**A Renewal Class is the same length and content as a regular Permit to Carry Class**
A Minnesota permit to carry may be granted to residents of Minnesota or any other U.S. state. This permit allows the individual to carry a pistol in 30 states. Learn the basics of proper handgun use, transporting your weapon, avoiding conflicts, and the use of lethal force, and much more.
A Minnesota Permit to Carry is recognized in the following states:
Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan (residents of MN only), Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Wisconsin.
Constitutional Carry States are: Alaska, Arizona, Idaho*, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota*, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming*
(*Idaho, North Dakota, and Wyoming for residents only)
According to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), there is no “renewal class” that can be substituted for a shorter class. The BCA training requirements are the same for renewals as they are for initial applicants. We include the Florida Conceal and Carry Weapons License Training as part of the traditional classroom course.
