How do I purchase a handgun?

8 posts in this topic

Looking at buying a .357 for hunting. What do I need to do to do that. Heard you have to get a permit to purchase. Where do I get that?

your local sheriffs department should have the paperwork. Thats where I got mine, they will be the ones that do the background check. You have to fill out a a sheet or two of paper and they send it back in. It took me awhile (2 weeks)to get mine back and it was in the spring. You might want to get on it.

In the metro, I went to my local Police Department, so call your local authorities first. It only takes 7 days to get the permit, they can mail it to you but that will take longer as well. once you have the permit, you are good to go. What model of handgun are you looking at?

I had to go to my county's Sherriffs department. It was signed by our county Sherriff. You might want to check on it before you show up.

If you live in the city limits you have to go to the local police dept. If you have a rural address or out of city limits you need to go to your county sheriffs dept.

Do yourself a favor and if you plan on pistol hunting get yourself a .44 mag. It has much better range and knock down power. There are also a much better selection of hunting style bullets in .44. Good luck.

My dad knocked one over a few years back with a .357 but it was a pretty close shot.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
