Q: How Long Does It Take To Get Approved For A Michigan CCW/CPL?

A: Generally speaking, a Michigan Concealed Pistol License (CCW/CPL) applicant should allow two to three months for the entire process. In truth, some counties process their applicants more expeditiously than others. Moreover, some county gun boards still require applicants to appear before the county gun board, thus, the total time required for the entire process may vary widely. If three months have passes since you submitted your application, follow up with the County Clerk's Office.

You are strongly encouraged to not only conduct your own independent research but to also consult with a competent and qualified attorney before acting upon any information in this article. Laws covering self-defense, lethal force, firearms, and the Michigan Concealed Pistol License and their enforcement are always subject to change due to laws being amended, politics conducted in the Prosecutor's Office, and election results at all levels of government. Ignorance of the law, legally speaking, is not a valid excuse for running afoul of it. The penalties and fines imposed upon violators of firearms related offenses are stiff and severe.
