Gun Permits and Concealed Pistol Licenses 


NOTE: Handguns are no longer to be brought into the Sheriff’s Office—inspections will not be done.


Handgun Purchase Permits

Obtain a Purchase Permit:

  • On-line at (for CPL holders only): Pistol Sales Record PDF file.
  • At the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office, window hours are as follows for permits:
    • Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:30pm
    • Wednesday, 6:30am - 4:30pm
  • Any law enforcement agency, within the state of Michigan, that issues Gun Permits.

Persons requesting a handgun purchase permit must:  

  • Pass a criminal background check (Federal and State).

If purchasing a handgun from a FFL Dealer, the Dealer can now perform the background check at their location; you no longer need to come to a local law enforcement agency to obtain a License to Purchase.

 

To Register a Handgun

Within ten (10) days of purchase the buyer must return the “MSP copy” of the Pistol Sales Record or License to Purchase (LTP) to the issuing agency either by: 

  • Mail to: Allegan County Sheriff’s Office, Attn: Guns, 112 Walnut St., Allegan, MI 49010; or
  • At the Drop Box, located in the Sheriff’s Office lobby (lobby is open 24/7).

In order to correctly register the handgun, it is important that the information supplied be complete, legible, and correct; if not, the record will be returned to you, the purchaser, resulting in the handgun not being registered until a corrected copy or new copy is returned.

If the Pistol Sales Record is successfully filled out, the handgun will then be entered and officially registered to the purchaser.

For those who have a Concealed Pistol License, to complete the process of registering a handgun, you must return the “MSP copy” of the Pistol Sales Record to the issuing agency within ten (10) days of purchase, either by: 

  • Mail to: Allegan County Sheriff’s Office,  Attn: Guns, 112 Walnut St., Allegan, MI 49010; or
  • At the Drop Box, located in the Sheriff’s Office lobby (lobby is open 24/7).

Please Note:  it is important to send in the “MSP copy” to the Sheriff’s Office, the “MSP copy” contains information that the other copies (purchaser and seller) do not contain.

 

Concealed Pistol License (CPL) Registrations

Obtain a CPL application:

  • At the Allegan County Sheriffs Office, window hours are as follows for permits:
    • Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:30pm
    • Wednesday, 6:30am - 4:30pm
