    I'm just curious how many people carry 100% of the time (when legal). Vote in the poll, and leave an explanation if you do not carry all the time.

    ETA: This is in the Michigan forum, because I'm curious about other OCers in my state and would like to limit it to votes from Michigan.

    I voted yes because I have been open carrying every time I go out for the last couple of weeks and I plan to continue.

    I voted yes because...I have "tried" to OC as much as possible. Loading/unloading constantly can be a pain. However I received my CPL on 10/24/08, roughly 11 a.m.. Since then the ONLY time I have not OC'ed was while in the shower, or asleep. Hence my increased activity in the " List your open carry experiences here" thread. CPL has opened up a whole new OC world to me.

    EDIT: my gosh darn grammar and spelling lol

    Usually concealed, but 100% nonetheless.

    I carry whenever and wherever legal and unrestricted. Usually concealed, but that is changing.

    I do not carry all of the time as the nature of my work can unexpectedly take me to places where carrying may be illegal and securing my weapon in mytruck sometimes leaves me uneasy. I still carry mostly concealed.

    I don't carry all the time since I spend most of my time on a college campus.

    Out of 272 Michigan Members only 15 voted??? :?

    And, yes, I carry all the time where legal. Mostly CC due to areas/places I'm required to frequent.

    I only carry when it suites me. It may depend on where I'm going, what I may be doing there, what are the safety risks, or will it impede the work or fun I may doing.
    Sometimes I open carry when confrontation levels low from others ( read managers ).
    Other time I just do what is legal and don't give a Crap.

    I do vary what I carry from a small kahr .40 SW, a Sig P-229 or 1911 45 acp.


    Isn't that the beauty of freedom of choice, my choice.
    The use of force is a last resort. One aspect of violence is that it is unpredictable. Although your initial intention may be to use limited force, once you have engaged in violence the consequences are unpredictable. Violence always brings about unexpected results and almost always provokes retaliation.

    I carry every where legally allowed, and with my CPL that means I am armed 99.9% of the time. Since I found this site most of my time is spent OC'ing, before that I CC'ed as much as could. I even bought a SIG P232 with a tuckable holster for summer carry (what a pain that was) as my CPL instructor was insistent that it needed to be covered at all times.

    I will carry more now that I know what the law is.
