    So I might be going out of state for the Xmas holidays, and just thought of something interesting.

    I have an unrestricted CPL due to being a reserve officer, I'm exempt from the normal no carry zones. Other states have reciprocity agreements with MI. I'm assuming the answer is no, but just to throw the question out there, do other states have unrestricted versions of the normal CCW permits, and if they do, does reciprocity grant me the same unrestricted rights in that state if they have reciprocity with MI, or does reciprocity just grant me the watered down standard CCW privs in that state? If they recognize my permit, it IS unrestricted after all... :supergrin:

    In case you're wondering, I'm pretty sure LEOSA does not cover MI reserves, as we don't have statutory arrest authority as far as I'm aware.

    There's got to be a backstory to this statement...

    OP, WI recognizes the MI CPL...

    No, the states that do the idiotic tiered permits are the states that grudgingly issue permits to non-residents, or to their own residents.

    For example, MA has a tiered system. No reciprocity without their permit.
    NY also has a tiered system (make that cluster**** of systems), no reciprocity.

    If state B honors you state's permit, you follow the rules of the state you are in.

    We had this one out a few months back. I agree with your assessment. One very vocal individual in that thread believed that we were wrong because reserves have the statutory ability to make a CITIZEN'S ARREST. I think not.

    MI is actually a shall issue state... not sure I'd call it a tiered system. You're either subject to the pistol free zones, or not. I suppose that's a 2 tiered system...

    Reciprocity on permits means that you would have the same privileges as a resident with a permit (unless some exception is carved out in the state laws for the state you are visiting).

    LEOSA (IIRC) does not allow you to carry everywhere just because you can do that in your home state. If I am correct on that, see my first paragraph.

    We only have a "one tiered" system. CCW gets to carry per the CCW laws. Cops can pretty much carry anywhere. Since you don't have statutory authority as a reserve, that would mean you rely on your CPL so you'd fall under the CCW laws.

    I thought LEOSA let you ignore state no carry zones...

    Yep, you are basically just another CWP carrier outside of your state since you cannot carry nationwide under LEOSA unless you are a "qualified" officer.

    It does, with the exception of government property, and if the property owner posts it (if state law allows this).

    I have a CCL, but if I am going to travel, I prefer to carry the badge and gun. One, I know where it is. Two, there really isn't too many places I can't take it.

    It does, except for those specifically allowed by LEOSA:

    This. You have to comply with both MI CPL laws and the laws of the state you're in. What might not be pistol free in MI (or, in your case, exempted) might be no carry in another state, so you couldn't carry there just because you have a MI CPL. If you weren't exempted, you couldn't carry in the pistol free zones in another state if they're allowed there because that would be counter to your CPL, though I doubt the other state would enforce it and it doesn't seem likely MI would ever know without any kind of enforcement action.

    Agree with this

    Have seen this proposed before, but doubt that is the case. If that were true, someone from Chicago couldn't use a non-resident permit in a state they're visiting because everywhere in Chicago is a no pistol zone.

    Michigan forbids carry in certain types of places in Michigan. Those prohibitions don't apply in other states since Michigan has no jusrisdiction over those types of places in the the other states. The cops in other states have no authority to enforce MI laws in Michigan, let alone their state.

    Technically no way to tell who's right until there's case law. However, I suppose you could use DL's as a guide. Do other states enforce MI restrictions on a teen DL in their state? Or do they have their own guidelines/restrictions for new teen drivers which apply to MI teen drivers while in their state?

    I have the same issue that Randy has. A reserve with an exempted CPL. Thanks for all the advice.
