    Tulip Time!

    Anyone planning anything for this years tulip time with, wait for it, actual tulips this year? I plan on attending tulip time one day with my wife not sure which day, Saturday or Sunday but I would love to see a group of open carriers in Holland.
    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

    I know him personally. My opinion of Detroitbiker is he's a very nice/good guy - he just comes across a little "fuddy / gruff" in his posts. This was his attempt at humor in my opinion.

    ETA .- recently took the wife to the botanical gardens here to see the butterflys, so I am sure I have been kicked out of the "He-Man women haters club" too.

    I made banana bread with walnuts tonight. If you want to revoke my man card, talk to my pea shooter (as Q calls it).

    I am going to be there Friday and Saturday with my family, I haven't been there while open carrying. However hope to do so without any issues from Local Law Enforcement. Anyone else planning to attend and OC?

    Carry On!
