    St. Joseph county OC groups?

    I'm looking for events in St. Joseph County (Sturgis, Centreville, etc.) Can anyone advise if there are any active groups out there? I'm from VA, looking for events for my MI family to connect with.

    Michigan Open Carry (MOC) has some members in that area IIRC?

    http://www.michiganopencarry.org/

    If not you could always (help them) plan a small meet up at a local restaurant that is OC friendly ( MacDonald's, Arby's, etc...). As we say here "post it and a they will come." Heck I drove 200 miles rounds trip once for a OC meet @ a pizza parlor.

    Yeah... you did.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    Agreed on both counts... and I still owe you a soda!

    Best way to stay informed about events Michigan Open Carry is hosting is our mail list: http://miopencarry.org/updates

    As AZ mentioned, we're always looking for ppl to help host events. Email events@miopencarry.org for more details.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    I'm curious to find events for my father in law to get involved in. He's a Vietnam veteran, former holder of a FFL, has his CPL (carries in his boot), but doesn't carry openly. He seems surprised that I OC (supportive and curious, but reluctant) so I'm trying to introduce him to the idea. Maybe we can attend an event in MI when I visit, I think he'd feel more comfortable starting out in a group.

    there is many things going on in kent county. iirc tom is the co-ordinator there? he would be a good point of contact for getting events planned if he is in fact the co-ordinator for the SW region

    The SW regional coordinator is Ryan Adams. Best way to reach SW region team, including the coordinator, is swregion@miopencarry.org


    Funny thing: all our regional coordinators are electricians.
