2.5 to 3 hours of self study, take and pass 3 short online quizzes on the content presented in the course and an in-person Range Qualification Exercise. It has been UPDATED FOR ALL NEW LAWS PASSED by the Minnesota Legislature in  2015.

You'll have short quizzes you must complete at the end of each of the modules and 90 days to complete the course. The range session consists of 10 to 20 rounds (your gun and your ammo) fired from approximately 21 feet at a  target area approx. 8.5" x 11". You must handle the firearm safely and hit 7 out of 10 consecutive shots in the center of mass (the 8.5" x 11" area).

We usually hold our range qualifications on most Tuesday mornings in Prior Lake, or  you can choose a classroom course shooting time and shoot with the class (Prior Lake Only). We will try to accomodate other dates if you find our schedule to be inconvenient.

This course is good for both: Your Minnesota permit and your Minnesota permit renewal.  Once you order this product, we will contact via e-mail and phone (if necessary) with detailed instructions for taking the course. We offer a steep discount for renewals!

This course is taught by a certified instructor (Gary Shade) from a BCA approved organization. The same BCA approved courseware we deliver in our brick and mortar courses is now available online for your convenience!

Out of state applicants can now take this portion of the course online before coming to Minnesota to complete the range exercise and to apply for your permits.

Requirements:
Your must have an account on our server to take this course online. If you don't already have an account, please create one under account options before you purchase this product. You also must have a fast Internet connection (DSL or better).

This was an easy, painless renewal of your permit to carry license for MN. I took my original class with Shade and renewed through the online site and both were great. This online coarse is a great refresher of state laws and once done you meet up with him at the range and fire a few round off to prove you are proficient with your firearm, easy. I recommend this course to everyone I now that needs there permit.

Tom Shea (MN) - January 8th 2016
I took the course almost 5 years ago and I was pleased. The class was clear and concise as well as convenient. The follow up at the range was quick and easy. I took the written at the range just prior to the shooting portion of the test.
I was happy enough with the first time that I am now renewing with Gary.

Michael Reamy (TX) - October 18th 2015
Due to recent changes between TX and MN, my TX license was is longer valid in MN but my travel to MN remains. I contacted Gary and he suggested this course which I knocked out in a couple of hours in my hotel room and then attended one of his range sessions the following day. From there, I went to the nearest Sheriff's office to submit my application.

Thanks to Gary's suggestions and products, I completed everything over a 24 hour period without disrupting my existing plans!

My schedule left me in a predicament. I could not attend classes in the evening, nor on the weekends. That ruled out pretty much every course except this one. It didn't disappoint.

Gary made the material easy to understand. Unlike a regular class, you can go back and review as much as you want to. Gary stays current. I took the course in late September 2015, and he included references to laws that went into effect in August of the same year.

Bill Griffith (St. Paul) - November 29th 2014
Just completed the online hybrid renewal course. With a busy work schedule, kids, and life, this course is for you. The video's that Gary makes are clear and to the point, not a bunch of filler. Gary was very accommodating for the qualification portion, which made the whole process extremely convenient. I will also add, that the H&H club is a top notch facility, stay for lunch, eat a elk or prime rib sandwich. My wife and I will would highly recommend this course.
OUTSTANDING!!
