    Private Handugn Purchase Advice

    What type of advice would you give for private purchase in Michigan. I know I need to make sure the gun serial # matches the safety certificate, but is there any other important things I need to check for to make sure the seller is truly registered to the gun. What about sales receipts? Is there a website specific to private gun sales in Michigan?

    Thanks,

    Adam

    Hi Adam,

    Start at the State of Michigan's web site, then go to your county clerks web site and they will give you all the answers you need.

    I can tell you this much from personal experience. Before I got my CPL a friend of mine from Indiana gave me a S&W Sigma 9mm. I took it to the Sheriff's office to get it registered and they took the serial number of the gun and entered it into their system. While that was going on I had to fill out an application for the license. One question was "Where did you buy this gun?" I talked to one of the deputies and asked how I should respond and he said I should write "It was a gift from out of state". Apparently that's a catch all easy answer for people to use so they will register the gun. Anyway before I left I had the registration after they checked out the gun's background and mine.
    Good Luck
    Jack

    PS I've never heard of a safety certificate and you don't need a receipt

    It's pretty easy if you have a CPL. Anyway, you can download a form off the net if you google "how to sell a handgun in MI. The form is really self-explanatory.
