    Yes.

    Michigan law honors concealed carry permits from all other states, provided you are a resident of the state that issued the permit. If you have a permit, then you're good to go

    In-ltch

    YES! MI honors our IN- LTCH.

    Actually MI laws are more 2nd Amendment friendly than IN.

    To specifically answer your question, as a holder of the Indiana permit, you have every right and responsibility that a CPL holder in Michigan has when you are in Michigan.

    Thank You. The Travelers Guide to Firearm Laws indicates OC is "unrestricted under state law; however, very uncommon except in rural areas". I was wondering how common OC was. I will be looking at the posts on the site too. As you can see I am new to the site.

    I have found the travelers guide to be outdated and less than OC friendly.

    Handgunlaws.us and this site should get you the info you need!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."
