Permit to Purchase/ConcealCarry

7 posts in this topic

Permit to purchase and permit to carry are two different things. Also, in MN we have a permit to carry. Concealment is a choice.

For my permit to purchase, I think I went to the local sheriff but can't remember for sure.

For a permit to carry, you'll need to get enrolled in a local training program to get certified and then you can buy the permit to carry. I believe that's how it works.

Permit to purchase : if in metro , your local police chief

if rural your local Sheriff.

Permit to carry : Check local gun-shop for class info , take class and back to Law enforcement office to get permit

Cost for carry permit about $100 for class and about $100 for permit

Ok -- since Otsego doesn't have a police unit, I have to go to the Wright County sheriff in Buffalo? Or can I just go into Elk River (Sherburne County)? Can only the government office for the county/city I live in get me the permit to purchase?

Thanks in advance

Not positive , but I think you must go to your county Sheriff dept. A simple phone call to them will tell you what to do .

You deal with the law enforcement agency that covers your house. If Otsego contracts with the Sheriff you deal with them for both the purchase permit and the carry permit. I don't know which county Otsego is in but that's who you deal with.

If you live in Wright county, then you go to the Sherif there. They have the forms for you to fill out.

As is stated above, they are different. A puchase permit is free. You apply and wait 7-10 days to get your permit in the mail. A purchase permit is good for 1 year from the date it is issued.

With the carry permit, you take the class first. Then you go to the Sherif. And then the 7-10 days. Once you get your carry permit, it also acts as a purchase permit. Unlike a perchase, with a carry you have the permit for 5 years, therefor can buy for 5 years. They do run you between $100-$125, so with the cost of the class it is right around $200 just to get to the point of purchase.

The 7-10 days is just a guidline. If you clear the backround quickly, you may get it sooner. I used to get my purchase permit renuals in about 4-5 days. My carry permit was actualy mailed the day I applied.

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
