We're moving to the Livonia area. I've had a couple other people tell me that handgun laws in Michigan are a bit strict, and that if I can, it's best to stock up before I move.

If that's the case, I may hold off on any rifles and shotguns until after I move, and buy a couple of the handguns I've thought about getting.

I'd like to pick up some kind of 1911 at some point, and I'm also considering something like a Kahr PM9, so that if I chose to at some point I'd have something small that I could carry concealed.

As far as buying new handguns in MI,it's no different doing that than having to register the ones you already own once you get here,no more strict to buy or register than buying any gun from an FFL store.In a sense MI is strict,and in another they are not,if you own a handgun you can transport it,shoot it in the state forests and even open carry it with no CCW,but on the other hand you can't lend handguns to friends,cant carry it in your vehicle's passenger compartment without a CCW,can't even ride a bicycle with an open carried gun without a CCW etc.

I thought that the difference was that you only had to register guns that you already owned when you moved. If you bought them in-state, you had to get a license first.

Getting a license and registering already owned handguns is one in the same.You have to go to the police station,or wherever your county does this at,and get a permit to purchase a pistol,they run a simple background check just like at an FFL,and if you already own the gun you just fill in the card with the make,model and serial# etc and give it back to them,they give you a copy and send a copy to state police,if you buy a new handgun you just take that same permit card to the gunstore and they fill in what you are buying etc.Getting a CCW or CPL as it's called here is a whole other story,easy to get here usually,but a different process.

I have a 10/22 and Mark III.
And I have a Howa 1500 20in HB in 308 w/6x18x50 Nikon. I have actually hit a gallon milk jug at 700 yards. It's a blast to shoot. I can keep you at bay a ways out....

But would love to have a good AR of some sorts.

Thats what I'd go for next..

I had a custom .338 lapua magnum built for me and I did a similar test with the milk jug with the guy who built it for me. He made me shoot one at 1200 yards to prove the accuracy and quality of the rifles he build and I hit it on the first shot. Never did get to test it again seeing that I don't have 1200 yards to shoot at unless I use his range at his house lol.

I'm being tempted by the .44 S&W wheel guns.

I feel like I'm being seduced by the Dark Side
