    I found the site through a guy that was OC in a resturant. I am CPL holder and carry every chance I can. I was floored to see a non LEO carrying open.

    I guess I need to learn all I can about OC before I do.

    With out doing a search on the site is there a link someone can post to the Michigan OC laws?

    the cites are in the post, it's easier to follow and verify that, than to try to find it all yourself.

    and from one noob to another.

    Welcome to the forum.

    There are no laws allowing OC, so you'll probably be a while waiting for someone to cite them.

    Laws just don't work that way. Take your CPL for example. You need a license to CC because at some time in the past, the Michigan legislature decided to pass a law making it illegal to carry a concealed weapon (including a pistol). Before that law was passed, there were no laws prohibiting it, so it was legal to do. After they passed the law making CC illegal, the needed to pass some law making arrangements for those who were "approved" to be able to carry concealed without breaking the law. That is where concealed pistol licenses come in. Had they never passed a law prohibiting CC, then there would be no need for the license (you could just legally do it).

    The reason OC is legal, is because there are no laws prohibiting it.

    Do read the sticky threads on the Michigan sub forum of this board. Pay close attention to the threads titled, "MICHIGAN OPEN CARRY INFO HERE", and, "WASH, RINSE, REPEAT". If you still have questions after reading that feel free to ask (I know it's usually recommended to do a search, but I just don't think this forum's search function is all that great, and don't care to put someone else through it).
