Hello All,

I live in Illinois and my buddy owns a cabin in Michigan and I asked if my Illinois Conceal Carry card held any power in Michigan.  He said "Eye Dunt no".  I will begin my research tonight, but since im still in the drive thru line waiting on coffee and a doughnut....I figured I'd start looking for answers here.

Is there any reciprocity between Michigan and Illinois ( I mean between the State of Michigan and the citizens of Illinois as the State of Illinois has zero reciprocity with any one, including the citizens of Illinois)?  If so is there a formal declaration need like a separate license?  etc.

Plus any other info I should need or know.  Sorry for the brief note, the line is moving fast

Thank you in advance,
Stainless

Michigan honors all resident concealed carried licenses, but resident licenses only. If you live in Illinois, an Ill license is valid in MI. But if you have a non-res license from any state other than your state of residence, that one is not. I live in WI, just across the line from the U.P. Before we had ccw licenses here (prior to Nov 2011) I had both MN & FL non-res licenses. They were NOT valid in MI. Since I got my WI license in 2011, I carry there all the time. I currently have WI & UT licenses. WI one is good in MI because I'm a WI resident, my UT non-res is not. My daughter lives in the U.P., I go there a lot, so I know the laws regarding this. Going there today... I have a valid turkey hunting tag, so I'll have a shotgun along too.  

Also, MI is a "duty to inform" state. That means if you are carrying and intertact with any LEO, you must immediately inform them. Also note, you cannot carry in casinos.

It cleary states that only someone licensed under Michigan cpl law has to disclose.

MCL 28.425(3) An individual licensed under this act to carry a concealed pistol and who is carrying a concealed pistol or a portable device that uses electro-muscular disruption technology and who is stopped by a peace officer shall immediately disclose to the peace officer that he or she is carrying a pistol or a portable device that uses electro-muscular disruption technology concealed upon his or her person or in his or her vehicle.

However, if an officer asks an out of state resident has to show their cpl/ccw.

MSP legal update 86 still has the information.

Thanks for the info.

Personally, I'll still immediately disclose, resident or not. YMMV
