    Or wait no a long gun w/sling resting on your shoulder...ah the long gun pry would not fly because of the no holster thingy. Oh well it was a good dream.
    Technically, I think the long gun is legal. At least, I've seen nothing in the laws restricting.

    If your going to dream, why not do it right?

    I love the look of revolver gun belts, and matching peacemakers sounds good to me!

    I made a gun belt with two serpas, one left and one right. I carried matching Glocks one time, but decided it was too much. So now I keep two spare mags on the left side instead of a New York reload.

    To quote a most famous line...."Only a pimp in a ***** house wears pearl handles"...they are ivory. And in Mich....there is no law against carrying a long gun that I have been able to find, but keep in mind; I can guarantee you will go for a ride downtown.

    Michigan Game laws: Transporting Firearms and Bows and Arrows
    At all times rifles, shotguns, muzzleloading and other firearms and bows and arrows carried in or on any type of motor vehicle...,must be unloaded in both barrel and magazine, and enclosed in a case... Firearms must be unloaded in the barrel, and all arrows must be in a quiver when a hunter is afield outside the legal hunting hours.
    Have a nice ride. I cant see a CO or any other officer not giving you grief.springerdave.

    I've read through that blue book of firearms laws too many times to mention, and I don't recall any law prohibiting the carry of a long gun in public, either. I have had this conversation more than once with a co-worker of mine. The paragraph quoted above is a reference to Game Law, and I don't think it would apply outside a hunting area. Michigan law requires long guns to be unloaded and cased for transport in a vehicle, as we all know, but openly carrying.... If you have the money to fight that in court, you would PROBABLY win it, but is it really worth the money and hassle? A long gun slung over your shoulder would be much more noticeable than a holstered handgun, and would probably prompt a lot of MWAG calls, and you would definitely be hassled. Might be a bit much, and could be negative firearm publicity.

    It is also in reference to a motor vehicle.

    I think a lever-action Henry in a leather scabbard on your back would really compliment those two six-guns on your belt!

    OK Mr. Johnson, (conservitive85) just to let you know, I'll be "baby stepping", OC'n my XD for now 'cause I don't own an "ALL RIGHTY" yet. Give me a heads up when you go to OC your AR. You'll need all the pro-gunners around you that Arnold can carry.

    I carry EVERYWHERE I go. When I go to sleep, it's next to my pillow. When I get up at night, it's in my hand. As soon as I get dressed, it's in the holster. I HAVE open carried, and DO once in a while. I'm exercising my right to decide HOW I want to carry, but I carry nearly every moment I'm awake. Oh, and Jeremiah had a Hawken .50 cal, if I'm not mistaken, and if he had pistols, they were probably muzzie's as well. I think carrying like you want to, you'd be much better armed than poor old JJ.

    Edit for spelling...

    Read the whole post and you will find that part which says, Firearms must be unloaded in barrel and all arrows must be in a quiver when a hunter is afield outside the legal hunting hours. How can you be afield when in or on a motor vehicle? Like I said, have a nice ride.springerdave.

    I took it as a whimsical discussion on the fantasy of OC of a long arm.

    You can OC a fixed blade also, but that doesn't mean I'm doing it. At least, not outside of hunting season.

    Yes, I think we're all on the same page. I can't find anything against it that is not conservation law. Everything I've found is from a Nat'l Resources and Env'l Protection act, and should not apply to a situation that has nothing to do with hunting. That is not to say they would not use that against him, whether it would be legal for them to do so, or not.


    ETA: nice to think about, but to what practical purpose?

    Due to squirrel season, I've lately been carrying a Mora 2000 (would love to have the orange one). I know some people EDC a OC FB, I just prefer a pocket folder to a long knife flapping about my hip. Not saying there's anything wrong with it, just a personal preference.

    "Patton took violent offense at any reference to his pistols being pearl[/b] handled. He said, "Only[/b] a pimp[/b] in a New Orleans whorehouse or a tin-horn gambler would carry a pearl[/b]-handled pistol." In no uncertain terms he would have the offender know that his revolver was indeed "IVORY-GOD-FXXXING-DAMN-HANDLED" and with that he would turn on his heel and leave."
