    Each state is different. In Oregon, there is no registration and I can carry any handgun I choose. (I believe the word is freedom. Or is it liberty. I get confused. Sorry) In New York and probably New Jersey, that rule does not apply.

    You need to check your state laws to find out. There are several websites out there that discuss just this type of thing.

    Same thing here in AZ, doesn't matter since you do not have to register your guns with big brother.

    Be safe!
    NEVER point a gun at something you are not prepared to destroy!
    AND for GODS sake, get your finger off the trigger until you are ready to squeeze the trigger!

    From what I read I believe any gun in your possession must be registered to you,so if you are carrying a gun then IMHO it has to be registered in your name

    No registration requirement here in North Carolina, carry whatever you want.

    Same here in SC.

    I had the notion that the paperwork we filled out at the time of purchase became the "registration".
    Friend who once was an FFL and dealer just recently set me straight. That paperwork stays with the
    dealer PERIOD. The Feds can get it but what a hassle that would be as paperwork is often "lost".
    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    Google is your friend.
    Minnesota has no registration requirements.

    Do not confuse the BAFTE 4473 that you fill out when purchasing with registration. Very few states require registration of guns. As long as your not in one of those states, your fine.

    As long as MN does not require registration (which I don't believe they do) then yes you can legally carry it. That being said, you might want to have the police do a serial number trace, to insure it is not stolen.

    While some states like Wisconsin do not register weapons they still run back round check.
    Now many will tell you that when you fill out the BAFTE 4473 no record of the serial number is kept that traces back you you.
    That is a lie. It was suppose to be a system where it was not kept but they they kept the records and to this day keep them.
    If you had a back round check done when you purchased it they know you had it and that record will never go away.

    Handgunlaw.us is a marvelous site (http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/minnesota.pdf) for starters. It's on YOU to know the laws in your state, of course.

    Presumably you have a permit: if you do, you're good to go.

    Welcome to the forum!
