Unlike many other classes in the area….Plus, we do not charge “extra” for range time – it’s included in our rate!

If you are using a rental gun, you will be required to purchase ammo at the range – this will run you an additional $18.00. Eye and ear protection is always provided, at no additional charge.

ADVANCED PISTOL COURSE REGISTRATION
**You must pre-register and pre-pay in order to attend!**
Tuesday, December 29, 2015
Noon – 2:00 p.m.
A KeySlinger is a specially designed leather keychain, which transforms your keys into a tool for SELF DEFENSE. This tool is only effective, however, if the carrier has been properly trained to use it.
The KeySlinger device is simple and discreet. This seemingly insignificant item is readily accessible and offers you a great deal of personal PROTECTION, without notice or cause for concern.
Unlike pepper spray, handguns, tasers or knives, your KeySlinger can go with you EVERYWHERE you go.
Immediately and greatly increase your level of SAFETY and preparedness with our two hour training course in the use of a KeySlinger. It’s easy to carry and use.
Each participant will receive their very own KeySlinger device to take with them upon completion of training. You will leave the class with CONFIDENCE knowing you have demonstrated its usefulness and can protect yourself everywhere you go.
Instruction for this course is based on the “Karate Connection System of Chinese Kenpo” and taught by a Qualifying “International Karate Connection Association” (I.K.C.A) Instructor.
Class is limited to 8 people per session, to ensure proper one-on-one training. This course is open to adults 18 years of age or older, or to individuals 16 and older with a paying adult in attendance.
Class is held at Detroit Arms, 31733 23 Mile Road, Chesterfield, MI 48047 Call us at 586-598-5300 for more information.

6:30 – 9:30 p.m.
If you carry concealed with the intent of using a gun to defend yourself, the last thing you want to happen is for it to be taken away and used against you.
As a concealed carry weapon owner, you must know how to retain control of your gun at all times.
Learn to protect and keep your weapon safe and in your possession, while in its normal carry position, during an assault or physical confrontation, or after you have drawn it during an encounter.
– Mental Preparation & Awareness
– Universal Protection (Initial response to aggression)
– Holstered Weapon Retention
– Un-Holstered Weapon Retention
– Disengagement and Follow-up Considerations
– Alternative Force Options (OC Pepper Spray)
– Deadly Force Decision Making
– If you have a weapon and a concealed holster please bring them with you to the class. NO LIVE AMMO PLEASE. If do you do not, we will supply the equipment and provide information you can use to properly select the appropriate rig for you.
Dress in comfortable street clothes and shoes for each of the classes. Please dress in the type of attire that you would normally wear while carrying your weapon.
While many firearm courses assume that presenting or firing a gun will instantly stop a threat, experience shows that there is a good chance you will end up grappling with your attacker. In fact, criminals often attack without warning, delivering a sudden sucker punch or taking you to the ground before you can deploy your weapon.
You do NOT need martial arts training for this course. The techniques are simple and effective, regardless of the size or strength of the attacker.
You must pre-register and pre-pay in order to attend.

Whether your goal is gaining solid knowledge of safe firearms handling or preparing to purchase a handgun, our one night two-hour, family friendly Handgun Safety & Responsibility class will give you the information you need.
In this class you will learn to handle handguns safely, load and unload them properly, understand the laws concerning their use and ownership, and make a more informed decision as to whether you want to own a firearm.
The Detroit Arms Handgun Safety & Responsibility should be considered a minimum for anyone who owns a firearm or lives in a household that has firearms. Children are welcome if attending with an adult.
Perhaps you just don’t like learning in a group setting and would rather do it without the distraction of others.
It may just be that you don’t have time to commit to one day for eight hours and would like to schedule two days, for four hours each, that work for you.
Our “Private” Michigan Concealed Carry CCW/CPL classes can be one-on-one training, a couple, or group of your own.
Includes training from an NRA Certified Instructor, all classroom materials, indoor range time, snacks and beverages as well as the use of a gun, if needed.
If you use our handguns, you will need to purchase ammo from the range – it runs $18 per person. If you bring your own handgun and ammo, the ammo must be range safe (no steel case/core or aluminum cased ammo). You will need 1 box of 50 rounds.
Click Here to pay online and then contact us at 586-598-5300 to schedule the dates and times that work for you.
