In 2000, the legislature significantly amended Michigan’s firearms laws to make Michigan what is known as a “shall issue” state. Previously, county gun boards were given considerable discretion to issue concealed pistol permits and the decision often depended on a showing of need by the applicant, which varied from county to county. Public Act 381, which went into effect on July 1, 2001, changed that so that anyone who met the strict qualifications of the law would receive a concealed pistol permit. Today, thousands of responsible Michigan residents have been issued concealed pistol permits.
This is the class required to obtain a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) so that you may carry a concealed weapon (CCW). Classes are generally offered on the 2nd Saturday of each month, call for availability on specific dates. Cost: members $45 – non members $ 65. Class size is limited. Preregister by calling Ron Carlton at (616) 754-6066 (print form and send with check to address on form) or drop off at club during hours posted on home page.
ADVANCED CPL COURSE
The ACPL (Advanced Concealed Pistol License) class is designed to qualify successful students for exemption from PFZs (Pistol Free Zones) by additional training in using a handgun against an armed aggressor. At present, the legislature has NOT passed the necessary legislation to gain this exemption but looks promising.
First class will be May 26 at 9AM. There will be a pre-qualification on basic pistol handling prior to taking the course. As an option, we will be there at 6:30 PM on the 25th if you want to go thru the pre-qualification. You must pass it to go thru the class. There will be a $25.00 fee for pre-qualification which is not refundable if you do not pass. If you can’t make the evening pre-qualification you may take it the day of the class.
The cost of the course is $150 for non members and $125 for members. The $25 pre-qualification will be applied to the fee if the pre-qualification is passed.
See the application for the requirements of the course.
