    As a kid I witnessed a grain elevator explosion. For the non-rural types grain elevators are large storage silo's. Grains of wheat are barely flammable. Wheat dust on the other hand is highly flammable/explosive. While I am not interested enough...

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.
