    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    That was Q, eating his words.

    I had an epiphony today!


    ... - as in "..." is the three level dots of the sights you see down the barrel when you're aiming (e.g. "focusing") - or, "I'm on it!"


    If this isn't already a thing... I claim it!

    We'll call it... hmm... "Mahnarching".
    That doesn't really have a ring to it.

    "Sniping" is already taken.
    "Flat Lining" is already taken.
    "Doing the Dougie" is already taken.

    Any ideas (I can steal)?
