    Michigan reciprocity question

    I am going to Michigan for hockey tournaments. I have a Florida, Utah, and Penn. permits. I was told that because I don't live in the states where the permits were issued, I can't conceal carry, only open carry? Is this true? Thanks.

    That appears to be correct. From http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/michigan.pdf :

    Michigan Does Not Honor Non-Resident Permits/Licenses. You must be a resident of the state they honor for your permit to be valid in Michigan.

    Yes. They are pretty clear about that. However, as with any question that could result in you ending up in the hoosegow, call the Mich State Police (MSP) at this number and ask: (517) 332-2521. Things may have changed and the info that MCRGO may have outdated info. There also comes into play some Constitutional rights about recognizing contracts and licenses from others states that has made Michigan change their minds recently.
    Another piece of advice-- don't call a local station on this question. Call the MSP. I ran into an issue with the Kalamazoo PD where they were incorrect, and MSP was contradicting them. MSP has precedence and they stepped in to correct the issue.

    Florida is the same way, must be a resident of the state whose permit you carry.

    Yes you can carry in FL with a FL non-resident permit, but you cannot carry in FL on say a Utah or Virginia non-resident permit.

    Wait a minute. I'm pretty confident that Michigan honors Florida's CPL...

    Clarification: FL will not honor, say, a MI resident with a Utah permit, even if it has reciprocy with both MI and Utah. It will honor a MI resident with a Fl permit. FL does issue permit to non-residents. It's not weird, it a step to prevent those who cannot get a permit in their resident state to simply get one from another with more lack rules.

    You'all! Please go to: Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity Maps - USA Carry

    Use the interactive map. Pay attention to the instructions on Resident vs. non-Resident.

    Here is info form the MSP website.

    It sems vague in that it says if you have a permit in your home state MI. will honor it, but I don't think Mi. honors all states

    Heres what they say, and it also has a link to the Attoney Generals website, to contact them for clarification.


    MSP - Reciprocity
    Reciprocity
    Michigan resident with Michigan Concealed Pistol License (CPL) permit wishing to carry a concealed pistol in another state:

    If you are a Michigan resident with a Michigan concealed pistol permit and want to carry your pistol into another state you are strongly encouraged to contact that state for information on their concealed pistol law. A Michigan CPL permit does not supersede any other state's law or CCW requirements.




    Non-residents of Michigan wishing to carry a concealed pistol in Michigan:



    If you are a non-resident of Michigan with a valid concealed pistol permit from your home state, Michigan will recognize your permit. However, you must carry in conformance with any and all restrictions appearing on the permit. You are subject to Michigan's concealed pistol law including but not limited to restrictions on where a concealed pistol may be carried. Please review the information provided on this website for further information.



    Please visit the Department of Attorney General's web site http://www.michigan.gov/ag/0,4534,7-...672---,00.html for concealed weapons overview and related information.

    But to answer your question, IF you have a permit from UT PA or FL, AND you live in one of those states, YOUR permit would be valid.
    IF you lived in a different state other than one of those THREE, you would be out of luck.
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    FL is weird in that they are one of the states that issue the most non-resident permits and yet don't honor NR permits themselves.