Instructors available ALL WEEK to suit your needs. Just say when!
Gun laws vary from state to state and it’s important you know what they are if you are wandering the country with your little friend. Enjoy!
YES! You can carry a gun, open carry, without a concealed carry license – as long as you are 18 years of age or older and have a gun that is legally registered to you. Seem unbelievable to you? Well, it’s not.
Every day I get calls at Detroit Arms asking this very question and people are shocked to learn this truth.
Furthermore, people ask me if we teach a class on Open Carry. Sadly we do not.
Let me tell you something.
I’ve had my fair share of run in’s with individuals highly involved with the Michigan Open Carry folk – if Detroit Arms were to host a class on Open Carry they’d be on me like white on rice (not that they already aren’t) – shooting holes in my “motive” for wanting to educate the public on Open Carry. Trust me – history is a great teacher. Those who choose to ignore it are forced to relive it.
So, in an effort to avoid the inevitable confrontation, I simply hand out their brochure to every single person who asks, and I shut my mouth. The shutting my mouth is the hardest part. LOL
For those of you interested – you can find a copy of the Michigan Open Carry brochure – click the link below.
Yes, it’s true! We are still processing FFL Transfers!
It just so happens that our move in date to the new facility has been delayed, AGAIN, this time until around August of 2016, so we will continue to do “business as usual” at the current Detroit Arms facility located at 31733 23 Mile Road, Chesterfield, MI 48047!
At a paltry $25.00 per item transferred in – the race to buy some truly cool gear for this should be ON as this deal ends on 12/1/15.
Beginning 12/1/15 our FFL Transfer rates are as follows:
Our inbound rate is $35.00 per each item transferred to any individual with a VALID MICHIGAN CPL LICENSE. The rate is $45.00 per person for each item transfered to any individual who does not have a valid Michigan CPL License .
Our outbound FFL transfer rate is $55.00 for each gun – handgun or long gun – that charge includes boxing/packaging and all related shipping charges.
For outbound transfers the guns must arrive at Detroit Arms UN-BOXED and UNLOADED. Ammo may not be shipped with guns. We do not ship ammo.
A valid FFL for the receiving party must be received PRIOR to making arrangements for shipping. We will NOT take your gun in for shipment unless an FFL is in hand. No exceptions.
DETROIT ARMS DOES NOT ACCEPT INBOUND HANDGUNS FROM PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS – EVER!! THEY MUST COME TO US FROM AN FFL. NO EXCEPTIONS. EVER. PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL SELLERS UNDERSTAND THIS BEFORE SHIPPING. We prefer that ALL GUNS arrive to us from an FFL. Because – reasons.
Don’t like that rule? Then by all means, please DO NOT USE our transfers services. I won’t be offended. Trust me. Please don’t challenge this rule. It’s not an option. Seriously. It is not negotiable.
Detroit Arms will contact you when your item is ready for pick up. All transfers are expected to be picked up within 24 hours of receipt, unless prior arrangements have been made.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL US LOOKING TO SEE IF YOUR GUN HAS ARRIVED OR TRACK YOUR GUN ONLINE AND CALL US THE MINUTE IT HAS BEEN SIGNED FOR. Please, allow me to repeat. PLEASE DO NOT CALL US LOOKING TO SEE IF YOUR GUN HAS ARRIVED OR TRACK YOUR GUN ONLINE AND CALL US THE MINUTE IT HAS BEEN SIGNED FOR.
Just based on the fact that your package has been signed for does NOT mean it is ready for pickup. Trust us, we understand that you are anxious to get your item – we will call you as soon as your item has been processed within our system and is ready for pickup.
Please also understand that we are open on an APPOINTMENT ONLY basis. We will call you to schedule pickup when your item is ready for pickup. If these terms do not fit your needs, we suggest that you either purchase your gun at a local gun store that has regular business hours, or transfer your guns via a local gun store that has regular business hours. We do our very best to accommodate everyones schedule.
FFL APPOINTMENTS WILL BE SCHEDULED IN 1/2 HOUR INCREMENTS. You will have a 30 minute window in which to make your appointment. If you do not arrive at Detroit Arms within your allotted appointment time, a $10 fee per every 1/2 hour we wait for you will be incurred. We will wait for a maximum of 1 hour past your scheduled appointment time. Running behind and you call us ahead of time – that’s another story. Just breeze in 45 minutes late for your appointment without so much as giving us a call? Prepare to pay for us to have waited. It’s only fair.
