We offer classes for the Iowa, Minnesota and Arizona permit to carry. All lecture courses will be held in my home office or I can come to you if you have a group of friends/family members. However, all shooting courses will be held at the Olofson Shooting Range & Training Facility in Polk City. This is the ideal way to become comfortable and competent with a firearm.
Don't have a gun? No problem! I have a plethora of firearms to try out before you buy them.
Due to nationwide ammunition shortages costs have gone up tremendously. You are welcome to bring ammunition or pay an additional $10 fee. Also, if you bring your own firearm to class, you will need to bring ammunition for it as well.
We apologize for this unfortunate inconvenience.
Do you prefer a more direct approach to learning? This course is tailored to people who want to learn to defend themselves properly with a firearm. This course will qualify you for the Iowa, Minnesota and Arizona permit to carry.Learn more

This course is a lecture on state and federal law and will qualify you for your Iowa and Arizona permit to carry. We no longer teach the Utah class due to the associated cost to my students and the lack of permit to carry coverage you will get from obtaining it.Learn more
" I thought I had everything figured out with firearms until I took a course offered by Fox Shooting Sports. It helps that the guys who teach it have actually been in combat and can tell us, the students, what to expect. Thank you for your service gentlemen. "
" I recently had an incident that made my wife and I think about our level of protection in the home. I looked at a few different websites, called a few people and tried to get some information. Considering that we already had a permit to carry, I wanted our training to be personalized. I was referred to Fox Shooting Sports by a friend and not only did he respond to my email in 5 minutes, he gave us a discount because of how many people were in my group. Thanks for the training Zac as well as your patience with my family. "
" Zac is truly the ideal instructor. From in-depth knowledge coming from years of field experience, he applies excellent observational skills and a warm personality to adapt to you as a student. Zac does not teach down to his students, he builds up with them. My wife and I have both taken Zac’s courses and I immediately recognized how he adjusts every moment to your unique views, abilities and styles. He is not one-size-fits-all. He is custom tailored to you. Every course from Zac has resulted in valuable training, improved skill and an anxiousness for the next one. I absolutely recommend him to anyone, beginner or expert. "
" Zac, thank you so much for all the information you shared at the class yesterday. I learned a lot of new things. I also appreciated your patience in showing me how to properly hold and shoot my gun. I now feel a lot safer knowing that I will be able to protect myself if I need to. "
" Zac at Fox Shooting Sports provides a comfortable yet forthright learning experience to people from any walk of life. With a strong focus on the legal, practical, and emotional aspects of firearm carry and use, Zac's class is an excellent choice for those who are interested in taking personal responsibility for their own safety yet are concerned about the stereotypical gun culture.
