Firearms Safety


2020 Firearm Safety Classes at DSC have been cancelled due to public health recommendations surrounding the Covid-19 crisis. The class will be re-offered  when the circumstances improve. Thank you for your understanding. Questions may be directed to Garret Sarkinen.

There is a Firearms Safety class held at the club every spring.  The Firearm Safety course is now required by the State of Minnesota.  The club has offered this course since 1955.  The course is based on gun safety and handling of a firearm, hunter responsibility, ethics and game identification, plus many other areas.  The club has a group of certified volunteer instructors, but we are always looking for interested volunteers to assist and offer new ideas.
