Default Difference between Ohio and Michigan gun laws

My wife and I currently live in Ohio, and are moving to Michigan soon. I've looked up the difference in gun laws, and I saw that in Michigan you have to get a license to buy a handgun (unless you have a concealed carry permit) and afterwards you have to register them with the city police/county sheriff. A couple of acquaintances that live in Michigan though said it's considerably more difficult to buy a gun in Michigan than in Ohio and basically advised me to stock up as much as I can before I move.

Anyone else have experience with the gun laws in Michigan being a problem?
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

It's not that tough... you go to the local PD and fill out an application and three days later get a certificate that's valid for 10 days to purchase a pistol. With a CCW (actually called a CPL), you just go buy the pistol.