WE ARE OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
If you would rather have the services of a local gun store, Brown Bear at 21 Mile & Gratiot is open for business Monday – Friday 10-8 and Saturdays 10-6. Their phone is 586-949-5348. They have a wide variety of competitively priced guns and also offer transfer services.
If you have any questions, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 586-598-5300.
Let us know if you need a copy of our FFL sent to your seller – drop me an email at email@example.com with the email address of the shipping FFL and I’ll have it on the way in no time!
Hope to see you soon!!
Currently, the only individuals who are able to apply for Exemption from Pistol Free Zones are individuals who are a retired police officer, retired law enforcement officer and/or an individual who is a state certified private investigator.
All other individuals who wish to apply for and recieve an Exempt status on their Michigan Concealed Carry License must wait for new legislation to pass the House and Senate, as well as get signed into law by Governor Snyder. It’s going to be a while….trust me.
Detroit Arms DOES NOT offer Hunter Safety Education Classes.
Please follow this link for more information on how to get your license.
Detroit Arms offers this training every week! Check our schedule for class dates.
Before you sign up for a class, please take a moment to make sure you qualify. There are a number things that could disqualify you from being able to obtain a permit. You can find the details here on the Michigan State Police website.
Michigan is a “shall issue” state – meaning, as long as you qualify from a personal record standpoint, you will be issued a license to concealed carry.
If you have EVER been charged with a felony, please understand that this not only means that you may not take the course, but you may not own a handgun or ammo, or live in a household that contains a firearm. The only way around this is to have the felony expunged from your record – you will need an attorney to do so.
Furthermore, if you hold a Michigan Marijuana Card as a user, you will not qualify for a concealed carry license. The reason is that according to FEDERAL law, the use of marijuana is unlawful, regardless of what Michigan state law says.
That being said, the steps are as follows:
Once you have properly applied and supplied fingerprints at the Clerks office, you will receive your Michigan Concealed Pistol License In approximately 30-90 days in the mail.
YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO CONCEALED CARRY UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR LICENSE IN THE MAIL.
f you have any questions about obtaining a Michigan Concealed Carry License, please feel free to contact Detroit Arms anytime at 586-598-5300 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“What is the difference between a CCW license and a CPL license?” You ask…..the name CCW License was the old term for a pistol carry license. It was called a Concealed Carry Weapon license. Problem being that people were carrying items other than a pistol with the idea that their license made it legal. It did not.
They changed the license to CPL meaning Concealed Pistol License, to make sure people understood that the license was for the concealment of a pistol.
The terms are used interchangeably in the industry.

This Act put into law that people in Michigan who use Marijuana within the bounds of that law are protected from prosecution in Michigan courts. However, the same does not hold true for the Federal courts. Marijuana use, even for medical purposes, is still completely illegal in the eyes of Federal Law.
This creates a problem for those who wish to purchase and possess firearms or get a Michigan Concealed Pistol license.
The federal statute prohibits certain classes of individuals from shipping, transporting, receiving or possessing firearms or ammunition. One of those classes includes people who are unlawful users of, or addicted to, any controlled substance and marijuana falls into that category.
According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF), “Any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana, regardless of whether his or her state has passed legislation authorizing marijuana for medicinal purposes is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance and is prohibited by Federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition”.
Therefore, those individuals who possess a Medical Marijuana Card, as a user, in Michigan as a user may not legally purchase or own a handgun or ammunition.
Furthermore, they will not qualify for a Michigan Concealed Carry License.
One must TERMINATE their Medical Marijuana Card in order to legally purchase guns and ammo in the state of Michigan, or to legally obtain/maintain at concealed pistol license. In order to do so, the patient/caregiver must submit a written request to withdraw from the program including their signature. Include a copy of their valid photo ID and return the registry ID card. A confirmation letter will be sent when the Michigan Marijuana Program has processed the withdrawal.
More information on how to do so can be found by contacting The Michigan Medical Marijuana Program. You can visit their website at www.michigan.gov/mmp or contact their office at 517-284-6400, select option #4, and their staff will be happy to assist you. Office hours are Monday through Friday 8:00am – 4:45pm, not including state holidays.
