To me printing is having the shape of gun showing. Someone seeing the gun is something else.

In NC printing and even a peek is OK unless you cause someone to become scared and the they call it terrorizing the public.

It then comes down to the mood if the cops.

+1 in indiana too, this is an open carry state as well. I carry my full size 1911 in a blackhawk serpa paddle and usually just pull my untucked tshirt over it and go on. In six years of carrying its only been spotted twice, once by a walmart employee who is a high school buddy and also carries. The other time i was in bass pro looking at pistols and a woman next to me noticed it and asked what kind of pistol i was packin, her and hubby were looking at handguns for home defense.

I dont really worry about printing anyways because the gun laws here are pretty lax.

By God I'm so glad I live in Colorado!! Here it is 100% legal to carry in the open or with a CCW, minus of course Federal buildings and schools. We just has a court case where the state supreme court ruled in favor of allowing CCW's to students going to CU. The libs in Boulder absolutely died on that one, everyone else cheered!! The only time there is a problem here is with police officers who don't know or aren't clear on the laws, those problems get cleared up quickly when their supervisors are involved.

If you're OC, you're probably well aware of state police update 86...

Brandishing - as defined by a former MI Attorney General
the term brandishing is defined as: "1. To wave or flourish menacingly, as a weapon. 2. To display ostentatiously. –n. A menacing or defiant wave or flourish." This definition comports with the meaning ascribed to this term by courts of other jurisdictions. For example, in United States v Moerman, 233 F3d 379, 380 (CA 6, 2000), the court recognized that in federal sentencing guidelines, "brandishing" a weapon is defined to mean "that the weapon was pointed or waved about, or displayed in a threatening manner."

I know the laws pretty good. Been doing alot of reading online about Michigan gun laws the past five months or so. But no real world experiance with carrying concealed and someone seeing it. So i dont know exactly whats gonna happen when it does.

I'm told that in Georgia it's quite legal to walk or ride a bike UNTIL you get your driving license. At that point you can no longer walk, run, hop, skip, roller skate, or bicycle. From that point on, even going to the end of the driveway to check the mail must be done from your car.

Now... how much sense does That make?
(Not picking on ya, just that I've heard the same thing before and no one ever seems to be able to post a statute saying so.)

Seems to be a lot of people who like to ride their bikes after they get a drivers license.
