    As far as I know you are good to go. I'm pretty sure you'll need to get your Indiana ltch when you become a resident though.

    I'm from up there, too.

    You don't need a license unless you want to carry here. If you are going to remain a Mich resident, you need to maintain the Michigan license or permit or whatever.

    Or- get a utah, florida or other license that IN honors.

    Welcome to Indiana!


    Also - you don't need the State's permission to purchase here, like you do in Michigan. Indiana does not track hand gun sales.

    So long as you're going to maintain a MI residence for most of the year, it doesn't matter if you have an IN residence as well. Just be aware that unless you are licensed SOMEWHERE, when travelling in IN, there are regs on how the handgun is carried. Once you're at home (or the store or the range or the gunsmith), those regs end, but in travelling, if pulled over, they can mean the difference between ain't-no-thing and $$$$$ for lawyers.

    And yes, you can bring anything in your arsenal short of Class III into Indiana for storage and use at your IN residence without so much as a by-your-leave from government here. I'm just not sure on the legal entanglements for Class III. I know IN state law says they are verbotten even for possession without the proper federal licenses. While living here, you can buy guns, handguns or long guns, from any adjacent state and "import" them freely.
    I don't carry a gun because I live in fear; I don't live in fear because I carry a gun.

    You can bring your gun, take it to the range (unloaded and in the trunk), and take it to the gun store for repair or trade without a license.

    You don't have to see anyone, unless you want a carry license. Then you go the sherrifs department just South off Connor, about a block West of Allisonville Rd. by the fire station. You can start the process online, but you have to get fingerprinted at the sherrifs (edit, I hear lately that you can pay to have it done elsewhere).

    Burt,

    Just to make things clear for you. Indiana does NOT have handgun registration like MI does. You only need a license if you want to carry outside of your house (concealed or open -- IN does not specify how to carry)
