    Hello from Michigan!

    Hi everyone!

    I have been lurking the forums for a couple of weeks and I finally decided to join up.

    I am still pretty new to firearms. I purchased a Springfield XDM 5.25" 9mm a more than a year ago. As of yesterday, I filed my CPL application. They claim it is going to take 3-4 months, but I am hoping for much sooner!

    After lunch today, I swung by a LGS and picked up a Beretta Nano after reading about 50 billion reviews on small 9's over the last couple of weeks. (glad to be on vacation this week, it allowed me to slip in when they were a little less busy!)

    Thanks for having me and I hope to pick up a lot of information here!

    Welcome! I've had my MI CPL since early November, took my class in mid October... it only took a month for me, and thats because I had to save up the rest of the cash for 3 weeks and missed the deadline to get in so that I would be in on Octobers gun board meeting..

    So depending on your county, and how busy the county clerks office is, it probably wont be as long as they say.. its State law that the gun board meet once per month to go over new applicants and renewals anyways.
