Its been a while since I've been here. Its good to be back.

In case you haven't heard, Iowa just recently went to Constitutional Carry. So, we are no longer required to have a permit to carry weapons. If my state does not require a permit to carry, do I need one to carry concealed in Michigan?

Also, I built a .300 blackout AR pistol with an 80% lower. I generally have that locked under the rear seat of my pickup. Is that something I should leave home or can I bring it with me?

Open Carry is legal with restrictions. You must have a valid permit/license to carry a loaded handgun in a
vehicle in Michigan. For Residents of Michigan without a CPL you must carry a firearm registered to you.
For Non Residents if you do not have a permit/license from your state of residents Concealed and/or Open
Carry is not an option for you
...
Does the firearm have a serial number? If it does not, leave it at home.

from IA state patrol, quote:
Reasons why Iowans may still consider obtaining an Iowa permit to carry:

Allows Iowans to carry in states with permit reciprocity while traveling.
May prevent potential delays resulting from a delayed NICS check when purchasing from a FFL.
May clarify any questions an individual has regarding their eligibility to carry or possess firearms. unquote.


from handgunlaw.us - Michigan, quote:
Michigan honors all other states Resident Permits/Licenses to carry concealed firearms. Michigan Does Not Honor Non-Resident Permits/Licenses. You must be a resident of the state that issued your Permit/License for that Permit/License to be valid in Michigan.

Yeah. Thanks Solus.

I had let mine expire by accident, realized it was expired immediately prior to traveling to Michigan, and was scrambling for answers.

Thanks again. Have a great day!
