Out of State Help

Hello,

I just moved to MN in the Weseca/Owatonna area from NH for work. My family and residence is still in NH. I plan on switching licenses when the family gets out here in June/ July.

So I am an out-of-stater, NH resident (Constitutional Carry state) , and fall under LEOSA law. Can I get a MN out of state permit to open carry? If issue with NH, can I buy a different state's permit that would let me get a MN permit (which state would be easiest)?

Thanks guys.

Mn is easy to get a permit take a class file application with local sheriff done. A MN. permit is a carry permit open or concealed your choice.

Do you have current HR218 credentials If so use them. Are you retired or Still a working LEO.


Mn recognizes very few permits if any now so getting another states permit is mostly out.

Can I get it while maintaining my NH drivers license?

I am a current LEO and can cc anywhere. But because of MN laws, I can't leave a gun in my truck, or buy a new gun. Plus the city I am in just had a cop shot in the head last night.

Buying a new firearm [handgun] is federal mandates which require a citizen [read non agency duty mandate] valid proof of state residence e.g. DL [LEOSA credentials won't suffice], completion of 4473, and NICS bkgnd check PLUS whatever MN unique statutes mandates for handguns [ https://www.atf.gov/file/117266/download ]

why not get a safe for the truck...?

ps...MN 168.012 New residents have a 60-day grace period in which to register their cars, passenger vans, 3/4 ton or less pickups, motorcycles, utility trailers or house trailers as long as the displayed license plates are current. https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/168.012

I'm not registering until July which is my birthday month and have to renew and get a new license. So come July I know I will be able to open carry with a MN permit. Its these next 7 months I'm interested in.
