How to Obtain Your Concealed Pistol License in Michigan

Many people keep their guns on them for their own self defense as well as to protect others. If you would like to carry your gun on you it is important that you have a Concealed Pistol License. A CPL legally allows you to have your gun on your person. In this article we will outline the steps that an individual must take to obtain their Concealed Pistol License in the state of Michigan. *If you are not a resident in the state of Michigan, check out Concealed Pistol License Information by State here.

State Requirements

Age & Citizenship

We will start by discussing the state requirements to obtain a Concealed Pistol License. The majority of these regulations are very standard and will allow any law-abiding and capable Michigan resident to receive their permit. First, anyone applying for a CPL must be at least 21 years of age. They must also be a citizen of the United States of America or an alien that has been legally admitted into the United States.

Residency

Next, the applicant must be a Michigan resident and hold a valid state-issued driver’s license or personal information card to receive a Michigan Concealed Pistol License. Make sense, right? Additionally, an individual will have to have had residency and live in the state six months before applying. The six month waiting period will be waived if the application has a valid Concealed Pistol License that was issued from another state or if an emergency license is required. An applicant is considered a legal Michigan resident if they have a valid Michigan driver’s license or personal identification card, are registered to vote in Michigan, are on active duty with the United States Armed Forces and are stationed outside of Michigan but Michigan is their home of record OR are permanently stationed in Michigan even if their home record is in another state.

Training

All applicants looking to obtain a Michigan Concealed Pistol License must show that they can properly handle a gun and have knowledge of gun safety by completing a safety training course or class such as this one. It is imperative that everyone knows how to properly carry a firearm so that they know how to protect themselves and others when it is in use or concealed. Gun safety is imperative to receiving the license.

Additional Requirements

Any CPL applicant cannot be subject to an order or disposition for: involuntary hospitalization or involuntary alternative treatment, legal incapacitation, personal protection order, bond or conditional release prohibiting purchase or possession of a firearm, or lastly finding of not guilty by reason of insanity. Additionally, an individual can not be prohibited from possessing, using, selling, etc. firearms. They can not be convicted of a felony in Michigan or elsewhere and must not have a felony charge pending in the state of Michigan or elsewhere when applying for the license. The applicant can also not have been dishonorably discharged from the United States Armed Forces.

There are additional misdemeanor violations that an applicant must not have been convicted of in the past 3 or 8 years (specific to each misdemeanor). There also must not be a pending misdemeanor for the individual during the application period. See state requirements 9 and 10 for the full list. Points 11 through 14 cover requirements concerning past pleas of insanity, diagnosed mental illness that include assessment that the individual is a danger to themselves or others, as well as court orders of legal incapacity in the state of Michigan or elsewhere.

Federal Requirements

Each applicant for a Concealed Pistole License must undergo a NICS background check. This is a requirement for anyone in the country looking to obtain a concealed carry license. Passing a background check helps to prevent people who are undeserving of carrying from obtaining a permit and abusing its power. Learn more about NICS background checks here.

Tips For Getting Your Rifles and Guns Appraised

firearm appraisals

Tips For Getting Your Rifles and Guns Appraised

It doesn’t matter if you are a new or old gun owner, a season expert in firearms, or the recipient of a family heirloom gun, everyone can benefit understanding and knowing the value of their firearm. By knowing the value of your firearm, it can help you immensely in the process of buying or selling a gun, as well as just simply help you understand one of your assets a little bit better. Some people will go to the lengths of even having their firearms appraised to find the true market value.
If you have a firearm that you would like to know the value of, there are a few things that you should look into for your specific gun or firearm. The value of a firearm is primarily made up of the following variables, make and model, the type of gun that is owned, the action and caliber of the firearm, how rare it is, and the condition of the gun! These are all things that with some research can give you a fairly accurate idea of how valuable your firearm is. Let’s break each of these variables down so that we can understand each one a little bit better.

Make and Model:

The make and model of your gun can play a large part in how much it is worth, whether it is a rifle, pistol, long gun or anything else, the gun itself will reflect how much was spent on producing the firearm as a whole. Some popular firearm brands that have stood the test of time include Smith & Wesson, Remington, Sturm, Ruger & Co., SIG Sauer, and more. These are brands that are well known for producing high quality, accurate, reliable firearms for use.

Type of Firearm:

The type of firearm that you own can also affect the value of your firearm. It’s possible that in whatever brand gun you have that a rifle is going to be of more value than a handgun, or vice versa! Depending on all of the other variables such as make, year, action and caliber, the type of firearm also can make a difference in the value.

firearm appraisal

Year:

Year can also play a large part in determining the value of a gun. For instance Browning manufactured firearms in Belgium until the mid 70’s when they moved most of their operations to Japan. In today’s market, a Belgium made browning holds significantly more value than a Japanese made browning. Another example is the Colt 1911. These pistols have been in production since the early 1900’s but knowing the year the pistol was manufactured can tell a story about your firearm. If your pistol was manufactured in 1942 it is considered a World War II era gun which can increase the value by thousands of dollars. Many companies including Colt and Browning have online databases that can tell you the year of your gun based on the serial number alone.

Action and Caliber:

The action of a gun refers to the part of a firearm that you load as well as the area that ejects the empty bullet casing. This could refer to a lever action firearm, pump action, bolt action, and semi-automatic. The caliber of a firearm refers to the diameter of the “bore” this is generally measured in hundredths of an inch or in millimeters.

How Rare the Gun Is:

This may seem obvious, but how rare your firearm is plays a large role in how much your gun is worth! If hundreds of thousands of the gun you own are also out in circulation, anyone could buy one fairly easily and the value of your firearm isn’t going to be as much. In the opposite way, if you own a gun that does not exist in many other places, and there are not many others out being bought and sold, you have something that holds more value and the worth of your firearm will directly reflect that fact!

