    In Michigan you are required to have a purchase permit, unless you have a MI CPL. Not sure if they will recognize your GA permit for that. Call the sheriff's department of where you live.

    Where are you a resident

    If you are still a GA resident, the simple answer is "NO".

    If you are now a MI resident, then it would depend on what the MI laws say.

    Interstate handgun sales are, to put it politely, "frowned upon."

    I was told no

    I just moved from PA to MI

    As soon as you change residency to Michigan your out of state CCW/CPL is not honored by Michigan

    You have to get a Michigan CPL or a purchase permit

    Michigan Law


    " What are the steps necessary to purchase and legally possess a pistol in Michigan without a concealed pistol license?"

    MCL 28.422 The prospective purchaser must successfully pass (70% or more) a basic pistol safety questionnaire and obtain a License to Purchase, which is valid for 10 days, from the local law enforcement agency. The purchaser must sign a notarized sworn statement that they meet the Michigan qualifications to purchase/obtain a pistol. At the time of the purchase, the purchaser and the seller complete the form. The License to Purchase, must be returned in person or by certified or first class mail to the local law enforcement agency within 10 days.
