Welcome to Plane Cents!
At Plane Cents, the health and safety of our students and community is our greatest concern. We are closely monitoring updates from Federal, State, and Local health agencies related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), and we will continue to adapt our conduct according to these recommendations. At present, our scheduled classes will continue to be held, with the understanding that the situation may rapidly change.
We have taken the following actions:
Class size is reduced to 10-12 persons
Adding some Thursday evening classes
Live Fire exercise completed in our private range
Range guns disinfected between each use, keeping person to person contact to a minimum
Implementation of additional cleaning and disinfection procedures
The truth is, getting a “Permit to Carry a Firearm” in Minnesota can be very expensive and for some folks it can be too expensive and they go unprotected.
The cost for that course is left up to the individual training organization, yet most of these organizations price their classes at $125, $150, or even $200. At Plane Cents LLC, we believe that it’s your right to obtain a permit to carry a firearm and that you shouldn’t be “priced out” of that right.
Unlike several other states that only require that citizens be “law abiding” in order to carry a firearm, Minnesota requires that potential applicants attend a “Minnesota Permit to Carry a Firearm” course conducted by an organization certified by the BCA. So what exacty do you get for your $55.00 from Plane Cents LLC? You’ll be taught the key things that will keep you out of trouble in Minnesota, including the three key things that the state requires us to teach including: Instruction in the fundamentals of pistol use; instruction in the legal aspects of firearm possession, carry, and use, including the rules governing the use of deadly force, and an actual shooting qualification. In addition to those topics, we’ll also provide you with the appropriate instruction and certificate that you’ll need if you’d like to apply for many permits which, when combined with your Minnesota permit, will allow you to carry in 31 states.
About Plane Cents Self Defense
At the Waconia location we shoot indoors, eliminating the extra driving time and expense to qualify at off-site ranges.
Plane Cents Self Defense is responsible for training thousands of students since the passage of the Minnesota Citizen’s Personal Protection Act in 2003. Our reasonable prices, instructor experience, and energetic classes lead to hundreds of student referrals year after year! Our Permit to Carry class is approximately 3 hours long, and combines a variety of training materials including a Power Point presentation and several pieces of gear related to firearms and the mechanics of carry. Our range qualification is low stress and is meant to demonstrate your safety and competence with a firearm and is not meant to establish a threshold not required by the law. I was privileged to have a sit in by the person who oversees the permit background checks for Carver County. I was told it was just a random check, but I was worried. Well I did very well and got their blessing. I have also had numerous Sheriff’s Deputies, county prosecutors, and many police officers from various departments sit in over the years. We always get a positive report. We just do a good job.
