Go to the MI page of this forum. You will see thousands of open carry experiences there without incident some in Redford no doubt. Next read as much as you can on the laws there and also at miopencarry.org. Can you elaborate on who they are that are bothering you? The city/township? Thugs?
Also until you get comfortable with open carry you may want to attend an open carry event, where you can pick the brains of others who have been doing this for a while. There are many usually in the spring & summer. Picnics etc. I am told there is an event being scheduled for Taylor, MI in the very near future, just 10 minutes down telegraph road from you
