Gun Permit Center was born out of a passion for self defense for persons around the country and a desire to offer our courses in an electronic format to reach a larger audience with this potentially life-saving information. We strive to bring you the latest in news, stories, and examples about handguns and the laws that surround us.
Located in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, Gun Permit Center provides premier trainings for permit to carry classes, NRA courses, and personal instruction using web based formats and traditional face to face trainings.
Our lead instructor has been certified with well known national trainers such as John Farnham’s Defensive Training International, and The Massad Ayoob Group.
Our lead instructor James has over 30 years of defensive training from around the country, including nationally known trainers like John Farnham and Massad Ayoob. Since 2003, he has taught over 1,000 Minnesota students and that number continues to grow every day.
Two of our owners have been held at gunpoint and lived to tell about it. This terrible experience gave rise to the need to understand and excel in self-protection and gun use.
Our mission is to provide education about self defense in a professional setting, at a reasonable price. We believe everyone should have access to this vital information.
Gun Permit Center’s vision is to provide the best training in self defense using a handgun as according to Minnesota law. We believe in hands on training as well as a classroom format. That is why we developed our practical application section of the course. We believe that anyone who (legally) carries a handgun must be responsible for themselves, their community, and their families.
