Can anyone confirm that it is indeed legal to openly carry a handgun in Minnesota if you possess a carry permit. Thanks.

I open carry in MN sometimes, but I don't like the attention and questions it creates and prefer to carry concealed.

Yes its legal.
Here is the law (https://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/bin/getpub.php?pubtype=STAT_CHAP&year=2006&section=624#stat.624.714.0)

While legal anywhere concealed carry is legal, open carry lacks the public acceptance it may have in some other states and is likely to draw attention from law enforcement in most contexts.

Perfectly legal, and officially acknowledged by the BCA website.

Don't tell that to the cops that will hassle you though.

yes, you can totally legally open carry if you possess the personal protection permit.

However, there are some places where the police have bluntly stated 'if we see you open carry, we will throw you in jail for distrubing the peace'

Supposedly one of those places is the State Fair. I've heard that pretty much any part of St Paul is that way as well.
