Is a Concealed Carry Permit (CPL) Right For You?

How long does it take for the police to show up if you call them? Do you think they are going to show up in time to eliminate a threat? At The Ammo Academy, we believe that you are your own and your families first responder. Getting a CPL means that you are taking the first step in your training as such.

In Michigan, you must take a CPL course with a certified instructor in order to fulfill the Sate requirements to get your Michigan CPL. Here is a full list of requirements for the State Of Michigan:

This is an 8 hour course where you learn about the basics of concealed carry, home and self defense, firearms basics, the law, and more. This is a big first step, but it is only the first step.

There is a lot going on in the world these days. It can be overwhelming. With that being said, 2020 has proved that there is a lot going on within our own boarders.

The police force is declining in numbers but it would appear that we are approaching record high crime rates this year. If you don't believe me, check out this link from CNN:

Do you have a plan for yourself and your family should someone break into our home, loot your business, or start setting fires in your neighborhood? With a good instructor, you will be asked to do thought or mental exercises to understand what it means to be a responsible firearms owner and CPL holder. Having a plan to avoid conflict, deescalate a situation, or get away is always the best option whenever available. Training is paramount and the "use of deadly force" is an obvious last resort. Should you encounter a situation where that is your only option, don't you want to be prepared for it?

Once you get your State CPL, you will be able to carry a concealed pistol in public and in your vehicle. Training shouldn't stop there, though. It is a never ending process to ensure maximum preparedness for a variety of possible situations to result in a desired outcome for you and your loved ones physically, mentally, morally, and financially.
