Thread: Letter to Target
I have written a letter that I would like for everyone to read before I send it. Any advice would be appreciated. Let me know if I should post it, or just PM it.
Looks like a good letter to me.
I don't see any need for any "changes"

By the way, I'm going to make it a point to visit the Target in Birmingham tomorrow while open carrying. If anyone local to the area wants to roll with me, let me know. I'm talking about the one in the shopping plaza on 15 and Coolidge. If not, I'll go alone and post my results here.
Ironically, I've been to pretty much every store in that plaza EXCEPT for Target. Home Depot, Kroger, Baja Fresh, Petco, Dunhams, Michaels... I've OC'd in all of them without incident. We shall see about Target, though.
Sorry, but I must ask...What the hell were you doing in Michaels? :what:

I've OC'ed there many a time (Target in Troy, not Birmingham; I know, as I used to work there). Never had a problem at any of the shops in that strip.

Anyhow... I went to the Target in Sterling Heights on 16 & Dequindre (next to the Lowes) and the one in Troy on 15 & Coolidge. No incidents. I didn't interact with anyone at the Sterling Heights store, but I sought the assistance of an employee in the electronics area at the one in Troy and he saw my sidearm. It could be totally unrelated, but he spoke into a two-way radio and a security gaurd (dressed in full regalia, no weapon) appeared in the area shortly thereafter. I stuck around about another 10 minutes or so and then left.
Then I lost my car in the parking lot lol.
Glad to see you had no problems.

If anything, I can only hope that these Target stores communicate with eachother and that the issue of their guests openly carrying will be adequately addressed on the corporate level. In your letter to Target, you may want to include brief mention how other Target stores don't seem to mind when other people do it and ask why you were singled out.
Well I know a person who is a manager for a Target somewhere in Michigan. I'll find out from him if they hear anything.
