How do I get a permit to purchase a handgun?
The law regarding obtaining a permit to purchase a handgun has not changed. To obtain a permit to purchase a handgun you may apply in person at the Sheriff's Office Monday - Friday between 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. You must be 21 years of age, a resident of Wright County and have a Minnesota drivers license / MN State ID Card confirming your Wright County address. We cannot accept applications sent by fax. A photocopy of your drivers license / ID is required. The permit will be processed within 7 - 10 working days from the time you make application. The criminal history of each applicant is checked. A record of conviction for certain crimes will be cause for denial of a permit. To begin, please download the Purchase / Transfer Application.
