    My two permits cover me to CC in Michigan, and I'll stick to that.

    Contrary to what the book says,Open carry is very common and widely supported in MI,ive OC'd everywhere from detroit to delta county.

    To carry a handgun in Michigan you need some sort of permit or registration,so things like a purchase permit or a FOID would also count.

    michigan only recognizes RESIDENT permits from out of state,so if your from one state and have a permit from a different state,you may not carry in Michigan.

    Long arm carry is legal in MI too,no permit needed,but generally not reccomended in populated areas.
    The best resource for anything and everything open carry!

    With a non resident permit you may only OC. Yes.
    When OCing with a non resident permit you must follow MCL 750.2345d. No. "750.234d (2) This section does not apply to any of the following:... (c) An individual licensed by this state or another state to carry a concealed weapon."
    Make sure you fully understand this law. It refers to all firearms not just handguns. The biggest part to pay attention to is that you can not possess a firearm on the premises of ANY place that sells alcohol. This means bars, Krogers, Walmart, gas stations. If you have a concealed permit issued by your state this law does not apply to you. Notice 750.234d does not say anything about "issued by your state of residence".Not all Michigan LEO's know this either so you may choose to avoid places that sell alcohol to avoid hassle but by the exact wording of the law you can.


    Michigan Legislature - Section 750.234d

    Does Michigan honor any state ccw? Even if the home state does not have reciprocity?
    I have NY license. NY honors no other state's ccw.

    Yes. Mich does honer your NY conceal license since it's issued by your state of residence.
    Can't conceal carry on these premises even with a Pistol License:
    Michigan Legislature - Section 28.425o (Basically this is our conceal carry law)

    Thanks for all the info so far. I only planned on OCing while in the woods camping/hiking with my wife a very little ones. Only time I go to the UP other than to snowmobile but then the pistol is secured in my pack pack unloaded.

    Two permits? Michigan only recognizes resident permits. If you have non-resident permits, they don't count. But as you appear to be from Indiana, I presume you have an Indiana permit, that would work here.

  10. NO!

    In fact you can't bring your pistol to Michigan. (rifle and shotgun are okay i believe)

    according to the michigan state police web page

    MSP - Michigan's Concealed Pistol Law - FAQs

    "Without a CPL, a non-resident may not have a pistol in Michigan."

    question 2 under Firearms Related Questions.

    sorry

    sorry
    1st you should never get legal advice from police.
    2nd what MSP posted there is their opinion.
    3rd What you read is our Concealed Pistol Law, we are talking OC here.
    I just think that MSP web page is a joke.
