Michigan Concealed Carry FAQ: How To Register Pistol Bought At Private Sale

Michigan Concealed Carry FAQ: How To Register Pistol Bought At Private Sale

Q: I may be buying a used handgun. What do I need to do to register it? I'm in Oakland County.

A: Since you have a CPL, you are not required to obtain a Pistol Purchase Permit from your local law enforcement agency. Presumably, you are buying "used" from a private seller. Accordingly, your CPL will serve as your permit to buy a pistol. (If you are buying "used" from a FFL, he will guide you through the process.)

You will need to download a "Pistol Sales Record Form" (RI-60) from the Internet via Google. Both you and the private seller will carefully, accurately, and fully complete each section of the form. After the transaction has been completed, you will give the seller his copy and return the remaining sections to your local law enforcement agency within 10 days for registration unless you are otherwise exempt.

Do not bring the unregistered handgun to the police station for a safety inspection. That step has been eliminated.


Note: Persons under the age of 21 can't buy handguns from FFLs
