You are not divulging all of the interaction. You either have a Michigan CPL or you brought a LEO purchase permit with you when you made the purchase. With either you have already been cleared through the MSP database and then had to clear the federal NCIC background data check in order to take possession of the pistol.
The exception is the Michigan CPL which you have been cleared through a FBI background check that is required before being issued the license to begin with.
Btw you still have to turn in the paperwork to the MSP just as in the past. The only difference now is they do not require the firearm inspection that used to be mandatory.edit on 10/29/2013 by SpaDe_ because: (no reason given)

Youre about the only one who does see my point. Thanks. Ive had firearms legally since 1976. I was addressing here I wasn't asked if I did have either a CCW or CPL. They took my money, scanned my driver's license. Didn't use a credit card and paid cash.
My point with this thread was to stress how easy it was to get a high powered handgun. Just as easy getting a rifle or shotgun: green money and here you go with only the most basic-quick checking, and out the door...
Though I am connected with Emergency Services in my city, I didn't buy it in this city, nor produce any I.D. saying so other than my drivers license.
Yes. It should be easy and simple, and Im glad it was. But, also surprised.
I do not think the OP is complaining but, if you listen to people like the NRA and their never ending "gubement gonna take our guns so you better buy some now" propaganda you would never know how easy it is for anyone to get as many guns as they want quick and easy. Gun companies use fear as a selling point when the fact is we make it easier than anywhere to buy a gun. My fear is with the NRA acting as corporate shills always cry wolf to push sales that someday way down the road if something were to happen to attack the 2nd nobody would take it serious.

No crime in my history. Perhaps yours? Is that you agenda here?
