Register Your Firearm


Purchase permits for firearms may be picked up during business hours.  Please bring a picture ID as this entails a background check.  If you are purchasing from a business that is a Federal Firearm Licensed Dealer (such as Gander Mountain or most gun shops), you do not need to come to our office.  If you are purchasing from a private party, you need to obtain a permit during business hours.  This will include a background check and require you to sign your purchase permit attesting that the information you provided to us is true.  It will then be notarized by the Records Bureau at a cost of $5.00.  After the purchase of the firearm, return the appropriate copy of the purchase permit to the Kentwood Police Department.
