Minnesota Carry & Renewal Hybrid Firearm course!

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.

Cindy B. (Ogilvie, MN) - August 24th 2010
It was time for me to renew my permit and I really didn't look forward to spending time in-class. So I was happy to find the on-line option offered by Shades Landing.
I found the class convenient and yet very thorough. Gary does a great job of providing you with all the details of statutes and regulations. The classes were easy to open and the quizzes covered the material well. The quiz that you have to take with Gary also re-caps all the information, re-enforcing what you've already [...read more]

Trying to fit a whole day into a busy schedule is nearly impossible these days.

Gary really put together a top notch program which we can complete at home, work or other free time without spending an entire day.

After completing the online portion, Gary worked with my schedule to complete the shooting and testing portion. Not only was he personable and helpful, but offered some good tips and guidance.

Within a few hours of total time, I had the cert [...read more]

William Hinds (MN) - March 25th 2010
I am a very busy person so doing the online course gave me the freedom to break it up during the evening and it only took me a little over an hour total. And the experience meeting Gary and shooting with him was the very rewarding. I qualified on the first clip but he took the time and gave me some pointers and lessons to work on to improve my accuracy and I shot 3 more clips with him. We probably could have been done with the quailifing and testing in half hour but I had some questions and Gary [...read more]

Rlatimore (Minneapolis, MN) - February 18th 2010
Great course, the online information was very informative and entertaining. The course was also well programmed and easy to use from a technical/computer perspective.

I took notes during the online portion and used them for the quizzes after each hour segment and the quick in class quiz.

As an attorney I thought the advice that Gary gave should you need to discharge your weapon was spot on.

Meeting Gary was a pleasure and he seems like a very nice pe [...read more]

I completed the course while watching a Vikings football game at home one Sunday. Took just over an hour. It would have taken less time, but Gary makes some great points during his presentation that I wanted to hear a few times over.

If you are crunched for time, this course is fantastic. It's fast, easy and very, very informative. I thought it would be boring and lack useful informational content....not hardly. Gary has put together a first-class course and you would be well serv [...read more]

Jv - Lakeville (MN) - November 14th 2009
The online course was fantastic. It allowed me to study/learn at my own pace, on my own time, and yet still provided the same in-person quality one would expect from a traditional class. Gary is a great teacher and verbally walks you through all of the statutes, regulations, and important items that you need to know to carry a handgun. The three lessons were all very relevant, even providing useful legal information and referrals. I would highly recommend this class to anyone wishing to exer [...read more]

Tom (MN) - September 2nd 2009
I took the online course because it was a better fit for my schedule.

The course is well designed, contains a great deal of information, and Gary presented it professionally.

During the shooting qualification, Gary gave me some tips that improved my accuracy immediately.

I've already recommended the course to friends.

Jeff Nelson (Farmington) - August 19th 2009
I had the pleasure of taking the online permit to carry course, and I was impressed with the whole process. From sign up to completion Gary has been more than helpful in answering my questions and working to meet my schedule. He even offered to answer any future questions I should have, and I have no doubt he will. I decided to take the online class because I was having a hard time finding making one of the classroom sessions work with my schedule.

The actual online portion o [...read more]
