    Does the state of South Dakota have reciprocity with Minnesota? I am from MN and have a concealed Carry permit and want to carry in South Dakota. I know it had it under the old CCW law, but does it have now under the new law???

    Thanks,

    www.packing.org is your friend. They are very helpful for these sorts of questions. A MN license is recognized in SD, but they do not have reciprocity. Due to the very leftist politicians in MN state government they only have reciprocity with about 4 states because of strict rules.

    I believe SD recognizes a permit from any state. http://www.state.sd.us/sos/Firearms/index.htm

    " A MN license is recognized in SD, but they do not have reciprocity."

    - What does this mean, they recognize it, but no reciprocity???

    I know that packing.org says it's ok, but I don't think it's been updated since MN's first CCW.

    Q: What is the difference between states having Reciprocity and or just Honoring another states permit?

    A: Reciprocity means they have an agreement to honor each other's permits/license.

    Honoring means that one state decides to honor another's without an agreement. Michigan honors all other states permits but also signs reciprocity agreements with some states so their residents can legally carry in that state.

    Short answer: Yes. And now for the long answer:

    source

    You can follow this path to find the above:
    SD Firearm Laws --> Firearms Control --> Non Resident Permit to Carry a Concealed Pistol--Validity in South Dakota

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    No, you're right. South Dakota recogizes ALL state's permits. Just got the law changed this past summer.

    No, you don't. You have a "Permit to Carry a Pistol". I apologize for being a technical bastage but, really, that's what you have. Minnesota doesn't care *how* you carry, only that you have a permit to do so. Read the words on the permit.

    Florida, though, has a "Concealed" license for weapons. Other states probably have the same.

    Sorry grizz, but you are mistaken. MN grants it's citizens a permit to carry a pistol. It does not specify that you must carry concealed. I live in Minneapolis and carry openly often and have not had any LEO, of the 5 or so I have encountered, attempt to confiscate my gun. So please rest assured, open carry in MN is completely legal.

    usmarine, you may carry legally in SD on your MN permit to carry as long as you follow all of the applicable SD laws on carrying a gun. Open carry may not be allowed there; I do not know.
