    Concealed Carry in Michigan and Wyoming

    I'm looking for a little input from board members in MI and WY. I checked Handgunlaw and both states look pretty CCW friendly. From some of you folks who live and carry there daily...how simple is the process? Are there pages of limitations and off-limits areas? Any input on either state would be appreciated.
    Thanks,

    For Wyoming, start here:
    http://attorneygeneral.state.wy.us/dci/CWP.html
    Wyoming is a "Shall Issue" state. answer dozen questions, fingerprints, photograph, pay about $80 for 5 year permit, wait about 45 days, good to go. Roughly about 11,000 permits in a state with less than 500,000 total population.

    Any other questions?

    The link to the MI state Police site. One of the links on the page is for pistol free areas.

    MI seems to have decent CCW laws. Some of the changes in recent years. We can now carry in State parks, Schools we can drop off /pick up with out disarming. Also the Castle Doctrine type law passed too.

    Actually the BAC while carrying is .02 however I would not drink and do not when carrying.

    In Michigan, if you have a CPL, you can have a handgun inside your car while in the school parking lot, picking up or dropping off your children. If you have to go inside the school, the gun stays inside the car. The 1000 foot federal gun free zone is not applicable to holders of a CPL issued by the state where the school is located, nor is it applicable to persons whose residences are inside the 1000 foot zone.

    as far as getting it in michigan, it depends a little on the county.
    the requirements and price are all the same (see police page), but waiting times may very. im in a big county so it took over 2 months from time i handed in paperwork till i got it.
    But we have decent laws. would like to get rid of some of the no carry zones but thats about it.

    Also the movie theater is not off limits in MI.unless it is over the 2500 capacity. MI legislators are introducing bills to consider repealing the gun free zones. All in all MI is CPL friendly.

    Michigan has the "must disclose immediately" if carrying when stopped by an Officer of the Law. In my experience, the officer says, "OK. Now the reason why I stopped you....."

    Wyoming is probably one of the gun friendliest states in the country. It's a shall issue state as stated by wyo-man. You need only prove proficiency with a firearm, (DD214, CCL class, hunter safety course, or live fire session on a range with a deputy) fill out the paperwork, fingerprints and pass a background check and 6-8 weeks and you'll have license in hand. Basic rules apply, can't carry in goverment offices, schools (college's also),bars, churches. Here's the back of the license. Carry in a vehicle in Wyoming does not require a CCL. Gun can be loaded and concealed in a vehicle. CCL is only if you are carrying on your person. There may be 11,000 CCW licenses issued in the state but I guarnatee most everyone has a weapon of some type or another in their vehicle at any given moment. Also lo and behold we have almost 0% violent crime here, go figure
