    I am not sure about open carry but concealed carry with a CPL is allowed after you enter with the gun unloaded and get it strappped at the door.

    On second thought yes open carry with a CPL is allowed under the same conditions listed above. There are always hundreds of people open carrying long guns at the Novi shows. They may be for sale but they are open carried with slings.

    A 'strapped' gun is a club.

    Since the OP is fond of double tap posting of threads I will repost link and info here as well

    From first thread

    http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...highlight=show

    The promoter mentioned in this link went out of his way to visit a OC event on 8-8-2010 & invite us to attend his shows (most are held in Clarkston, MI a few miles north of Great Lakes Crossing Mall. He also does some shows at the Taylor Trade Center in Taylor, MI. Along with some shows in Redford, MI.

    *Note* before attending any Taylor shows please contact the promoter as my experience is the folks that run that place are shall we say prone to suffering from rectal cranial inversion from time to time.

    While I agree that it would be better to be able to carry as the law alows a strapped gun on me is better than none. I have a knife and ammo and only seconds from being able to use. Not the best but better than no gun.

    It may take the rest of your life to cut the strap off, load, chamber and aim. No dice, for me.

    I carry for my protection, and that of my family. No show or store is worth dropping my guard. YMMV

    So you never go anywhere that a gun isn't allowed?

    Yup!

    Unless prohibited by law (got stuck on jury duty), or where I am in a secured facility (at work).

    Other than that, no, I don't. I carry for a reason; there is someone out there who has threatened to kill me and my family.
