    Just wanted to drop a quick line to say “Thanks and Great Job”. I attended the Minnesota Permit to Carry class on April 25th. I found the class extremely informative and well planned out. The staff did a excellent job and I would highly recommend River Valley Arms and Ammo to others thinking about taking the class.
