Minnesota Gun Training By Andrew Rothman

Your Minnesota Permit to Carry Instructor

It's not really a "Concealed Carry Permit," a "Conceal and Carry permit," a "CCW," or a "CHL." It is, however, a good step to take to help keep yourself and your family safe.

Important Notice

I will be taking a leave from teaching classes until the end of May 2014, so that I can devote as much time as possible to fighting for our Second Amendment rights as president of the Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance, defenders of Minnesota gun rights for 25 years.

This year presents incredible challenges to our freedoms. I hope that you will join me in supporting GOCRA by signing up for important gun rights emails and becoming a member.

Classes will return after May 20. If you have an immediate need for a class, or want to be notified of upcoming class dates and locations, just contact me.

Thanks for understanding!


"The class was amazing, and I feel that it was a great learning experience that anybody can benefit from, whether they carry or not."- Matthew M.

Why do people call it "concealed carry"?

In many states, when you get a permit to carry, you have to carry concealed. In Minnesota, you can carry openly or concealed. Read more in the FAQ.
