Actually I was asking about the CPL, sorry for the confusion. Up here it used to be that if you qualified with a 45acp, that's all you could carry. Then it went to the caliber you qualified with and anything smaller. Then the state got smart and went no permit needed.

Oh I like busting his balls but I gotta be nice....somewhat. I need him to give me pointers to hunting MI. It's a lot different than AK.

He's a good guy and for a brother-in-law, I can't ask for anybody better.

Michigan is a fairly gun-friendly state. CPL is available after 6 months of residency by taking an 8-hour training course and submitting a simple application. Process takes 4-8 weeks, depending on when the county gun board meetings are scheduled. No specific gun is listed on the CPL. You can take the course with a .22 and carry a .45 if you want.

Rifles and shotguns must be unloaded in vehicles and either cased or inaccessable to the occupants. Hunting license is required to carry long gun afield unless on own property or at a recognized target range.

There are no magazine capacity limits or "assault weapon" bans. Class III is allowed.

Handguns must be registered at local sheriff or police department. This can probably be done by simply submitting a list of models, calibers, barrel lengths and serial numbers.

It is my understanding if you have a CPL from another State that Michigan will give you a Temporary one as long as you submit the required paperwork within 30 days of establishng Residency to Get a Mi. Cpl.
We also have an Open carry Law here now that says you can Openly carry any Handgun/gun as long as it is in the Open/Not Concealed and not Carried in a Pistol free Zone unless you have a CPL and the Owners of Private property such as Gandermountain or Mcdonalds restaurant are Okay with it, If they are NOT Okay with it, All they can do is ask you to remove it or Leave... Be careful as open carry still must be unloaded, Locked and Inaccessabile in any Motorized Licensed Vehicle, This is a Felony if caught....
Check on the Website MGO Michigun Gun Owners there is a forum specifically on Open Carry and the Laws.
P.S. Welcome back to Michigan, I would rather be in Alaska also, But if you need anything let me know. I am from central lower are, St. Charles, Saginaw, Freeland area. Paul

Michigan may be friendly to guns, but Governor Snyder will bleed you dry with taxes and fees.

Property Taxes are some of the highest in the country, you pay income tax on your pension, worst roads in the country, highest fuel taxes.
