How old do I have to be to get a CCW/CPL in Michigan?

I am 19 and I am looking to get a CCW/CPL but I've been told that you have to be 21 in Michigan. Is this true? Am I allowed to purchase my own gun to practice at the range or do I need a permit?

    You can not buy a handgun or handgun ammo until you are 21 per federal law. Since you can not buy a gun or ammo, it will mean that some adult will have to buy them for you. When you get a CCW and carry you need to be FULLY responsible for it. That means not having to drag in an adult in regards to the purchase of the gun or ammo. If you could get a CCW before age 21 and you actually had to shoot someone, then the adult that bought you the gun and ammo could be charged or sued for actions that you did. For example, if you were found guilty of attempted murder rather than self defense then the adult could be charged with aiding and abetting your attempted murder. That would be totally unfair for them.

    So .....21.....

    7. The applicant has not been involuntarily committed due to a mental illness, adjudged insane, guilty

    but mentally ill or pled insanity in a criminal case.

    8. The applicant does not have a diagnosed mental illness at the time of the application.

    Check out this site for more information:

    Normally you will not be required to do anything other than fill out the appropriate paperwork and submit a state issued ID such as a driver's license once you are 21. An instant background check over the phone will be done. Some states have a waiting period for handguns. In many such states, the waiting period is waived if you posses a valid concealed carry permit.

    Good luck

    21. You can obtain a handgun, but not from a licensed dealer. You can buy a long rifle or shotgun at 18.
