Gun Registrations & Purchase Permits

To apply for a purchase permit, you must be a Redford resident with valid photo ID and not have a Concealed Pistol License (CPL). Beginning April 1, 2012 the cost is $10 for the mandatory background check. You will also need a second form of identification – either a vehicle registration or voter registration with your current Redford address. For other acceptable forms, please contact the Records Bureau at (313) 387-2531.

If you have a valid concealed Pistol License (CPL), you will need a sales record instead of a purchase permit. You may pick this up at no cost.

You can apply for a purchase permit or pick up a sales record Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, excluding holidays, between the hours of 8:00am to 1:00pm and 2:00pm to 4:00pm
