We realize that you may not be able to attend a traditional MN Permit to Carry class (or "conceal and carry"), or may have the desire to take the course in a more private setting. Blue Line Defense now offers MN Permit to Carry classes for families and small groups at a fixed low rate. This course was designed to meet and exceed the Minnesota Personal Protection Act requirements set forth by the BCA. Additionally, this course will give you the credentials to apply for a Wisconsin, Florida and Minnesota Permit to Carry. Topics include: Safe firearm handling and storage, shooting fundamentals, critical incidents, legal issues for Minnesota Permit to Carry holders, Minnesota conceal and carry laws, Firearm selection, and more! We will provide all course materials, targets, eye protection, and ear protection. You should provide your own firearm and ammunition. If you do not have a firearm, we can provide them for use for an additional cost.
A great class to take after taking one of our Permit to Carry classes, this course introduces the fundamental skillset necessary for the use of a handgun in self-defense situations. Learning how to utilize a handgun as a true defensive weapon increases the student's chance of survival and success in a life or death situation. You will learn the fundamentals on the range using both dry-fire and live-fire drills. We break the fundamentals down one by one to help you smoothly and easily build your confidence and skills. After you master the fundamentals, you will work on a wide variety of real world scenario based firearms training drills. These include different types of reloads, malfunctions, multiple targets, defensive shooting, and incorporating movement while shooting. This class runs approximately 6 hours, most of which will be spent on the range
Building on skills taught in a conceal and carry class, or Defensive Handgun 1, this course introduces the student to dynamic encounters and practical defensive skills. Drills include shooting from various positions, including kneeling, supine and prone. Additional training will include one handed malfunction clearance and reloads, weapon retention, defense in close quarters, and more. The student will shoot from various distances and cover. Several of the drills are timed, which will help the student determine the important balance between speed and accuracy. The class ends with a drill that will incorporate everything the student has learned in Defensive Handgun 1 and Defensive Handgun 2. This class runs approximately 6-8 hours, all of which will be spent on the firing range.
