Minnesota law requires a resident to have a Permit to Purchase/Transfer in order to obtain a handgun through a purchase, sale, gift, loan, assignment or other delivery from another person. If a resident has a valid permit to carry a handgun, that permit constitutes a permit to purchase. Application for this permit is made with your local city police department.
