Thats should be handy when i go to renew if my county has it by then but i wont hold my breath
If I were you, I wouldn't hold my breath. Wayne County government doesn't seem to be very gun-owner friendly, from what I've seen and been told.

I'm hoping the SoS will take over the process soon, myself.

Here is KZOO it takes at least 45 days from date of file. It sucks cuz your training class is finished, you paid a buttload of money, got a nice rig set-up and you're all STOKED to start carrying and then WHAM! - you gotta wait 45 friggin days.
I wouldn't complain if I were you. From the date I filed my application with the Ingham County Clerk to the day I got my permit was 103 days. A little over 3 months. THAT is a long wait. And it's not the longest. I've talked to people in Wayne county who've waited over 6 months.

DANG, no doubt! :dead:


It seems, at least, that folks around here in KZOO are pretty receptive to the idea of civillian carry. The only hesitations I've received have been mainly from other college kids who, the majority at least, are in the process of finding themselves and what they believe in.
There's not all that much resistance to CCW here. I've yet to be disarmed during a traffic stop, and I've been stopped and questioned about 4 or 5 times. Either by DNR Police, Ingham County Sherrif, or Lansing PD. And in those times, only two asked to see my registration card for the gun I had. And the last stop, the cop didn't even ask for my permit or license.

He stopped me because he thought at first my license plate had expired. Then, when I had stopped, he realized the SOS had printed my tag on last years color, even though it was for this year. He didn't know for sure until he'd called it in, which he couldn't do until we stopped, as he was driving a motorcycle. I informed him right away about my permit and pistol, he thanked me, then asked if I knew why he pulled me over. I said I had no clue, as I knew I wasn't speeding. Then he informed me about the tag color problem, apologized for pulling me over, and again, thanked me for informing him of my permit and pistol. Again, he never asked for any of it, I can only assume he ran my DL and saw I had a permit from the LEIN enquiry. Still one of the nicest police stops I've ever been through. ;)

Oh yeah, I've not gotten a single ticket in all the times I've been stopped since I got my CPL. :D

That is really odd because no where in any of the CCW laws, in my training, or any website does it say anything about having to carry your Pistol Purchase Permit registration card. It only says to present a Michigan DL/ID and the CPL permit.
You're correct, it's not mandatory, but it is advised. I carry a copy. The originals are locked up in a fireproof box at home.
