    Nothing. Yep, nothing happened. I was wearing jeans, a light weight black sweater, and a Safariland thigh holster on a nylon duty belt. I didn't feel like wearing a belt and threading the holster and everything else that day, and since I was going to take my gear off when I got to my buddy's house to drink, the thigh rig was a lot more practical. 3 buckles and it's completely off.

    I went to Wendy's and ate lunch. Went to food lion to get groceries. Went into the gas station to get some drinks while the g/f pumped gas. I received less funny looks then I've seen while wearing a belt holster. One off-duty Marine gave the holster a very wide-eyed look, but then glanced up at my face and shrugged his shoulders. Itlooked like he was thinking "oh, well I guess he's allowed to do that..huh."

    Anyway I'm sure I'll end up using my thigh rig from time to time, and I will post in this thread EVERY time I do, just to show the critics that people don't run in terror and call the cops .

    Seems kinda like something a mall ninja would wear in public ( not at the range ). But hey, to each his own. :?

    Open carry is open carry, whether using a belt rig, thigh rig, or even having the gun taped to your forehead.

    Why? It's just a holster, after all. It was hanging out from under my sweater, so really all you could see is the holster onmy leg, as apposed to a holster on my belt. I wasn't wearing 5.11 tac pants or combat boots or a "shoot me first" vest, lol.

    Anyway the biggest difference is that mall ninja's are trying to look cool. They care what other people think. I, on the other hand, don't give a rats patootie :P. Well actually, I do, but I care to the point that I don't want to bring discredit upon my fellow open carriers. That's about it lol.

    I always thought of it as a "Frisk me, officer" vest...

    The holster I carry my CZ in is a modified revolver holster which I would call a cavalry type rig. It's just about as low as a thigh rig would be. No leg strap, but it's pretty puch the same. No problems to report from me. It's just nice not to have to worry about accidentally concealing with a coat.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.
