Min age is going to be 21 according to the Michigan State Police website.

Heres the CCW requirement page from the MSP webiste.

Here is the main firearm information page from the MSP, if you plan on getting a CCW permit I suggest you read all of it several times until your pretty well memorize your state laws on firearms.

Now, I didn't notice any laws on how big the concealed firearm should be, but that doesn't mean you want to go out and get a S&W 500 or a .50 DE for CC. Winter times you can carry a lil bit larger framed guns than you can in the summer since you have a jacket and other clothing to help hide the gun. There are alot of guns out there that are great for CC but you have to pick a gun that is comfortable to your hands. Some gun brands to check out would be Springfield Armory's XD line, KARH, Glock, and North American Arms makes some nice pocket pistols as well.

My personal recommendation would be a Springfield XD subcompact in either 9mm or .40S&W. They are great guns I have put over 1000 rounds through it with not one single malfunction. Like I said though alot of people don't like the way they fit their hands. So what you should do is start doing your research on the laws and different types of compact guns. Once you have a pretty good understanding of things get your dad or someone to take you to a shooting where they rent handguns and just shoot a bunch of different ones and see which feels best to you.

In my area its pretty much impossible to get a concealed weapons permit unless you're in law enforcement.
