Private Party Sales/Purchases Require a Permit 

Selling Handguns in Michigan
Michigan allows for private party transfers of firearms, however, there are some additional restrictions for handguns. If selling a handgun in Michigan, a “purchase permit” is required in order to purchase or sell a handgun to a private party.

A purchase permit is obtained from local law enforcement which contains three copies of the license for each party to keep for their records. The buyer and seller must both sign the license and may each keep one copy for his or her records. The buyer must return the other copy to their local law enforcement within 10 days of purchasing the handgun. A license to purchase a handgun is valid for 30 days. Some agencies require all unused license-to-purchase forms to be returned to them for record-keeping purposes.

Selling Long Guns in Michigan
The laws for buying long guns is a bit simpler. To buy or sell a long gun, a person must:

  • Be 18 or older;
  • Provide ID; and
  • Have a background check done by a licensed firearms dealer.

There is no license to purchase like with handguns when dealing with private sales.
