To apply for a purchase permit, you must be a Michigan resident and have a valid photo ID and not have a Concealed Pistol License (CPL). Beginning April 1, 2012, the cost is $10 for the mandatory background check. 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 through Friday excluding holidays, between the hours of 8 am to 4 pm.
