Permit to Carry

The Isanti County Sheriff's Office issues handgun "permits to carry" for residents of Isanti County. All Isanti County residents who want to apply for a permit to carry a handgun must do so in person through the Isanti County Sheriff's Office.
Applicants must:
  • Apply in person
  • Be at least 21 years old and a citizen or permanent resident of the United States
  • Provide photo ID (driver's license, state photo identification card or valid passport with photo)
  • Provide proof of firearms training by a certified instructor per MN statute 624.714, sub. 2a.
  • Submit a completed state application with the required documents, and cash or check for $100.00.
We will conduct a series of background-related checks to assure you meet the eligibility requirements established by state law. Once those checks are successfully completed, a permit will be issued that is valid for five years and may be used to purchase a handgun statewide. In addition, applicants must not be prohibited by law from possessing a firearm. For additional information, click here to visit the BCA

Renewal of Permit to Carry

The Isanti County Sheriff's Office requires the following guidelines for the renewal of a Permit to Carry a Pistol in the State of Minnesota
(MN Statute 624.714):

  • Any 5 year permit expires at 12:00 A.M. midnight, on the date of expiration shown on the permit.
  • The applicant must appear in person and renew in the county in which they reside. Out of state residents can renew at any sheriff's office.
  • When renewing a permit, applicants must present evidence that they have received approved training in the safe use of a pistol within one year prior to the date of the renewal application.
  • A permit can be renewed up to 90 days prior to the expiration date of the current permit. The renewal gun permit fee will be $75.00.
  • After the expiration date, but within 30 days after the expiration, the permit can still be renewed by paying a fee of $85.00. During this time the old permit is not valid and you will not be able to carry until after you receive your renewal permit.
  • 31 days after expiration the old permit can no longer be renewed. An application will have to be submitted for a new gun permit. The gun permit fee will then be $100.00.
Applicants are reminded that the Sheriff's Office has 30 days to process and mail a permit or to deny the application.
