Skog,
Do you get on ShotgunWorld? If so there is a link to a site that has the different states listed.There may be something in there to help you. State laws are different than local laws. I'd call the Office of your local District Attorney. They shold be able to provide this info also. Be sure to check Campus rules ,if you live on campus.

As I understand it, the handgun has to be in your name if you are going to transport/ hang on to it. Your local Sheriff can transfer it from your dad's name to yours, often costing little or nothing.

Believe your sherriff at home. There is no need to include an FFL holder.

The steps would be to:
1. Take the pistol (unloaded and cased of course) to the local police/sherriff station.
2. Get a purchase permit. This includes taking the test. The police will do the background check right there.
3. You fill out one (purchaser) part of the permit, your father fills out the other (seller) part. (all in triplicate)
4. You turn in the required number of copies (Your father should keep a copy)
5. The police will inspect the gun to make sure it's the one on the permit.
6. The police will register the gun in your name and give you the green registration card.

Since you will do the transfer right there at the station, they can answer any questions.

The procedure will effectively transfer ownership from your father to you. You are now responsible for that firearm.

See MSP webpage.

Been there. I love it up there. I'd move back up there, if only there was a way to support the family. :wink:

pretty much. I know a guy at the local grocery store that has bagged for 11 years and now makes 7.50/hour but stays because it has health benefits for his family.
