    Well I finally get to go in front of the gun board over here in Macomb County Michigan. That in my understanding is just a formality and they ask 5 questions and I am issued my CPL!! It will be 74 days on Feb 1st since I turned in my paperwork and had my prints taken. I have been doing so much reading, waiting and trying to find the right carry gun and now they are ALL gone unless I want to pay about $100 more. Now I ask myself how long before guns are back in stock or are people going to continue to just buy stuff just to buy it?? I personally can't afford that so that's why I did my research and just my luck the media IMO has to get everyone in a panic so nothing is available. Anyway IM FINALLY GETTING MY CPL!!!

    I wasn't asked any questions at my gun board in Jackson Co.


    There are lots of handguns available in the greater Lansing area. All of the semi autos, primers, bullets, and loaded ammo are gone.

    Go get a purchase permit!

    Why is Macomb still interviewing on "shall issue"?

    Not sure I don't work for Macomb County but I guess I will go get my PP since I'm getting my CPL in 6 days and darn in November I should have know all this crap was coming and the particular gun that is comfortable for me to hold shoot and carry would not be available once I got my CPL. I should have said forget getting something to fit ME and just bought any ol gun!! Shame on me for trying out different guns at the range at $50 a pop

    Why are you getting your pp? Do you have a gun picked out and waiting for you? Once you have your cpl you don't need a pp in Macomb county.

    No Capto I'm not actually it was sarcasm because partdeux said go get a PP. I do have a gun picked but availability is the issue. I took my class and applied in Nov before everything became unavailable. I tried a few guns but its hard because I go in and it cost range time, ammo and rental so I went when I could. I really like the SR9c so I just have to be patient. I don't work so I just have to wait this out and by the time they are available without the price being raised ill have my money. Yea I'm picky I want it new. People say get used you won't have to break it in, my first gun and I want to be the one to break it in

    Gotchya lol. I didn't note the sarcasm. I read over it too quickly.

    I'm taking my cpl class in march at close quarters tactical in Utica. I bought my cc gun the day after newtown. It was planned though, I had been researching for a while. I chose the sp101 2.25 barrel. 357. So far I love it. I bought it from Michi-gun. They have a decent selection and things are always coming in and out. Good staff also.

    When I went to my gunboard meeting they asked me about an MIP I had gotten about 8 years earlier. Other then that I think they ask have you ever been mentally ill, on depressant medication and then said the lady over there has your permit. Really it is more of a formality then anything. The guy ahead of me I remember had a few fights he got arrested for and had a call about discharging a firearm to close to a building and still got it. You won't have a problem lol.

    I also had an mip 8 years ago. Along with a possession of marijuana. Long story. That's the only thing I'm concerned with. But what's the worst that can happen?

    Sounds like a good idea. I am going to ask the leo or attorney in class also.

    And thanks for the questions link, good information there

    {sigh}
    Never ask an LEO for legal advice.

    If an attorney is teaching the legal portion, maybe. I don't think many classes hire an attorney, they are too expensive and nobody wants to pay the extra money.

    Ask 5 cops a question, you'll get 6 different answers. ( ex: proper way to store a weapon in a vehicle in Florida )

    True true. Had my pocket knife propping a door at school and two cops walked up. One reached down and grabbed it and flipped it open and asked how long the blade was.

    I said I wasn't sure and he did the old "blade the width of the palm" measurement. The other officer said "I think it's supposed to be 3"s". The one holding my knife said "no, I think it's 4"s."

    They just handed the knife back and walked away without another word. I know myself that it varies between each individual city.

    LEO's have a bad habit of "thinking" they know the law. MI firearm laws are screwy, and as I said before, even my own personal lawyer (local city prosecutor) was teaching something incorrect and I corrected him. If the city prosecutor can't get it right, how the heck would a LEO?

    I have several questions I ask CPL instructors, and have posted a few here before

    1. Can I legally OC in a school with my CPL? yes
    2. Can I legally OC in a bar with my CPL? yes
    3. If the establishment sales are 45% alcohol, can I conceal carry? this is not a simple answer and will really test their understanding of the law. The law specifically says, majority of sales. I have never met a CPL instructor that doesn't say 51%... but they are forgetting restaurants like Hooters that also sell clothing.

    Just for grins, ask how many firearms you can carry conceal, and if you have a CC can you open carry. The legal answers according to 2A attorney's I've talked to are unlimited, and yes. BUT, even an LEO neighbor stated that you're only allowed one firearm, and once you get the CC, no more OC.

    Download and study state police update #86.

    That's interesting. My dad told me the same thing about not being able to oc after getting your cpl. I'll ask them those questions also, I have already made up a list of questions I have.

    Picked up CPL this morning!! My appointment was at 1:15 pm and my wife's was at 11:15 am. Now for everyone that does not like the board I must say what a great group and they were so awesome to me and here's why, my wife was done and they gave her her's and the the guy says do you have an appointment sir? I replied yes I do but not until 1:15 and he got the odd look, so I told him well that is my wife and I drove her here. He said well how about you come on up here now? I was so excited because 1) I didn't have to go back there and 2) I didn't have to go back out in the cold lol.

    Congrats... now I wish they would get rid of that silly requirement. Even wayne county and their stupidity doesn't make you personally appear.
