Default Re-Registering Pistols from Out of State?

Turned 21 deployed, returned to Texas and now I own some handguns that were all legally purchased here in Texas.

When I move back home to Michigan in the next few months will I have to re-register these pistols with the state of Michigan using Purchase Permits?

How does that work?

They have changed the laws quite a bit recently. I know you can mail in the paper work from a purchase that was made in MI. If I was in your shoes I would just take the pistols (unloaded & in a case of course) to your local Michigan PD with any paperwork you currently have for them. They should be able to help you out. I would not think it should be a problem for them to issue you the proper papers.

Agree with Derek, if they are already registered in your name, they are in the national database as yours. Good to go.

But you could call the Rochester PD to make sure.

I just moved to Michigan from another state. How do I register my firearm(s)?

Follow previous instructions on "How to Obtain a Permit to Purchase a Firearm"

That's from the Oakland County Sheriff's website.

I was hoping someone here could answer it before I tie up a line interrogating some poor clerk

I thought that the local PD's did NOT want you to bring them in anymore. I'd make absolutely sure before hand.

As far as 'How NOT to bring a gun to the police' it makes sense.

You may be correct. I always take mine into the PD with the paper work for 2 reasons.
1. I want to make sure the paperwork makes it there. U.S. mail is great but I don't ever want to hear the words "Sir, this gun is not in our system" because it got lost in the mail.
2. They always want to see my new toy. (small town PD who knows me on a personal level)

Here is a link to MSP web page. I thried to copy and paste some stuff but it won't let me since it is a PDF file. It looks to me like you must register it here if you plan to make residence here. Better safe than sorry.

Good luck. Welcome back to Michigan & thank you for your service.

Most of his posts do not.

My local PD does not want you to bring a weapon in to register it. Just the paperwork is all that is needed.

Although it's been a few years, I took mine to the local PD and treated it like I just bought a whole bunch of pistols at once.

So even though they're all purchased legally and registered to me in the national database I still have to treat them like I don't own them when I move back to Michigan?

They need to be in Michigan's database, or you could be in deep do do if you have them on you during a search.

So it's a $5 fee for a purchase permit... Do you need an individual permit for each weapon?
