How do I obtain a gun permit?
The Todd County Sheriff’s Office handles all gun "Carry" applications for Todd County. Permit to purchase applications are turned into your local police department. Applications for both Carry and Purchase permits are available at the Todd County Sheriff’s Office and may be obtained Monday - Friday between 8AM and 4:30 PM. If you have a permit to carry, you do not need a purchase permit.
There is no fee for a purchase permit, and your permit will be acted on within seven days of returning a completed application. Purchase permits are good for one year from the date of issuance.
Carry permits: The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension addresses many frequently asked questions concerning carry permits. Please visit their web-site at: https://dps.mn.gov/divisions/bca/bca-divisions/administrative/Pages/Permit-to-Carry-FAQ.aspx
The Todd County Sheriff’s Office charges $75 for processing a carry permit, and has 30 days to either issue or deny the permit, though generally speaking, it does not require this long. A carry permit is good for five years from the date of issuance. Whether your permit is a renewal or a first time issue, you must take a BCA approved class within one year of the date of application and provide a copy to our office. Your address and driver license numbers do not need to match your card, however; you must notify our office within thirty days of a permanent address change. A list of approved trainers and courses can also be found on the BCA web-site at:
