Firearms Safety Classes


Now’s the time to sign up for firearms safety classes.

If you want to try hunting or just want to feel comfortable around firearms, now is a great time of the year to think about signing up for a firearms safety course. Many classes already have been scheduled and more will be added to the calendar, and they tend to fill up quickly.

Firearms safety certification is required of anyone born after December 31st, 1979, who wants to purchase a hunting license in Minnesota, but safety officials recommend it for anyone who is around firearms. Details, exemptions and requirements are available on the DNR website.

Class start date is April 13th and ends on April 18th, with a start time of 6pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  It will be held at the Joint Operations facility in Thief River Falls.