In case you were wondering…..
Each week we work hard to promote and fill our 1-Day 8-Hour MI CCW/CPL Class at Detroit Arms.
In doing so we routinely come up against other instructors who offer the Michigan CCW/CPL Class in a “compressed format” and sometimes for less money. People are attracted to these classes because they are able get in and out of the class in considerably less than 8 hours, sometimes without even shooting at the range.
Today we learned from a customer who came in to process a gun transfer, the he had taken a class from an instructor who did not follow the law as prescribed by the State of Michigan and that this instructor is currently being prosecuted by the State, and ALL OF HIS STUDENTS HAVE HAD THEIR APPLICATIONS FOR A CCW/CPL DENIED. He was one of them. Now, all these individuals need to pay for and take the class AGAIN, from a law abiding company in order to re-apply!
How much time and money have they saved now? ZERO.
If you have taken a Michigan CCW/CPL Class and that class was less then the STATE MANDATED 8 hour course, you’ve broken the law. So has the instructor, in fact the instructor has committed a felony by signing their name to a certificate with your name on it.
Thinking of taking a class – take it from Detroit Arms. We offer THE BEST CLASS MONEY CAN BUY. We guarantee it. We do them every weekend – what are you waiting for?
Thank you to all of you who have trusted Detroit Arms to be your trainer of choice. For those of you looking for a trainer, buyer beware.
At Detroit Arms, we host a Michigan Concealed Carry class every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year. We also host classes on select weekdays as well.
In order to properly serve our client base, we find it necessary to have a Class Cancellation Policy that requires our students to give us a 48 hour notice if they are unable to attend a class they have registered for.
We are more than happy to accommodate you in a future class if it becomes apparent that you are not going to be able to attend the class you had originally signed up for.
HOWEVER, students who are “no shows” or do not offer us the courtesy of a 48 hour notice, prior to the date of their class, to let us know they will not be in attendance, are subject to forfeiture of their tuition fee for the class.
Our classroom is limited to a maximum of 30 students per class. The majority of those students are first time attendees, coming to our class so they may apply for their Michigan Concealed Carry License.
In addition, a number of our students are renewal students who are with us for a short time during the day – 3 or so hours to be exact, in order to fulfill the state requirement for renewing their existing license.
Some of the seats are occupied by former students who are sitting in for personal review – yes, any one of our students is able to come by for a refresher at ANY TIME, at no cost.
A number of our seats are occupied by family members of current class students – these individuals are former students who are now attending the class with a family member – they are there in a moral support capacity. Yes, as a former student you may do this as well, at no charge, at any time. Just let us know you wish to attend.
Any way you look at it, I can only comfortably accommodate a maximum of 30 people per day for our Michigan Concealed Carry class.
In order to provide our students with the absolute best class in the state of Michigan, and to ensure their comfort during the day, we close off registration for a class when we reach our 30 student limit. We do this to ensure that we have a seat available for each and every student who has registered for our class.
When a student calls the day of the class to cancel, we have now lost the ability to sell that seat to another student who may have been interested in taking a class that day. With proper notice, I would have been able to move your registration to another day and then may have offered your now vacant seat to another paying customer. We are not “double dipping” as you are now occupying a seat in a future class. My goal is to fill every seat, every day, when possible.
When you sign up for our Concealed Carry Class, you have purchased one of a limited number of available seats for this class.
Just as you do when you plan to attend a concert, or a sporting event, there are only a certain number of seats available to be filled. If you don’t show for a Tigers game on date shown on your ticket, that ticket is not honored at a future date. Our class is no different.
We understand that true emergencies happen – putting you in a position where you simply can not attend our class on your assigned date. Unlike Kid Rock, the Detroit Lions, Red Wings and Tigers, we will do our best to accommodate those situations by offering you a seat in an upcoming class.
Therefore, before you consider not showing on the date you have committed to, please take into consideration all of the above.
Our students deserve the best experience possible. Thank you for considering Detroit Arms for your Michigan Concealed Carry training. We are honored to be of service. Thank you.
Certain businesses in Michigan have posted “No-Guns” signs indicating that persons lawfully licensed to carry concealed firearms for self defense are not welcome on their property or within their place of business.
Those are the places I don’t patronize.
