Other Options

Private Classes

Many people have schedules that make it impossible to attend one of our regular dates and need a special class. While we need to charge more for private permit to carry classes, we are happy to accommodate your schedule — I even have done classes that start at 10 pm for realtors. We also offer private shooting discipline training for beginner through advanced, including basic gun handling, practical self-defense, point shooting, and advanced shooting techniques, which can include several simulator options.  Just call Joe at 612-327-3490 for more information.

Handgun Familiarization

This class is designed for those who want to understand the legal use of deadly force and get comfortable with their handgun, but do not want to carry at this time.  Course includes 1 hour of lecture on the use of deadly force and one hour of range time to familiarize you with your handgun.

This is a private course scheduled at your convenience.  Cost is $125.  To schedule a class, call me at (612) 327-3490 or email me at  If you don’t have your own handgun yet, we can talk about options.

Skill builder classes

No matter what your level of skill is, I will custom build a class for you getting you up to speed for your particular self-defense needs. Whether you’re new to handguns or have a job that requires you to take risks, we can teach you how to be prepared.

Large Groups

We will do group rates at your location. They will be priced based on ther number that will be attending. If say 30 are said to be committed to come and only 20 show up. We will still charge based on the 30 originally scheduled. This is only fair. We have done classes as far away as 150 miles so this is not a problem. Be aware of the fact we need a place to shoot.


This is a unique gift to your employees. We will come to your location or you can come to ours.


Yes I love to come to colleges and speak about self-defense and firearms carry permits. Just call me. Several colleges refer students to me regularly, some even have my flyers in the lunch rooms I am told.
