    If anyone is interested let me know. I'll be there both days & am offering the ability to ride with me if you're on my side of town. Please let me know asap if you're interested so I can give them an accurate count.

    If you want more info feel free posting questions here.
    Hope to see some of you there.

    Very good question!!! I totaly forgot to ask. Got an answer. The venue stated that open carry is OK as long as it's unloaded & in a holster. Reason being the venues insurance wont allow loaded weapons. I will be OC'ing myself per the venues rules.

    So volunteering while OC'ing is fine as long as it's unloaded.

    I'm not going to be able to make. A lsot of assignments due that following week for school.

    Question. Since they will only allow OC with an unloaded handgun, can you have loaded magazines on your person?

    Yes. The only prohibition was loaded pistols only. Mag's no problem as long as its not loaded and in a pistol.

    If that's a Doug Carl show, the Rules are his not the Show"s. Will Mike Cox be there?

    So far he hasn't answered any of my many calls or emails about open carry or related problems.Remember this is the guy that promised to eliminate the gun free zones for CPL holders if elected.And nothing was ever mentioned again.

    There is no set time you need to volunteer for they appreciate whatever you can do. People are volenteering between 9-5 both days. I myself will probably be there at noon till 5 on Saturday and I'm going to try to be there as long as possible on Sunday. They have less people on Sunday so the more the better. I'll PM you my number so if youcan't find us I can come grab you.




    Novi
    Rock Financial Showplace
    46100 Grand River

    Please let me know if you're going to volunteer before you come.

    Not to be a fuddy duddy but whats the point of O.C.ing with an unloaded firearm (not weapon) that's like having a loaded firearm (not weapon) in your home with a trigger lock.

    :what:

    I dont know about you but it takes me about 2 seconds to drop in a full mag an rack the slide. You must be an old timer Being 2 seconds from ready to rock & roll is better then being disarmed. Just be happy We're not like Cali where they have to be like that by law. Second reason is to get people asking about open carry so I can pass out MOC pamphlets.

    I was just at the show in Novi. They did not allow loaded magazines either. (I surrendered one loaded mag)

    I was OCing but they also tied a zip tie through my gun. Its their building, their rules, so no matter to me.

    Just an FYI.

    I'll be up there tomorrow at noon if anyone would like to volunteer let me know.

    Do you want to volunteer or just visit? Either one is ok. We're kind of in the middle isle the table is surrounded by Mike Cox lawn signs you cant miss it really. If you'd like to volunteer PM me your name and phone number and I'll make sure get you a free pass to get in when you arrive. Parking is $5.

    I'll be with the better half, who will be Christmas shopping, so I'm sure I will just be stopping by. Plus this way I can get a flyer (printer outta ink for over a year now, lol) to keep in my back pocket. Also I'm hoping to pick up a bumpersticker. Although I haven't made up my mind about the Sheriff or the AG, have to wait for a debate.

    I believe the Rock Financial Showplace would qualify as a pistol free area for CPL holders because of its indoor capacity. Just sayin'

    The show was good, I got a few mags, a mag holster, some 30-30 ammo and some .357 ammo.
