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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
