    I did. It was very formulaic and they went through a room of about 25 applicants in less than a half hour.

    OK thanks.

    Do you remember what they asked you? Did they give anybody a hard time?

    I've got some things in my past that I'm wondering if they will bring up (misdemeanor fleeing and eluding 10 years ago and a few other traffic issues... no DUIs though)....

    Tell them ALL MAJOR shit that you got caught doing(IF they ask about your pass)...

    They ask you why you want a CPL... You tell them for "personal protection"... And leave it at that... They ask for what... Tell them cause you want "personal protection" in today's soceity...


    Wayne county doesn't need to go infront of the gun board... So I never went but all my friends went infront of Macomb... Said those things and your all set...

    What kind of gun you looking to get Mike?

    The questions they asked were all simple yes/no and pretty much redundant from the application. "Are you at least 21 years of age?", "Have you been a resident of the state of Michigan for at least 6 months?", etc...

    The sheriff announced at the beginning of the meeting that they'd more less go in alphabetic order. He said if your name was skipped that just means they have a few extra questions for you, and he'd get to those people at the end so they werent' discussing people's dirty laundry in front of the whole group. I'm pretty far down the alphabet and there were about 8 people left when I was dismissed so I assume at least a few of them had "issues".

    I don't know if Macomb's process will be necessarily the same or not. I know Grand Traverse, Macomb, and Kent are some of the few that actaully require you to appear before the board... everyone else just mails them out.

    Me too. Finger prints and a check and 6 weeks. I'm always a little surprised, considering how WA is so full of Lib's, how easy a CCW is to get and how relatively carry friendly the laws are...

    I went through the whole process for Macomb County, if you were in Oakland County all you have to do is fill out a form and send it in.

    But the process is simple, your in a room with the sheriff, D.A, and another guy with your back to the 30 other applicants. They will call each person up and you sit in a nice comfy chair in front of them. You give them your drivers license, they take a look at it, then the questions start.

    1. Why do you need a CCW? Personal Protection
    2. Have you ever had a PPO against you? No
    3. Have you ever had any trouble with the law? No (unless you did, then you must tell them. They have everything in front of them they just like to hear you squeal about it.)

    It took maybe 1-2 mins per person. There were a few that were taking longer because they had some shit that happened 20 years ago in the 80s with a misdemeanor.

    I was out of there in 30 mins, waiting for them to call everyone in is what takes the longest, cause all the people were just getting back from lunch.

    They kind of gave me a hard time about a misdemeanor fleeing and eluding from 12 years ago :ugh: and my current driving record. It was funny, he kept flipping page after page and it was all my traffic violations. There must have been 7 pages :rofl:

    He actually said "Whew... this driving record. It's not good."
