Been a very busy summer but not it the way one would think. Classes have been average but sales have been slow throughout the industry. The most common reason offered seems to be that, at this time last year most people assumed Hillary would be our new Commander in Chief. As a result people tended to "stock up" thinking "I better do it now in case it is not an option under a new President!"
SO, it order to spur a few extra sales, we are having a store-wide sale. The discounts will vary individually on what item you are interested in. As an example, we have the Ruger LCP's as low as $199.99. We also have a few used guns including the popular Smith & Wesson model 64 revolver starting at $399.99. These guns are georgeous!
We also have a good supply of 22lr ammo. Any 40SW ammo is being sold at our cost!
Please stop in get the best selection before the fall hunting season gets going. Sales may be limited to existing inventory.
SEE YOU SOON!
What's new as of 1-5-2017
Carry Permit classes are booking quickly and we have increased the number of classes we give at the Osakis General Store to TWO a month during the busy season.
Keep in mind that we only require a minimum of 4 people to schedule a class at our Brandon location! If you don't have your own group of at least 4, we can add you to an existing class.
We do week day, evening and weekend day classes.
NEW GUNS! With the new Ruger LCPII available, the original LCP at $229.99 is a fantastic deal!
Gun and ammo sales are both up! The hottest items have been the Sararms 9mm (clone of the CZ 75) at $299.99. Also the new Smith & Wesson Victory 22 is HOT. We have sold 10 in the last month and now Smith is having trouble keeping up with demand - $379. Combine this firearm with an inexpensive red dot and you have a great gun for the winter 22 leagues! The Victory comes with a scope rail. We have a demo gun so give it a try.
TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS
Due to other obligations, our hours spent in the shop may vary considerably. I believe that we will average at least 40 hours a week in the shop BUT we will, on occasion, be away from the shop for as much as a week or more. As such, please take notice of the following suggestions:
1. Please call 320 524-2341 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before coming out, to see if we are going to be in the shop.
2. If you are having a firearm being transferred into us, again verify with us that we are going to be here to accept the firearm. Generally speaking, the delivery services (UPS, FEDEX, USPS) will attempt delivery on 3 consecutive business days. If they cannot deliver within that three day window, the will send the firearm back to the shipper. Pioneer Industries WILL NOT be responsible for any re-shipping costs.
WE HAVE AMMO!!
Ammunition inventory continues to improve and we now have a larger quantity of 22lr !-
We also have 380, 9mm, 40sw, and 45acp ammo !
Due to increased training obligations (carry permit, beginning handgun, advanced handgun, etc), the Carry Depot Store will only be open Wednesday thru Saturday, 9AM-5PM. We still might be available on the other days by appointment or by chance so always best to give us a call.
As many of you are already aware, we also offer Carry Permit training at the Osakis General Store. Please contact the General Store (320 859-5159) for dates, fees, etc.
Carry classes and Beginning Handgun classes are still booking
fast. The large increase in women getting training is amazing!
Remember, we only need 4 people to schedule a carry class (if
you have four, all new permittees get a $10 discount ($70
instead of $80) - all renewals are only $70)!
If you don't have your own group, call or email and we will put
you on a notification list of classes coming up.
Classroom and Store
Since 2003, Pioneer Industries has been providing handgun training to the public. Our training is offered for recreational purposes as well as for self-defense reasons. In addition to providing the mandatory training in order to apply for a Minnesota Carry Permit, we can also provide the training/certification/documents in order to apply for a Florida carry permit. The adding of just one non-resident permit can give one the right to carry in many additional states.
In addition to our firearms training, we offer our popular non-firearm self-defense training for women. Please check the information for this class in the "Classes" section of this site.
In offering our training programs, it has become common for our students to ask us to provide suggestions as to what equipment and accessories to use. Since many of these suggestions involve firearms and where to acquire them, we decided to acquire our Federal Firearms License (FFL) in 2005. After acquiring our FFL, we established "The Carry Depot" store from which we sell firearms and accessory items. These accessory items include holsters, handgun safes, sights, ammunition, storage cases, cleaning supplies and miscellaneous items. In order to provide you with the best possible pricing, WE DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS. Thanks for your understanding.
In our efforts to make Pioneer Industries, The Carry Depot store and this site a success, we encourage all viewers to make constructive suggestions as to how we can better serve you. Thanks!
