Michigan you have to take a CPL class thats eight hours long then you have to get finger printed then depending on what county your in it could take a week or it could take seven months. Im going on three weeks right now and cant wait to get it in the mail. And it cost $105 every five years. But if thats what i need to do then thats what i gotta do.

Actually, it can be fairly easy to get a carry permit in MA, depending on where you live. The decision rests entirely with the local chief of police, so if you live in a more rural town where the chiefs tend to support gun ownership, it's pretty routine. If you live in a city like Boston or Cambridge, it can be really difficult if not impossible. The really stupid thing about MA is that there are all these restrictions on the types of guns you can own (you can't buy a Glock made after the mid-1980s, for example), but all that is required to apply for a carry permit is a three-hour course on gun safety that does not even have to include firing a gun of any kind.

Any idea what the rationale is behind those restrictions?

Well I picked up a brand new Glock 26 at BW Outfitters in Adair Iowa today for $525.00, and the wife just entered the payment info for a Max Tuck holster from White Hat holsters for me. So I hope it makes it here by Christmas. Also picked up 300 rounds of ammo so tomorrow should be a fun day 2 friends coming over to shoot some stuff up!

It's complicated, as only governments can be. There are two separate branches of state government involved, and each has its own set of requirements for things like trigger pull, testing for misfires, and it goes on and on. Many manufacturers -- Glock, Kimber and others -- don't even bother to take all the time to jump through the hoops to get their guns "Massachusetts compliant" or prove that they are, as the market in MA isn't big enough for them to warrant it.

That was my favorite thing when I lived in Iowa. The permit lets you buy a long gun without having to run the FBI check!

In michigan for a long gun all it takes is about 5min of paper work and your done. But to get a pistol without a cpl you have to get a permit to purchase that has to be notorized and a portion of the permit has to be handed back to the police department in the city you live in. Way to long of a process. If you have a cpl all you do is walk in buy the hand gun and you still need to drop off a section of the "permit" to the police, but that is given to you from the place you bought the hand gun so its not to bad. Even though im still waiting for my cpl to come in the mail.......
