    MOC will be holding an open carry seminar at Gander Mtn in Utica on Saturday March, 20 from 11am-1pm.

    Details will be post later at http://www.michiganopencarry.org/events

    I know this is the Cabela's weekend but this event is geared more for non members and people brand new to OC. I'm looking for one or two volunteers who can help out for this event.

    After Gander Mtn. I will be going to Cabela's for the rest of the day.

    Flyers are up on the stores bulletin board. Was also able to put some back at the gun counter along with MOC brochures. A big thanks to Mike who works in the firearms department for providing us with counter space. Many of the staff are wanting to attend to become more educated on OC so they can better educate the customers.

    Went to Gander Mountain today, and talked to a few of the clerks about OC...

    They all seemed supportive, but definitely didn't want to seem preachy, and quickly changed the subject. (Touchy for many, probably scripted to do so.)

    They did however, inform me of the seminar, and gave me a sheet of paper, in which I replied 'Yeah, these are my boys' or something along those lines.

    Good thing to know that Gander Mountain is actively trying to get the seminar information out there without us having to do it for them.

    Oh.. and on another note, their Mossberg 500's are wayyyy too overpriced.

    Glad to hear that they are talking about the seminar. I'll stop by there on my way home tomorrow and check it out. Maybe we will have to drop of more fliers for them!

    Probably a good idea. It looked like there was only a handful left, probably about 15. There were at LEAST that many people looking at guns when I was there at the time, and saw at least 2 fliers taken while I was there; so it's definitely high traffic.

    Sounds like you will have a large event!

    I suspect it will much the same in Portage once I get that one setup.
    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."

    Does anyone have an image of the flyer? I'm curious about what it says.

    Also, the seminar is not listed on GM's seminarspage:

    I don't have time right now to look into getting it added. This is FYI, if someone can and wants towork on getting it added.

    I spoke with Mike, General Mgr. Gander Mountain Utica, this morning. I emailed him the seminar flyer and he said it will be posted on their website by Monday.

    Good luck with this event.

    You MOC guys are doing some great things. Very nice to see good and intelligentpromotion/education/advocacy.

    (Contrast to the Louisiana proposal of posting signs/stickers claiming"Attention Criminals-This is a Defense Free Crime Zone" on the property of companies who don't allow OC.)

    I have to work so I can't make it.A good friend of mine , John J., may be able to make it. He is getting his feet wet on the whole OC idea, so I recomended this event to him.

    Anything that is needed or anything that needs to be prepared for this event that we can help with? Are members showing up early to help set up or will we just be part of the audience?

    I'll be there about 10:30am. Anyone that wants to show up early is more than welcome to come help. Many just getting brochures, membership forms and a few banners put up. If we could have a laptop present that would be a great help to show our website, and assist people getting set up on OCDO.
