    Introducing Myself

    Hello there fellow Michigan Open Carriers. I'm new to the open carry scene and haven't actualy openly carried in public yet. I am licensed to carry concealed (since last October).

    I plan on carrying my Taurus PT 24/7 9mm once a find a reliable and comfortabe hip holster for it. Any suggestions would be great!

    Also are there any folks who get together in the mid-Michigan area (Montcalm, Isabella, Mecosta counties)?

    Welcome aboard!
    I carry mainly in a Blackhawk serpa, and love it, but I don't know if they have one for your piece.

    I OCed up your way this summer at my friends cabin on Lost Lake! No problems in Barryton or Remus!

    I'll check out that site soon! Didn't know Michigan Open Carry had their own website, although I did just become a fan of it on facebook. Looks like I might actually have to register on the website to see upcoming events.

    My dad also reccomended a Blackhawk Serpa holster, which he has for his S&W 1911. I'll look and see what they have availabe, if they do, for my Taurus. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Familiar with both Barryton and Remus, though not Lost Lake. Remus is about 30 minutes north of where I'm from.

    Lost lake is part of the Martini chain of lakes.

    Welcome aboard fellow patriot!

    Immerse yourself in the firearm laws and reherse for police encounters. Find a decent voice recorder as well.

    Barryton and Remus?! Small world, buddy! Barryton is where my family and I camp! We were just up there a week and a half ago. Mother-in-law has a little land in Barryton right on the Chippewa but I normally head up M-66 to Crawford Park and kayak to Evart on the Muskegon. Beautiful little run. Can't wait for fall colors - I'll be heading back there for a "fall color paddle". I always OC up there and nobody's even raised an eyebrow at it. I tend to frequent William's Cafe - nice lil breakfast joint.

    OT > back to topic: I carry my XD in a Blackhawk! Serpa level 2 retention holster. Took some practice perfecting the draw from it but I feel I've pretty well mastered it. I do think they make 'em for your 24/7. They run around $45-$50 generally and I've been 100% happy with mine.

    No one has ever walked away from a gunfight complaining that he brought too much ammo.
