Hand guns

I know that a person must be 21 to buy a hand gun but how old do you have to be to be in possession of one. Is it one of those things like before a person is 18 he or she can not buy ammo but can be in possession of it?

You should move this to the archery and shooting sport, 18 to hunt and target shoot 21 to transport and purchase not a 100% on this it tells you in the game laws and my copy is missing.

Under the direct supervision of a parent or gardian for target shooting or marksmanship, it is unclear about hunting but it states for all under the direct supervision of parent or gardian so if your under 21 you have to be with and under direct supervison, very clear what they mean.

18 for rifle 21 for handgun so if you go to buy .22 or .44 tell them it's for a rifle grin

Essentially, yes, a person 18 and older is able to be in possession and transport (unloaded and cased) a handgun.

The above-mentioned Statute does not tell the whole story.

Look at this as well...

https://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/statutes/?id=624.714

The statute I mentioned addressed "possessing".

The statute FishNovice101 cited addressed "carrying".

The definitions (lawyer speak) have to be considered. It is ok for an 18 year-old to possess a handgun (to transport unloaded and cased, to have a handgun to target shoot or hunt with, etc.)

A person must be 21 to obtain a permit to carry. Carry is defined and there is further discussion on what it means to "carry". There is also mention of carrying in a "public place" and consideration has to be given to how "public place" is defined in the statutes.

So if a guy were to buy his 20 year old kid a hand gun for hunting would he able to have it in truck and target shoot outside of season with it??

Yes, the 20-year old could transport it unloaded and cased in his truck. He could also target shoot with it.

The 20-year old would not be able to obtain a (concealed)carry permit.

Here is some of the statute, 624.714, that covers it (Parts 4 & 5 address the question you asked) :

Subd. 9.Carrying pistols about one's premises or for purposes of repair, target practice. A permit to carry is not required of a person:

(1) to keep or carry about the person's place of business, dwelling house, premises or on land possessed by the person a pistol;

(2) to carry a pistol from a place of purchase to the person's dwelling house or place of business, or from the person's dwelling house or place of business to or from a place where repairing is done, to have the pistol repaired;

(3) to carry a pistol between the person's dwelling house and place of business;

(4) to carry a pistol in the woods or fields or upon the waters of this state for the purpose of hunting or of target shooting in a safe area; or

(5) to transport a pistol in a motor vehicle, snowmobile or boat if the pistol is unloaded, contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, or securely tied package

      Might not have to wear ear plugs when I mow!      That’s a spendy one.  It wasn’t hard to find one of those for $6k.  Comparatively and Ariens of the same size is $4,200.  A home owner grade JD for $3,900.  You could get into a commercial grade Z700 for maybe $8k.   I think the work I did today with mine would’ve killed that one there.

      On the south end...   This year's MN Fishing Opener weekend was not only great weather wise, the walleyes and saugers were caught in good numbers.  A main fish gut hauler working with a number of resorts commented it was one of the most productive opening weekends he has seen based on the amount of fish guts collected after the weekend. The goto presentation was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   Four Mile Bay held good walleyes in 12 - 18'.  Not a surprise as the walleye bite on the river during the spring season was good and as of late, sturgeon anglers have been reporting catching walleyes on sturgeon rigs.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 12 - 15'.  Across the south shore, 18 - 22' was holding good numbers as well.  As you can see, there are lots of fish around.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well.   As a reminder, the limit of walleyes and saugers is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One fish over 28.0 inches can be kept.  The possession limit in MN is one daily limit of fish. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers hit the lake.  10 - 15' of water was the norm.     Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River has been excellent.  The catch and release season continues through May 15th and then closes until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes were caught in 18 - 25 feet of water, a little deeper than anticipated.  Points were good as were areas with structure.  The morning and evening bite was best.       As water continues to warm, go to spots for walleyes will be neck down areas, shoreline breaks, points and bays.     The goto presentation was a jig and minnow.
