A Michigan concealed pistol licensee who wishes to carry a concealed pistol in another state is responsible for complying with the laws of that state


Most of the information on this page has been copied from the State of Michigan Attorney General's (Michael Cox's) webpage.  It is current as of 26-September, 2004.

Michigan's concealed pistol law expressly recognizes permits issued by other states' residents. M.C.L. 28.432a. However, non-residents are subject to all Michigan gun laws while carrying a pistol in Michigan.  These laws include specifying where pistols may not be carried, the implied blood/alcohol consent provision, the requirement of immediate disclosure to a peace officer when stopped, and carrying while under the influence of alcohol.  A non-resident should therefore study the Michigan concealed carry law before carrying a concealed pistol in Michigan.

Similarly, a Michigan concealed pistol licensee who wishes to carry a concealed pistol in another state must comply with the laws of that state. 

Those that recognize Michigan issued permits are:

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Idaho
  • Indiana
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • Montana
  • New Hampshire
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Utah
  • Vermont (does not require carry permits by residents or non residents)
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • Wyoming

Anyone traveling to one of the above states should familiarize themselves with that state's pistol laws.  Most states have websites that list the concealed carry laws.

Those states who do not recognize non resident permits are:

  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Connecticut
  • Hawaii
  • Illinois
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Maine
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Minnesota
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island
  • Wisconsin

Several states have indicated that they will recognize Michigan permit upon entry of a reciprocity agreement. Those are:

  • South Carolina
  • Texas
  • West Virginia

We have advised those states that we wish to enter into such agreements and will sign them as soon as they are received.

Some states allow for the application for a temporary CCW permit issued by that state or local unit of government. Others exempt law enforcement officers.

Federal law expressly provides that persons may carry a firearm in their vehicles while traveling through another state provided that the possession of the weapon is legal in both the states of origin and destination and the weapon is unloaded and carried in the trunk of the vehicle or a locked container other than the glove box. See 18 U.S.C. 926a
