How to sell face to face in Mich, what is necessary?

I have a G19 that my wife and I bought that we decided was not a wise purchase at the time. We are selling this gun, possibly to someone locally and wanted to know what all we needed to do this. We did not proceed with registering the firearm because of the intent to sell and I bought it with my MI CPL so there is no "green card".

What do you recommend? Should the other person have a purchasers permit, should we do it at a police station, etc??

Thanks for your help!!

Was the portion of the RI-60 sent into the State police when you bought it?

1. You need to take the gun in and get your "green card".

2. buyer "MUST" have a purchase permit or RI-60

3. Make out a bill of sale with firearm serial number and buyers info.

Yes, the RI-60 was sent in to the State Police. I talked to the buyer and he mentioned I would need to go register it (get the green card). He went and got his green card already too. Looks like I'm good to go after registering it, thanks so much!!!

P.S. What are my penalties for not registering it in 10 days? More like 30??

The only time requirement is for those using a purchase permit. Yours was bought using the pistol sales record/CCW, so there is no time frame. However, keeping it reasonable would be a good idea.

I think you mean "safety inspection" , but I have waited a month before without a problem. The local "safety inspection" hours are not very accommodating. Three hours, two days a week! Then they wonder why there are so many people there at one time!

Do a search in this forum. The police dept now has to do inspections and issue your green card during all regular business hours...

Wrong. No matter how you buy it (Purchase Permit or CPL) you still have 10 days to have it "Safety Inspected" and get your green card.

That is, unless it's changed in just the last couple months.

Wrong, right back at 'ya.

Quote:
Q: I recently purchased a handgun with my CCW permit. My question is how many days do I have to bring my new handgun to the proper authorities for a safety inspection from the purchase date?

A: There is no time period specified in the statute. The “safety inspection” statute was seen as complementary to the “license to purchase” statute and that statute requires a person to return the completed license to the issuing agency within 10 days of the purchase. I think that the legislature envisioned the safety inspection being done at that time. Since you are exempt from the license to purchase requirements, there is no specified time for the safety inspection. The law would presume that you must do it within a “reasonable time”—whatever that is. I would suggest that you do it within ten days, but that is advice and not “law”. !
http://www.mcrgo.org/mcrgo/d_ccwfaq2.asp

Hence the caveat, "However, keeping it reasonable would be a good idea." in my original comment.

I stand corrected. You are right.

I guess the reason I assumed it still had to be done in 10 days is that I thought it said so on the pistol sales record, which I get a white copy of. Also, I think the folks at the gun store said so.

I went back and looked at my sales record form, however, and it says no such thing. It says only that the SELLER has to send his copy to the State Police within 10 days, and that the pistol has to be presented for a safety inspection...but gives no time limit for the safety inspection part.

Thanks for the correction.

Correct. The AG's opinion from last year says exactly that.

Here's a link to the Attorney General's Opinion, which carries the weight of law until such time as the Legislature passes a law saying otherwise.

AG's OPINION:

http://www.firearmsalliance.org/AGLetter7-17-06.pdf

It also states that they may NOT charge any fee for the Permit to Purchase of the Safety Inspection, except for Notary service, IF you choose to use THEIR Notary, which you don't have to do. Before I got my CPL, I took mine to my bank and had it notarized for free.

There are some other interesting things in the Opinion, also.

There is a Police station on the eastside that will only do a safety inspection on Tuesday's and Thursday's for 3 hours each of the days.
I was 5 minutes early once and they made me wait the 5 minutes before they would give my forms to fill out. They also wait until 4 or 5 people are there before they will even look at a weapon.

That's not legal anymore. I would sue...you will win for sure, and they will pay your court costs. Seriously. The AG's opinion holds the weight of law until such time as the legislature makes the law more clear.

Show them the AG's opinion.

Send a message to user 'gsbell', he works with SAFR (www.firearmsalliance.org) and has been working long and hard to whip delinquent cop shops into line as far as days/hours they will do purchase permits and registration.

I went to the SAFR website: www.firearmsalliance.org , went to the contacts and did not find 'gsbell' in the contact list. Also went to different links and each time I was routed to " page cannot be found". Is there any other contact?

Thanks..

So according to the AG's opinion, the police station cannot charge a fee for the inspections, (which by the way the do)is that what I am interrupting?

They absolutely CANNOT charge a fee, except for notary service, which only applies IF you use their notary, which you don't have to do.

The AG's letter is clear on that point.

The only time you need it notarized is if you get a purchase permit...if you have a CPL and only have to go for the registration...I'm sorry, "safety inspection", then nothing has to be notarized anyway. Show them the letter...if they don't obey, tell them you'll start proceedings against the department.

It's sad how many PD's don't know the laws, or even attempt to keep up with them.

Again, here's the letter from the AG:
