What happens on the day of class?
I will call the night before to firm up plans for the day.
What to bring: Bring the handgun you are going to carry (no single action cowboy style gun - we also rent handguns for $10.00 if you do not have a handgun to use), fifty rounds of factory ammo, driver's license and your fee for the class by cash or check. Leave your handgun secured in your car until we go to the range.
We will meet in the classroom at 9:30 am to register for class.
Class starts at 10:00 am.
We will take a one hour lunch break.
At about 4:30 pm, we go to the range. We should wrap it up no later than 6:00 pm.
Minnesota Permit to Carry/Renewal - Expect to spend at least four hours in the classroom for the Minnesota Permit to Carry. You will receive a student packet to follow along with the presentation. We encourage you to ask questions and provide input into the class experience.
After the classroom session, the law requires that all permit candidates must pass a shooting proficiency test. You will be evaluated on proficiency and safe handling of the handgun.
Utah Permit to Carry - If you have taken your Minnesota Permit to Carry with Rusty, you are eligible for a reduced fee. You will receive handouts on the Utah Permit to Carry, Minnesota Permit to Carry and North Dakota Permit to Carry Laws, a resource disk with additional information, and other supporting documents. This four hour+ class will have additional information on the Minnesota Permit to Carry and the North Dakota Permit to Carry. You will have hands-on weapons familiarization in the class room with Rusty's handguns and training ammunition. We will roll your fingerprints, take your passport photo and make a copy of your drivers license in the classroom to assist you in completing the application process.
