Never Shoot into the Ground

It’s interesting to see how many people think that shooting into the ground is safe.  But it isn’t.  Bullets can go deep into the soil.  Since rocks and other hard objects can exist beneath the surface of the soil, you can potentially hit such an object and find your bullet ricocheting off to hit an unintended target.

Not only do the guys  in this video not understand the potential danger of shooting into the soil, but they also failed to instruct this girl on muzzle control and not pointing the firearm at anything she doesn’t intend to shoot.

In our Minnesota Permit to Carry and other firearm courses, we focus on firearm safety, ensuring that you know how to always handle a firearm safely.

Man Nearly Kills Himself

Never, never, never, never, never look down the barrel of a firearm that is loaded or experiencing a hang-fire or for any other reason.  Just don’t do it.  This is one of the most unsafe and unwise things you can do.

In our Minnesota Permit to Carry and other firearm courses, we emphasize the safe handling of firearms so that you always know how to handle a firearm safely.

Minnesota Permit to Carry Private Classes

Here at Maple Grove Firearms, we’re busy conducting several private classes for the Minnesota Permit to Carry license. We have a reasonable price of $500 for us to train up to 15 people in a group. These private classes are not advertised on our website, so sometimes, we end up having a thin public class schedule because we’re busy doing private classes. At 15 people, each person’s cost is $33 – a serious bargain if you can pull together the folks for the class.

In just April and May of 2014, we will have conducted 3 private events – one for a group of 15 people, one for a group of 6 and another for a group of 12.

Our fee of $500 doesn’t include any extras, such as pizza, range time, eyes, ears, ammunition or books. All of those elements will cost extra – we can discuss this with you when you contact us to schedule a private event. We’ll come to your house or place of business or community site to do the course instruction and then we’ll use a range here in Maple Grove, Rogers or Osseo for the shooting portion of the class. We’ll even split up the event into two evenings if that is better for you.
