MN Permit to Carry Classes and DNR Firearms Safety Training.
We offer classes on the last Saturday of every month. We will also gladly schedule groups of six or more at other times.
Five Star Carry Academy is committed to providing the best small arms self-defense
carry instruction for both beginner and experienced shooters. Our training focuses
on small class sizes, hands-on experience
and thoughtful discussions of the practical,
ethical and moral decision making when
Classes typically require six hours of classroom instruction plus range time. A variety of topics, required by Minnesota Statute and our certification standards, are covered via lecture, video presentation, class discussion and hands on demonstrations. You are encouraged to
bring you personal carry firearm to class but
no ammunition is allowed in the classroom.
The range time has two objectives. First, it is
a way for class participants to demonstrate
safe handling of firearms. Second, we require 80% of shots taken be on target. Each shooting test requires 20 rounds be fired so 16 of the shots should be on target. There is no limit
on the number of attempts to reach the 80%
accuracy requirement. Special needs will be accommodated. If you do not currently own
a firearm one can be provided if you let us
know when you register.
Past participants have offered high praise for
the small class sizes and hands-on experiences
in the classroom and on the firing range. To a person our students have referred friends
and family members to our classes. Some
people consider taking our training in order
to familiarize themselves with firearm safety issues even though they have no intention
of applying for a Minnesota Carry Permit.
