Michigan Concealed Pistol License Renewal Classes

Detroit Arms offers in person RENEWAL CLASS for $50 per person, which is a 3 hour training seminar which covers the review of the required training, if you should choose to take a class rather than self study.  

Taking an actual class is not mandatory, but is always recommended.  Ignorance of the law is not a valid defense.  GET TRAINING!
