    I needed to bring new photos when i renewed this summer.
    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    that depends on how your county handles it. in oakland they are set up to take your pic right there (for $10, same as it would cost anywhere else)

    Go to Walgreens before to snap a photo there for $8 or so.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    The law states it must be a recent photo. Recent is not defined, but they expect it to be six months old or newer. On my recent renewal I brought a passport photo that still looks just like me. It was a second copy the one I used on my previous CPL, and even though it still looked like me, they wouldn't accept it. You are allowed to bring your own, or you can just give 'em $10 to take a new one.

    I don't know that Kent County will take your pic. Though Allegan might

    Stop by Kinkos on your way to the County Clerk. Problem solved.

    The point was that his county clerk may not have equipment to take the needed picture.
