    I had already been carrying concealed (casually as I knew the laws) before I had an incident in which I was semi-opencarrying and was asked to leave a park. After that, I took on OCing with gusto.

    I open carried while waiting to take my class and then waiting for my CPL.

    After the BS I went through getting suspended for CC when I wasnt, I decided that I just wasnt going to CC at all. My licence comes back in July, but I wont be CCing then either.

    so currently you are oc only because of issues at hand and no cpl but after 2 months you will regain your cpl and oc with cpl?

    i think you can check the oc with cpl. i will remember your vote.

    Yes, I would not CC even with a CPL unless the circumstances are absolutely unavoidable.

    so you are the same fozzy waiting on your cpl?

    you can check with a cpl.

    i am asking if any one that can get a cpl but don't and that non cpl oc

    if you have/are going through the class and are waiting on your cpl you will fall in the with a cpl side.

    orly?

    Perhaps you should repost your poll and reword the question. I don't see that distinction in your question.

    thought i stated it in my posts...

    i didn't think of the people that for some reason can't get a cpl but didn't need to see them vote it was for the people that have all the means to do so but choose not to pay or get a cpl because of what ever reason.

    that help sorry if i confused anyone.

    Yes - that might yield better info. I have had 2 CPLs in the past. I let the last one expire. I just couldn't bring myself to give them my hard earned money for a little more ease in carrying. To be truthful now that I'm going to more and more OC events I am tempted to get another CPL out of shear laziness on my part ! (Load...unload...lock up ammo....lock up pistol....store in trunk.....etc..)

    FYI, your ammo and gun can be in the same case. The gun just has to be unloaded, afaik.

    Thanks Foz,

    That's one less lock to fumble with.

    I OC without a CPL but I have applied for one. I've been waiting 11 weeks as of today.

    There is a big cluster-funk in Wayne County at the moment (or maybe always). I was told by someone that was at the April 14th gun board that I was on the approved list but when I go by the County office I am told I am yet to be approved and maybe in June. Just gave up in frustration.

    I do plan to mostly OC even with the CPL.

    I OC with a CPL, don't know if I'd do it without, since in this state, you need the CPL to get in your car with your weapon, without having to put it in the trunk. And of course, having the CPL gives me more places where I can OC.

    Frankly, I think the whole permit thing is for the birds, but since I don't make the laws, there's not much I can do but complain about it.

    Yeah, I hate the unload and reload when getting in and out of the car. It makes me more self-conscious. Any day now on the CPL, I hope. I think I may make another trip to the county office to see if their story changes.
