    I took my brother in law to the shooting range a couple weeks ago for his first time and he loved it. So much in fact that he wanted to go back this weekend. I took him to bald mtn where I normally go, but, b/c of the state furlong days they were closed. So we had to settle for Bass Pro shop (I should have just went to the pitt in Lapeer).
    Anyway I was talking to the employee working the gun range about their OC policy and he stated "we don't allow for people to openly carry and brandish firearms."
    I tired to set him straight but there was no getting through. I also talked to the greeter in front of the store about it and he was very opposed to OC as well.
    Needless to say that's the last time I'll shoot there or shop there. It just pissed me off and I had to vent.

    On the bright side I got my brother in law hooked on the range and educated him on OC and firearms. Next up trying to get him to hunt.

    Yeah Bass Pro is very high and mighty... I will go to Cabalas where at least my 2A rights are respected. They have had their problems as well but at least they are taken care of now!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Yep, just another strike against BPS. I already spoke with the manager and emailed corporate, I received no response from corp.

    My brother and I had gone in to Bass Pro at Great Lakes Crossing to use the range there, and my brother took my pistol in, he has a CPL, I do not (YET!!). It was just easier that way.

    I had my holster on, because we were shopping at other places and open carrying, and the guy at the range counter asked me to cover my holster! No gun in it, but "the customers might see it, and not know that there isn't a gun in it, and get nervous"... at least that was the jist of what he said...

    I haven't been back since, other than to walk through to get to the mall... I won't shop there anymore, until they change their policy. Which is a bummer, because I had ordered some ammo online, and even managed to recieve it in a resonable amount of time. (less than 6 weeks)

    Maybe MOC should officially contact them and ask for an official position, so it can be clarified if we should boycott them as a group, or if they can straighten their policies out.
    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.
