Permit to Purchase/Transfer

Under Minnesota law, firearm transfers involve any sale, gift, loan, assignment or other delivery to another person. If you possess a valid Minnesota permit to carry a handgun, that permit constitutes a permit to purchase. A person with valid permit to carry does not need to apply for a separate permit to purchase.

Permit Process

  • If you are applying for the permit to transfer, apply in the city you reside in. Completed applications must be returned in-person by applicant and it must be filled out completely. Applying in person can be done at the Wyoming Police Department, Monday through Friday from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.

  • The law enforcement agency has seven (7) days from the time it receives your application to notify you of its status. The law enforcement agency will conduct a series of background-related checks to assure you meet the eligibility requirements established in state law. Once those checks are complete, a permit will be issued that is valid for one year and may be used to purchase a firearm statewide.

  • Questions can be directed to the Wyoming Police Administrative Assistant at 651-462-0577.
