Shakopee, MN




We are certified by the MN BCA for Handgun Carry Permit classes.  To be certified, we must be a NRA certified instructor.  We require our instructors to get as many certifications as possible.  I have the NRA certifications in Pistol instruction and Range Safety Officer .  i also am a certified pistol instructor through Alexandria Tech.

More certifications will be added in the coming months.  All this is to become a better instructor for you, the participant.
