    None that I can think of at the moment. I'm still souring the forums for info and enjoying the posts. I'm still a bit sketchy on exactly where not to carry, but I do have a laminated card in my wallet from the class so it won't take me long to get acquainted with the carry free zones.


    On edit: Yes, one question. Where do you enter a signature????

    Welcome!

    Might I humbly suggest that you carry a voice recorder and a trifold on your persons at all times just in case you run into a LEO who isnt up to speed on the firearm laws of this state.
    "Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth." - President George Washington

    "Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." - Thomas Jefferson

    "He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself." - Thomas Paine

    Thanx for the info, but at the left of the page in the settings feature I can edit avatar, profile, blah blah blah, but nowhere is there a sig.


    Im waiting on my cpl was wondering what county you applied in and how long it took?
    Delta county 21 days. The gun board meets once per month so it's possiblt for the process to take much longer. I was lucky and finished the class 3 weeks before the board meeting.

    P.S. Thanx for the welcomes!

    Welcome Greg...

    May I very strongly!!! suggest NOT open carrying until you are up to speed on all the laws and how those laws interact.

    Folks here will try their best to answer any questions, and will provide cites and/or links to any laws mentioned for you to read the actual law itself, because...

    Even the smallest screw up could have devastating consequences.... like prison and the loss of the ability to own/carry a gun for life.

    No one here wants that to happen to anyone.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    I agree fully. I don't plan to OC that often since I do have a cpl, but now and then on the really hot days I may not want to gun or holster rubbing my skin. I may carry it in a grocery store or while fueling the car, etc. I have no plans to OC on school grounds, court houses, hospitals, etc. Hopefuly, I'll have no reason to frequent these places.

    Thanx. I sent a PM. Also, is there a way to make this site remember my username and password? I've gotta sign in every time I stop in.

    Yes, when you enter your username, and password, click on the little box that says "remember me", when the checkmark appears, just login. It will remember you next time. Someties your computer will ask you if you want it to remember your info for this site, check yes.

    If your using a cell phone the add signature will not show up in the coloum, you need a computer web browser. Once its saved using a computer it will always show up even if you go back to using a phone. Im not sure why this is but thats what I had to in order to get a signature. If you wanna change it you will have to do the samething again. The link provided above also works.

    With respect Greg... I mean that sincerely too.... the court houses I put in bold illustrates it is imperative that you be careful to understand all the laws and how they interact.. even before OC'ing occasionally anywhere because...

    Court houses are quite often out of bounds for carry, including OC, due to:

    SUPREME COURT ADMINISTRATIVE ORDERS


    March 27, 2001
    Administrative Order 2001-1

    SECURITY POLICIES FOR COURT FACILITIES

    It appearing that the orderly administration of justice would be best served by prompt action, the following order is given
    immediate effect. -snip-
    It is ordered that weapons are not permitted in any courtroom, office, or other space used for official court business or by
    judicial employees unless the chief judge or other person designated by the chief judge has given prior approval consistent
    with the court's written policy.-snip-

    Can be read here:

    http://courts.michigan.gov/scao/reso...y/cs_appD3.pdf

    Not trying to be nit picky but we have to be careful to know all the nits so we don't get picked by LE for a screw up.

    So please ask if you have any doubt about anything any time.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.
