10 Things Gun Owners Do Wrong, But Can Fix Easily  


But Why Select Us for Your Training?


My training partner Jon Thompson and  I are both National Rifle Association (NRA) and United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) Certified Instructors in good standing. In December of 2015 I attended intensive training sessions and was made a Training Counselor for the United States Concealed Carry Association.  I am a trainer and mentor\coach for qualifying their certified instructors. Over 150 experienced instructors applied and I am one of the 60 who were accepted and quaified as instructors.


We have spent years developing our knowledge of firearms and training skills, so we can train you safely and effectively. Our training is recognized in many states and our certification can allow you to obtain carry permits in over 40 states today


We are also both graduates of Massad Ayoob's intensive 40 hour class MAG 40 Range and Armed Citizen's Rules of Engagement class.  In fact, I have passed this class more than once. I am also a Massad Ayoob Group Certified Instructor having completed their grueling 3 day 2,000 round Instructor Training Class.   We therefore have both been expertly trained in this vital and complex body of knowledge. Both Jon and I have qualified as instructors for John Farnam's tactical training company, Defensive Training International.

My training partners and all of the instructors my training company certifies to the MN BCA to teach Permit to Carry in MN are active in IDPA.  We shoot frequently and have extensive training in competitive and tactical shooting.


Jon Thompson and I concentrate on the basic pistol and Permit to Carry Classes and both hold the Advanced Defensive Pistol Certification  (something less than 1% of their certified instructors hold this designation) and Chief Range Safety Officers certifcation from the NRA.  Guest instructors and I focus on more Advanced classes like MAG 20, Competition and Defensive shooting classes.  


We will all work with you to assure you have the proper knowledge, skills and attitude to safely use a firearm for the purpose you intend.  I also host other national and local experts in competitive shooting and in basic and Advanced pistol and AR -15. These outside experts generally have a background in competitive shooting, law enforcement and/or the military depending on the class being taught.  


Bob Jahn and Jon Thompson are pleased to continue at Monticello Rod and Gun Club as their official NRA range trainers and as board members of Monticello Sportsmen Club.


As Certified Instructors and a Training Counselors, we offer a full range of courses for all skill levels. We also offer a beginning and advanced classes and can do most private classes during the week or weekends to fit your schedule. 


We strongly believe in continuous training and practice. We shoot many guns and fire thousands of rounds per year. Jon and Bob are both NRA Chief Range Safety Officers, and are NRA certified in Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun! We are all students of internationally known instructors and authors Jon Farnam, Massad Ayoob and other respected trainers and LEO's. Bob is also a graduate of Front Sight's 4 day Handgun class.  We promise caring expert real world professional training from educated, articulate instructors who care that you understand the material.


Our students consistently rate us as exceeding their expectations. We team teach and have experience training hundreds of shooters. Students have ranged from brand new shooters to police and Force Recon Marines. While you must be 20 to take the Permit to Carry Class, we routinely train folks between 20 and 85 and specialize in folks with physical challenges.


References are available, and we support our students during and after the class.


Jon is a college trained gunsmith and a stocking FFL firearms dealer. Discounts on transfers, etc. are offered to our students and graduates. See his website atRiverside Sporting Gear for details.
