I am trying to buy a 2 month old handgun from a relative in MI. He bought it new from a dealer. I live in WI & we are allowed face to face private sales of handguns. I have not been able to get anything close to a straight answer about how to do this. I was told I can't get a MI 'purchase permit' because I am not a resident. We do not have any type of similiar permit in WI. I do the paper work & the 3 day wait with the FFL dealer here in WI when I buy a handgun. I am going to MI next week and had planned to work this out. Are there any options ? Can he "give" it to me? If I went to a MI dealer to work this out they would probably go and require a MI purchase permit, that I can't get. I am not a criminal type but the seller wanted to be free from any legal worries. What do you think?? Bill of sale type receipt?? Thanks. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
