Minnesota Drops Nevada and Adds West Virginia Reciprocity

Minnesota law essentially dictates that Minnesota will honor permits from states that have similar permit-to-carry law. There are a few key components to that that include:

  • Minimum age of 21 to obtain a permit
  • Training with live fire required to apply

Based on those two criteria Minnesota has made two changes to their reciprocity.

Minnesota No Longer Honors The Nevada Permit

Nevada has been withdrawn as a “similar” state because age 21 is no longer the minimum age for all permit applicants.

Minnesota Now Honors The West Virginia Permit

Minnesota has taken notice that WV requires training with live-fire and they have a minimum age of 21. Thus the WV permit is now valid in Minnesota!

    ” Thus the WV permit is not valid in Minnesota!”… Did you mean to say, “is NOW valid”?

      Thanks for catching that, sometimes I wonder why they pay me to be editor. lol. I am human, after all. I updated it.

    Thank you! Why don’t people learn to spell or at least use a spell checker. This mistake was a big one in that it left the reader confused. Is it Yes or is it No???

      Technically speaking, the word “not” is not misspelled. It was the wrong word, but a spell checker would not have picked it up. We have a spell checker built in, as most devices do these days. Not making an excuse for poor editing on my part. That’s all me. I have updated it to reflect the proper wording.
