Do I need to obtain a Purchase Permit to purchase a pistol?

No, residents wishing to purchase pistols from licensed dealers in Michigan are no longer required to obtain a purchase permit from their local law enforcement agency. Licensed dealers are now able to produce the appropriate pistol registration paperwork and perform the appropriate federal background checks. Once the background check is approved and the paperwork is completed, the dealer will give you a copy of the Pistol Sales Record that needs to be delivered to the Public Safety Department. The State of Michigan no longer requires an inspection of the firearm.