Condition:

A simple concept for most firearms owners, the better you take care of your gun and firearm, the more it will hold its value and worth. If you are reckless with your firearm, the body will show it, there might be more wear and tear than normal, or maybe the accuracy and dependability has been compromised. Another factor that plays into the condition is also how many times the gun has been shot. When your gun has been well used the wear will show, even if you take good care of your firearm, there will always be wear and tear that incurs.

gun appraisal

So now that you know some of the various variables that directly relate to the value and market value of your firearm, what are some tips that you can be a part of to see the highest value for your firearm? Many of the different things that an appraiser will look at to accurately evaluate your firearm are things that are out of your control, but there is one thing that you can control, take good care of your guns. Taking care of your rifles and firearms will definitely help them hold value. Clean them regularly, polish them, and be sure to care for any scratches or nicks that might be present. If you are going to invest in a firearm, do your research, invest in a gun that is going to hold its value, that has been proven reliable through it’s brand.

We hope that you learned a little bit more about firearms and appraisals, if you are looking for a new opportunity to invest in some new firearms for your collection, check out our latest auctions – we have tons of great, high quality guns up for auction today!

The Best Gun Accessories for Hunting Season

Gun Accessories for Hunting Season

The Best Gun Accessories for Hunting Season

With the weather cooling down and hunting season upon us, it’s time to start thinking about getting your guns cleaned and sighted and dusting off your hunting clothes. Don’t forget to think about upgrading some of your gear so that you can have the most successful season possible this year. So, as your preparing to head out for your first hunt of the season, what are some of the best gun accessories that you want to consider adding to your pack? Many of your more specific supplies will depend on what you are hunting for this season, as well as where you are going to be hunting, so here a few general hunting accessories that you won’t want to go without this year.

Ammunition Case

A good ammunition case is one of the first things that you’ll want for your hunting expedition. A good case will keep your ammo dry, safe, and in one easily accessible area for whenever you need it. It’s a good idea to upgrade your ammunition from the box it came in, into a heavier duty box that is ready for any weather, landscape, or terrain depending on where your prey takes you. There are many great ammunition cases out there, on places like amazon.com or cabelas.com for reasonable prices – go find yourself one today!

Gun or Rifle Sling

Purchasing a reliable gun sling is important when it comes to preparing your gear for the upcoming season. A quality sling will last you years and allow you to hunt smart, safe, and quietly. There are hundreds of gun sling options including padded slings, leather slings, slings with ammo loops, and more! Carrying your gun safely is easier with a sling, not to mention a necessity to climb with your firearm if you are hunting from a tree!

ammunition case gun accessory

Gun Case

A quality gun case is one of the best gun accessories to have and is crucial for any hunter. A case protects your gun, allows for safe transit, as well as keeps it dry and in good condition. You can invest in a soft cover slip gun case which might cost a little less up front but will not provide you with the protection, or weatherproof capability that a hard case will. A quality firearm hard case might be more of an investment up front, but generally will provide a better environment for your firearm as well as possibly some extra storage space for you to carry some other things you might need.

Shooting sticks

Some people downplay the necessity of having shooting sticks along with them for hunting season. But if you’re hunting with a rifle or larger firearm, you’ll want shooting sticks to make sure that you can keep your gun as steady as possible to make the best shot that you can make. Shooting sticks allows hunters to expand their locations, not being confined to only locations where a blind, stand, or place where a “built in” gun rest exists. With shooting sticks you can go anywhere and hunt anywhere. This is important for any hunters who participate in hunting by stalking their prey! You have the freedom to move and set up wherever you need to in order to get the best shot.

Scope

Although having a scope is not always necessary, it’s highly recommended when it comes to hunting with a rifle and other select firearms. A scope can assist a hunter to make the best shot they can make – as well as increasing your range of shot! Invest in a good scope that will last you years of hunting seasons, you will not regret adding that quality glass to your collection. Purchasing a high quality scope may seem expensive up front, but it may be the difference in filling your tag or coming back empty handed. 

Other Useful Hunting Accessories You Won't Want To Be Without

There are a bunch of other various items that you will not want to leave the house without when it comes to hunting season this year. Be sure to pack your license and gear, along with the following items…

Rangefinder

A rangefinder is helpful for any hunter in discovering distance and executing the best shot possible - especially when you are in a new location that you might not know as well. When you first settle into your hunting spot be sure to range find a few distinct land marks and various distances as you may not have the time to do so in the moment

LED Flashlight

Consider packing an LED flashlight into your pack as well as a black light, and maybe in a hat light too! When dusk closes in on a hunter, it can be challenging to find your way back to camp, not to mention impossible to follow any sort of blood trail. Packing in at least a good flashlight will be useful for any hunter.

Extra Batteries

Spending time out in the wilderness is a sure way to drain your batteries quickly – make sure to pack some extra batteries for your flashlight, rangefinder, and any other battery-operated items, but also consider taking a portable charging port or battery pack. You can find portable battery packs almost anywhere, all you have to do is charge it up before you leave, and when your phone or other items are getting low, plug in!

Handheld GPS

Purchasing a handheld GPS is a great accessory to add to your hunting bag. You never know where your cell phone might drop service leaving you in an unfamiliar location. Garmin has tons of handheld GPS options that will fit anyone's budget.

Hearing Protection

Hearing protection might not be at the top of most hunters priority list, but we are here to tell you that it is an important piece of gear that people should have in their bags. Guns are loud and can damage your ears if not protected – so throw in a pair of ear plugs, just for good measure.
