open carry is legal... but you are far far better off to also have your CPL.

One example, many lawyer types will tell you a firearm in legal transport mode is not legal in the parking lot of meijers {or any other place that sells alcohol}, but nobody has apparently had charges brought against them for that infraction.

MI firearm laws are screwy with a lot of potential pitfalls. Learn them well young jedi

LEO's don't know the law. If you really want to know, pay attention to the lawyers who you'll hire to defend you.

migunowners.com is another good source. several good lawyers on there offer all kinds of free advice.

In my FIL CPL course this past weekend, one of the instructors is a long term LEO, he said and I quote, "do not depend on police officers knowing the law". they highlighted the point telling about how an LEO called the gun range asking if a person was legally carrying!

Go get MSP update #86 and read it. Then read it again, about six different times. It should be your bible.

I'm not fom Michigan & you're always better off looking up your state's laws & reading them for yourself, but folks from Michigan tell me it's best to have a concealed carry license even though no license is required for open carry.

It gives you more options. There are places you are not permitted to open carry, but can carry concealed if you have a license. On the other hand, there are places where concealed carry is illegal, but open carry is okay. By having the license you can legally carry more places just by switching back & forth.

yep, it's screwy. But once you begin to understand how it works, it's not so bad. Biggest problem, the passing of bad information by LEO's and even worse, conceal instructors.
